Re: ** The RANT thread for Odds and Sods **

yup, you handled it much more gracefully than i did, as do most people.

Re: ** The RANT thread for Odds and Sods **

Re: ** The RANT thread for Odds and Sods **

Re: What's wrong with just a mirror?

Huh, a child's toy! I already have a revolving radar dish mounted on top of my helmet, with its display screen mounted on my handlebar stem. When funds allow, this cutting-edge early warning system will be upgraded to a 360-degree digital camera and a virtual reality headset, then I'll feel really ...

Re: More PC........Old Story Maybe, Could Be Contentious.

i don't think this is pc, i think it's just... well... there are less christians now. we could vote for the religion or non-religion to base this all on. we could even lie to all non-christians and say the "c" stood for "clocks". i'm an atheist so i'll be a good sport! EDIT i've ...

Re: I Have a Confession...

Re: I Have a Confession...

you know helmets aren't so controversial to a lot of riders ;) maybe you're just starting to see things as they are, that it definitely isn't bad to own one, maybe you'll wear it, maybe you wont, wearing one may or may not save your live, it may make you feel uncomfortable, a lot of things. to be ho...

Re: Trump AGAIN?????????

well it's one person, and a bunch of sycophants, willingly taking somebody's opinion out of context so they can get angry about it, and even though they know we know they know it's rubbish, mud sticks. and people are happy to build a democracy on that it seems. if i'm honest it's best we just forgot...

Re: ** The RANT thread for Odds and Sods **

and on religious extremism... this is in the rant thread, because it is my purely emotional response, rather than other threads that are for focused debate. god i'm funny. believe it or not, the reason i'm so against islamophobia, racism, xenophobia, whatever, isn't because i care about the victims....

Re: Inexplicable power of Twitter

not read that one myself yet but saw his ted talk about it. twitter scares me sometimes, you can get confirmation for just about any belief, which is why flat earth videos appear on youtube. whatever you can imagine, there's a cause with the same energy as the arab spring or cycling campaigning *smi...
