1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I got less than 5 hours of sleep, I can barely move, and I think I'm getting sick now. How the fuck am I gonna survive another 14 or 15 hour day, outside in the cold, on my feet all day? I dont think I can make it. :(

    You poor poor thing. sleeping in for me is 630.

    so the house i wanted to buy the most that was under contract? Well I came home last night and they had already done some substantial work to it so I guess it sold. :( Now I'm looking at houses that are bigger, need less work, have better plots and cost the same. Oh well.

    WTF man?! This is the truck unloading stuff? You should tell your bosses to fuck off. 15 hours outside on your feet is just...absurd.

    Well, not really absurd. A lot of people do it. But it does suck.

    The drunkest people at the bars tend to be lobbyists, I have learned.

    My broken helmet and completely non-broken head beg to differ.

    I wouldn't ride in NYC without one. Whenever I see cyclist go helmet-less I cringe. You can seriously fuck yourself up from a fairly minor crash or fall without one. Getting slammed by a cab doing 40....ehhhhh I'd still rather have one than not.

    I considered buying a Vespa, the thing that stopped me was I don't want to wear a helmet. Oh yeah, and because I hate anybody on wheels in NYC!

    Ahh the old helmet saved my head story, there are so many of those that it's amazing there is still anyone alive from when everyone went around without a helmet.

    Absolute complete alarmist rot, cycling is a very safe activit. You are more likely to be injured as a pedestrian so do you wear a helmet when you walk down the street? Also helmets are designed to ameliorate direct head impacts something that your skull is already very good at, they also however exacerbate (and infact cause) glancing blows responsible for rotational injuries, something your skull can do fuck all about.

    Haaaa learn to ride a bike it's not difficult or dangerous and there is no basis in fact for believing bike helmets are of any use what so ever. People are just fucking scared of eveything these days.

    Try in London...

    Every week, a cyclist gets flattened by a bus or a lorry..

    It is a safer suicide option than barbiturates..

    Ok, how about my father who spent a very extended stay in the hospital when he was young after an accident back in the day when everyone went around without a helmet? Consensus seemed to be that he would have been fine with a helmet.

    Just like seatbelts and airbags, sure they can cause and exacerbate certain things, but they prevent more problems than they cause by a long shot.
