    Saw a bloke on a hybrid nearly kill himself 3 times in 3 junctions up Moorgate this morning. Knew something was afoot when he was track standing at the lights by London wall. This was followed by squeezing between a reversing lorry and a car that was stopped to let it out, under taking a van as it was turning left, and then over taking another van that was turning right. Thankfully Darwinism in action was avoided, but is getting to work 30 seconds earlier on a Friday really that important?

    Yep that was me. I saw a Columbian stunt rider balancing on a wall and wanted to copy him and so found a wall in London to practice on via google maps.
    The 30 seconds was important as it goes, except I ended up being 45 seconds late as I caught my trousers on a pushchair on a crossing further up and it took a while to get untangled and shut the screaming parent up. But it's all good.

    To the idiot on the Plug who nearly ran into me this morning having RLJ'ed into the oncoming traffic lane at New Oxford St/Museum St: You, sir, are a knob.

    yeah that was me, sorry I'm struggling with controlling the plug, I usually use one of those chrome flip up things instead but had to use the plug for today. I was in a hurry to get home because the Mrs' bath water was running out

    those marathon things in 30/35c don't take any shit. You won't win any TTs but damn they laugh at glass

    My gaggia classic seems to lose ummph when it's properly warmed up. First shot of the day pulls fine, but when the machine has been in for a while, or does a few shots back to back, it struggles to get flow through the puck.

    What's the most likely culprit? Solonoid? Would that be effected by temperature?

    Most likely. They're poxy little things and need very regular cleans

    ome epic twat trying to ride no-handed all the way up TCR this evening. Not only is it very skettchy for peds stepping out behind traffic now they've made it 2-way, this massive idiot is filtering no-handed up the inside and outside. Then another cyclist pulls out, slightly in front of him sure but not too bad, and this oaf starts shouting at him. Other cyclist just ignored it, at the next light no-hands starts mouthing off again and I told him he was the "only dangerous fucker on this road" he says "I do what I want you fat fuck" and rides off no handed flipping the double bird. At that point I let him ride off to his destiny :/<

    Yeah that was me, I'm trying to perfect the no-hands thing to impress the drivers. Sorry about calling you fat, although in some countries it's a sign of wealth and status so you could interpret that as a compliment.
