I can one-up you on that one, Dan: One night last week when it was pouring rain, I saw a hipster girl tearing down Broadway at top speed with no helmet, no lights, in stiletto-heeled boots and a billowing skirt—on a fixed-gear bike.

you wouldn't know a hipster if you tripped over one

So you mean the wet fabric of the skirt was clinging to her lithe, taut legs as they rose and fell, rhythmically pumping, each muscle tightening and relaxing with every stroke? Do you think she had to struggle against the pull of the skirt sticking to her skin? Was her face flush in the chill night air, glistening in the rain? Did a puff of steam roll past her full lips with every breath?

What sort of top did she have on? You're a journalist, right? Give us a little detail. Doesn't Savage give you a camera?

And that doesn't mean anybody wants to be told she was wearing some dumpy ass hoody. Make something up if you have to.

Pedestrian, cyclist: Right of way doesn't make dark clothing easier to see. I'm always looking for ya, but still, let's work together in the gloomies, matie.

What @8 said. I am intrigued by your ideas, sir, and wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

Was there a far-off look in her eyes behind her horn-rimmed glasses? Were her breasts gently heaving as they rose and descended?

Eyewitnesses in downtown Seattle reported recently that during the evening rush hour, traffic was snarled for blocks when a group of individuals chose to use the streets in a manner that prevented commuters from moving.

Automobile drivers, almost all driving alone, simultaneously drove their vehicles into the streets of downtown Seattle and instantly created
gridlock, impeding the progress of buses, cyclists and in some cases, pedestrians.

Apparently fully understanding and anticipating the consequences of their actions, the automobile drivers nevertheless chose to act in a manner that made movement through downtown difficult.

One frustrated cyclist, choking on the fumes emitted by the automobiles stationed around him, gasped, "I can go 25 or 30 miles per hour on this street. I should have been home by now. Instead, I've moved one block in the past five minutes!" A bus rider noted: "All the people in all the cars on this street could fit in one bus!"

The immobilization of downtown Seattle streets by automobiles, although executed without central coordination, was highly effective. Commuters are cautioned to expect more such "critical mass" events, up to 20 times per month.

Bicycle Jihad, if you copy and paste the same text over and over and over, that makes you a spammer. Spammers = unpopular.

Once = over and over?
