    In other words, someone at Fox found the most expensive project in the city - something that ran for FOUR BLOCKS - then calculated that if every project cost this much per city block then the total cost per mile would be that insane number. It's bullshit because there isn't a single mile of bike lane anywhere in Seattle that cost even close to $12 million to build. Nevermind the fact that it's the entire street being rebuilt, not just a bike path.

    I'm sure Fox accidentally left out those details.


    $374k for streetlights?
    So maybe it isn't about bike lanes after all?

    46 lights over 4.5 blocks = 10 a block. $8,000 a light = $368,000

    It said "new" street lights. Couldn't they just move the old ones?

    Street lights usually don't deteriorate. It's fabricated metal with wires running inside connected to a bulb.

    I'm sure these new ones are solar powered to reduce carbon footprint or some shit.
    And high-intensity LEDs to bake your retinas.

    I couldn't tell you. Maybe. Who gives a shit.

    The point is the Fox News article is bullshit because there isn't a $12M bike lane. It's a bike lane added on to four blocks of new streets, sidewalks, street lamps, sewers, etc.

    Couldn't they just offer jobs for some of the homeless, by having them stand on step ladders holding flashlights? Small footprint and you help with the homeless crises.

    Get somebody like me in charge. I'll solve your problems

    Better idea incoming. Let's tie the homeless to milk cartons and then release dozens of wild cougars into the bike lanes to play with both the bikers AND the homeless. Win fucking win.
    As long as rawhide is involved, I fully endorse this plan.

    Thanos just needs to visit soon. His plan makes so much sense.

    We should tell the homeless that a better life awaits them in Mexico. Hurry before they get wise and build a wall!

    edit: Looks like we have identified one of the almost dozen bikers who displace thousands of cars creating miles of unnecessary traffic every day in Seattle.
    On other words, you fat fucks that are too fucking fat to get your fat ass on a fucking bike to get some fucking exercise while commuting to work or the store, don't like it when in shape people are in your way.

    Fuck off.

    That said, I'd much rather have separate bike lanes and not have them on roads. I say we just convert 50% of all of the streets in Seattle, to bicycle only. That way, the bikes won't be in the way of the cars and the fat fucks in the cars.

    And... that said, I only ride about 10 times a year, and only when its sunny and only on weekends. But I fully support everybody else that rides daily. They are better than me, and way better than all of you fat fucking fucks.

    Close downtown streets down and expand the areas around them.

    I'll take extra pleasure next time I flip that right plow wing out and knock a biker on his ass and hope it is @uzi
