Some students were painting the road last night...
There's an area of the University of Georgia that has traditionally been a 'free-speech zone' where all the Bible-guys, wiccans, etc. hand out their propaganda. What's interesting is that this extends to the patch of road directly in front of the biggest bus stop on campus, so that people are essentially free to grafiti that small patch of road, and as such, the asphalt is covered in many layers of paint and is constantly changing. The painting is usually done at night and reasonable efforts are made to warn motorists, so no one gets run over.
Last night, I was riding, and three dumb girls where painting the road and had no lights, cones, flares, anything. ********, obviously.
I assumed they were just peds crossing the road (I was kind of zoned out riding along), and when I was about 20 feet away (going 20+ mph) I realize, that they are, in fact, in the process of painting my entire lane with white paint.
So anyways now I have whitewall tires. Sweet.
