How can I intimidate cagers that ride to close to me or go left in front of me? What's some sort of visual repellent? Do I need to carry a big baseball bat on my back?

Bikes travel (for the most part) on the rightmost part of the street. The cyclist would be between the car and the crosswalk.

As a burger who doesn't know how to ride a bike, I'm getting the following lessons from this thread

If you're a cager

>don't bike unless it's a dedicated bike area or you plan on donating organs
>support separate bike paths to reduce cars, bikes, and homicidal confrontations from the roads

If you're a biker

>buy a horn, a baby carrier, and a Go-Pro
>use the baby carrier to hide a JA-9 in case you need to riddle a car with bullets and throw your gun down the storm drain
>use the Go-Pro to record sick footage of said ten mile an hour drive by shootings

How am I doing so far?

Great job, pat yourself on the back. While you're at it, give yourself another pat for not being institutionalised, which you should be, the whole lot of you who buy into this "we > them" mentality.

So an A319 is lost.
He finds an A380.
He thinks it is his mother, who happens to be an A380.
But is it?
>>
>>1133606
no, can't be
>>
>>1133606

No because whilst large, A380 is a lot younger than A319 and can't be its mommy.

Why is it called the plane train when it's just a train /n/? It can't fly. Help me understand.

They didn't expand it to service the brand new billion dollar international terminal when it was constructed.

>>1132787
Source? As far as I was aware, it started servicing the international terminal in 2012, which is the year the terminal opened.
>>
>>1133062
Holy smokes they did expand it. I didn't know. Initially the plan was that it would not be connected to the new terminal.

When they were building the new runway and were in the very initial stages of planning the new international terminal (2002-03), the airport's second- or third-in-charge gave a presentation about it in one of my college classes. He specifically mentioned that there were no plans to connect the Plane Train to the new terminal, and that the only way to get from the domestic terminals to the int'l terminal was to drive or take a shuttle bus. This was an aviation class so EVERYONE kind of grilled him about that decision, he didn't really have good answers for it, it sounded like he knew what a stupid idea it was not to connect them and but the decision wasn't his.

A few years after that, the airport cancelled the contract with the new terminal's architecture firm and hired another. I presume the idea to connect the Plane Train happened then.

I bought this well over 10 years ago and have held onto it. I wish I had bought the add-on that let you design your own layouts. It's pretty close to the real thing. It came with dozens of territories, this is a Conrail line in Ohio.

The company that made it stopped supporting/developing/selling it years ago, so it's vaporware as far as I can tell.

Most of the simulations that I've seen (haven't tried OP yet) were British (I don't care) or just plain sucked. Hopefully the one in the OP will be better.

Ultimate responsibility lies with KLM for making the rule governing maximum pilot duties.

If the Captain was not in a rush to take off he wouldn't have made the mistake. And he was in a rush to take off because KLM made the rule.

Let's take a tour through the magical world of Indian bicycle brands.

Here we have the lovely Hercules DYNAMITE ZX

>Dynamite ZX ergonomically designed and engineered for today’s boys. It is loaded with the most latest features like Turbodrive, masculine frame, imported suspension, flying mudguards, V-brake, Alloy brake lever, Integrated carrier and strong rear diamond to provide speed and riding comfort.

This incident was like 10 years ago.
But I completely agree. Forward visibility is a huge problem with many taildraggers, and a lot of taildragger pilots I know seem to have this dismissive macho attitude about it. I know a pilot who has had two propstrikes directly attributable to this issue and is STILL dismissive when I suggest he put a taxi/landing camera on the belly as insurance.
