It's the Penultimate Wednesday of 2013, Spend it Wisely!

Seasons Greetings from New York City, birthplace of the expression "bicycle-lane bad:"


Simply put, Bloomberg was a mayor of tremendous consequence. Not all his ideas were good ones — some were bicycle-lane bad — but virtually all were big ones. Small ball was never his game.

Yes, here the bicycle lane is synonymous with the very worst our city has to offer.  That's why bike lanes are causing 30-car pile-ups on the Gowanus:

Oh, wait, I'm sorry, it wasn't bike lanes, it was black ice--and if you're wondering what "black ice" means, it's a euphemism for shitty drivers who feel invincible in their crappy "crossover" vehicles.  Some might argue that if a trip's not all that important it's better to take public transportation or even just stay home during a snowstorm, but it's crucial to keep in mind that some of these people had urgent business in town that simply couldn't wait, like looking at a stupid tree like the one in your living room, only larger:

One driver, who was headed to the Rockefeller Christmas Tree, told the Daily News, "I slid for about 20 seconds. I screamed, ‘I can’t stop.' I feel lucky. There was a bus behind us. If it hadn’t been able to stop, we would have been dead."

Right.  Because no trains go to Rockefeller Center.

By the way, if you think 30-car pile-ups are an argument against driving when it comes to urban planning, think again.  I mean, look at all the money changing hands here!  Police overtime, towtrucks, insurance companies, auto repair shops...  This isn't an "accident," it's a freaking bonanza!  This is why those poor hapless bike advocates need to stop arguing that bike infrastructure makes sense because it's "inexpensive."  Uh, don't you get it?  Inexpensive is no good!  Get the granola out of your ears, for chrissakes.  When you build a highway a lot of people get rich!  Politicians, contractors, supply companies...  Meanwhile, who's getting paid when they slap some green paint on Prospect Park West?  Nobody, that's who.  It's a few gallons of Benjamin Moore from Pintchik, big fucking deal.

No, if we want some bike lanes we better start pushing for some multi-billion-dollar projects, like maybe a 200-foot wide bicycle superhighway from Staten Island to the Canadian border.  See, a lot of people would stand to gain from building a great big shitshow like that--and that's when the bribes start to flow and the politicians get their asses in gear.  Then, before you know it, you've got the green light, and 50 years later ground has been broken.

Meanwhile, in other news, today is an auspicious day since it marks the 300 millionth time someone has emailed or otherwise alerted me to the "Copenhagen Wheel:"



You know what?  Screw this smug piece of crap.  I don't want to turn my "ordinary bicycle" into a "smart electric hybrid," and I especially don't want to "connect it to my smartphone."  I hate my fucking smartphone!


Sure, I'm addicted to it like every other asshole out there, but that doesn't mean I don't hate it.  Hate it!  If I were to suddenly become a billionaire (I'm already a millionaire, obviously) the only lifestyle change I'd make would be that I'd smash my smartphone to bits every time it annoyed me, which is like every three seconds. For fuck's sake, is there anything worse than Twitter?  It's death by a zillion brainfarts!  And these people think they're going to save the earth with their dumb little wheel that connects to your phone?  Please.  In 75 years, when we're all trudging knee-deep through discarded smartphones like piles of autumn leaves on a planet has been ravaged for its lithium, we'll wish we could go back to the days of analog bicycles.

But it will be too late.

Then we'll all be dead.

Merry Fucking Chrismas.

But enough gloom and doom.  Let's watch cyclocross videos!



As you can see, the sport has changed very little over the years, except back then the bikes folded and you occasionally turned around and took a shot at one of your competitors:


Yeah, cyclocross used to be cool before WWI, but by WWII it started getting lame, and then the hipsters came along and ruined everything:



What with their trendy Surname wheels and all:


Actually, I love the Surname wheels.  They "spin up" real nice and other clichés, though if you're "running' the traditional 36-spoke box section Surnames you'll need to "change them out" after you get married.

That's a dated matrimonial reference, but it's not as dated as this:


Bitcoin my scranus, I'm putting all my money in the Cipollini since I'm guessing it will be the only form of currency with any value after the impending global economic collapse.

What's that?  You haven't heard about the impending global economic collapse?  Oh yeah, it's coming soon and it's going to be a disaster, and this is what it's going to be like afterwards:



Of course, if you want to see the rest it will only cost you $27,000 (not sure why they need $27,000 for ketchup, cogs, and SPD cleats, but then again I'm not a filmmaker), which comes out to about five (5) Mario Cipollini pogs in post-apocalyptic currency:



I wonder if, at least in the case of films, Kickstarter would consider adding a "kill fee" feature, wherein for only twice the amount of the goal the filmmakers promise not to go ahead with the project.

Seems like a bargain in this case.

Opposite of Epic -

Remember when we were talking about the meaning of "Irony"?

I was sitting on a southbound X27 "Express" Bus stuck in rubbernecking traffic looking at the accident while talking to someone who also usually commutes from Bay Ridge to Midtown by bike. We would have been home for a long time by the time the X27 got off at 65-67th Street. At least it was warm in there.

Just visited the pre-post-Bloombergian apocalyptic city with bicycle. Why oh why ride the wrong way on the bike lanes fellow bicyclists? And take out yr earbuds. Not sanctimony here / but I felt bad when I had to body check you whomever you were, riding obliviously straight at me with no lights and my spouse right behind me - you would have crashed into us hard! Instead, you just bounced off a parked car and then yelled at me. Should this be on Craigslist instead? But really...never threaten / only act.

Now you are figuring it out snobby.

Before the Interwebs was a household thing I would go around my town advocating for bicyle-cycling access. I was an epic failure because I was advocating restriping streets. (AKA Sharrows)

It's got to be big, expensive and obvious. When it comes to bikes, entirely separate from autopia infrastructure because bikes don't belong on their streets.

These days, it needs a revenue component, like BailoutBikes in NYC. Add a toll system and surround your grand elevated bridge system with LCD panels to sell advertising and broadcast Fox news.

I think the real reason that bike lanes and infrastructure improvements aren't more popular, politically or otherwise, is that most people are lazy and riding a bike takes effort and planning. Thus there aren't enough riders (voters) using them, so no one cares.

It's really that simple.

I don't buy that. There are plenty of vocal bicyclecyclering taxpayers, and when organized results do follow. Attitudes, not infrastructure, are the problem.

Admittedly, my view is skewed (and screwed)'cause I live in an area (DC Metro) were bicycle infrastructure has made progress. But my travels around the country find bicycle infrastructure developments in places - small towns/cities - where I would not have expected.

So how do you win the hearts and minds of the cagers? They are a miserable lot and hate you for getting places easier, for slowing them down, for making them pay attention, etc. Maybe in 50 years ... about the same time line as Snobbers big pork barrel bike lane.

I learned three things commuting this morning.

1. The plowing of bike lanes before streets is an urban myth.

2. TA gives away coffee on the Manhattan Bridge just for signing a petition politely asking not be killed on Atlantic Avenue.

3. My dog intends to fund his holiday shopping by posting cell phone video of this morning's commute on Kick Starter and seeking backers for a full length feature. I could understand calling it "Citi Bikes on Ice" because that sounds holiday themed, but he's sticking with "Braking Bad."

4. I'm probably getting a chewed sock for the holidays.

Okay, that's four things. But I'll forget a couple.

I always forget this:

5. Never lend your smart phone to my dog and his buddies. They text pictures of their butts. He says it's a canine thing; I wouldn't understand. The folks on my contact list also don't understand.

Yes, I'm always amazed that people become dumbfounded by the fact that a thin layer of water goes from liquid in the sunny daytime to frozen once the sun goes down, especially when said water is on a bridge or overpass when freezing happens faster because of the absence of a geothermal mass (a.k.a the ground).

Anon 2:55, I think you hit the nail on the head with the "make them pay attention" comment. Driving is supposed to be easy and stress-free compared to the tedious labor of walking or riding a bike. Being forced to use caution while operating a large, deadly machine seems like an intolerable imposition. That's the best I can figure.

Like you I've been quite surprised at where I've seen infrastructure popping up, though. Syracuse! Who knew?!

Leroy,
My wife and I work with a group that traps and neuters feral cats. One volunteer thought a recent trappee looked as if it had worms, and was asked to take a photo of the cat's butt and send it to one of the experts in the group. She did -- but instead accidentally sent it to a partner in the law firm where she works. Partner was very confused to get a cat-butt shot from a co-worker.

First, I need to be more careful with my editing.

Second, the biggest reason there's a lot of hoopla surrounding climate change is because,

you guessed it,

there is big money to be made from "Climate Change" ;) ;).

They're selling you Chicken Little's a bill of goods in the hopes that the Govt. will send some money their way, to pay for or subsidize whatever the scam is, be it carbon offsets, inefficient sustainable energy, or just trying to bottle cattle farts.

By the way, I'm often complemented by believers who think I am, by riding a bike, reducing my carbon footprint.

I always tell them "no, I'm reducing my lardy buttprint".

So if you want to by or some carbon offsets, or pay more for wind or solar energy, knock yourself out.

Better yet, get onto kickstater and sell shares in a carbon offset business. Let us know how many believers are willing to fork out their own money for the pipe dream.

Indeed, Climate Change is big business.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_subsidies

A 2011 study by the consulting firm Management Information Services, Inc. (MISI)[7] estimated the total historical federal subsidies for various energy sources over the years 1950–2010.

The study found that oil, natural gas, and coal received $369 billion, $121 billion, and $104 billion (2010 dollars), respectively, or 70% of total energy subsidies over that period.

Oil, natural gas, and coal benefitted most from percentage depletion allowances and other tax-based subsidies, but oil also benefitted heavily from regulatory subsidies such as exemptions from price controls and higher-than-average rates of return allowed on oil pipelines.

The MISI report found that non-hydro renewable energy (primarily wind and solar) benefitted from $74 billion in federal subsidies, or 9% of the total, largely in the form of tax policy and direct federal expenditures on research and development (R&D).

Nuclear power benefitted from $73 billion in federal subsidies, 9% of the total, largely in the form of R&D, while hydro power received $90 billion in federal subsidies, 12% of the total.

leroy said...

Dear Mr. Crosspalms --

I think your work with feral cats is comendable.

My dog, however, says it reminds him of why he and his friends never accept bacon from strangers driving vans.

Of course, he just texted me a photo of his butt next to a tequila bottle asking if he has a worm.

I'd call him an asshole, but that would only get another text.

I'd call him an Anthony Weiner, but that would be even worse.

Bible Thumper, etc. etc. said...

How much did the Govt. make from oil and gas leases, in-kind royalties, taxes at the pump, and income and corporate taxes?

Here you go..


"As a tremendous source of revenue that fuels the U.S. economy, major energy producers pay their fair share: the oil and natural gas industry pays income taxes, royalties and other fees totaling nearly $86 million every day. The industry also pays the federal government significant rents, royalties and lease payments for production—totaling more than $100 billion since 2000.

Supporting our economy, U.S. energy companies pay income taxes at an effective rate far higher than most other manufacturing companies. In 2011, oil and natural gas industry income tax expenses (as a share of net income before income taxes) averaged 40.6 percent, compared to 25.1 percent for other S&P Industrial companies.
- See more at: http://energytomorrow.org/economy/taxes#sthash.G5jEU7a2.dpuf

Here's some more.

...federal and state taxes on gasoline production and imports have been climbing steadily since the late 1970s and now total roughly $58.4 billion. Due in part to substantial hikes in the federal gasoline excise tax in 1983, 1990, and 1993, annual tax revenues have continued to grow. Since 1977, governments collected more than $1.34 trillion, after adjusting for inflation, in gasoline tax revenues—more than twice the amount of domestic profits earned by major U.S. oil companies during the same period.

As illustrated in Table 1, since 1977, there have been only three years (1980, 1981, and 1982) in which domestic oil industry profits exceeded government gas tax collections. In the remaining years, gasoline tax collections consistently exceeded oil industry profits, reaching a peak in 1995 when gas tax collections outpaced industry profits by a factor of 7.3

Then they can brag and shame the lesser toms into jumping into the trap.

Bible thumper. said...

No anxiety here, especially about climate change.

Any old way, it looks like all those subsidies (also known as tax breaks) are necessary just so the energy companies can afford produce a product for the govt. to tax.

It's not like govt. subsidies for solar, so that the CEOs can pay themselves big bonuses before the company is completely bankrupt.
