    Not going to reply to every cyclist comment since I last visited. Too many and not that interested. Just expressing frustrations for my area's cyclists.

    You don't know where I live. There is literally half a car lane. Enough to fit 2+ bikers without being anywhere near danger. Still they're directly on the line. If there's a shoulder. Ride on it. Your not in less danger because they're not going to treat you like a car. It depends on what the road is like. If there's barely any shoulder that's understandable. If there's plenty of shoulder to ride on. I'm sorry I disagree. Your a lot more likely to get flat out hit by someone not paying attention when half your body is in the road than clipped by someone not paying attention going off the road.



    Oh... and I like how this thread is basically about Games of Thrones and cyclists. Another patented lounge spinoff thread

    Cambridge is a great place for cyclists - I remember it fondly; the motorists expect them at every turn and make allowances. Wonderful place.

    Did anyone else imagine Ned Stark on a bicycle while reading this?

    Things people need to stop doing Sorry this has been bugging me for a while.
    Stop making Kick-starter projects to pay for your art supplies/ lessons/ trip to Europe for "art"/ or other what-not, because you ran out of money or your portfolio wasn't good enough to get yourself some project cash.

    again sorry I know a ridiculous load of people who "ended up" in art colleges and don't spend anytime studying, or working. and now most have got the ideas to ask others to help them pay for their education and supplies and its driving me up a wall.
    -Demo-
    -Sketch Book Updated Sporadically-
    My Blog
    Tumbler & Wookmark (finished pieces and Cool stuff I find)

    I+m from Iceland but moved to Denmark about a half a year ago.

    Biking in Iceland's a bit of a canis canim edit, but, here in Denmark, it's heaven!

    People follow the rules, pedestrians got their own space, bikers got their own space, and drivers got their own space.

    Plus, the beer's cheap

    But, on Game of Thrones.

    Am I the only one that found it boring?

    For me, it's like watching the parliament, but, with swords..

    Well if your Parliament involves trying to kill 10 year olds, incest, decapitation, boiling people alive with pots of gold, sex, midget sex and implied underage sex. hoookay. I need to watch that too.

    This is what the thread should have been about in the first place.

    Nah, Game of Thrones on Bikes is so much more entertaining...

    Could be the next hot series: Sex and Death on Wheels

    Or better: Sex, Death and Spandex

    ...except that could describe an awful lot of other movies...

    "For me, it's like watching the parliament, but, with swords.."

    youre right, lot of talking. quite entertaining pariament though. it wouldnt have made much difference if it had been set in middle ages Spain and Italy with a very few fantasy monsters. the alternate, simplified europe just made for a smaller game, with fewer thrones, and so was more easily contained in a single narrative. least, thats how it seemed.

    I've got to agree about Game of thrones. I was a big fan of Martins' work in the early years: Song for Lya, Fever Dream, Sand Kings; but I don't like the Game of Throne books.The writing is top notch and the characters well realized, plots convoluted and convincing BUT I want my fantasy to be fantastic and FICTION; I want good and evil and the good guys to win and the bad gouys to lose. I don't want real life, with a couple of wierd things thrown in to make it seem fantastic. I want peoples efforts to have meaning and affect the world and its outcome. Thats why I read; to forget about real life for awhile. If I want real life I'll watch the F'ing news.
