May 26th 2011 8:27PM I was in error, I didn't see the 2 or 3 frames where you could see the walk sign. It appears the motorist ran a red light. However, the cyclist shouldn't have been riding across a crosswalk and strayed well outside the crosswalk.
I take nothing back about the total disregard for the rules of the road by bicyclists in Chicago and I imagine other big cities.
May 26th 2011 10:49AM Did anybody watch this video? The light was red as the bicyclist was riding across the intersection. At least from what I see the driver has the right of way, so the bicyclist should be paying attention as they are technically jaywalking. The author of this post should ask his friends how often they follow the rules of the road as they relate to bicyclists.
In Chicago the majority of cyclists tend to follow no rules at all and end up putting themselves, drivers, and pedestrians in dangerous situations. They will run lights and stop signs when they feel it is safe, ride on sidewalks when convenient, cross lanes of traffic with little concern for the flow of traffic, this is just a fraction of the dangerous things that the bicyclists do here and I doubt Chicago is unique.
Nov 15th 2010 4:32PM It's the parents who do absolutely nothing to stop or pacify their child that are the problem. Beyond that I've sat next to adults who are just as annoying on a flight as a child.
But some passengers are idiotically oversensitive. One person actually screamed at my friends' two year old for singing "Wheels on the Bus" at a relatively low volume.
Jul 20th 2010 3:20PM be always heard it had more to do with the effect on cell towers with the quickly switching signals than any effect on the plane. I like the few hours without cell phone conversations. What I find annoying is the new apparent van on noise cancelling headphones during take off and landing
May 27th 2010 9:24AM Seems like a poor and expensive solution. There is a purpose to longer cables. Not everybody is using a laptop on a flat surface, which is about the only situation that makes sense. Just go on ebay and order some retractable USB cables, at their shortest point they are the same length as these. The specific three here will cost you all of $10 total and have the flexibility to be extended and set on a laptop keyboard when moving or even extended from a desktop sitting on the floor to a tabletop.
Feb 19th 2010 1:58PM I had a similar situation flying on Asiana airlines from Seoul to LA (for over 12 hours). The man smelled like he hadn't showered in weeks. I couldn't even manage to avoid it by sleeping, I kept waking up with nightmares about suffocating and realized I probably wasn't breathing.
Except in my case the flight attendants didn't care, refused to reseat me and my wife or the smelly passenger despite having multiple empty rows in the back of the plane. We found them later hanging out in those rows watching movies and gossiping loudly.
Good for Jazz airlines.

Jul 1st 2009 2:32PM As a daily walk/train commuter, it's not about the ability to carry multiple books, it's about being able to read the newest, large, hardbacks while not carrying about that much weight with me.
Apr 22nd 2009 12:37PM Nice, hopefully it can hold up my camera with its fairly heavy lens.
Mar 26th 2009 12:12PM Nothing interesting to say
