“It never gets easier. It just gets faster.”

“People talk about cycling as being this endurance sport of suffering and pain, but you use the word several times…”
“It’s bullshit.”
“You’ve used the word several times — game.”
“Of course! You can suffer as much as you want. If you do the wrong thing at the wrong time, you will never win a race. You can not compensate your stupidness by suffering more. First, you must begin to do the right thing at the right moment. That’s the art of cycling.”

Mother’s Day Mash

How come when I show this video to people they always say something like “That’s so reckless!” or “He deserves what’s coming to him!” but when I show people this article, entitled No charges for LASD deputy who fatally struck cyclist while typing on computer, exactly no one’s first response is “That’s so reckless!”?

(Aside: That video was uploaded on Mother’s Day. If my mom saw me doing that on Mother’s Day, my mother would kill me as a present to herself.)
