TSHT...The Stupid Human Thread
To put this image in perspective, I'm a-scared to drive this road in my truck!!

Correct me if I'm wrong but are those headlights I see on the dark vehicle ahead of the bike rider in his lane?

looks like it but he is carrying his airbag in case a headon happens.

Oh and no helmet either.

Rather appropriate - looks like the picture was taken right next to a cemetery, with the proper strike angle a good hit should throw him right to his final resting place. Seems like he has a master plan and you only though he was stupid.

But, he's more "visible" and therefore safer by "taking" the lane....... I think the photo proves Darwin's theory about natural selection...

I'm sure he feels safer being able to see what's going to hit him. I doubt he could do much to get out of the way if he had to...

Yup, you nailed it! Right in front of Falls Cemetery.

I first noticed this dude in the road from the east side of the 390 overpass and I imagine he intended to ride all the way to his destination just like he was. He blew right through the red light at Ridge & Latona!

I don't remember now if I saw him or heard his squeaky bike first! :eek:

I was glad I had my camera anyway.

:roflmao2: At least he has a helmet and he's riding with traffic!

Didn't happen to me and no pictures but full of S.H.s

Just love reading Darwin Award stories. Justifies my personal feelings about most of my fellow man.
