    Hi. [​IMG]

    Ok, I know that this is a sensitive topic but do you ever experience road rage?

    Not only being exposed to road rage by other drivers, which seems to be pretty common for cyclists, but actually behaving like that your self.

    Lately when I am cycling in my sub-tropical unplanned congested megalopolis, I sometimes feel like I have to, ehmmm, "do something", which usually involves me knocking turning mirrors from illegally double parked cars.

    This kinda ended up as a small scandal yesterday when I went for a beer ride CMR ride where I kinda got angry and knocked turned a few car mirrors from illegally double parked cars.


    Has this ever happened to any one else? Should I go to see somebody about this? Don't bother noticing calling the police about these cars, it's generally known that double parking around here will have zero consequences to drivers and -everybody- does it. I probably also seen police cars driving past such cars without even reacting to the sight.


    Well... Maybe. [​IMG]

    Yes.

    Nothing says, "Get that mother out of my way!", like a stainless Automag in .44 Magnum.

    There is no such thing as "free'.

    And Angela Merkel is tired of paying for the 'free'.

    SOCOM, nice as it is and even nicer when suppressed, is still polymer and manufactured in Germany. The Germans...the make good stuff...but, the will not give you a loan for zee nice gun!

    Has Heckler & Jeckler changed their corporate philosophy from: "Because we hate you. And you suck."? They build good firearms, but man does their corporate attitude and customer 'service' department a tune-up.

    I can avoid car mirrors. It's those rapidly opening car doors that will cause you pain and grief. For car doors, go with the RPG-7.

    No need for Rick James because...well, he's Rick James, bitch!

    And NOBODY likes a pirate. Nobody.

    They're like clowns. Creepy and weird.

    Volnix, I found you a good road rage therapy video!

    I won't hotlink it, but Google "Kendra college library porn video". Girl got talent and a great future in porn! Absolutely beautiful breasticles. After watching it I feel like going out and riding past a row of parked cars with a ball bat and smashing them like I would smash Kendra.

    Kendra looks hotter then Angela Merkel I think. [​IMG] Does she also give out dodgy loans? [​IMG] (I have no idea what's going on with all this, but I think that the problem is not them giving money, it's the others not wanting to take that money.)

    Healthcare is free in the UK. [​IMG] And they are not "red" or "socialist" or anything. [​IMG] Less taxes too!

    I don't know if it's polymer, it just looks "pointy" and supposedly it doesn't brake so easy. It's also on that video game that I like. [​IMG] "Customer service"? [​IMG] What do they say on the phone? [​IMG]

    "
    You have reached H&K.
    For a Texan Accent press 0.
    If you wish to cut the "enemy" in small pieces, press 1.
    If you wish to cut the "enemy" in large chunks, press 2.
    If you wish to blow the "enemy" up, press 3.
    For all other services, as well as for being provided with more "enemies", press 4.

    Do you even Polanski? [​IMG]

    "Healthcare is free in the UK. [​IMG] And they are not "red" or "socialist" or anything."

    Uh...er...since The Iron Lady (no, not the punk band!) England has not so much drifted left as it has twisted the wheel full lock and stepped on the gas pedal. What passes for conservatives over there is just...pathetic. And it's getting that way here.

    "I don't know if it's polymer, it just looks "pointy" and supposedly it doesn't brake so easy."

    Yeah, the frame is plastic. It shoots nicely. The 'pointy' is factory muzzle threads for a flash suppressor, recoil brake or a sound suppressor. With subsonic rounds and a good can screwed on, it's a nice pistol to plink with. Accurate. They are a bit large for CCW, but it was designed as a combat hand gun.

    It's also on that video game that I like.

    Video game? No...real life!

    [​IMG] "Customer service"? [​IMG] What do they say on the phone? [​IMG]

    They say, "No! We can't help you and you can't have that! Because you suck! And we hate you!". CS has gotten better over the last couple of years. They finally realized the American customer is king and they can shop at a hundred other manufacturers.

    Actually it's unreal how people have kids from 14 years old and walk around with baby strollers packed with beer but... [​IMG] Yeah they do have social care. But when I was there I was paying 20 euro per month for electricity and a job could make you 2000pcm easily... Just dont ask the ratio here, I-need-to-forget... [​IMG]

    Ah no, I wasn't talking about the "accessories" threads, [​IMG] I was just mentioning it's overall "I-Kill-You-Pointyness" [​IMG]

    Btw, not that I care much, but do you know any nice modern revolvers? Do you know even one with that "Cock-Lowering" (just dont. [​IMG]) mechanism as the Mark 23? [​IMG]

    Woah! Full-auto boobs! 38 Super, if I'm not mistaken!

    A revolver with a de-cocker (just, don't!)? Mine all use manual hammer lowering. I block the hammer with my thumb while keeping the revolver pointed in a safe direction.

    I know a guy that was de-cocking his .357 Magnum when he was about 16 years old and his thumb slipped off the hammer spur with the muzzle pointed straight down...BANG! He put a hollow point into the instep of his foot. He's almost 50 now and still carries around some lead and copper fragments, some bone fragments and some foot pain.

    Ain't that a B... [​IMG]

    I knew I made a wise choice with the Mark23 for my potentially future (illegally) acquired firearm! [​IMG]

    Totally digging one of those semi-stubby ones too though. [​IMG]

    (I'm falling back in my old ways, I'm riding with the semi! I'm a rida, Say I'm a rida. [​IMG])

    Greece has a metric shit ton of...er...firearms that nobody know nuffin' about. One of my partner's fathers fought the commies after WW2 in Greece. His son, my partner, is a damned good shot and a fine conservative...hates socialists. I love listening to the stories of his father's fire fights and how they battled the reds.

    Now, this man's daughter is stunningly beautiful and equally skilled with a hand gun or a knife.

    I find both of them to be extremely intelligent, very logical and both are hard working success stories of legal immigrants adopting the American Dream as their own.

    Bobster... Crete is notorious for "barely legal" possessed firearms. There are some stories about hidden WW2 tanks in the caves! [​IMG]

    Yeah, 4000yo? country... A lot has happened! [​IMG]

    I remember you mentioning this (psycho) girl before... And yet I haven't met her! [​IMG]

    27??? [​IMG] (Murder - Mental Case! [​IMG])

    We don't hide our tanks!

    Meet Larry. Meet Larry's tank. Larry parks wherever he wants to park. Larry's mirrors are armored.

    In Capitalist America, tank crush YOU!

    And all you have to do is dial up Drive-A-Tank dotcom and you, too, can practice road raging while wrapped in tons of steel and surrounded by the very latest in mobile artillery.

    Haha, I am pretty prone to road-rage, and certainly my people are as well.

    If you go driving/biking in Copenhagen (the capital of Denmark, where I live) you will often come across bicyclists aggressively yelling at pedestrians or cars. It's actually to the point that it's kind of ridiculous, furthermore bicyclists seem to have some degree of death wish, it makes for a pretty gruelling experience when driving

    The same guy? Is he your neighbor or something? :D Or do you mean it in a way as "there is always a guy like that"? :D


    Been there. ;) Cycling is not as popular here as it is in DK and people always seem to say stuff like "In Copenhagen they have cycling lanes, cycling culture, cycling bodegas, cycling this and cycling that, but the weather is awful! :D

    I was trying to cycling on a windy day there once with an upright flatbar, (Kobenhavn-windy! :p) and... yeah. :D

    At least here the weather is nicer and don't have to cycle like that! (Free bikes on the street though, :D and yes the fountain next to the church was frozen solid. :D )

    I miss that Christiania place and the bodegas. :) The prices... Not too much. :D
