For learning how to fix your own bike, Ann Arbor's own co-op, Common Cycle, is a fantastic resource. Open Sundays 11-3 at 416 W Huron.

Spent the morning volunteering as a mechanic for the first time.

Observations: if you get there at 11 it's pretty quiet. After 12:30 and you might have to wait.

Cool group of people there!

High on my "Annoying A2" list: pronouncing Bach elementary as "Baa"

Ann Arbor is soliciting your opinions on whether to spend money, and if so how to spend it, to become a place where "chugga chugga" is not followed by "choo choo"

School's Closed, Day 8: Crew morale dangerously low. Rations dwindling quickly. Send Shipt pls.

if you're wondering what the hands-on museum is like on a snow day, the answer is...


Went to the Washtenaw Bike Summit today. We had a good break-out session on planning fun family-friendly rides so look for that in the future, fellow bike riders with kids.

Also was nice to see City Council Members there - CMs Griswold and Nelson both showed up, Griswold stayed the whole time so major props to her.

same fucker on Reddit who tried to publicly shame me for riding my bike through a crosswalk is asking how to get out of a ticket...

for blowing a stop sign.

Wonder if I should query the DDA about setting up a micro Park in September for or just do it and see what happens.

I just went over the City of A2 parking ordinance and I don't see anywhere it requires a car to be parked in the spot.

Anyone up for Park(ing) day this year?

Don't get me wrong, I like cars. I drive a car sometimes. Some of my friends drive cars.

But cars have no place in our cities on the roads.

I should be specific - people who post photos of others because they disapprove of their parenting are the worst.

people who post photos of others on Reddit/Birdsite/FB to shame them publicly really burn my biscuits.

All you garage shop guys: don't necessarily need to put in insulation if you're planning to rely on a radiant heater. For occasional use, insulation will be poor payback and minimal effect if the space is unheated most of the time.

(Kinda like keeping a winter coat on a clothes line outside and then putting it on. It's not going to be warm.)

Also, you're making me feel like I'm not keeping up adequately...

Every time you create an account on a site it should make you look at that xkcd comic about “someone is wrong on the internet!” and check a box that says “I understand that just because someone is wrong doesn’t mean I need to correct them. Life is short and I can move on.”

why oh why did AAPS call off schools today? The roads in our neighborhood are perfect.

That's maximum lunar eclipse folks. No comparison to a solar eclipse of course but cool nonetheless.
