I like the comment about cyclists being "2/10 of a nose hair" away from the occasional driver in terms of carbon footprint.

And then the response below about how he's worse(footprint wise) for having kids. I think that too (not having kids) but I'd never say it to someone that has kids. Not even on the internet....

"I think that too (not having kids) but I'd never say it to someone that has kids."

Yeah, my thinking too.

Yeah. Good thing you didn't say that.

Just another opinionated, *expletive deleted*expletive deleted* who has a 'mainstream outlet' for his gibberish.

If I could be published, thousands could read MY gibberish, too...oh wait, that happens HERE. But here, it's like preaching to the choir.

I was thinking the same thing but I wouldn't say it.

Yeah, guess I didn't think that one through. I've fallen victim to the anonymity of the internet forum...

It's Filthadelphia; what more can you expect? Based on other articles I've read and comments I've seen on BF from people who live there, it's one of the worst cities to try and get around it no matter what your mode of transportation. Sounds like there's just a lot of angry people on the streets there.
Of course, I'm just going on heresay because I haven't been back there since '96.
