Not quite to the extent as you see in the Netherlands, and taxi drivers are (of course) still cunts.

>Like pretty much everything else in this city, the answer is both yes and no.
Pros: Lots of bike lanes, lots of cyclists.
Cons: Streets are always in horrendous condition and motorists like to use the bike lanes as parking spaces. Drivers are insane but at least they know to watch out for cyclists.

/n/ has its own pace and doesn't need shit posts to move it along.

In any case your question belongs on ---> /fit/.
Confirmed shitpost, but no it won't.
It will allow you to be lean enough to have such muscle definition - but it won't give you a great torso like that.
not wearing those shoes it wont.

if you spend some time out of the saddle you'll work your abs, lats, and some biceps and in the saddle you'll get massive triceps and some shoulders.
plus [spoiler alert] legs and bum [/derp]

but you'll still have an ugly head.

When I was 9 years old (late 90s), I read a children's "country guide" book about Japan that included a photo of platform pushers squeezing passengers into a train. Later in life I saw a video of the practice, and traced it to Lyle Hiroshi Saxon's channel, it was the Seibu Ikebukuro Line from 1991. I've also seen a video of pushing on the Tokyu Toyoko Line in 2006, at Naka-Meguro.

I would like to ask, in the year 2015, if "pushing" passengers onto trains is still common in Tokyo, either on JR, private or subway lines. I've been...

They don't forcefully shove you in. The person who gets pushed wants desperately to catch that train instead of waiting for the next one. The pusher is just helping you fit in the door so the train can leave.

That's why there's no problem, they're not bullying you, they're helping you.
how much do they pay these platform pushers?
It certainly seems like a cheaper alternative then buying longer trains or running more of them.

What would you add to this?

Have to fly two 24 hour flights with these guys in a month. any experience good or bad you guys could share?

If you're an American, its an eye-opening experience to use and airline that actually knows customer service. Hottest flight attendants, always smiling & will actually serve you real food. Onboard movies you don't have to buy. Only real downside I've had with Emirates is that upgrades are insanely expensive. Airport at Dubai is good & bad...too large & may have to go through multiple security screenings for no apparent reason...but awesome food courts, free wifi & a real, no-shit shopping mall inside. You'll swear off US carriers forever.

Then there was my last flight with them. There was some Pakistani (?) family new to the ways of 19th-century culture & technology. No one spoke their brand of moon-speak, so flight attendants had a hard time with the toilet training. Dad stood in front guarding the bathroom while his wife & daughters did #2 with the door wide-fucking open. Fortunately, thats the exception, but damn. Pic related...squatty potty at the Dubai airport (half of them are western style).
>I flew my first international flight on emirates once and it was epic!!!! LMAO!!!

put your fedora away, this is not something unique to emirates. many major asian carriers have attractive cabin crew and good cabin service.

there are also some really terrible non-US carriers out there, that will make the service on an american carrier seem posh in comparison.

Flying spaghetti monster?
They're supposed to be building something called the Cotton Belt line from Ft. Worth to the Airport.

I'm interested in the progress of that.
I like them alot. It should be a model for light rail systems across the country. Even though it's kind of like the BART of light rail, they built it very well.

Flying is supposed to be the safest form of transportation.

Has there ever been a study that compared the safety record of airplanes in general to crashes at airshows?

Seems like this shit happens constantly.

I've been to 2 airshows in my life and at one a aerobatic bi-plane crashed into a skydiver which killed the parachuter and took the wing off the airplane.

Why do they allow these moronic crashfests?

Why is anything allowed, anon?
I thought the whole point of going to an air show was the possibility of seeing fireballs of the unplanned variety
Was I wrong?
People go to airshows because they like to watch dangerous events. Would people go to a NASCAR race if the cars went around at 60 mph with no accidents? Would folks attend the circus if there was only clowns and elephants?

Delicious metal fenders.

When you gonna bring back the drops?
HA! I just posted after you in the Functional Thread on LFGSS.

No plans to bring back the drops anytime soon. The guys from my shop that used to do longer rides with have moved on to DH and Freeride, so I'm mostly just scooting around town now.

flaws of this according to thread are not so accurate readings in gravel. as the default roling resistance is set to ashphalt.

you can set the rolling resist to whatever in the software however. but wont'recognise during rides. Not a problem if you ride road which I do 99% of the time.

Other than that it is pretty accurate and follows the other power meter brands closely when compared side to side.
