Stupid ass thingys I will not be taking part in
Earth Hour, March 29. For some sort of global warming protest, the WWF is urging people to turn off their lights for one hour. I'm sure that'll help. Fuck the professional wrestlers or pandas or both (maybe it's a team effort and it's not like I care for either wrestlers or pandas), but I'm turning on extra lights and running all the appliances; yes, I will be air conditioning the whole goddamn neighborhood. Actually, I'll be at a concert where the likelihood is great this will be mentioned. I will boo.
Scooter Commuter Day, March 24. I'm supposed to take a day off of work, burn an extra 60-80 miles worth of gas just because the Director of the Governor's Office of Highway Safety for Georgia wants to engage in a cheap political stunt that does nothing more than serve as an advertisement for scooter dealers? You want to know what raises awareness of two-wheeled vehicles? Riding those two-wheeled vehicles as a normal part of your daily commute. Christ, scooters are getting as bad as hippie cyclists. In a former state of fitness, I did a lot of bike commuting, but I never rode on days when there was a Critical Mass ride because I never wanted to be associated with those assholes. Kinda like how I stopped participating in a couple local scooter forums when everyone started referring to car riders as cagers. Bunch of bigoted elitist jackholes.
In conclusion, everyone else equals attention seeking assholes while I remain a perfectly secure center of groundedness and commonsense.
