I saw one of those in San Diego at the beach last weekend. They're just as ugly in person.

I came into a corner too fast TODAY. Its a corner I know, I've been over it enough times. Yeah, I messed up. I got it. Stuff happens though. Live and learn, right?

On interweb? Live and learn?

Not as easily as it eats self important assholes on carbon fiber road bikes who insist on riding out into 4 lanes of traffic because they can't be bothered to stop at a stop sign.

I could have slammed on my brakes and gotten run into for my trouble.
Or just kept cruising like everyone else does when assholes ride out in front of them.

Do enough stupid shit and Darwin usually catches up

I used to ride about 4K miles a year on a bicycle, I never once felt the need to ride out into traffic.

A more english syntax appropriate ordering would be:

Habere currus non facit auriga.
