Cyclists on the footpath and pressing the bell behind you so you'll move out of the way!Darn it!You should be on the road
Not in this country... We have shared pedestrian/cycle paths (with rules, often marked, about who goes on which side of the path) alongside many roads. So dinging the bell to alert a pedestrian that they're obstructing the cycle lane is quite acceptable. And it's much safer than cycling on the road.

OTOH, on our local cycle path to the next town there're often parties of pensioners strolling along who jump out of their SKINS if the hear a bike bell. They spin round, see us and clutch each other in a panic as if we're the cavalry about to cut them down.

As Alexander Armstrong says to EVERY contestant on Pointless when discussing their hobbies/jobs, "That sounds like fun".

Man drives car through John Cougar Mellencamp's front gates to arrest him for "supporting the government":
Mellencamp's troubles

Spoiler: Mr Mellencamp does not support the government. I expect someone has a red face today!

Look, I don't want to get into political debate, but you simply have to see this video. It would help if you knew that The God Emperor of Mankind is a character in the Warhammer 40,000K (Games Workshop) game world and that some people have jokingly referred to Donald Trump by this title... and then some Italians went too far and made a five-storey-high animatronic puppet of Trump in power armour with a 'Twitter Power Sword', an escort of camply dancing eagle centurions and a heavy metal soundtrack.

When memes become reality!


THIS IS NOT A POST DESIGNED TO SPARK A POLITICAL CONVERSATION.

NO OPINION FOR OR AGAINST DONALD TRUMP OR ANY
POLITICAL PARTY OR POLICY IS BEING MADE.
