Today I learned it's legal in California to park your car in a bike lane "if your vehicle does not block a bicyclist".  Think about that one...  *facepalm*

In "wide" bike lanes that are filled with parked cars, the remaining strip is narrower than a bike lane and it's too dangerous to ride there -- any one of those parked cars could have a door open at any time and cause me to crash, people have died that way. So I'm stuck moving into the normal traffic lanes with drivers behind me fuming (pun very much intended) at the belligerent cyclist who won't use the bike lane. Everyone wins! Of course by "everyone", I mean "only the people already in their houses not even using the road right then".

But I bet any one of you $100 the police would determine that 99% of the parked cars aren't "blocking a bicyclist".Maybe the enormous RV would get a citation, but I'm not convinced.

Ugh.
 
‘U.S. bombing of civilian first responders “a common tactic with drone strikes”.’

But, any males a drone strike kills that look to be over 18 aren't civilians, so we can't be bombing civilians.

Bradley Manning "trial" -- 14 days of prosecution, 3 days of heavily-restricted defense, and next a government rebuttal to what little the defense was allowed to argue.  What a farce.

I suggest if LGBT tourists don't take a part in protest rallies they will not be arrested in Russia. =] That is another horror story for people who never visited Russia. =]

Story
Tagline
I'm the Ashleigh you're searching for. But keep searching, maybe on Twitter...
Introduction
Like Ramona Flowers, but without all those pesky evil ex'es.

I love computers and bicycles and musics and haircolour and hot green tea and Doctor Who and justice and skates and chewing gum and quiz shows and beaches and vinyl records and lima beans and conjunctions and stuff.
Bragging rights
I survived my life so far. Ka-boom.
