    At work. Just saw a guy try to throw himself in front of about 6 cars, 3 taxis (got on the hood of each), and a MBTA bus. Tried to get inside each after the slowed down/stopped. Middle of Columbus Ave. #WTF!?! #methbenderAll you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    ^saw a similar thing on Dalton about three years ago.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    as far as i noticed the video didn't address either of those things, and the guy in it seemed to think you had a full minute to just watch his hair blow in the breeze as he rode around in traffic without a helmet (not that i've never done that, but not in a video where i talk about lights for safety reasons?!)

    ^^all drops should point toward the rear bridge no??
    (and also if they're LED then they're not really directional are they? that's what i think anyway)

    This is a bar/stem combo. You can't adjust the tilt.

    Plus I always heard they should point toward the rear dropouts, so even if the people buying these did know a rule of thumb to go by (which they don't), and even if they could adjust the bars, which they can't, they'd still end up with their lights pointing in different directions.

    And of course you want to be able to direct it - 500 lumens in the eyes of drivers is dangerous, and 500 lumens shining immediately down on the road in front of you is useless.I have DTF pants. They're crotchless. -surprisefries

    apparently eating just the egg whites is much healthier.

    and you can feel like you're a wizard who has collected the souls of many an egg into a recycled (dare i say upcycled!) pepsi bottle.somebody turn the lights off on this place already.

    But the yolks are way more delicious. Also, babbies tolerate egg yolks better than whites at first, less albumin.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Haha, no man I'm just messing with you.
    The reference is to Mother Night, wherein a man pretends to be a Nazi propagandist inside Hitler's Germany at the behest of the US government, is extremely successful at it, and then when the war is over (and no one knows he was a spy and not a sincere Nazi propagandist), he goes into hiding, and he is arrested by Israel when he is discovered. (The 1996 movie adaptation was fantastic, btw.)
    I thought there was no way you would actually take my gun and bible comment seriously, so when the irony was lost on you I pretended to be sent into a spiral of an identity crisis. As Vonnegut says in Mother Night, "We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be."
    Given my own propensity toward pretend awfulness, many people who have never met me IRL probably think I'm a huge asshole.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks
