Maybe. Maybe not. You'll never know now.

If you saw the helmet, there'd be little doubt.

I don't think adults should be required to wear helmets, I don't
always. But it's incredilby
stupid not to.

So, sometimes you're incredibly stupid?

Me, too GG :-) :-) Especially as an adult who's
/required/ to wear a helmet.

Oh, well. At least behelmeted cyclists give drivers
a better sense of comfort, so drivers don't have to
go through the irritating tribulations of having to
be, y'know, careful.

Interesting, how the most vocal bicycle helmet proponents
are ugh spit ... drivers.


Cheers, and subsequent cheers, & hail, fellow -- well met,
Tom

You are SO full of ****.

Liberal Nazis.

Only in America...


You imply that Nazis are not liberal, hence they are conservative. But
Nazis were socialists (with some additional sick ideas). Hardly a
conservative ideology.


Hardly liberal, either, eh?

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who divide the world into
two kinds of people, and those who don't.

I didn't mean to suggest nazism was liberal. It's just interesting how
liberals often draw parallels between nazism and modern conservatism,
despite the fact that nazism had a leftist socialist agenda (aside from
the other sick ideas that were neither left nor right).

I like that. ;-)

Nazi's were socialist in name only, something which reading some of the
better histories of this era will make QUITE clear. When someone like
Strasser et al. tried to actually implement some of the 'socialist'
principles (e.g., taking over department stores as oppressors of the
small shop owners), the roof fell on them as the Nazi Party was becoming
more and more frightfully dependant on the kindness of industrialists.

The Nazis also stood in DIRECT opposition to the socialist and communist
parties of their millieu. That is SIMILARLY clear in any competent
history.

Furthermore, the Nazis had NO socialist nor any left-wing agenda after
the Fuhrer Prinzip was implemented, only the will of Hitler.

Maybe the reason you think others are confused is because you haven't
done your history?

It happened, so if you want to waste the time trying to find it be my
guest. Like I said, it was by the Santa Cruz, Ca. beach and boardwalk,
which is their main attraction. The train came over a bridge over a
relatively insignificant creek and then ran over the street to a few
industrial points. I think it has been paved over but I haven't been
down there for 25 years. We had the same thing here in my area 'Yuba
City' until some idiot tried to run a left turn light in front of the
train, which was moving slow, but still got the car and mangled it
before stopping.

Are you sure?

Your father, bless him, in search of the truth went and did the same
thing without a helmet, and died?
