    Ha I just spent a week in NOLA. I'm glad my wheels and ass could take the abuse.

    I did eat **** big time last night from a big bump, at 20mph. I don't know how people ride with speed here

    I thought New Orleans was a deep pot hole. At least the part below sea level.

    I don't think so. It's my understanding, that by noon they had to take to the street again..

    Yeah, especially at the beginning, where the guy is explaining something like it's a news report.

    I'm surprised wet foo commuter, didn't give lite-blue bike fishin' man the boot for lack of an early warning - kept his cool though. Maybe wet-foo is still in shock, or wondering iffin they just waxed the floors at the office..

    Humorous POV translation:
    Foreground man: "Watch your step, please."
    Cyclist: "Ouch! Now you tell me"

    I wouldn't be surprise if that's what they did say.
