I have some kind of upper respiratory bug that is making my nose run and gooping up my eyes, and it is aggravating me no end. I mean an unending nasal drip just getting in my moustache means I have to wash my face several times a day (yuck!). The tenant and I are going to a social gathering tonight, I’m mostly going to make the tenant feel more secure because she was sexually assaulted at another gathering of a different group. I think some people feel I’m somewhat physically imposing in spite of not being very tall (5’8″). I’m almost that big around (48″ chest) and have wide shoulders and very narrow hips. I look like I have been hitting the weights for years, when in reality it is pure skeleton. I don’t have lats, I have ribs and likewise I don’t have huge pecs I have a depressed sternum that makes my ribs bulge out. I shouldn’t complain because it was mostly my skeleton that allowed me to survive getting hit 3 times by pickup trucks. I mean I have what has been described as “concrete bones” by an expert on the subject (the tech running the bone-scan thingy at the doctor) and I’m sure that had something to do with not getting my head bashed in when the football player I dissed for copying the wrong answers off my science test hit me with the baseball bat…
Up first a possible reason why nobody posted anything in social media about the Bono bike wreck. Bono Likes to Ride His Bike While Dressed as a Hasidic Jew, Apparently You would think that someone would have taken a picture of a wreck that bad, but apparently not. more The Edge Says Bono ‘Basically Can’t Move’ for Next Few Months After Bike Accident
A UK article reminds us to not hit the pedestrians! Woman taken to hospital after being hit by a cyclist in Hellesdon This demonstrates why I posted yesterday that sidewalks are not bicycle infrastructure! Unless cyclists basically just allow all the advantages of riding a bicycle to be neutralized it’s basically impossible to share infrastructure with pedestrians safely for any great lengths of distance, I mean bicycles may be slower than cars or trucks but we are still faster than pedestrians. The three modes need separate infrastructure for everybody to be safe and efficient.
A bit of Lifestyle! from the most deadliest state in the US to walk or ride a bicycle. A ride to remember: Bob Votruba’s life, and his bus, committed to ‘a million acts of kindness’
A possible e-assist bike share project in FL. E-Rides USA Launches Electric Bike Share Company in Sarasota, Florida The bike share requires using a 4 digit code that unlocks a bike. I hope where they keep the bikes also automatically charges them back up…
And again I have run out of links I can use. See you tomorrow.
