    OK who was this part 3

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...REL-35MPH.html

    Cyclist, 58, is thrown over his handlebars and left with a fractured cheek and memory loss after hitting a SQUIRREL at 35MPH (and it's not a happy ending for the rodent either)
    • Tim Egerton, 58, hit the squirrel whilst cycling in Oakworth, West Yorkshire
    • He was rushed to hospital where a titanium plate was placed in his broken cheek
    • The cycling enthusiast was travelling 30 to 35mph on impact, killing the squirrel
    Welcome to the Squirrel Elimination front!

    Similar happened to a friend of mine, he lost an eye. The actual cause is disc brakes on a bicycle. If you brake hard on the front wheel; over you go.
    It is safer to have disc brakes on the rear and rim brakes on the front.

            sometimes I am glad to be too lazy to do any regular sports...

            I run sometimes, the worst that could happen to you is to slip on dog poo or get stabbed because London.

              When I lived in Beckenham and commuted to Hammersmith I used to take a short cut through Battersea Park - squirrels in there are blinkin suicidal ..... they'd just stay in front of you and spin around like a whirling dervish before shooting off in one direction at the last moment. Had a few close calls, but thankfully never hit one.

              I also rarely travel at 35 mph .... 50 kph (30 mph) is where I'm comfy, any faster and cars become an issue as I'm going as fast/faster than them!
              I am what I drink, and I'm a bitter man

                Nah you can get attacked by foxes, squirrels or rats for food.

                Or get mugged by someone on an e-scooter for your mobile.

                  Or trip over your shoelaces and end up in the river

                    For the later I usually run around an artificial lake, ex docks, so quite deep.
                    There is a portion that is one way and I think as well that poses that exact risk.

                    The joke that I make with my friend about it is that, if I were to be mugged, the person attempting it, statistically is very likely to not know how to swim, so I will jump in the lake.

                    Not very politically correct, I know but statistically accurate.

                    with weather like this I am not sure I would mind.
