$8/day is a hell of a lot better than the relatively few bike shops that rent bikes. They're usually at least $30.

Still think this will fail, due in part to the local helmet laws. Hopefully people will be scofflaws and we can get it repealed.

I listened to his podcast for awhile, then dropped it after he called people who eat meat murderers.

" Scott France of Pagliacci Pizza said they'd potentially raise prices 10–15 percent, add delivery fees of a few dollars, and consider eliminating the tip line from their receipts so diners wouldn't feel obligated to pay extra on top of higher prices."

If they do this I'm never going there again. And I really like their pizza.

I gave up half way through the 2nd to last season.

Judging by the reaction today that was a wise choice.

I really liked the first one, thought the second one was ok, and played the third one for maybe ten minutes. Very boring. That series needs to go away 5 or 10 years and then come back with something fresh.

When you protest working to middle class people who take buses to work you have run out of useful things to do.

The far right saw socialism is this movie, the far left sees something about Boers, I saw Matt Damon in a standard sci fi flick.
Dec 27, 2013 ryanmm commented on Hey, Charles: Remember Back When Drunk Driving Deaths Were Deemed "Accidents"...?.
"There isn't the faintest shred of evidence to suggest that gun violence or accidents decrease where they're heavily (and illegally) regulated, as they are in Chicago or DC. So passing such laws is both illegal and as importantly ineffective."

There is extensive evidence that restrictions on guns reduce gun deaths, and the current and largely conservative supreme court has ruled repeatedly that many sorts of gun restrictions are legal. Of course, the very far right prefers to live in fantasy land and proclaim any law that goes against their belief system is illegal/unconstitutional.
