I blame the guy on the bike for riding into a snowball fight:

Another case of victim blaming.

Oh, but he was! No surprise that the outraged citizenry united and gave him what for!

I think what they got there may be the first filmed bicycle stunt-fall. I think the augmented processing makes it obvious how good he was at it. He lands on both feet, the bike keeps going forward and he performs a perfect roll.

And in case you doubt me that it was a staged stunt, ask yourself why he turns around and rides back in the direction he came from instead of continuing on in the original direction?

Wonderful historical document, thanks for posting it!
I know I'm not playing along on the joke, I just can't help admiring the guy's acrobatics.
