Default Horn Blowing = Lion's Roar?

You should never let the guard down in the jungle. But you should be
able to tell a threatening roar from a hesitant driver, though both
can be deadly.


Gotcha. Fear is the mind-killer. Keep killing that mind.

Or perhaps the bullying of a bull?

Lots of bull here. It scares me.

Horn Blowing: Interpreting the Message.

If someone honks a horn at you, the meaning is all in the duration. A
really brief "Bip!" means "Hi!" or "Bye!" A moderately short beep
means, "I just want you to realize I'm here." Somewhere between a
second and maybe two seconds means, "I'm here and I am annoyed at your
heedlessness." Over two seconds it means, "I'm ****ed off at you,
JERK!" Longer than three seconds it means, "I'm ****ed off at this
whole situation! And I am frustrated that I can't do anything more
effective than sit here and blow my horn. Boy am I
frustrated!" (Usually employed in traffic jams to make people around
you even more frustrated too.)

Repeated honks are either repetitions of the above (sorted by blast
duration) or monotone musical "Hellos" if done in cadence with known
tunes like "Shave and a haircut: two bits!" (Meant to be friendly.)

Like I said somewhere else: most of the time the vehicle's blowing the
horn is equivalent to the lion's roar...

"Hey, this is my territory and you better get lost --or else I eat
you!"

And guess what the monkey riding the bike said... "Yes, you can eat my
banana!"

Yeah, but if a stupid driver kills the body, what's the point of
having a healthy mind. "Mens sana in corpore sano," said the Romans.

Or was it the Greeks?

You must be tough, CommandanteApe****, if you are not scare of cars or
horns. The bull would be a piece of cake.

But the horns are dangerous.

Well, I'm chatting with my copycat, ComandanteApe****, about bull and
horns.

And what are doing here if you don't ride a bike and you hate cyclists?

I guess the better question is: what are YOU doing here because you
don't have anything to do with urban planning.

That's one of the problems with living in the boondocks: Your brain
usually slows down until you get a sort of mental retardation. I call
it the "boondocks syndrome," and it manifests by either being
indifferent to the outside world, or making stupid comments about
something that you don't care about. For example, WHAT DO YOU CARE
ABOUT URBAN PLANNING IF YOU LIVE IN THE BOONDOCKS?

FYI, I propose BIKE FACILITIES, and those are part of urban planning.
