People in cars


As you've probably been made aware, it's "bike to work day" on Friday. People are always so smug about how great it is to ride your bike to work. Somehow, you're superior a person for doing it. Nothing is further from the truth. You're a hedonist. Riding a bike is fun When you ride your bike to work  it's like you get to play outside before and after work. If you drive a car, you're probably stuck in traffic with a bunch of assholes. Even if you have a cool car, you don't get to drive it in a cool way, because you cannot move. If you take public transportation, you sit there with some people who may or may not be yelling loudly or smelling bad.

This bike to work day, drive your car to work instead. You'll probably arrive at work in a worse mood than usual. Then, drive home and your family or whoever it is that sees you after work will be surprised how unhappy you are.

Have some sympathy for drivers (not all of them, but some), they don't get to play outside before and after work.

Actually, this Friday is bike to chainsaw training class day. I'm just hoping one tank of fuel in the saw is enough.

You mountain the chainsaw on the front of the bike like this, http://inhabitat.com/insane-russian-attack-bike-is-powered-by-a-chainsaw/, right?

If you ride your bike you should hug car drivers, or maybe they want to jump your sexy bones?

I have done the Buy an Axe on your way home from work and strap it to your bike thing... but never the chainsaw.
