I Just Don’t Get It

I was on my way to a massage this afternoon. I was stopped at a traffic light. My iPod was on but I could hear a really loud engine and smelled fumes. I casually looked around for a scooter but I didn’t see one.

It was some guy on a bike outfitted with a two-stroke engine. What was the point of that? It’s not like he was going up an incline- this is not San Francisco. Even then, this engine was probably not strong enough to get you up a steep hill.

As he rode off, with his feet resting on the pedals, I could only shake my head and wonder why? How lazy could you possibly be? A bike is one the most environmentally friendly ways to get yourself around quickly (especially in the city), and economical (even if you go for one of the fancy/retro-style European imports) but this engine probably makes it a bigger polluter than your average new car.

Could anything be MORE asinine?

I guess it makes sense then that he also wasn’t wearing a helmet either.

Man, I hate stupid people.
