Just got back from a leisurely 15mile ride to the mall. On the way back, I was minding my own business in the right lane of a four-lane road where there was very little traffic out. This was in a residential area and not any kind of highway, the speed limit was only 25. All of a sudden I hear some honking from behind, and an SUV swerves around me just feet from my rear tire with some obese woman in the passenger seat shrieking at the top of her lungs. They stopped at the stoplight about 10 feet ahead, and I stopped next to her.

>"Are you talking to me?"
>PAY ATTENTION YOU LITTLE KID, YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD
>"I know I'm in the middle of the road, I have the legal right to ride here. You're the one who has to pay attention"
>I CAN'T WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO HIT YOU SO YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THE DAMAGES
>"I wish you had hit me so you could explain that to the police"
>YOU'RE NOT EVEN ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD, YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE OVER THERE (pointing to the left side of the street, i.e. riding against traffic) SO CARS CAN SEE YOU
>"That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard"
>YOU'RE A LITTLE KID, YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING

That's a bit paraphrased, but it's not exaggerated. And yes, she really did call me a "little kid" multiple times, even though I'm 23 and have a beard. What causes people in cars to be so stupid? Anyone else care to share a road rage story?

People do this to other cars all the time too, I'll be driving with the flow of traffic and some asshole will go +20 mph above speed limit to pass and turns within 5 seconds of passing me.
Don't understand the psychology behind it.

First time using PhotoShop

is there even a point in this
A G G R E S I V E G E O M E T R Y? I mean this page is for buying and selling bikes in NYC so most of these bikes are meant for urban commuting with a small percentage of messengers. Would this even be practical or do these fucks just want to look cool hunching over at a negative angle while navigating traffic?

Drag is a function of the square of the object's velocity relative to the medium.
It means that when you go faster, the air pushes back harder.
>>
Most messengers I have seen have pretty reasonable riding position. Some quite upright.

The geometry comes from competitive track bikes, where speed/aero is important. A few spilled out and surely some people like the way they look.

As someone else said, messengers probably choose fixed/ss for ease of maintenance. It's not a high paying job. Gears are really nice, but ss just works. Flexible as far as chain usage and crank type and hub types. Put it together and ride till the chain stretches out without adjusting a thing-

After a long summer of island hopping I have come to the conclusion that modern ships are complete and utter shit. I am reffering to the interior design,decor and spaces, not any mechanical/scientific criteria. Most 20th century ships were much more classy inside with tasteful interiors and beautiful external designs. It seems that modern ship designers have no interest in designing tasteful ships

What is the reasoning behind this conspiracy?

What would one have to gain by "switching ships"?
>>
>>1101438
>>1101462
Conspiracy cucks argue it was for the insurance money and that the insurance sum for the Titanic was raised shortly before the accident.
It wasn't.
They say White Star Line was in financial troubles.
They weren't.
They further say the Olympic was heavily damaged and switched because it was a write-off anyway.
She was damaged but not critically.

These conspiracy cucks throw around the same pics as "proof" (number and shape of windows for example). If you'd take some time actually reading a reliable source you'd find that there is little to no evidence that would warrant such an outlandish claim that the ships were siwtched "over a weekend".

Go here to educate yourself or fuck off and die:

>why have them intersect with stop lights halting traffic?
Cost. At grade intersections are much cheaper. If you want to check out a freeway with a huge variety of interchanges look at highway 400 in Ontario on Google maps. Since most of the highway north of thw city of Barrie just cuts through forest, the interchanges are designed only to the standard that traffic in the rural areas required. Like look at this;

On the left theres a parclo interchange where you exit the highway to traffic lights, but you enter from an arterial road lane.

On the right it's a rural interchange where you exit the highway to a stop sign, and you enter kind of on a right in right out interchange.

It's just done for traffic need and cost
>>
>>1101469
This happened to me the other day and I ended up on a North South highway when i was heading East. For connecting freeway to freeway they just need to make longer ramps to give people more space to move over i guess. But they do allow for maintaining speeds of 100kmh whereas other forms of interchange require you to reduce speed

heres a dumb example, yes this isnt of a cloverleaf but this situation happened to me once. I was merging on while a semi was trying to merge off. I was already going 30mph or so mergeing on and so was he, the only solution was to either overtake him (dangerous) or step on the brakes

Yeah that's super fucking dangerous. The exit should be before the entrance ramp like here

I just got a slightly similar job with a newspaper, and I'm delivering papers to businesses in the area, as well as doing subscription and adspace sales to and fro on the bike. The newspaper even went on to buy me a trailer, sandwiches each week, and fill the office fridge with Gatorade. Feels pretty neat.
I'm only slightly worried about the snow and rain, but slipping and sliding almost sounds better than 100+ degree heat at this point.
>>
>>1100160
You can get some decently grippy tires for snow and rain. If it gets seriously icy, like norway icy, then you should get some proper studded tires.
>>
>>1100160
Just get studded tires.. I run Hakkapeliitta A10, not too slow rolling even if there is no snow. I guess the 30mm Marathon Winter would be an alternative to these.

No worries about ice and snow, just don't try to lean much.

Pilot error, but not necessarily the pilots' fault. I'd argue the fatigue caused by crew scheduling was to blame; it was a well-known problem at FlyDubai and some of the pilots saw it coming.
