LOL, you edited out 90% of the post and 70% of the sentence to take 14 words and make them completely out of context.

I never said I didn't respect them....I said they don't respect a yellow line.

Anyone can delete half a post, quote it and completely change it's meaning.

How about I delete most of your post, leave the words 'Pot' and 'for you?' in quotes and accuse you of trying to deal drugs?

Whatever.
how about this post where YOU type profusely about YOUR lack of respect for the double yellow?

-Dry conditions (I general avoid travelling along any painted lines in the wet).

-Clear visibility of the road ahead

-No traffic entering the road

-No gravel or those stupid fucking rumble divots the DOT have decided to put in some roads

-Only cross at points where the curve allows you to naturally move back onto your side of the road. i.e early to set up a right hand turn, or at the apex on a left hand turn. In both instances you need visibility beyond the turn, or at least beyond the apex. For right turns you look to the apex and beyond to determine if you can cross and carry more speed, for left you see beyond the apex to see if you can straighten sooner after the apex and accelerate harder.

I've ridden the Dragon once both ways and know most turns are pretty blind.....around where I live you have a lot of open sweepers and you can find yourself safely spending a lot of time over the yellow line.
emphasis added

like I was showing, you think others make the road dangerous because of their lack of respect for the double yellow, but previously you demonstrate YOUR lack of respect for the double yellow.

thus

Kettle



'nuff said have a wonderful day straightening your local roads

My first sentence was intended to mean that in the parlance of our times, "accident" has become a politically correct way of describing a situation in which someone merely screwed up.

Very few "accidents" are accidents in the truest and oldest form of the word. Most things that we call "accidents" did not occur by chance or unknown causes. They occur because of very deliberate decisions.

Basically, when trying to present yourself as the heir of intellectual superiority you agreed with me and just made yourself look like ass. Keep at it though, especially if it makes you feel good about yourself.
Wow. So Webster's is just a pile of shit? I guess I'll have to toss it out and get a copy of the only dictionary worth consulting.

And "the heir of intellectual superiority?" Really? Just because I disagreed with you? You are correct that I agree with your point that what people call accidents are not accidents in the sense that they are chance occurrences. I guess you and I don't agree on what "screwed up" means. When I say I screwed up, that means it's my fault. You seem to be saying that when someone tells someone else they screwed up they're saying it's not their fault. If that's the case, then yes, we agree on how people mis-use the word "accident."

I apologize if the "If you learn the English language" paragraph appeared to be directed at you specifically. It was not. Perhaps I should have phrased it "If one learns the English language..." and so on. I guess I screwed up.

Bonus points if that's a 2-smoker, though. Is it?

not always successful though
I'm genuinely interested to know exactly what it is. My first thought was a wheel chair rig, but the guys legs look clenched, not strapped.
