Ah. Gotcha. I thought you meant you don't leash your dog in public. My bad.

I still think the restaurant thing is kind of silly (I'm not a fan of the trend toward treating dogs like people), but it sounds like you're more the "I have my dog with me" type than the whiny asshats I've encountered who insist their animal has a right to be there. The former are generally cool, they latter not so much. Regardless, it's certainly the property owner's right to choose whether they want dogs.

Until someone invokes the Interstate Commerce clause.

It was done that way purposefully.

Ha ha no and it's also illegal, walking him on the sidewalk it's just common sense using a leash.

I don't treat him as a kid, but if I don't know how long it will take and if its nice out, why not let him enjoy the weather instead of being in a hot apartment and me having to rush back to walk him.

Spicy food is so damn painful but I can't get enough of it. My whole tongue burning but I keep wanting more

When did mountain bikes become the bicycle du jour? Seemingly everyone has one these days, even if they spend 99% of their time on the road.

I've been riding a common dirt trail recently and it's amazing how much more work these guys with the huge chunky tires and big heavy frames have to put in.

I thought this was relevant to the Dog Park/Beach discussion. String of comments on a post about the mess that was left at the beach after a bunch of assholes started a riot at an unlicensed concert this past weekend. Apparently a lot of responsible dog owners know to avoid the dog beach at all costs.

The story about the off duty cop who let his pit bull kill a Pomeranian and then just walked away from the dog beach is pure facepalm.gif

Shame too...there have been a bunch of incidents there recently...it is quite a nice beach/park, but I think the easy free parking draws out the trash. A lot of the other beaches are smaller and get more crowded...but they have no parking nearby and thus only get crowded with people who live nearby and I guess...tend not to be assholes.

He insisted he wanted to testify against my recommendation. He did not do a good job.

It's the most important rule of criminal law- defendants never ever speak. Ever. It does not help.

Yes, but I give Falcon a pass here.

I don't see how any attorney can force someone to not testify if they insist on it.

Oh I agree, nothing he could do if the idiot insisted. Just that it's one of the few absolutes in law.

When I commit crimes I always like to testify just gives me my "moment in the spotlight" so to speak. It's worked out well for me so far, as I am still a free man who can type on Styleforum.

I've been riding a common dirt trail recently and it's amazing how much more work these guys with the huge chunky tires and big heavy frames have to put in.

I've ridden 90% street for 15+ years (probably 50/50 street/trail for the ten years prior) and have always had a mountain bike. My routes are partial cobblestone and even the areas that are paved aren't in super great shape. Conversely, I wonder how those guys with those delicate looking race bikes + tires manage with all the potholes, rubble, and debris strewn about.

ps - in recent years I've gravitated to a Trek hybrid; a newer niche market that spans what I need - a rugged'ized street'able bike that I can reasonably take on the non-hardcore trails with just a tire swap.

Those road bikes aren't as delicate as you think...
