    You're fine for a ride. There won't be a storm until I head home around 9:00. Although my weather bar on Firefox is telling me no T-storm, so it must be true...

    Sunny down at the lake here at 1 Yogne. I can't eat ANYTHING beef-like here at the cafeteria of it'll shread me within a half hour. Otherwise I usually have a stomach of iron. Except when I initially went to the all you can eat Korean grill. That hurt. In my agedness, oil and deep frying have caused grief on occasion. That and cheap olive oil. Keg Mansion on Sunday for a birthday dinner....STEAK!!!!

    It looks like Lockwood may line up with a pedestrian path:

    If you enjoy the cow slab as I do I highly recommend the Banknote at Bathurst and King. They do an excellent Angus strip with mashed and grilled veggies for like $22. Myself and the girl go there very regularly and have never been disappointed.

    So, here's the start of my new Vehicile ****list. I'm thinking it might be a fun project for a website, actually. A database of license plate numbers, car descriptions, and event descriptions. Then you could search by license plate number and find out if the same car has been involved in multiple run-ins.. and perhaps we could even have an option for the drivers to defend themselves (and then get ripped to shreds of course).

    ****list Vehicle #1: 505 8LN. Light blue dodge (I think) pick up. I'm making a left from Harbord onto Ossington. I shoulder check, see a pickup truck about 100' back. I signal left, and move in the center of the lane. As I approach the intersection (very much a red light) I start slowing down, and down a couple little (and I mean little) "swoops" to bleed of a little more, and quite honestly, because it's fun. Just as I start the little swoops I can feel/hear the truck is starting to pull into the curb lane and
    I assume he's going to make a right turn. I stop and I hear a voice. I look back and the truck is straddling both lanes and the driver has the window down and is looking straight at me. I roll back a couple steps and say "what's goin on?" (in a friendly way, not a confrontational way.. kinda like "What's up?").

    him: "what are you doing?"
    me: "ummm.. turning left?"
    him: "you shouldn't be swerving all over the road"
    me: "I was just slowing down"
    him: "you shouldn't be swerving all over the road" (I don't know if he repeated it exactly, but close enough)
    me: "I moved this much!" (holding hands a foot apart)
    him: (incoherent grumbling)
    me: "Why? were you trying to pass me 25' from an intersection with a red light?"
    him: (more incoherent grumbling)
    me: "you know, 3 cyclists have died already this year because of this type of behaiviour"

    ==light turns green==

    I start peddling and of course he passes me in the middle of the intersection. I point at his license plate, he flips me the bird.

    *sigh* Just felt like sharing the story is all. Apparently deaths have no effect on people in a hurry!

    Just got an e-mail from the H.R. person at City. Mr impatient truck driver apparently got a stern lecture and a warning on his employment record. I am going to assume this actually went down and puts a serious smile on my face.

    ^^^^^sweet^^^^

    I totally want to blaze with some electrical engineering geeks and get out the paper and pencils. I want a glove of power that will direct an electromagnetic pulse through my fingertips into the engine compartment of knobs that might be liable to cause death. Instantaneous vehicular death as all circuits are fried beyond salvage.

    I mean what's wrong with these people, can't they see 'oh yea...I could kill him by accident' "ah **** it..it'l be close bit I can make it, DAMN he scratched my bumper"

    anyone could have been killed there soooo easily.... bikers, drivers, passengers, it wouldn't have mattered. Glad to see the cops were right on top of things *dripping sarcasm*
