So I like going to treehugger.com since it kind of addresses some elements of saving the environment, how to do good things and modify your life to reduce your carbon footprint stuff like that (just fyi, if you talk about your carbon footprint more then once in a day and are bragging about how good you are... I will kill you...)
So that being said I go there and there are a lot of cyclists on there, of course a number of them are total duche bags acting as if they are god's gift to the road and everyone has to wait for them, crap like that. Now I'm fine with the bike lanes, stuff like that, but if you try and make me have to modify my driving habits significantly just because you think you're better then me because I'm in a car and you're on a piece of metal powered by yourself you must die. Mainly these people act like SUV and truck drivers are pure evil, oh no I'm sure there aren't any people who carry a ton of shit (snowboard, ski, surf, kayak, camp, hike, etc.) and NEED the space. Maybe a trip to ikea, or they're a student and they have to move now and then and just want a versatile method of transport hmmm? But no, there is no reason to own an SUV and anyone who does is evil. It's annoying reading their posts, even when they're flat out WRONG they still try to act like they were in the right and their world was somehow horribly damaged because someone didn't bend over to accommodate them, or heaven forbid, assumed they'd obey the rules of the road LIKE EVERYONE FUCKING ELSE.
Mainly when I've seen bicyclists on the road... they're ok, but there's always that one total asshole who does the most inane maneuver you're EVER seen and you just KNOW that's the type who's bitching about the cars and SUVs that now ACTIVELY try to hit them. I mean hell I all but know my next car that I buy WILL be an SUV... why? I'm 6'3" damnit! And I certainly hope a bicyclist or some hippie douche bag does bitch at me for it because so help me god I will have a couple of fists full of love waiting for them when they try... or a mighty grill that's lookin for blood >:3
And another thing, the loons who call into NPR thinking that gas should cost 50 dollars a GALLON just because you ride a bike and therefore everyone else on the fucking PLANET should must be killed at all costs... Hummers, your path is set
no this isn't a general discussion about treehuggers... hippies if you will in general, this is a bitch about treehuggers.com and the apparent assholes who go there. Now for the most part I care about a few things, those are usually protection of American rights, and the environment, in many other cases I'll quickly say fuck off to just about anything else, seriously...
