Strike like an eagle and sacrifice the dove.
Words and Stuff.
I'm always generous.
With sarcasm and insults.
Now all of you, get the hell out of my thread!
I'm quite certain you could see the steam coming out of my ears.
And you don't make the 200 mile round trip to Evanston, Wyoming with your coworkers to buy them, ok?
We called it a team-building exercise.
This new forum look is so buggy it's driving me nuts. I have to click several times to get into the site and several times again to get into posts, then try to post responses and it comes up with a blank screen so I click the back arrow and all the stuff I wrote is gone. Not sure why you had to go and mess up a good working system..whatever so I give up, so this is goodbye, maybe I'll try back in after a year in the mean time I'll give Bicycle Times a try.
If you do ever shut it down, I would hope you would create a section specifically about laws concerning biking. I find it incredibly helpful to read through the different conversations about legalities with the folks here.
TEST, This is a test to see if the (hilarious) cartoon image will post properly:
Under the new system, sidewalk parking for all vehicles becomes not only mandatory but also illegal — a one-two punch expected to fatten the Department of Finance’s coffers by an estimated $13 million per day in added traffic summonses!
Cleared of all vehicular traffic, streets can now be sliced into seven lanes serving almost every purpose except driving:
A — TRAFFIC AGENT LANE. A personal walkway for those peripatetic squads of uniformed men and women sworn to wander the streets and catch the culprits who get the tickets that pay for the uniformed men and women.
B — SKATEBOARD/SCOOTER/SEGWAY LANE frees up sidewalk space for runaway taxicabs, double-parked U.P.S. and FedEx trucks, outdoor restaurant seating, etc.
C — BRIDLE LANE brings new hope to Manhattan’s imperiled equestrian industry.
D — RUNNER/JOGGER LANE will ease foot-traffic congestion in Central Park, Riverside Park and other open spaces. ($65 fine for running/jogging in the wrong direction.)
E — PROHIBITED LANE. A revenue-bonanza no man’s land with no purpose except to slap the unwary with a $95 fine.
F — BABY STROLLER LANE. Those clusters of gabbing pram-pushers can at last roam free without blocking pedestrians. (Unoccupied strollers subject to $65 fine.)*
G — BICYCLE LANE. As many as seven cyclists per hour are expected to exploit this lane.
* Baby Stroller Lane becomes Dog-Walking Lane from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m.

Can I make a request for feedback on my recent posts, I don't know if perhaps I crossed some line. They are all semi on topic, semi off. If I need to not post them, please let me know. I promise to NOT hold it against you. Constructive citicism is also welcome.
Additionally, if I'm wrong on something, its not intentional. Please let me know.
I read a lot and often, end up knowing, (or thinking that I know, when I really don't) more than is probably good for me.
I especially don't want to annoy people pointlessly.
Oops, I posted before I read this sticky.
Reverborama sent me.
When you "Go Advanced" and used the "Manage Attachments" feature on this site, it creates a thumbnail preview to show an image that has been uploaded and is now stored on the BF servers.
Does that make sense?
That's gonna leave a mark.
