    How the other half lives

    In response to a posting about the Denver 15mph speed limit, check out the "keen insights" posted by the civilian population:

    FARK

    Actually, traffic laws say that if you're holding up more than 5 cars and not going the speed limit, you're obliged to pull over and let the cars pass.

    I will pull over and give 50 dollars to the first biker that does that. Until then, I'll continue to drive a little meaner around them.

    /I don't care how much more you can see and hear, or how much momentum you save, if it's a stop sign, you STOP! How about that for a farking law, you self-righteous ******bags?
    //Thinks most bicyclists are up their own asses

    Bicyclists = *******s who obey traffic laws when its convenient. If not, its hop and the sidewalk and go through the stoplight. Or down the one way street.

    But if a car does that, its 50ft of biatching from some nancy-boy in a plastic helmet until someone opens a car door into traffic.
    Screw that, use a damn bikepath, losers. You're not Lance Armstrong, get over yourself.

    STFU

    "nancy-boy"? How old is this guy? He probably calls women under 30 "Missy".

    "Screw that, use a damn bikepath, losers. You're not Lance Armstrong, get over yourself."

    And you're not Jeff Gordon. Lose the ego.

    As for the comment about bicyclists being up their own arses, well, it's the damndest thing, but haven't most cyclists had the same exact thought about a lot of drivers?


    Boy, that was fun, in a counter-productive sort of way.
    I thought I was suffering from depression once. Turned out, I was simply surrounded by idiots.

    I read that whole FARK thread. It is quite possibly the biggest collection of people with no IQ that I have ever seen. Bar none.

    LOL fark.com hires people to do data entry type stuff. I posted on rentacoder.com as i do in fact do data entry. One of the replies was from fark.com. Basically they give you a big text file with a bunch of posts and a whole bunch of log in names to use to post under. Once you get a nice flame war going you can stop or keep writing your own replies to keep it going for some extra cash. They only pay .25 of a cent per word though. Course you can copy and paste the text and cheat a bit but you still have to choose some words from a list to fill in sections of text.

    Example nancy-boy prob had pansy ass as a option along with one or to other choices.

    How exactly does this apply to that thread?

    Fark users posting a load of bs? Imagine that

    Chances are a solid half or better of the posts there are from a single person posting from a script with options.

    You see this is why I stick with TF and just steered clear of that thread (and most anything when it hits the main page)
    Also, trolling is quite common on fark and its quite common that most posting the outragous stuff did not agree with what they were saying, in fact, they could be trying to isolate the anti-cyclists.

    hehe good to know. It was the first time I had seen Fark. The last time too I think. It kind of reminded me of talk radio mixed with shock jock type ravings ;p

    Totally off-topic, but ... don't read FARK for its forums. Read it for the wacky links on the front page, and for the (sometimes hilarious) Photoshop contests. Also recommended: somethingawful.com's Photoshop Phriday ... http://www.somethingawful.com/photoshop/

    Don't take their comments on bikes, or anything else, seriously. It's a cadre of trolls out-trolling each other. Sometimes amusing. Mostly disgusting, if you choose to believe they mean what they say.
