Bicycle traffic jam in Utrecht Netherlands This is what happens when cyclists have to wait for green light in Utrecht (Netherlands)

Traffic jams chillin, wasup…something about riding that puts a smile on our face…good way to share life…the journey is a rich experience, rather than focusing solely on getting to your destination.

Nuclear weapons are already in the hands of terrorist groups: state terrorists, the US primary among them. It’s conceivable that weapons of mass destruction might also fall into the hands of “retail terrorists,” greatly enhancing the enormous dangers to survival.

The very language we use to describe the self-made ideal has these fault lines embedded within it: To “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” is to succeed by dint of your own efforts. But that’s a modern corruption of the phrase’s original meaning. It used to describe a quixotic attempt to achieve an impossibility, not a feat of self-reliance. You can’t pull yourself up by your bootstraps, anymore than you can by your shoelaces. (Try it.) The phrase’s first known usage comes from a sarcastic 1834 account of a crackpot inventor’s attempt to build a perpetual motion machine.
