I do not get it.
I was watching : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D84FYufHt1I

People rock up with 32kg luggage.
BA allows 23kg per suitcase.
People are asked to take some stuff out and take it with them as hand luggage.

What does it matter where people put it?
The total weight of the suitcase and hand luggage will still be on the plane.

Or are people taking shit out to not have the 'overweight' charge?
Doesn't this show that people can cheat the system and the check-in staff are helping?

Or have it missed the point.

Put your bike in a hard-cased container to stop the air service staff from breaking it. They'll still find a way to lose it though.

Yes I have been cucked by public transportation.

The 123 bus service ran by Stagecoach East Kent has run late in the past.

Ever waited 45 minutes at a train station only to have the train blast past you going 60 mph? I have, the conductor was looking right at my dumb ass. Not a scheduled stop. Had to walk 25 minutes and wait an hour for a bus with a gay bartender in an apple bees. Public transit gets so bad as soon as you get even slightly out if the city.

Bicycle commuting in Britain is not healthy. I tried it once and my throat was sore for the whole day. Cycling is basically exercising and greatly exchanges the breathing volume. The exhaust fumes, tire dust and brake dust from cars and trucks is simply too much in British cities. Motorcycles and mopeds are even worse. These gasses are toxic make you feel light headed. The particulates damage your nerve system and greatly increase your chance on Alzheimer.

Not saying a car is much healthier either, but a) with a good modern car you have a great air filters

I agree that train is best when available, but get checked by a doctor for EIA (exercise induced asthma) , I used to get that after cycling in the city until I was medicated for it, sounds weird but until I was diagnosed by chance I thought I was just unhealthy and air was bad.

What is the correct way to turn across traffic and why is it always the hook turn?

Seriously though stop using the pedestrian crossings to turn right.

I used to do that before I got a mirror. Still do it on occasion in the winter when my glasses get so iced over I can't see what is behind me.

I generally don't make turns across traffic on busy streets unless there is a dedicated lane for those turns. Plan ahead and make the turn in a less shitty spot.

anyone have any experience with belt driven bikes such as Priority or the new Ikea Sladda? mainly just looking for a bike to commute to work with and occasionally go to the park. Thanks!

No experience but I do know that they work and require less maintenance than chains. They're not quite as efficient, and they require an exact alignment (so no external gearing) so derailluers are pointless with them.
Good for fixies or hub-gear bikes.

however, CANYON has made a commuter bike with beltdrive, that is absolutely stunning, albeit a bit more expensive.

Why do motorists revert to autistic screeching children when you call them out for being in the wrong?
Some guy literally just tried to ram me off the road after he pulled out dangerously in front of my bike and I calmly told him to look where he was going.
Last night a guy cut me off by pulling an illegal U-turn whilst on his phone and then gave me the finger when I asked him to put the phone down and pay attention to the road.
Why is it so hard to just say sorry and maybe next time pay attention to the rules of the road?

Just punch one of the mirrors off to teach him cause and effect, and get on with your day. There's no point in getting mad at a cager for not having any situational awareness or knowledge of traffic laws. It's like getting mad at a dog for pissing on your rug. Your personal feelings do not contribute to the training process and should be set aside.

Is this viable?

I've wanted to punch quite a few mirrors off but it's obviously illegal. If I do it when they come to a stop and bike away, what are the chances I'll be in deep shit?

Why are there so many goddamn buses in Seattle? I mean holy shit there were no less than 3 buses on that particular intersection at any given moment.

How do you cuckd city fags deal with it? Last time I was on a bus it was absolutely disgusting with weird people everywhere. I mean, we literally made fun of other kids in school for taking the bus, and now they're all adults they all take it like good little goys.

Imagine all those people were in their own cars, or even on bikes, and imagine the death of all movement in the city. Buses are needed more than ever but when the majority of people who take them are considered 'undesireables' it is usually linked to where you are going or coming from more than the mode of transport.
