that's at a shopping center on San Mateo, and what you don't see is that there's an entrance just on the other side of the wall that is just below normal curb-height.
It would be quite easy to do if you are distracted for a second, but what it does beg is "why doesn't this happen more often?"
i mean, we ARE in NM...
it says FUCK in that one demon's mouth,
so there's that
that this is a two-for-one fail, as the the big honking truck next to the van is parked at an angle and on the line.
you are wrong, fondue.
this is (one of) the last space(s) and you can see to the driver's side he could have easily fit in that one space and passengers would have had all the room they needed (elderly or not) to get in or out and even had a raised curb to use as a step.
Excuses are just that,
and mostly lame to boot.
my band van was a full size extended dodge van that i used to parallel park IN A SINGLE SPACE with no problems whatsoever.
the problem is that these assclowns don't feel they need to take the time or consideration to park like a normal human being because they are NOT normal human beings.
They are the cliché of the stupid american: lazy, inconsiderate and born with their heads firmly lodged in-gluteus.
i do get a little warm and fuzzy when thinking that all of my drum heads the last 7 years were castoffs from Danny Carey, Brann Dailor or some other famous drummer i admire, BUT that fact doesn't keep me from slothing all over them.
Most professional musicians of their caliber can afford to "re-head" or even replace their equipment more often, while my poor ass can barely afford normal/regular maintenance on my gear.
...is that it's almost always big honking trucks that you see parked like this.
Notice the truck next to this one parked ON the line next to a handicapped space.
i don't know if DEXTER already won the title of BEST IDEA RUINED BY TRITE DIALOGUE, but it certainly should.
The premise of a vigilante serial killer working for the cops could only be ruined by soap opera-worthy conversations full of "previously on" exposition. No real person talks like this, and it ruins every single episode...i guess 3+ minutes of ACTUAL "previously on" clips can't keep the viewer up to speed.
TERRIERS was easily one of the best (if not the BEST) shows this year, and it just goes to show that you can't count on viewers to save something they don't know anything about. The commercials for this series -though frequent- gave no indication of what the show was about, or how great Donal Logue and the rest of the cast are in it.
What amazes me about the last post is that it seems to be written from the perspective of an old lady, yet the spelling, grammar and capitalisation of every line suggest it was written by an 8 year old.
I have ridden bicycles most of my life, and much of that time for a job. Since I have done this in several different cities, I have come to an understanding of how to do it safely - ride any way you can stay alive.
There should be laws and rules applied to everyone in the traffic stream, but often all of the "rules of the road" are impractical and even put the bicyclist at a much greater risk.
Certain allowances should be made regarding these conditions, and instead of cracking down on bicyclists, the police should focus on motor vehicle offenders, as they are the ones that pose the greatest risk to everyone else.
It would also make sense to make Silver a limited stop-sign boulevard, as suggested by the original post.
