Guitar Hero on a bike

I wonder how much time this took to setup? Less than it takes to watch. Interesting concept. I want Guitar Hero for Christmas. Now accepting donations.

Camera catches NYPD officer as he drops his shoulder and sends a bicyclist sprawling through air

July 29, 2008

**Update** According to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun, NYPD Officer Pogan’s version of the events don’t exactly line up with the video below.

Pogan offered a fantastical version of the incident. Pogan claimed that Long drove his bicycle directly into him, knocking the cop to the ground and causing “lacerations on deponent’s forearm.”

Officer Patrick Pogan, a 23 yr. old rookie on his first month on the job, is currently on suspension while the matter is investigated. He’s really overdoing it in his quest to to win Rookie of the Year. After being knocked to the ground, the victim, sorry…”suspect,” Christopher Long, was then charged with attempted assault, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. According to (a website that is about as pro-military/police/flag and anti-ACLU as you can get:

Pogan reported that Long was weaving in traffic, “forcing multiple vehicles to stop abruptly or change their direction” to avoid a collision, a point contested by several riders behind the bicyclist.

Pogan also cited Long for physically struggling during the arrest, refusing to put his hands behind his back, “thereby making handcuffing difficult.”

Check out the video below. If the cop wanted to stop this guy, I think he probably could have done so. Officer Pogan doesn’t raise his hands to signal Long to stop, he just waits until he’s next to him and checks him hard to the concrete. Incident happens around the 0:25 mark. Police brutality apologists, quickly turn your brains off, and being your defense……now.

World Naked Bike Ride

No joke. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Let me try to translate the above for you.

“Blah, blah, blah, blah, naked. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, hippe-crap”

This group has chapters around the world. I will provide a link to their website, you click at your own risk. Don’t view on an empty stomach.

I have so many logistical questions for these people. For example, is anyone worried about road rash? I’ve had that on my leg, and it’s not fun…..and w/out any clothing to take some of pain out of the slide, well…

Drunk driver plows head-on into cyclists at bike race

Drinking, doing cocaine and then driving lead to some horrible consequences. Picture snapped from a distance at the instant driver hit the first cyclists. 1 man was killed, 10 injured. Not for the faint of heart, as bodies and bikes are flying everywhere. More here.
