Re: Blistering blue barnacles

When I'm right in the middle of dealing with a poblem and needing all my focus, somehow everyone nearby suddenly wants all my attention and ignores my signing and asking them to wait for a tiny moment. Makes me mentally rip their bloody heads off.

Re: What-if 0061: "Speed Bump"

[...] But what about an emergency vehicle? These have provision for poor road conditions.[...] here in europe most Ambulance cars are just VW transporters with modified interior (much added weight). Some got stiffer suspension some don't. In any case it is far worse on speed bumps. if anything a fe...

Studies show an average 18% reduction in traffic volume and an average 13% reduction in collisions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_hump soo while 18% of vehicles will avoid that road, the per vehicle collision increases? let...

Re: 1116: "Traffic Lights"

My problem with roundabouts is that they require a level of trust in the competency of all other drivers approaching the roundabout which I will never have and which I feel would be entirely unwarranted for anyone to have. I drive with a mindset as if every other driver on the road is a homocidal o...

Re: 1065: "Shoes"

I've been tempted to get a pair of these, but I've heard several horror stories about how they provide almost no protection against sharp things jamming into your foot - one of the key features of a regular shoe. only if you buy rip offs. the original are reinforced with fiber.

I, too, have a pair of Vibram Bikilas (without laces). I think for my next pair I might actually get thinner ones. The Bikilas are really the thickest, most shoe-like model they have, especially if you get the laced version. They're extremely comfortable, and are also the quietest shoes I've ever w...
