That's not stupid at all. I had to yell it out once too.

Do they make that shirt for men too! Discussing parentage issues with a local Dodge Ram Asswipe that likes to skim cyclists. The pendejo stopped at a light and the discussion ensued. Need to learn to be les vocal to reduce these encounters.

The stupidest thing I've had to say to a motorist?

"Why are you driving on the bike path? There's a sign right there that says 'NO MOTOR VEHICLES ALLOWED'"

These aren't stupid things I've said. Instead, these are things I had to say in stupid situations.

1) There are parking spaces right over there.
2) This is a diamond lane.
3) See that No Parking sign right in front of you?
4) Get off the phone. It's a green light.

You know this isn’t true. There’s not even an argument there.

”Automotive design peaked in the mid 80s.”

That’s a reasonable assertion. Maybe.

”I don’t need a car with X,Y, or Z, so neither should you.”

You don’t need a bike with two wheels, but I’d bet you enjoy them more than a bike with one wheel.
see above.

Oh his mother was a nice lady a little clingy but it happens. He might be an a-hole but his mother was a good time


Saying get off your phone is not stupid it is rather smart and an unfortunate part of existing in this world. The reason we have to say that is stupid but the actual phrase makes sense.

I once got hit by a teen girl driver and was knocked off my bike. She was helping me get back onto my feet, and the first thing I said was "where are my tacos?" I guess I was hungry.
