No, it's not Miami Beach. We are officially among the "10 MOST BIKE
FRIENDLY CITIES" in America, according to the glossy magazine "Miami
Beach." Lots of people are riding all over the place, mostly on
sidewalks, while some really brave the streets. They are brave indeed,
but I'm waiting for the most anticipated bike path to connect the
beaches. Maybe it'll never happen after all the money that goes down
the black hole of corruption, in which case...

I will destroy my bicycles in the bonfire of lost dreams. "Coming
soon."

NOTE: This city is home to a bike sharing program similar to London's
and Paris'. Did I say I'm walking on flip flops? Yes, they are
actually liberating compared to regular shoes. Even sneakers seem like
a cage. No cage for the monkey.

Anyway, what's the most dangerous city to bike in America?

Detroit, of course.

It's apparently the most dangerous city in the USA, hands down, and I
can conceive of no reason why those on bicycles would be immune from the
dangers faced by people there.

As I understand it, Detroit currently beats Washington in that regard.
But if it's Washington and not Detroit, fair enough.

Just remember that murder is simply a successful deliberate killing. The
would-be killer might be less than totally successful, but you'd still
rather it hadn't happened.

You know, when I opened that link this is the thought that flashed in
my face:

“The adjective is the banana peel of the parts of speech.”

It must be a sign of something, surely. Maybe I should finally eat the
banana that's going rotten in my kitchen.

Having said that, those cities really suck.

You know, I just thought of something:

Detroit is the crappiest city in America because is the home of the
automobile industry.

A bicycle friendly city would be green and clean. It would have less
crime and road rage because people would come out.

Wait, do people come out first or crime and road rage are reduced
first? I see people here slowly coming out on the road but last time I
tried it I had a BMW blasting the horn on my back.

Milton Keynes is "bicycle friendly". Except nobody will use the Redways
(bicycle routes) because of the number of people who have been mugged
and/or raped on them.

I thought a man on a bike was something serious --good for his health,
the community and the environment-- but I may be wrong.

Someone in a little Toyota or big SUV is something very serious for
the economy. Mostly the latter.

Worry not. The first step of the Revolutionary Committee in Exile is
to assign undercover police on bikes. I was reading around (doing my
homework) and it seems that those bushes are indeed good camouflage
for predators.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milton_Keynes_redway_system

And then it's this most frustrating issue that I also face here:

"As all Redways are shared use with no cycle/pedestrian lane marking
or separation, the need for frequent braking to pass pedestrians,
other cyclists, children, dogs etc. safely is another cause of
frustration."

I don't use mine either. How about 1 mile long, blinding light at
night? People, dogs all over the place?

Nah, it ain't for me. I'm walking parallel to it on sidewalk and see
normal people. Mind you, I'm missing a view over the beach, but when
you see all the money going to waste in that facility, you must
realize we are better off without it.

Hey, it's a place for the beautiful people and their beautiful dogs.
They don't care. They leave the shit behind sometimes. Nobody controls
that. There's a "security guard" but he keeps playing hide-and-seek,
never to be found in a real emergency. And we have plenty of bad guys
hanging around.

Wait, do people come out first or crime and road rage are reduced
first? I see people here slowly coming out on the road but last time I
tried it I had a BMW blasting the horn on my back.
Perhaps you should get your stupid toy off the roads, then?
Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain.
Well, maybe Satan is stupid instead of evil. I heard "Never attribute
to evil what you can attribute to stupidity."
But there's no doubt in my mind what kind of vehicle they would
choose. God would choose the bicycle. And Satan a black SUV.
We have a lot of those in England, they can't all be his.

That's a nice way to describe life in America. You often wonder

Last summer I landed 100 miles from NYC, in a little town called
Woodbourne and I thought of Heaven and Hell. Absolutely beautiful but
absolutely nothing to do. No trails to hike, something the Europeans

I think the American sprawl shows the power of the Real Estate
Industry and the Automobile Industry while the engineers just a lend a
hand in the execution. They have done a poor job at creating liveable
communities. The supreme monument to stupidity (or evil, whatever your
take) is to create a bicycle infrastructure that exposes the innocent
cyclist to greater danger.

And, of course, they can claim they are creating space for bikes.

Not only that, it's also the stupidity of the car. I ain't handicap,

We'll be enjoying life once again. Electric bikes are all the rage
too. We just need space.
You realize that plug-in electric cars are run on coal, right?
But they could run on wind, solar or nuclear power as well, right?
Wind and solar is 2% and Nuclear which has been stopped dead in it's
tracks for more than 30 years is only 20% and no increase in sight.....
So the answer is NO. they can't run on any of those because they are
already insufficient to run the grid without electric cars.
There would have to be an increase in generating capacity and thus far
it isn't near enough.
since it will consume electric energy to plug cars in, you
ECO-Socialists might want to ban electric cars until after you have the
capacity to charge them.

Again you miss your opportunity to look smart. An ELECTRIC BICYCLE
uses a trickle of electricity for what it does. It takes you around
and still allows you to do some pedaling (exercise). Are you trying to
tell me that a car is the best option to go around in my community?

The car killed the community.

"His Highness the Wise TibetanMonkey,
For all the American sprawl, only 7% of the land in the US is developed
(according to the Dept. of the Interior).
There are vast areas of land where you can go, where you needn't
complain about a "real estate industry" or an "automobile industry" or
some nebulous "they" who've "done a poor job" at making you happy and
comfortable in the manner you seem to expect.
I thought the last Americans to be "off the grid" were the Indians and
they were placed in reservations, so now they are fat and dumb as
well.
Haven't ever been to a Reservation, have you?
Why, are they still riding horses through the prairies?
I thought they drove a car like the rest of us. No need to hunt
anymore. Same obesity rates, maybe worse.
Infant mortality on reservations is about 5 times what it is for the
rest of the US. At some reservations the life expectancy is 47 for males
and 52 for females. Unemployment is as high as 85%. About half of the
populations on reservations live below the federal poverty level. Many
families have no electricity (for your electric bike), no telephones,
running water or even sewage systems. At Pine Ridge Reservation, 50% of
the population has diabetes. Alcoholism and drug abuse are rampant,
malnutrition widespread, depression and suicide rates are alarmingly
high.
So, obviously, no; you've never been to a Reservation.
--
Neolibertarian
"Global Warming: It ain't the heat, it's the stupidity."
Why, do I need to be to a reservation to confirm what I know?

It proves my point that you can't remove man's capacity to ROAM FREE
and expect him to be happy. The Indians are unhappy.

A horse is not practical anymore but a bicycle is --except for hills
and bad weather. In NYC the situation is such that walking remains a
viable option, perhaps more so than biking. And their public
transportation is way better than in the rest of the country, where
obesity rates and depression seems to be the norm.

Incidentally they are starting a bike sharing program in that city so
the jury is out. Anyway the solution is MULTIMODAL TRANSPORTATION,
instead of car monopoly. THE REVOLUTION IS ABOUT SOLUTIONS.

The TABLET may be the most important first step toward saving big
money and cleaning up the jungle. As the Nook allows us to borrow
books from the library without being exposed to the odors the homeless
and old books give out, I can see the library as a HOTPOT & E-BOOK
facility. The bathrooms, now a place for the homeless to wash
themselves, may finally close as the libraries themselves. Hey, many
of our parks have already closed their restrooms partially or totally
to avoid the homeless, so you must go behind the bushes yourself.
Maybe the two, libraries and parks, should close for good.

And this in turn can save big money to Obama's precarious budget.
Guess what, I'm enrolling in e-book borrowing, and this in turn may
avoid diseases often found in old books...

Oh common, all churches are in honor of our gods. They are everywhere.
We worship them and ignore reality. As you say, we need the gods. I
said plural, no god is better than other, though we are led to believe
so.
You want a lion's body with a human head? Yes, we specialize in that.
We got 3 million slaves on standby. Maybe 300 millions. Whatever you
want. You want a god with wings or such as a millipede? You know, I
think god is a worm, not a roach. It would be hard to sell.
You're a slave, regardless.
Slave to the pursuit of happiness? Well, in a way, yes. But this is
sort of a mental challenge as well. I'm happy to be black sheep. Maybe
we can make life better for those slaves who labor in the big pyramids
of our time. I mean slaves who are not doing something practical such
as bike facilities or fast trains. Slaves in China are putting
together phones and tablets and that's highly appreciated, so we can
have them cheap.

we, me andbeing, were making you look good monkey. we were
translating for you into two languages that you forgot monkey... are
you sure you are a monkey? because you are a mere "then" away from

The real make believe world? I'd be afraid of that.

I thought of TV more than Usenet. You may dig up the truth here and
tell camouflage from reality. We are the hunters here.

i know. will has too much of a role... to play.
Well, the make believe world is the one portrayed by the Media and
Hollywood.

The real world is the one you face on bike or foot.

I guess that's too deep. Well, I'm sure you know what I mean. People
also try to imagine a make believe Heaven, just to feel good. Of
course, the job of the philosopher is to expose the real world.

He must rely on his binoculars sometimes to see what's going on...

Did you know there are over three times more trees in the US than there
were in 1918?
Did you know that by 1930---loonytarianism was a failed, discredited,
and laughable 'ism"?
According to the latest polls in this area, there are more trees
standing now that in the aftermath of the last hurricane --even though
it only was a category 3. Amazing, simply amazing.

It ain't a pretty picture for the rest of the world though:

Deforestation Facts and Figures - A Global Perspective

The statistical data on deforestation reveal that seven countries of
the world amount to around 60 percent of the total deforestation on
the planet. These seven countries include Brazil in Latin America,
Canada and the United States in North America, Indonesia and China in
Asia, Russia in Europe and the Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa.
The data compiled by the World Resources Institute reveals that the
planet has already lost 80 percent of its forest cover to
deforestation, and going by the alarming rate at which the trees are
being cut, it won't take much time for that figure to reach the 100
percent mark.

Philosophers and prophets don't work. They participate in the guidance
of the world in a full time manner. Pay is nil but the reward is
great.

Think of Socrates. He had his dosis of cicuta and woke up in the other
world. The Muses received him and he was entertained forever. Nothing
can be more rewarding.
You know, I got bad news for you. Canada is grouped together with
Congo in this sad statistics. At this rate you may have to adapt a
polar bear soon. Where are they going to hide? Will they join
civilization?
tut... tut... Jewboy... economy is the new score board and the anna-
rachael is still floating... still fighting... still kicking ass...
the US is getting raped by the world bitch... now, shut the fuck up
before i whip your entertainment economy... ballywood... because it is
due to little tiny rat shit like you, a little tiny monkey fly... that
i decide to make big devastating, destructive and irreversible
changes...
you see monkey... where do you think you would find me... talking to
bam bam and harper? to get from them a picture of what i can do to
help? but in the end, if the people themselves are bought, sold and
fixed on a determined outcome (even if you do not know what it means
thus i only serve as an a posteriori feature... too late)... then i
really see no reason in stopping your world one moment longer...
i mean look at how pathetic a pig you really are Jew... your war is
about taking back a throne you never had... hahaha... and here you are
talking shit words like revolution... war of the classes... bikes vs.
SUVs... hahaha... and you think if it happens, it will be your
crown... your head... hahaha...
You fail to understand that disease has spread beyond the Jews. Now we
are all infected! Greed is the way to go in the future.

Is it a bipartisan commission or another Republican trick to slow down
the Democrats? At times it sounds like God and Satan with their

Well, we need consensus to resolve anything, which means we won't
resolve anything. The issues are passed down to future generations.

you are crazy. i mean it dude, out of control insane. spaceman stuff.
do yourself a favor before your delusion comes crashing in. get some
help. get some meds. get yourself checked in.
No philosopher or musician is sane. Take for example this "madman"...



Do you think we should celebrate the Revolution with that? Is it
becoming too worn out? We had our hopes high when the Berlin Wall
fell, and see what happens. I think it's gotten worse, right? It's
like communism was a balance to the worse excesses of capitalism. Now
we have walls (gated communities) everywhere.

Well, we better change the rhythm with the Banana Revolution...

how did he die again? too much love? so now you are socrates huh? tell

Look for my new title, "most humble philosopher," and you'll see the

of course we can not control that. googling. this is not real.
consider that if you ever get as unlucky as you are to get into a face
to face when all your marbles are the anti for a gmae that is not
random. no chance.
Google or no Google, that's the question. Yes, I Google. Who doesn't?
At least I get it right every time, that's the bottom line.

yes. thank you. disease. plague. infection. or the anti-bodies. the
cure for an illness on the scale of a greater living body getting rid
of a virus that has become feverish. of course it might feel more like
taking a shit. you will never know.
You must have been close to an infected person. Now you believe you
need a loan and lawyer to live. No, it ain't necessary. Remember the
philosopher needs only flip flops even as the streets are dangerous to
bikes. Beware of the Jewish lawyer.

lol. communism has good points. taxation is a facit of communism. you
whine about taxes. communism is about exploiting the poor. seems to me
it is working just fine. all that foreign work. out sourcing and in
sourcing workers because you americans are lazy. if you recall, was it
not the republicans that made those blunders? the republicans, as they
appear today, represent the american union yes? something fishy
monkey. i think there is a mole.
It's been a sleight of hand. That's something every magician can do.
Communism is not really dead. Now it lives in capitalism. The two
systems will become one eventually and the democratic game will be
exposed. The system with the most control and the cheapest labor wins.
Perhaps Venezuela is the way to go. Of course, only the Banana
Revolution can deliver.

No, it's not Miami Beach. We are officially among the "10 MOST BIKE
FRIENDLY CITIES" in America, according to the glossy magazine "Miami
Beach." Lots of people are riding all over the place, mostly on
sidewalks, while some really brave the streets. They are brave indeed,
but I'm waiting for the most anticipated bike path to connect the
beaches. Maybe it'll never happen after all the money that goes down
the black hole of corruption, in which case...
I will destroy my bicycles in the bonfire of lost dreams. "Coming
soon."
NOTE: This city is home to a bike sharing program similar to London's
and Paris'. Did I say I'm walking on flip flops? Yes, they are
actually liberating compared to regular shoes. Even sneakers seem like
a cage. No cage for the monkey.
Anyway, what's the most dangerous city to bike in America?
Detroit, of course.
It's apparently the most dangerous city in the USA, hands down, and I
can conceive of no reason why those on bicycles would be immune from the
dangers faced by people there.
<http://www.forbes.com/pictures/mlj45jggj/1-detroit/>
Detroit is the crappiest city in America because is the home of the
automobile industry.
That is partly correct.

The other - and equally necessary - part is that other countries'
"automobiles" (cars) are so in demand in the USA that Detroit has lost
at least some of its raison d'etre.

A bicycle friendly city would be green and clean. It would have less
crime and road rage because people would come out.
Wait, do people come out first or crime and road rage are reduced
first? I see people here slowly coming out on the road but last time I
tried it I had a BMW blasting the horn on my back.
Come out as what?

Well our sidewalks are rather narrow, not exactly empty like in most
sprawls, so you must fight for space with pedestrians as well. And the
sidewalks are often blocked by delivery vehicles while the few bike
lanes that you find are also blocked. Oh, and people walking dogs on
long leashes are also common among our affluent neighbors.

You feel like a mouse surrounded by rats.
