i was checking out some different sites tonight whilst looking for new handlebars when i came across this video at Trackstar.
just put me in a room with this guy for 5 minutes.. i'd give him his very own darwin award. i'm sure most of you would feel the same.
still, you've GOT to admire a system that is designed to reward douchebags like this, and leave the rest of us in the dust when ya'll know any one of us are better suited for that position.

Subject: Re: [*BCM*] "Planners"
i may or may not be intentionally not playing stupid, but.. wait, wtf did i just say? ::shakes head::
anyway, why don't we get a bunch of cyclists together and go to the place where these "planners" do their "planning" when they're "planning" so they can see for themselves that there are a lot of us and maybe "plan" some "planning" that acknowledges us. i have a feeling the majority of the "planning" they do for cyclists is when they "plan" to not be in town when CM happens. ;D
happy trails, i'll be back on the road with ya'll when i get my bike back from the shop on thursday. my legs hurt more from -walking- everywhere than they ever have from riding. =p
