yes. I am here for this - downplay Europe like they downplay Asia and Africa. I refuse to recognize Europe as a true continental mass. #notsorry

Europe is Far West Asia and will now be referred to as such.

I always thought it was funny that Europe was the only continent that didn’t begin with “a.”

Do you think traffic fatalities would go down if every city and state had a map like this one? 
datanews:

Here’s our tracker of fatal traffic crashes in New York City in 2014, and our story on how we got the data. 
If you have additional information about any crash listed, or know of a crash we’re missing, please email us transponation@gmail.com.


I want this for Philly. Or maybe even a cycling specific map showing where cyclists have been hit at all by cars.

BIKING CITIES:  Planning for bike lanes in U.S. cities

Six U.S. cities have been chosen by a leading bicycle advocacy group to receive guidance with creating protected cycling lanes. Atlanta, Boston, Denver, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, and Seattle were selected from 100 applicants by the Green Lane Project, according to its sponsor, PeopleForBikes. Each will receive financial, strategic and technical assistance.

Many urban bike lanes are designated by nothing more than white stripes or green-colored pavement. The lack of any barriers leaves riders vulnerable to collisions with autos that routinely breach their lanes.

The Green Lane Project emphasizes safer designs. It uses curbs, planters and other dividers to physically separate bike and vehicular traffic. The project says separate bike lanes can reduce injuries for cyclists, drivers and pedestrians by up to 50 percent.

In 2012 and 2013, the project worked with Austin, Chicago, Memphis, Portland, San Francisco and Washington, DC, to create dedicated bike lanes. Those efforts helped to nearly double the number of protected urban bike lanes in the U.S. to 142.

Life tips of living near roads.

1. Look before you walk into the street. This applies if you are: a.) crossing the street. b.) coming around your car to open the door. c.) joining traffic as a cyclist. d.) about to walk down a bike lane.
2. DO NOT WALK IN A BIKE LANE.
3. If you are in a car, you are never allowed to drive/be in a bike lane. This applies even if: a.) it will turn into into a turning lane eventually. b.) you are just stopping for a second to drop something off.
4. Wait the couple of seconds to allow a cyclist or car to pass before opening your door. 
5. If there is not enough room to safely pass a cyclist, don’t. Just don’t.
6. If you are driving, do not honk at cyclists. We know you need to get home/to work. We do too. That is why we are there: going home/to work. We would like to get there while still living.

He’s been everywhere, man.

Mr. Cash is my bike. I earned Mr. Cash by fundraising my first $1000 of the $4500 I needed to raise to participate in Bike and Build. He came into my life on March 19th, 2013. 

6300 miles. A Mt. Everest of climbing. Oklahoma’s winds. Texas’ dirt roads. Philly’s worst winter in decades. And now an impact with a car can’t stop Mr. Cash.

Happy birthday, Mr. Cash!

My freshman year of high school i got applesauce for lunch and when I opened it, a cloud of mold poofed out I feel this post on an emotional level

one time my friend took a bite out of a hamburger and she bit into a pencil that was cooked into it.

In high school, I opened a cup of apple juice and realized it had fermented somehow in its sealed container.
