Just a little something to piss you off before the weekend!


Blarg..

I only quickly perused the article on purpose because I know it'll seriously piss me off. That and it's the Post so who really cares what a bunch of overweight and ugly retouched people have to say about something they're just jealous they can't enjoy as well. Also, this is New York fucking city. Said ignorant fat twat makes it sound as if getting rid of cyclists is the answer and you'll be able to safely walk down the street without looking both ways once their gone. I mean, it's not as if you suddenly wouldn't have to worry about anyone of the THOUSANDS OF FUCKED UP SHITTY DRIVERS SPEEDING AROUND TOWN IN TWO TON+ VEHICLES LIKE FUCKING RETARDS NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT 95% OF THE YELLOW CAB DRIVERS HAVE ZERO MOTHER FUCKING RESPECT FOR ANYTHING OUTSIDE OF THEIR GOD DAMNED TIP JAR..

Yeah, paint over the bike lanes and 'take back the streets' you grievous cunt. It's not as if cycling wasn't around for just a liiiiiittle bit longer that automobiles to begin with or anything. But yeah, once we're all gone you can comfortably catch a cab to go 20 blocks cause you can't walk your fat ass up or down subway stairs without wheezing and your kankles getting all swollen. I mean, perish the thought of walking!

Having said all that, I will say this to all the helmet-less wrong way riding fucktards out there:

STOP BEING TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL AND OR CHEAP AND JUST WEAR A FUCKING HELMET ALREADY!!! THEN, IF YOU CAN MUSTER THE STRENGTH TO NOT RIDE THE WRONG WAY OR IF YOU HAVE TO, JUST GO REAL SLOW TO AVOID SMASHING INTO SOMEONE ELSE, THEN THAT WOULD ALSO BE NICE YOU FUCKING JACKASSES!!!

That article makes me want to vomit, and I'd like to talk to the author in person. A few points:

1. Anyone who has spent 5 minutes biking around NYC realizes that 99% of the cyclists riding the wrong way and listening to music are the food delivery men, not regular riders. And the man who was killed was hit by a delivery man, further proving my point!

2. Ignoring helmet laws? The author clearly has no idea herself about NYC biking laws. If you're over 14 you're not required to wear a helmet. Is she trying to tell me that a bunch of middle and lower schoolers were zooming around the East Village???

3. Let's talk about her numbers. 37% ride through lights; that's a little over a third. That means that most don't. More than 10 ride the wrong way. If it were over 20% (and probably even 15) she probably would have pointed it out, so we can safely assume it's between 10 and 20%. That means out of every 10 people, only one or two will go the wrong way. THAT'S THE VAST MINORITY! And 66% wear helmets? That's pretty good! Most of those people (if not all of them) have the choice not to wear one, so if two out of every three people are wearing a helmet, it means MOST are safety conscious! It may just be me, but those numbers actually sound pretty good...

I just wanted to point out some pretty decently sized flaws in this article...

BTW, when was this article from? That pic looks like it's from the 90's...

Solid gold post. Ring the paper and give her a blast. Or write a letter to the editor, though they may not print "cunt", though it's true.

"give us back our streets"? Really? Not sidewalks? Her writing is as poor as her comprehension. I think this piece was a job submission for Fox News (as far as factual credibility). Proving you can restate any statistic to back your point, unless people are intelligent enough to sort through the bullshit. Luckily hers reads as 2+2=5. Thanks for the link though, get me all fired up....

i got into a little email war with that moron last time she came out with one of the bullshit anti-cycling articles. i guess between the two articles someone was actually killed by a bike, so she thinks she's made her point. i wonder how many people died due to cars in that same time period. the situation's about as lethal as small plastic toys. she probably just enjoys the attention she gets after the articles come out, be in positive or negative.
