    Phoenix Pay System - Shit's Horrible

    What date though? I’m under the impression that they can only claw back payments for 6 years so those days are falling off every 2 weeks…

    ‘Bike culture’ enjoys limited receptivity among Canadians

    I missed the part where the Roman’s were driving 5000 lb monstrosities over 50 km/h, what were they called? I thought they walked?

    ‘Bike culture’ enjoys limited receptivity among Canadians

    Actually not true (assuming wheel size under 20 inch). The Highway Traffic Act allows bike on the sidewalk if the wheel size is equal or less than 20 inches. It’s presumably targeted at kids bikes, traditionally 20” is for under ~8 years old but you can’t write the rule that way so they went...

    ‘Bike culture’ enjoys limited receptivity among Canadians

    There are 2 stop signs in my neighborhood that are 3-way stops but they’re really just traffic calming. The vast majority of vehicles that I see don’t stop, and some don’t even slow down. The ones that slow down are still going faster than many bikes are at normal speed when the cars ‘roll’ the...

    ‘Bike culture’ enjoys limited receptivity among Canadians

    I live in a small town and bike to work most days, year round. They plow the roads, I biked to work in Winnipeg too and they don’t really plow the roads. Admittedly it helps that I live less than 10 km from work. In several Nordic countries with similar climate this is normal, they’ve developed...

    Stop The Presses,....Finally Hot Dog Buns and Wieners In Same Size Packages.

    They’ve been waiting 50 years for the right timing to be able to sell two fewer buns for the same price.

    ‘Bike culture’ enjoys limited receptivity among Canadians

    The ironic part is that when you get into the more expensive department store bikes (~$400) you can actually get a much nicer bike for the same price at a bike store! And the bike store will size it for you, make free adjustments for the first year, and if you break something the parts are...

    ‘Bike culture’ enjoys limited receptivity among Canadians

    This seems logical but it’s actually not true. Here’s an article Numerous studies over several decades have shown that expanding roads draws more traffic and that replacing roads with bike lanes actually decreases traffic. It’s counter-intuitive.

    Netherlands Selects C-390 to Replace Hercs

    I think they even submitted a bid. One of the requirements was that it had to be in production when the bids were submitted, it was not, IIRC they had one or 2 prototypes at the time and were disqualified.

    VAC wait times

    it’s hard to say because it’s unilateral, which is presumably why it took so long. But BPA assured me that it’s immaterial (turns out they were right). All you have to prove is that you joined with one level of hearing (recruiting medical) and you don’t have that anymore (I think the threshold...
