DOES NOT COMPUTE!!

Anyone familiar with Deathlok will know that incorporated into my brain is a computer that regulates the formaldehyde pumping through my body (to counteract the decay), prevents suicide (you wake up as an indestructible killing machine with no will of your own and see how your like it) and of course provides information. Despite the advanced technology in the Cyborg computer, there are time that the illogical behavior causes a "DOES NOT COMPUTE!!" So here are things that do not compute.

Bicycles - They are great for exercise and a wonderful and ecological method of transportation. Does the couple above look hap-happy on their bikes??

Since when did "People should have courtesy to bicyclists" become "Bicyclists own the road and God help the multi-ton vehicle for being on the road." I'm not saying run these guys down. I'm saying that these things should be on the side walk and if they travel in the street, they should be "on the lookout" for cars. If I'm driving 25-30 mph down the street, and I can't get around some jackass on a bike, shouldn't he move onto the sidewalk or let me by.

Work has instituted a statement that "bicycles are to be treated as vehicles on the road". Bullshit!! I'm trying to get to work on time and I got some guy hoof it at 20 mph who won't give ME the courtesy of moving over. If it's that great that everyone who doesn't live over 30 miles from work is biking, put in a bike path.

Further on that note. since when did it become a child's right to play in the street? Sure Sure!! We all played in the street. I'm not saying that they should ban kids from the street. What I don't get is the attitude of kids today, when you drive by that you are in THEIR way. If that's the case, should I just hope the curb and drive on the sidewalk like the Kurgen??

"AHAHHHAAAHAA!! EXCUSE ME! HAHAHAHA!!"

Kids flip you off or slow down and give you attitude. The second you drive by at open your door to hit them or get out with a bat, you are the one that's wrong.

Last year, a kid in my development got hit by a car. He broke his leg. the woman was driving 25 MPH (the posted speed limit) and the kid skate boarded out into the street and was skateboarding along side her car and she hit him. The neighbor's were in an uproar. This poor kid. HE WAS SKATEBOARDING INTO TRAFFIC!! This poor woman became this vehicular villain (heh . . .alliteration).

Finally, when did it become appropriate to bring a child under 1 year old to the movies. Despite the research that shows that children that young are at risk for hearing problems because their audo development isn't adequate enough to handle the decibles of the theater, people opt for the "save the money on a sitter today and spend it on a co-pay later" mentality. Plus (since I live close to Atlantic City. . .but not too close), if you take the gamble that your child will be quiet in the theater, fine. If it cries, you through a 7! Get out! No hard 8! No Yo! Get Out! Other people have paid to see AND HEAR the movie. Was there a couch two rows in front of me at X3? You betcha!

AND THOSE bikes on HIGHWAYS! THAT IS THE WORST!

I live in a hilly area and the biker will be doing 5mph (55 limit) up in his lane, and 35 down (60 limit).

If they want to ride on public streets with cars they need to buy a tag. Not just any tag a tag that is about $5000, payable to the city. Than I'll deal with them a little more hospitable with them.

No proof reading on MY blog. You'll bring the class average up.

When we played in the street as kids, we had respect for adults. Cause if you didn't, they would slap your face for you. And if you went home and told your mom, she'd slap you for making the nice man slap you. Now she would contact a lawyer and file a lawsuit. There are kids on my street who will just stand there inches from your car. One of these days I'm going to kick their dad's ass for the poor job he did raising his kids.

I agree with gj! Kids are disrepectful to adults. I've seen some I'd like to kick their little buttocks! And taking small kids to movies should not be allowed!

Saw X3 tonight, and some jackass family brought their TWO toddlers into the movie. They cried through all of the violent parts. I wanted to murder the father.

That's wrong!

The whole family should go. . . okay, just the parents. . . .no, the family.

Was your gun not loaded, Wyatt?

Maybe if everyone complained--and I know you know how to do that!-the theaters would post a no small child warning. Do they charge for babies? It's just stupid to take them!

Exactly!! If they charged the infants, it would make paying the babysitter a better idea.

The Ritz theater around Phila and NJ have a no one under 6 policy.

Me Likey!

I would think the reason for going to a movie would be to enjoy it, so why not hire a babysitter, so everyone can enjoy?!

RE: kids at movies--i simply believe that it is obligation to properly deal with anything that comes out of your body. get the toilet seat wet, wipe the seat. don't spit your gum on the ground. take responsibility for clearing the room with malodorous flatulence and above all else, control your kids in public. 'nuff said.

RE: bikes--cops should just hand out tickets if bicyclists don't follow the rules of the road. if they want to be treated equally, they should have to stop at stop signs like the rest of us.

Children = ABC Gum, Farts and excrement = Priceless.

Agreed on the tickets for bikers. If I'm stuck in traffic, how great would it be to have bicycle standing there not allowed to pass.
