    lol that sounds awesome. There was this weird kid in high school who would go to this chinese buffet place and eat till he puked, eat more, puke. He would do this like 3 times. He was fucked up.

    Thank you for being a reasonable cyclist.

    Also, I support your stop sign approach. Stop signs are stupid and pointless, and they should all be changed to yield signs.

    I don't think all should be changed to yield signs. It depends, come on, man. Safety and stuff.

    on somewhat of a similar note, i was at this house party when i was like 18, and one of my friends got trashed and decided to make a pizza from scratch. did he know how to do it? no.


    that house was trashed.

    What does a stop sign do that a yield sign can't, aside from generate revenue in the form of fines for failure to come to a complete stop?

    I don't know if a 4 way yield would work.

    Sure it would. What makes it any different than a four-way stop? There's a protocol that dictates right-of-way that isn't undermined at all by making them yield signs.

    I used to be pretty heavily into road cycling. I can tell you cyclists are other cyclists worst enemies. The vast majority are spandex clad douchebags and they get treated by motorists as they deserve to be treated. Problem is there's no sign on your back to tell motorists you're not a douchebag too so you get the same treatment. People in cars need to think hard too though, as a fit and muscular 6'4" 23 year old man on a bike, loses every argument with a 98# grandma behind the wheel.

    I think the more sensible solution would be to loosely enforce the rolling stop thing.

    So, then, treat them like yield signs?
