I definitely was not expecting that. :D
guy knows how to take a fall
Good crashes bike-man!
This wouldn't even be an issue if he were able to carry a gun.
Okay, that was very entertaining.
I find self righteous cyclists completely obnoxious but the guy does make a point.
Its pretty low for the city to try to look for extra revenue by ticketing cyclists when they have to deal with that kind of shit.
Oh, and OH MY FUCKING GOD! HE'S FILMING THE POLICE OFFICER, HE MAY HAVE A GUN, OH SHIT HE'S GOING TO MURDER HIM, HE'S A SOVEREIGN! A FILTHY FUCKING SOVERE...
oh, He's crashing into things.
Those assholes need to stay off the road or get a vehicle that can actually go faster.
I'll enjoy it when it actually reaches 8$.
"I'll enjoy it when it actually reaches 8$."
I think this is actually the most moronic thing you have ever said. This blows my mind.

You know that if that happens, food prices will skyrocket too, right? I mean, you do realize that...right?
On balance, I'll benefit from gas: long energy, short consumer discretionaries & airlines, I have a bike, and I'm not immune to schadenfreude.
Chris Skrebowski is the expert on the timing, and he sees a shortfall in 2012, a brief respite, and the terminal decline beginning in earnest in 2014. Enjoy the endless depression.
Bumping this today (9/24/2012) for the MINIMUM gas projection. (Followed by projection that nobody who rides bikes in the city goes without serious injury)
Still sitting around .94.
This popped up on the sidebar and the OMG GAS PRICES commentary made me giggle a bit. Just paid .57 for mid grade today (6-8-2015)
Pratfalling for justice.

I normally hate douches that don't ride in the bike lane, but he hurt himself for my amusement so I forgive him.
What a douche. And what sort of moron doesn't know that it's legal to ride a bike on city streets?
If I come across a douche cyclist, I just remember they are being douches for a good reason.
That's a good perspective. I'll try using it myself.
Nearly every one I know who regularly bikes in the city has had at least one serious injury and one good friend is dead. I'm OK with them being douches. Hell, I'm OK with them u-locking a rear view mirror from time to time. I still think Critical Mass is counterproductive, though.
The problem is that (and of course this doesn't apply to every individual biker), a lot of times, they treat pedestrians just as poorly as drivers generally treat them. I've nearly been run over by at least two dozen bikers while crossing... in crosswalks, as nerdy as that is. And it's not like they actually KNOW me and have a reason to want to hurt me.
Well-made point, and the ending: perfect.
His point is stupid. Is he saying car lanes are never blocked? That drivers should just ram anything in their path? He's a giant baby.
Slowing down or stopping is an anathema to fixed gear riders.
Bike lanes are a joke.
In Toronto, like I'm sure a lot of cities, there are bike lanes that pass to the left of rows of parallel parked cars. Who thought that was a great idea?
Away we go!

This made me want to hug this man, and then Enjoy for submitting it.
Although he was in the wrong, the cop was fairly nice about enforcing what he believed to be right. Cops aren't lawyers and he didn't seem to be acting out of malice and to be fair the cycalist COULD probably have gotten off his bike and walked it on the pavement around such obstacles. Contest it in court, point out that it's not illegal and you'll probably get your back.
Bike lanes are a joke and are treated as such. Your are probably safer skateboarding down the pavement than you are in a bike lane, especially one you are not allowed to leave.
