4/3     Need some advice from tom or tom-clones.  I'm actually using my
        mountain bike in SF now and I bought some panniers but the metal
        loops that hook onto the back of the bike rack thing are so tiny as
        soon as I hit a pothole they fall off the bike.  What's a good one to
        get that has long loops so they won't fall off the bike? I don't know
        why this is so hard, in Europe the loops are about 2-3 inches long

3/12    I have really good medical insurance from my company. Is it
        still necessary to carry Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist,
        (state minimum $15K)? In addition, everyone in my family
        is insuranced, is there a reason to get the and Medical
        Payments which only covers $500-$2000/passenger?
        \_ I don't bother with medical. It only makes things worse, IMO,

11/27   So how do you keep the stupid RIDE BIKE people off of the trails? Is
        it legal for them to ride on hiking trails? I've almost been killed
        a few times now by bikers barreling down quiet mountain trails that
        they thought they owned. I hate them.
        \_ So you support bike-only trails?  Great!  -tom
           \_ I do. Why not? What's happening now doesn't work. I don't

9/28    Remember, Thugs on Wheels today!  Be sure to be armed if you're driving
        in SF.
        \_ Ride bike!
        \_ if you are driving, you already are armed with a perfectly effective
           \_ So if it is acceptable for a bike rider to smash my windows and

5/23    "SAN FRANCISCO - Calling a cab with an environmental conscience" (
        41.4mpg for Prius cab vs. 12mpg for Crown Victoria cab.
        \_ How much trunk space?
           \_ I looked at a Prius in a parking lot, and it looks like it
              can't even fit one big suitcase.  But then most cab passengers

        What really happened in the SUV driver vs. Critical Mass incident.
           "... witnesses told her that Ferrando "recklessly accelerated" into
            a crowd and hit the bicyclist so hard the bike was lodged under
            her vehicle."

4/4     Stated purpose of the Critical Mass: To increase bicycle awareness
        and to convince people that biking is good.
        Actual effect of the Critical Mass: To piss off drivers and people
        who are dependent on cars and hope they move away.
        Kudos to everyone involved last week. Let's hope keep up the
        pressure and hope more drivers move out.                -biker

        mp3 of interview with the woman in the minivan in the critical mass
        incident (with Armstrong & Getty).  Interview starts at 12 minutes in.
        Sounds like people in Critical Mass caused the problem.  I find her
        believable. -emarkp

8/12    Bored, watching TV, and came across this synopsis nugget
        for a Three's Company episode:
        "[Janet's boss] Tina blackmails Jack into being at her
         beck and call; otherwise she'll fire Janet."
        The 70s were a weird time.
         \_ there is a _Friends_ episode that could be described zactly the same

1/28    the baby borg episode of star trek:voyager is so sad!
        \_ Jeri Ryan's firm rear end gave us Obama.  God bless her.
           \_ What about the front?
           \_ How was this supposed to have come about?
           \_ I thought I rehashed this for the motd.  Jeri Ryan used to be
              married to an Illinois senator.  They had a messy divorce.

12/15   Anyone have opinions on media streamers that connect to your tv and
        let you play all those bittorrented movies?  I'm getting sick of
        my xbox refusing to play every other video.
        \_ My current solution is an old pc with a cheap video card, using
           Synergy on my laptop.  This plus every episode of MST3K has provided
           much entertainment.

triplemultiplex Re: *1312: The F Word* Post-Air Discussion Thought one of the biker guys had an alien on his shirt, but I think it's just a skull. Fairly good joke in the library there with the bikers get shushed for their rabbling. nwt000 Re: *1312: The F Word* Post-Air Discussion Pro: Big Gay Al and Mr Slave returned. Con: Not enough of the boys or any of the 4th graders or South Park residents, for that matter. nwt000 Re: *1312: The F Word* Post-Air Discussion is it just me or were those assassin's creed 2 commercials extremely disturbing The cowboy guy looked like Trey as Alfred Packer on the cover of Cannibal: the Musical. triplemultiplex Re: *1312: The F Word* Post-Air Discussion Who else would be in charge of the dictionary? I enjoyed the episode but it was a little light on laughs. I think the alien I saw on the biker's shirt but then decided was a skull might be an alien after all. Diabeteth Re: *1312: The F Word* Post-Air Discussion That was great! Okay, my opinion of it will probably go down by tomorrow when the new-episode high has worn off, but as of right now I think it's one of the best of the fall run so far. A little too much time with the bikers and a little short on minimum ideal amount of time with the boys, but other than that I loved it. hellrazerhd Re: *1312: The F Word* Post-Air Discussion An mok episode but I'm a biker and I think you may have doomed a few people with this one. I mean not all of us try to piss people off or any of that, we hate the ones that do, it's just that your gunna have kids calling bikers fags now and they are probably gunna get a foot or two up their asses. As a matter a fact I'm not sorry, it's actually a reason to get back at those jack-asses who put crap in my exhaust pipes. Btw, how could you have forgoten the Hilary Duff commercials? Who know with the 2 chicks talking and they say gay and she says not to say it because it's a offensive and all that? Diabeteth Re: *1312: The F Word* Post-Air Discussion How is it that I hate puns unless they come from South Park? Once again, South Park has come up with a pun capable of making me laugh. Kitsunebaby Re: *1312: The F Word* Post-Air Discussion I'm so glad south park did this. I've never understood why people get so upset about the negative use of a word that that originally had nothing to do with them. It's stupid when people choose to be victims and feel offended at something that wasn't directed towards them at all.
