    Cycling-in-the-News User Comments Bingo Card!

    Every time I happen upon a media story involving cycling or cyclists, I always tell myself not to scroll down and look at comments. And then I do, and my day goes downhill (Exhibit A). The scary, scary opinions always bum me out, so I thought if I turn it into a game, maybe it would help.

    So, without further ado, here is my new Bingo card for reading through user comments - you're almost guaranteed a bingo! What do you think? What would you add or change? (In case the image doesn't show up below, click here.)

    Recommend following your first instinct and skipping the comments sections on almost all blogs on any subject where you do not want to read emotional and/or nuthouse ranting.

    Also applies to many blogs and most talk radio as well.

    Now that was a meta-comment...

    It was a wise and seasoned comment, which is why I like I-Like-To-Bike in the first place.

    If you want an ulcer and a shrink, read the comments. If you want a nice time meeting folks and passing places where people pay $50 a month to pedal and go nowhere, lock the door and unlock your bike.

    The last line is available for signature lines.
