I think sums up the bikes vs. cars argument fairly well. It's possible that there's a greater percentage of jerks that ride bikes vs. in cars, but I think it's more likely that they're just more noticeable.

I do most of my riding on the Burke-Gilman & Sammamish River trails away from cars though, so I don't have a lot of personal experience.

I can't believe some bike riders in seattle either (and I'm one - in the nicer months) Like a bunch of arrogant f$#@'s in a "pace line" I saw weaving through summer traffic on the Burke Gillman at 25mph rudely shouting "cear!" at everyone they came up on.

Another time some dude decided to clear his nasal passages as I was behind him (five or six feet), spraying me with snot. I was so pissed I almost kicked him of the road as I pulled up beside him to motion as if saying "what the f*#$@ man!" He gives me an irritated look and says "hey didn't know you were on my wheel"

Not to mention some of the things I've seen in traffic. I keep expecting to see a tragic accident one day, but, amazingly, it hasn't happened yet.

Hey thanks for the link. I recall reading that a while back.

Plenty of people rund B100 up here or I even know a guy from Orcas Island that runs svo in his vehicles. VWs and the old (w123) Mercedes seem to be the most common. Some day I might go diesel/biodiesel, but right now I really don't need to drive that much. Usually filling up once a month or so.

Bainbridge stereotype.

Postby Eleua » Fri Feb 23, 2007 11:21 pm

It never ceases to amaze me how people become their own cartoon character. A few summers ago, I was flying to Seattle from Dallas. I sat next to a woman who said next to nothing for most of the trip.

50 something
single
long grey hair (hadn't seen a comb/brush in at least a week)
very 'earthy' attire.
crystal pendant (I thought that went out in the 80s)

OK, no problem

Then she and I started talking...

She moved to Bainbridge from S. California. She is now 'finding herself' through some form of art. She slipped in the requisite liberal politics at every chance. She likes Bainbridge Island because of the 'vibe.' Thinks Bush = Hitler. Says she doesn't need cheap oil (nevermind that she was sitting on a 757 burning several tons of Jet-A to bring her sorry ass to the PNW.)

I assume but can not verify:

She is the owner or roommate of several cats.
No hubby or hubby left her when she got whacky.
Does Prozac like supermodels do coke and heroin
Ex flower child


It seems that people like to become a character of what they think the archtype is of what they admire.

Conservatives do it too. Go to freerepublic.com and every other person is

Former Navy SEAL
IQ of 140 (minimum)
Makes 6 figures as a self-made man
Married to ex-beauty queen
will shoot anything that moves if it is on their property
has 2 straight A students attending the best college/prep school

My point is that you go about your business on Bainbridge, or some similar community, and you run into people that are fresh off of a SNL skit that is lampooning the community.
