Retweeted by philtor@BikePortland ...since I've had to drive those curvy, narrow roads, I wouldn't want to bike them unless they were shut down to cars.@BikePortland Both have similar features. I drive around Jackson School, Jackson Quarry to get to work. Lots of bikers these days...@BikePortland a bit further up the road I did see a bike, if he had been just around the curve where I was blinded, it could have been bad.@BikePortland I drive some of those roads out there. Yesterday I came around a bend and the sun was suddenly in my eyes so I couldn't see...@BikePortland It's the blindness of the drivers I'm worried about, not myself.@BikePortland Can't imagine biking that road with all of the blind curves, no shoulder in most areas. It can be bad enough for driving.@acfoltzer this happens to me all the time.To make the Kafkaesqueness complete, the DMV has no restrooms. You gotta walk over to the mall.DEQ does not take checks. DMV only takes checks or cash. Go figure.js_of_ocaml is pretty good. Crusty syntax, but stellar asynchronous control flow, lean JS, and a pretty fast compiler. Thumbs up.
