I’ve been cycling for about 6 months now and generally haven’t had many negative encounters with cars. Yesterday I was on a long ride when I heard a loud lifted pickup truck approaching from behind, so I moved over as far as possible so he could go by (there was no bike lane but also visibly no cars in the opposite direction for a while).
The truck slowed down when passing me, which at first I respected him for taking it easy around a cyclist. Then he stayed in front of me going slowly for a few seconds, before flooring it and creating a huge cloud of black smoke right in front of me. I had no idea why this guy had the need to take this action. There was really nothing I could do other than ride right through it. I don’t understand what some people’s problems are with cyclists, it’s quite frustrating. I would have maybe understood if I cut him off or something, but I did absolutely nothing to spark his negative action. Thanks for coming to my vent, I look forward to more asshat experiences like this :)
Example: “I called him out on his behavior so he started scrote yapping in my general direction.”
Any other new terms, Queens? Or further explanation of this one?
Edit: capitalizing Queens, and adding example.
Assuming someone were to attempt to the destroy the death star without knowing about the exhaust port / plans is there a strategy they could use to destroy it? Specifically talking about the first death star.
This is simply an audible attention seeking activity to draw unessary attention to ones self and subject others to the noise.
If you want to mention motorcycle safety you also have to acknowledge that not all motorcyclists wear helmets or drive safely as well.
