Senior Logic

by duncanr

I went to the liquor store Tuesday afternoon on my bicycle, bought a bottle of Scotch and put it in the bicycle basket.

As I was about to leave, I thought to myself that if I fell off the bicycle, the bottle would break. So I drank all the Scotch before I cycled home

It turned out to be a very good decision because . . .

Crash, Bang, Wallop !

by duncanr

CCTV footage captures moment a wally on a bike head butts a parked car in Erdington area of Birmingham (5 minute drive from my house)

guy was probably concussed so police are appealing for anyone who saw a dazed and confused man wandering round Erdington to contact them

difficulty – there are so many in Erdington who fit that description 😆

Saints and Sinners

by duncanr

there’s enough shit on the news every day to show that in every part of the world folk can be right bastards towards one another

then, occasionally, something happens to remind one of the other side of human nature

50 -100 people in Walthamstow, London, rushed to the aid of a cyclist trapped underneath a double-decker bus – managing to lift the bus of the man’s crushed legs before paramedics arrived on the scene

by duncanr

I hate inconsiderate road users !

I was driving to work yesterday morning – doing my usual 50 mph in a 30 mph zone – when this happened . . .

car vs cyclist400

I was approaching a pedestrian crossing when the lights changed and I began to slow down, preparing to stop

just then, an auld man on a bike fell off in front of me – [I never touched him, honest!]

I slammed on my brakes and . . .

Gardyloo

by duncanr

flying through the air200‘gardyloo’ was an expression frequently heard in my home town of Edinburgh in the ‘middle ages’

it was a warning cry, in a time before houses had indoor toilets, to alert pedestrians in the street below that a pot of piss or shit was about to be thrown out the window

perhaps it’s time it (or something of it’s ilk) should be adopted by folk in Indiana when exiting a portable toilet ?

Cyclist Collides with Arse

by duncanr

bicycle accidentA young woman cyclist in Sweden required hospital treatment when she was involved in a rear end collision

She was returning home in the early hours when she was the butt of an ill-thought out prank by a malicious mooner.

As she passed a car travelling towards her from the opposite direction, a cheeky chappie in the car stuck his arse out of the passenger window, knocking her off her bike

Police have since traced the bare-arsed bugger butt are not sure exactly what to charge him with

10k Cock Up

runners

You’re going the wrong way !

It was just one of these things. No one’s fault really. Must have been a bit of a surprise, though, to the lead runners of the 10k Town Moor race to find themselves running behind runners they had already passed.

Still, no harm done. Just need to call everyone back and start the race again and this time watch out for buggers on bikes that might be mistaken for race stewards and lead half the runners on a wild goose chase instead of sticking to the correct course
