Why the fark don't any of these countries have crosswalks?

Good on you man.

Nice bike too.

It seems like that street is the last place I would want to be on two-wheels.

And then there are the group of young asshat motorcyclists on I-890 last night, busy filming each other driving FAAAAAST or something, and in the process, cutting off other drivers to get the money shot and nearly causing several collisions.  Good to see the good drivers getting kudos to remind me that not every cyclist is a moron.

Cut me off doing these shenanigans all you'll find yourself with a large SUV up your arse.  I'll take my chances on the collision with a bike.  I'm pretty sure I'll come out it OK

I was once driving home on a busy 3-lane one-way street in downtown during rush hour traffic, and I saw a small dog running between cars in the street with a leash dragging on the ground, and a distressed looking old man on the corner.  So I pulled my vehicle across the lanes of traffic, ran out and got the dog, and delivered him to the grateful old man.

People in cars behind me were applauding.

Kind of a threadjack, but I've always been proud of that and I've never told anyone in real life.

What is it with ancient older people in Russia crossing streets?  I mean you see a shiat ton of them on dash cams going off curbs attempting to cross busy streets where a spry young person would fear to tread.

Have you been to Russia?
Well they have...for a long long time.
If you spent that much time in Russia, you'd probably spend the whole day crossing the street... back and forth... back and forth...

People are generally good, they're just too lazy to do good deeds.

While I generally agree, I wouldn't quite call it laziness.
People are pretty good at inter-personal communication on a small scale.  When crowds get involved, or (like in a car) interpersonal communication is inhibited, they can default into terrible apathy and/or aggression.  If someone slights another on the road, being able to see a simple (friendly) hand gesture can determine whether the other forgets completely in the next few seconds, or seethes with anger, tailgating them for blocks.  If someone collapses in front of you, you are more likely to ignore them completely if there are others around, than if alone.  Its something that should be taught in school and up-kept with regular training.

After lurking in the Chrome thread that I did not have a horse running in, I think he hates everyone.  But not as much as he hates himself.

With out a doubt asshats like that need to take it to the track or loose their license, their ride, and possibly some of their freedom.  That said, I read your profile...  You farking know better if your "good" section is in any way accurate.

I did something similar but it was some big ass turtle.  No leash, no old man.

Dude, don't state it on the internet. Good lawyers search for shiat like this and use it against you. Talk in code, like this:  The Chair is against the wall... John Has a Long mustache...

Very nice. Someone did that for me once. My dog darted out into traffic and got hit on a very busy, but very dark street. I was so shocked that I wandered back inside my apartment in a daze. When I had no dog and couldn't talk, everyone figured out something was up and one of my roommate's buddies darted out onto this dark street and retrieved her body for me. It was too late to save her as soon as she ran out, but I appreciate that someone tried for me. I was too farked up to function. A few years later, we were heading to a friend's party, and I saw a dog get hit once or twice and nobody stopped. I did the same thing that someone had done for me, and was in time and able to get the dog to a vet with after hours that would accept injured strays, as there was no owner around.

My point is simply this.  If you a driving a motorcycle in a reckless manner, don't look for me to feel bad if you cut me off and end up with my car up your arse.  I've ridden motorcycles and I do a lot of cycling in Florida.  I've seen firsthand what reckless riding of either can can turn into.  I choose to not to do those things.  I can see all sides of the argument but I'm simply not going to feel bad if you drive like a dick and end up as my hood ornament.

"If that was me... I'm... I'm just sayin', if that was me, they are lucky that was not me, because if the circumstances were such, as you have described them but with me in them, that's a very different and scary outcome for those involved. If."

Spaghetti Eatin' Goombah: Я хочу сказать, просто это. Если вы за рулем мотоцикла в безрассудной манере, не стоит надеяться на мне чувствовать себя плохо, если вы прервал меня и в конечном итоге с моим автомобилем в задницу. Я ездил на мотоциклах, и я делаю много велосипедных во Флориде. Я видел своими глазами, что безрассудная езда из любой из них может может превратиться в. Я выбираю не делать эти вещи. Я вижу все стороны спора, но я просто не буду чувствовать себя плохо, если вы едете как член и в конечном итоге, как мой капот орнаментом.

Wait! That's a Russian helmet-cam/dash-cam video? I was expecting a fiery school bus t-boning an 18-wheeler transporting gasoline. Or a car expelling a spare tire out of a hatch-back. Or three wheels simultaneously coming loose on a vehicle. Or at least a fiery meteorite exploding.
