Still not a foul. Again, having refereed for a long time, thats still a poor decision.

I hope you don't ref any of my games if you still think that's not a foul.

This wasnt the finest moment in World Cup refereeing:

It would've been really cool to see the Greeks just pass it to the keeper and acknowledge the referee f*ck up. That's easy for me say from my behind my computer though.

I don't like the Greek team but the ref totally got the call right. It was a penalty shot.

Look at this angle.

cycling in the us from a dutch perspective

Amsterdam had huge car traffic issues in the 60s and 70s and got to the cycle friendly state it is now by actively planning and favouring cycling and public transport. North American cities could do this through densification and gentrification.

There are apps for smart phones that turns your phone into a dash cam.

Google apps.

dashboard cameras

…., and glad to see those folks stopping and running to help. Hope folks in roll over were ok.

From The Province today.
Police called it a very minor accident, yeah right.

Video of an apparently horrific crash Monday in Langley, captured by a car dashboard camera and posted on YouTube, in fact shows “a very minor” accident, police say.
Although the small sedan flipped after going onto the shoulder of Highway 1 west of 232nd Street to avoid a cube van that turned into the same lane, Cpl. Robert McDonald of Lower Mainland Traffic Services said there were only minor injuries.

The female driver from Surrey and the two minors who were in the sedan were released from hospital shortly afterward.

The Abbotsford driver of the truck was issued a $109 violation ticket at the scene for an unsafe lane change.
Considering the high-speed carnage that occurs regularly on B.C.’s streets and highways, the Monday accident, which didn’t involve any contact between the vehicles and resulted in no significant injuries, was minor — except to those involved.
“It probably looks a lot worse than it was,” said McDonald.
But that wasn’t the reaction from Langley’s Andy Zbisko, who was the passenger in the Mercedes driven by his girlfriend, Brittany Bandura, that was following the sedan as it moved briskly through traffic at around 2:45 p.m.
“Oh, my God! Oh, my God!” Zbisko is hear to exclaim as the accident explodes in front of him.
Zbisko, who called the accident “scary stuff,” has been using an inexpensive dash cam for several years for insurance purposes.
His video shows that the sedan passed in the right lane to get past a slowermoving white truck in the left lane. But the truck moved into the right lane and the sedan swerved onto the shoulder to avoid it before flipping. Other drivers pulled over to help.
McDonald isn’t surprised by what happened.
“Any time you have higher speed on the road and people try to move fast, there’s always potential for danger,” he said. “High speed on the highway and you make a sudden move and hit the shoulder — loose gravel — it’s really easy to lose control of the vehicle.”
Mc Donald said it’s critical to keep a “fair distance” between your vehicle and other vehicles to ensure there’s time to react safely.
