It seems incredible from today's perspective that two people, motivated mainly by enthusiasm, should develop both an operating system and a programming language but that's exactly what Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thomson achieved.
Unix and the Unix way of doing things eventually transmuted into Linux and is now the server OS that powers industry and the Internet.
C on the other hand has been the basis for all of the C-like languages we all know and use every day — Java, C# and of course C++. Whenever you write a three-parameter for loop, for(init;test;inc), you owe a debt to C and should think of the fun that Dennis Ritchie had inventing it and making it all work."

OP is dead on the money
Where I live roads are exclusively paid for by car registration and fuel tax, so bike riders are indeed freeloading.
Got proof of that? I find it very hard to believe that in any country roads (which are damn expensive to build and maintain) are paid for by rego (which is not much at all), instead of general taxes paid by everyone.

Not sure what country you're from, but here in Australia roads are paid for by Federal and State taxes. Every tax payer pays for roads, not just car drivers.
Rego, here at least, pays for the cleanup of car accidents.
And I'm a cyclist who has insurance, provided for by the State Bicycling Club.
