    No, that isn't the case. Though, you may have check that "recalculate" is off.


    The trick is not have the course end at the start (end the course before the actual end point). You want to be...
  2. It appears to be a 4 lane road (2 lanes each...

    It appears to be a 4 lane road (2 lanes each direction) with a 50 mph speed limit. And cars are fairly frequently parked on the shoulder (in more residential sections). CA doesn't require the use of...
  3. You said the close pass was safe. And, it's not...

    You said the close pass was safe. And, it's not "technically" legal in any certain way either.

    You aren't making any sense either.

    And, the close pass occured in a three foot law state anyway.

    :rolleyes: You said you didn't intend for it to be an insult.


    Why ever would you use something you know is an insult when you don't intend it to be an insult?


    You really make no sense...

    Nooo! Defintely not!

    That "impression" really isn't there (and you have to look at what I was replying to).

    (You want to be careful supposing people mean something "extreme" that isn't actually...
  6. It's actually fuzzier than that. The SCOTUS...

    It's actually fuzzier than that. The SCOTUS case(s) are regarding flipping off cops, who, presumably, should be resistant to minor "provocations".

  7. You (and others) pursing this line keep...

    You (and others) pursing this line keep forgetting that it was was the driver who provided the initial act of provocation (*): he passed much too close when there was no reason to do so).

    * Yes,...

    The cyclist didn't really "escalate" the situation (he kept doing the same thing). The driver certainly escalated (repeatedly).
  9. Yes. I said so earlier. But that's not what I was...

    No one has the legal right to assault someone that verbally insults them and that's the bottom line. You can be upset that someone waved a specific finger your way, but that's all you can legally...
  10. ??? This doesn't describe this situation at all.

    ??? This doesn't describe this situation at all.

    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    There obviously is a standard. Not everybody uses that standard.

    You are claiming that the pass was "safe" because the rider happened to be lucky not to have been...

    No, flipping a finger is pretty-much universally an insult.

    It's weird and delusional to claim otherwise.

    It's possible that people you know in certain contexts might not treat it as an insult...
  13. This is how to be pedantic! :lol:

    This is how to be pedantic!

    :lol:

    :rolleyes:

    Well, that doesn't make sense.

    That you don't intend to insult when using what is nearly always understood to be a insult is crazy.

    You thinking that you are "letting them know...

    Interesting!

    It's noted as an exception. It doesn't invalidate my point.
  16. This is not "reality based". Your private...

    This is not "reality based".

    Your private definiton of what you mean by doing it doesn't change the near universal understanding of it as an insult.

    Do you call cats "dogs" and expect people to...

    :rolleyes: You seem very quick to be angry about stuff.
  18. I understood what you wrote. It's wrong in a...

    I understood what you wrote. It's wrong in a basic way.

    The whole "technically, it's safe if there happens to be no contact" is just wrong. It's actually kind of crazy.

    By your bizarro logic,...

    RR3 is a soon-to-be topic of discussion at the local grand jury!

    Silly.

    At this point, qualifying for a driver's license should include having the bird flipped at the candidate and denying it if they react like a monkey. Then, again, if a silly hand gesture so...

    Dave Cutter did. And the OP appears to think the silly hand gesture is worse (remember, the credits the driver with restraint!).



    Silly.

    "Self defense"? Huh?

    No, that's just silly. The assult is a possible felony. The flip is not any sort of crime.

    The facts are before you and you choose to ignore them.



    You aren't even a competent pedant.

    :rolleyes:

    The act of fighting, then.


    So, here you are talking about fuming like a nutcase as a response to being "tested"?
  25. Your first premise is silly. The rest of your...

    Your first premise is silly. The rest of your argument fails as a consequence.

    The fraction of flips that lead to actual fights is very, very small.

    There's no physical/natural law that compels...
