    Just a 5 min drive from home to work this morning, 2 squirrels tried to run across my path. What the hell is wrong with them?!

    Get out of the car, chase them down, and punch them both.

    You've seen that Geico commercial haven't you? The one where the squrriels run out in front of that car, the car swerves, and you hear him wrecking off screen, and the squirrels start laughing and they high five each other :p

    Dumb squirrels... I accidentally had to drive over one the other day. It was a peaceful area with absolutely no traffic. But this squirrel was keen on practicing salsa right in the middle of the road couple of moments before I came close. Tried to swerve, but it was late!

    Jesus....who'd run over a squirrel on a damn BIKE? That is not funny that is sick.

    It's one thing to have a small creature with no concept of a car dart out into the road when it's an unavoidable miss. But too often no one even attempts to brake.

    I have a problem seeing the roadkill around here - squirrels, foxes, raccoons, etc. I have little doubt most of them could have been avoided if the pedal-to-the-metal mentality of the SUV drivers I see could be eased off a bit.

    Give the remaining wildlife in its 13% allowable greenspace a chance - slow the hell down in our tiny wooded areas!!!!! :x

    I have hit a squirrel while riding my bike. I dont think you try to hit one, thats near impossible. Im not about to lock up my wheels and go over my bars because of a squirrel.

    I get mad at people when they slam on the brakes with people behind them because a frikin RODENT runs out in front of them. I have seen people get in worse accidents by trying to avoid a small animal than what would have happened if they just hit it. Im an animal lover too, but please...its a rat with a bushy tail. I dont think anyone would be complaining if that was a rat in his wheel?

    About the only animal I might swerve for is a Deer. Even then, chances are Id get less hurt hitting a deer than swerving and hitting a car or a tree. Weigh your options...

    Oh yea...its all the SUV drivers faults. :roll:

    Bully for you. Think loss of greenspace more than "frikin RODENT" while you fill up that SUV, avoiding those pesky headlines about $48/barrel for oil while people get shot up every day in oil producing nations. Wear your bike helmet and eat three square meals a day. All will be well.

    :roll: Back atcha, Slick!
