I found this article and, sure enough, found the usual bunch of anti-bicycle riding, pro-car trolls, making the usual threats to crush riders under their wheels etc etc. You worthless bunch of fucking cunts. Bicycle riding as utilitarian private transport is your fucking saviour you fuckwits. You just don't realise it yet. Get the fuck off my road.

The use of machinery and intensive nutrients/pesticides has driven food prices to such low levels that good, wholesome corn fed, SUV drivin', soda guzzlin', beef chompin' Americans (and Canadians, and Europeans, and Australians) have been the fattest they've ever been.

I find it really funny when some fatty boomsticks whinges about the high price of wholesome, un-processed food, fruit and vegetables, as if they're gonna eat that stuff anyway. Too easy to visit TrippelFatSlurp on the corner and get a Double Guzzle Combo for $10 than to do a weekly food shop for $50.

To the dumbos who are down-modding comments on the atrocious use of the word "hear" instead of "here" in the summary, I offer you this piece from Mark Twain:


For example, in Year 1 that useless letter "c" would be dropped to be replased either by "k" or "s", and likewise "x" would no longer be part of the alphabet.

The only kase in which "c" would be retained would be the "ch" formation, which will be dealt with later.

Year 2 might reform "w" spelling, so that "which" and "one" would take the same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish "y" replasing it with "i" and iear 4 might fiks the "g/j" anomali wonse and for all.

Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear with iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and iears 6-12 or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants.

Bai iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi posibl tu meik ius ov thi ridandant letez "c", "y" and "x" -- bai now jast a memori in the maindz ov ould doderez -- tu riplais "ch", "sh", and "th" rispektivli.

I was wondering when that old chestnut would pop-up. Not everyone has the mindset to be a programmer, let alone the time. You're inviting a lot of half assed code to be rejected from the base line if you expect people to just "learn c or c++" then start contributing to a project that probably at least requires knowledge at CS level. This would create an extra burden on any project.

Believe it or not, some people (actually, most people) just want to buy their device.

The helmet registers some simple metrics of brain activity and overlays the information on a map, letting wearers see how they're responding to their environments. According to the Kickstarter campaign, the designers developed the MindRider helmet with bicyclists and skateboarders in mind, but they've also received inquiries from skiers, paragliders, and climbers."
