    European countries average about a third the murder rate of the US. Whether or not their system is good for us, it's obviously working for them. Not something to complain about.

    That said, knives and guns are terrible for locking bikes up; they're very easy to defeat, usually with simple bolt-cutters.

    No, but I had a bike stolen during the infamous L.A. Street Scene in September of 1985 while attending a Midnight Oil concert where armed police on horseback charged the stage in the middle of "Power and the Passion".

    The thieves took the bike with a bolt cutter but left the lock and chain. All of downtown L.A. was in a riot that night, so I inserted the lock through the ends of the chain and walked back home ready to use it as a weapon if needed.

    Two summers ago was riding downtown when some plump chick cut me off pretty fast in a honda civic, pushing me into the traintracks/where cars also ride over. almost lost control, barely missed the tracks themselves with my tires...I sped up in traffic, mashed the pedals for all i was worth, and drew my Krypto mini from the backpocket. Approached passenger side window when she was @ the red light 5 or 6 blocks up from where she cut me off, piled behind a few other cagers. One fast whack (even with the weaker left hand!!!!) completely destroyed her window. I heard the most angry blood curdling scream as i continued through the redlight. My adrenaline was pumping and i truly felt victorious.

    and last night had a situation similar only this time I happened to flip off the driver after cutting me off (bad move on my part). He slammed on his breaks ~30 feet in front of me, and moving pretty quick myself, had to swerve for the 2nd time. He got out of the car calmly and approached me without saying a word, I drew the mini again and had it ready. he got back into the car, no problems...
