    actually it's greater than.

    bigger >`/----\,,.' smaller

    2 > 1 .... two is greater than 1
    1 < 2 .... 1 is less than 2.

    I used to have some butterscotch flavoured rum. Stuff was about 180 proof. Used it for caramel sauce with bread pudding. We used to give it out as shots to the staff. Fun watching them gag and spew in the halls.

    Maybe I can organize for hot Glühwein (hot mulled wine). I have never made it before, but I enjoyed it when I was in Munich! Warms the bones amazingly well.

    Yay, I finally got my good peds for my SS MTB, and I won a Surly Tuggnutt on eBay. I'm a fixed wheel away from completion!

    BTW: the snow ride idea still exists. For a reminder in this balmy sex-pot weather, go here!

    Someday my friends. Someday...

    by the way, watch out for Diamond cab #3227.

    he doesn't like to share the road with cyclists. apparently we shouldn't signal and take the lane in order to not get run over. i tried to warn his fare that he wasn't safe...(pulled a bogus u-turn and came awfully close to a cyclist in front of me) i wonder if he still got a tip?

    there really must be a way of proper enforcing proper training for cabbies... or at least keeping record of incidents.

    (don't even get me started on tonight's news report about "distracted drivers")

    Don't know how many times I've nearly been hit by the random cabbie U-turn. Bloor street is just wide enough for cabbies to pull that BS.

    P.S. It's not just cabs though. It seems that everyone, big car or small, cabbie or not, consistently make bad decisions that endanger the thousands of cyclists in the city. I've been riding with more care, and noticing a lot more obnoxious behaviors ever since being hit on Yonge.

    for real. i'm constantly thinking about what could be done in toronto to make drivers realise that. my most endearing thoughts so far are: a) something like the chick uses in "snow crash" to stick a warning flag on a vehicle or b) a "wall of shame" of plate #s...

    but seriously, i was hit 2 years ago this week by a delivery driver pulling a u-turn @ king/bathurst. big wake-up call. the unfortunate thing is, when i tell people, they get scared about riding. the less cyclists = less attention by drivers = less cylists = less attention from drivers and so on. and need i remind them it's january and there's been no snow?

    The best way to increase safety, is to increase the number of cyclists. Fortunately this doens't seem to ever rise above a meaningful enough rate for drivers to warrant any attention.
