The fact he had to tell his audience he was using sarcasm is a strong indicator he is no comic.

He kept his cool, which says a lot!

I know from personal experience if you attack a motorist like that, it may not end well for the cyclist.

A broken window over some words is quite the reaction.

If you try hard enough, you can always meet trouble halfway.

That cyclist is seriously emotionally unhinged. Reminds me of a few on this site

The idiot with the bullhorn got exactly what he was asking for. I am not implying his subject matter was right or wrong. It was that annoying voice. After less than a minute I fast forwarded to the man with the bicycle. It appears that the man on the bicycle is very weak. I have found over the years that it is easier to take out automobile windows with my fist. I prefer to whack people and the occasional violent dog in the head with the front wheel of my bicycle. But now that I have become older I keep an MSR 11oz peg hammer in my handlebar pack.

This gets old with OP's just posting videos and links without making any comment about how they feel or why they even feel obliged to post.

Cutesy titles and a blurb or two in a poorly constructed sentence leaves a lot to be desired.

I'd really like to see the condition of that guy's rims after he used them as a battering ram

Why do you feel obliged to comment if you don't like these threads or posters?

I find it rather amusing how easily triggered many people have become.

Ignore them, or me, I won't mind!

I'll take a wild guess that the window replacement will cost more than that entire bicycle was (is) worth!

Most bikes are lousy weapons.

Words however, could be fatal!

Mind dead, copy and paste, narrative free posts are the hallmark of the intellectually challenged. I don't really see safety or advocacy value in it either.

I just find it a little less than amusing that in a forum that is all about conversation, some just provoke conversation without sharing their own feelings or views by simply linking an article or video.

Ignore me, I won't mind. This is after all a public forum. Both You and I will always have those that disagree with us.

In all seriousness I was surprised that it took that long for someone to become violent.

This is really a stretch of advocacy and safety. It is about stirring up trouble. Let’s end it. Thread closed
