Point taken, but there is plenty of redneck shit here in Michigan. My freshman roommate from Lake Orion, for example.

...are less seafood, and more pondfood/ditchfood/swampfood. Occasionally streamfood, but in any case the ones that are harvested commercially and that you would eat aren't cultivated in saltwater.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Well,||
Kudos then to the Rutgers band for having some perspective and trying to salvage something from the day. Things are different in NJ. Where Michigan can have a nevergiveupthosewhostaywillbechampions attitude and reasonably expect one day it will work out for us, for Rutgers that's just worthless self-delusion.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Dude.||
You are more likely to be killed by a deer in Michigan than an earthquake in California. I would stop worrying about your house and start worrying about the ruminant in the woodlot that wants to have you murdered.

They scooted it a few feet to the north to accommodate sewer improvements on Stadium.

|4 weeks 5 days ago||Stated more accurately...||
Cars driving too fast on roads occupied by bicycles, pedestrians or other cars legally using the roadway is unsafe, reckless, and selfish.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Nope.||
Although I agree with your strategy on lane position, courts in Michigan and elsewhere have ruled that the middle of the lane may be "as far to the right as is practicable". It possible, but not safe, nor practicable, to hug the shoulder and encourage a vehicle to pass up safely in the same lane as is occupied by the bicycle. The vehicle code's avoidance of the word possible is intentional and meaningful. In Michigan and California, a bicycle in the middle of the lane to prevent an unsafe, in-lane pass by another vehicle is not in violation of the "impeding traffic" section of the code. This isn't true in certain states (like Idaho) where Delay of Five Vehicles is illegal irrespective of whether the bike or car has the right to be in the lane - if there are five vehicles behind you, you are required to pull over and let them pass when it is safe to do so.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Not true.||
A court can, and has suspended a dangerous cyclists privilege to use the road, and they don't do it by suspending your bicycle license, which is required in some municipalities just in order to combat bike theft. But it's worth pointing out that Los Angeles abandoned its bicycle registration program because it cost too much to run and was deemed to have no benefit except as a pretense for stop and search.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Why?||
Because hit and runs are an enormous issue with cyclists? Because high speed chases where bicycles elude police cars are so common? Because although road construction and maintenance is largely funded by property and sales taxes, cyclists should pay even more to subsidize the damage to roads caused by cars?
Yeah, not really any of those. Licensing and registration are requirements for cars for specific reasons, not because anyone that uses the public way in any manner needs to be licensed. You will note that we do not license and register pedestrians for all of the same reasons.

...riding a bicycle on a sidewalk is legal in Santa Monica and the City of Los Angeles, but illegal in Beverly Hills. It varies here on a city by city basis, which was also my experience living in the NE.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Nope.||
The mere act of "riding as far to the right as practicable" per MCV 257.660a which can in fact be the middle of the lane in cases where the lane isn't large enough for a car to overtake a bicycle safely is not illegal, nor is any slowing of vehicles behind the bicycle.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||There are some exceptions...||
...but more often than not, you are correct.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Exactly.||
I don't like taking the lane, but when the alternative is creating an insufficient space between me and incoming traffic that someone with a buckeye bumper sticker will try and squeeze through putting me in the ditch... we'll, I'm going to go ahead and take the lane.

One is trading the temporary suffering of transitioning to independent adulthood for more permanent aches pains that are the inevitable result of playing football. I'm sure he will make the best decision for him.

...allows participation from students enrolled in a university without any affiliation to that university'a team, or amateurs not going to school at all. This obviously doesn't apply to the case in the OP's query, but it's common for high caliber athletes at schools with poor programs to opt out of running for the team, maintain their own coach, and compete as unattached.
