Re: “Cool Old Lady at the Hawthorne Bus Stop

Fuck yes. That little thing, some people just have it. Like checking your pace by half a step to let the turning car get out of the street before you charge into the cross walk, moving over to the clear lane if a car is merging onto the highway. Moving over if someone wants by, holding a door. Yes to all of this.

Re: “Use Rubbers in the Classroom

My grandmother called erasers rubbers too. I don't know if that was because of the material they were made of or the act of removing the pencil marks.

Re: “2014 Resolutions

No.

You do not get to start a thread saying "If you ride through a stop sign and get hit by a car" and end it with don't say 'but cars kill people'"

The fact of the matter is that very few cycling fatalities (very few fatalities period) are caused by cyclists running stop signs, though plenty are caused by cars running stop signs.

Re: “So, Portland is the Beer Capitol of the World, Now?

Hell yeah. And when a bunch of people go blind from drinking unregulated, uninspected hooch, we can just sue. Or whistle, for all the good it will do.

Re: “Another Pearl Jam

The city isn't playing fair.

The Pearl gets wooden planked sidewalks, wetlands, and million dollar fountains. While the park in my hood has muddy ruts from the groundskeepers driving around the paths in trucks that are too big.

Double standard.

Re: “I, Anonymous

Use all available roadway space. Merge late: 1 for me, 1 for you, 1 for me, 1 for you.

Or cram over as soon as possible and kvetch for 20 minutes as traffic approaching at 60mph slows safely before merging.

Re: “Coined.

Isn't counterfeiting a federal offense or some shit?
