[Earth Touch News] This cyclist (who sounds a bit like someone you might know) is just sick and tired of people putting logs in his paa… Oh wait, that’s not a log.
As far as unfazed reactions to reptilian roadblocks go, this one ranks right up there with the Australian tour guide who ushered two crocodiles off the road with little more than the power of politeness.
Look, I know, it’s not an exciting video. The alligator doesn’t even snap at him (no doubt because he knows that bicyclists just aren’t worth the headache). Just gives him the cold shoulder and side-eyes him the whole way past. That’s fine. I would expect no less from one of mother nature’s most majestic and noble creatures.
The real story here is this idiot’s commentary. He’s just so sick of people putting logs in the middle of his bike paths! Because that’s what people do, they just run around with logs, leaving them in the way of unsuspecting bicyclists. God knows we have nothing better to do than lug a giant hunk of wood into the middle of fuck-all nowhere and leave it there to mildly inconvenience a couple of bicyclists.
Has there ever been a more clear example of how bicyclists think the world revolves around them? For a group of people who so widely consider themselves environmentalists, they have no concept of how nature works. Everything is always a giant conspiracy out to get them, whether it’s traffic laws, drug laws, right of way laws, or goddamn mother nature herself.
