    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Everyone else is doing it. All some folks need is an excuse.

    I'm trying this starting today: when you're about to judge someone, find something to distract you from doing so. Read some one-off information. Play a short game. Do anything to let your own thoughts mold a character of someone that will never be a part of your life, and focus more on improving your own.

    I hope this works.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    Some people don't seem to care much about punctuation either....

    Something that might help is this: People often react to how you are. I play over in P & R a lot, and find most everyone very polite and reasonable. Now, I am sure many people would disagree with me. But, I try to be polite and reasonable, so people respond in kind.

    I find 80 % of the people in the world, if not more, to be good people overall, with the same needs and wants that I have. And I know they aren't spending much time thinking about me, they have their own issues, etc.

    If you are happy where you are, generally it is because you are there, and if you don't like it, often it is the same reason. The only thing in the world you can change is you - and it is generally what makes the biggest difference. I have seen a lot of people waste a lot of money moving to say Costa Rica and hating it after they move.

    well said. you have to focus on yourself first.

    But it sounds to me like the OP is a reaction to a bad day, etc. We all have them.

    ilikebikes, you definitely don't sound like the whiny complainer type from most of your posts...if you just had a bad day, hang in there and know that while you're only human and can get upset, there's no need for condemning the human race. There is good and bad out there and it's all part of our world.

    I had to read that twice - I think he meant he is nice so he gets nice back. I'll admit I don't play in P&R much because I haven't always enough nice in me for that place.

    That, and I haven't much intelligent or useful to add

    It won't, and I can't believe you need to resort to such silly tricks to keep you from judging others.

    I'm not sure this can be implemented.

    Yeah, most people suck. I try to ignore it as much as possible.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    I think it's split pretty evenly...some people suck, the rest blow.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
