Impressions of Last Night

One of the worst types of right-hook IMO
4 Replies

https://youtu.be/7QThSsanu_cTo me, this is one of the worst types of right-hook: no signal, at speed without braking, from the middle of the lane. A less…Continue

"Why do people going to church get a pass when others don't from Monday-Saturday. It seems problematic that the state is giving special privileges to members of certain religions."

"Oh I get what you're saying. So you have lake/wall/basin/berm with culvert."

Tooscrapps replied to JeffB's discussion Northerly Island path collapse
"I like how the new Fullerton bump channels the waves right towards the ped path at the south base. I know we're in a period of high water, but I can't believe they didn't extend the rock breaks to that portion. "

Tooscrapps replied to JeffB's discussion Northerly Island path collapse
"I'm having trouble seeing how a culvert would prevent the constant pounding of waves. This the damage isn't from water trying to find a way into the lagoon, but just the nature of the lake and its swells."

"Many have told you and showed you examples of how you were wrong and you refuse to accept it. Most people lock them flush with just one lock. If they want two to deter or slow down a thief, that is their right. And while maybe someone locking to…"
