    I can just about understand the twisted logic behind all the insta life-faking that people do, but selfie venues don't seem to serve any function other than raw narcissism.

    I'm always baffled by drivers' accounts of cyclist altercations being so terrifying. You're in a big metal box. If you were genuinely scared you wouldn't get out. It always smells to me of "I felt like a big man behind the wheel, but when I got out my dick suddenly shrank".

    Anyway, both parties have managed to come away looking like proper knobs. Two thumbs up guys.

    I always find these moments bittersweet. You get a vision of what London could be like without all the cars but of course it will never happen.

    Ducking under police tape feels pretty cool though.

    Vine's comparison with the trenches is rather odd, seeing as WW1 trench warfare famously caused a huge amount of psychological damage, which often went untreated due to the callous and outdated attitude of senior officers.

    Jazz hands thing is pretty ridiculous though.

    Anyone got a good online source for good quality, long, compressionless brake cables? The Jagwire extra long cables I used previously don't seem to exist any more.

    Don't have a clue who this Bevan chap is. You see I've just picked an arbitrary middle ground, rather than seeking to understand various political views and deciding for myself where I stand. Thanks for your input though. Must rush off. I've got to get my Superdry jacket on and drive my Nissan Quashquai to a suburban BBQ.

    Pulled a 1.5 inch wood screw out of my rear tyre this morning. Spun the wheel and it resealed straight away. Two thumbs up for Schwalbe Marathon Supreme + Stans.

    I meant sensible behaviour, not sensible ideas. Coming to a conclusion about whether the idea is a good one is the whole point of having a debate. And of course everyone gets to come to their own conclusion.

    Quite possibly. The use of "nudging" to edge the centre ground to the right is a worrying tactic. I'm not sure shit memes are the answer though ;)
