Not sure about the "wrong" side of the road.
ISTR reading that more people drive on the left than on the right
(think UK, Japan, Aus, NZ, SA, India etc)
And did you know that French trains run on the left?

If they don't do it in Murca, it's wrong. And that, my little canine

The Tour will pass on the only road in France where people drive on
the left.

British Dumbasses,

Your defence of left-hand driving by majority rule appears
to be incorrect.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right-_and_left-hand_traffic

says that "Though originally most traffic drove on the left worldwide,
[3]
today about 66.1% of the world's people live in right-hand traffic
countries
and 33.9% in left-hand traffic countries. About 72% of the world's
total
road distance carries traffic on the right, and 28% on the left.[4]"

India is large, but China is larger. Arguably neither of these
countries should be weighted by its population since I expect
their per-capita car ownership is lower. Maybe we care about
the number of cars in right- and left-drive countries, not the
number of people or miles of road. Still, it probably comes
out to similar proportions: the UK has many cars, but Germany
has more, und so weiter.

Trains are another issue, it's not entirely uniform within a country.
I've taken trains between countries that nominally switch sides
(like Germany-Austria-Italy) but can't recall how they dealt with it.

I liked this quote from that august organisation the UCI.
"However the UCI is confident that his team will take the necessary steps to
enable the Tour de France to continue in serenity"
I wonder how serene the riders who enjoyed intimate contact with the French
scenery are feeling after their rest day.

Now we can look forward to several days of Voeckler jersey-defense

Too bad there is no jersey for Mime of the Peloton.

He did a great job staying upright when Flecha smacked into him. A
very good rider, too bad he does that thing.

Did you see how he outran the Peleton after that big crash? Kloden
was probably the only guy keeping up with his pace at that point.
After Voekler's amazing surge, Hushovd just gave up and started
lagging the peleton.

http://groups.google.com/group/alt.mindcontrol/msg/9329d2af1c6e5f8b?h...

Your psychopathic governments programmed your brains to think every one who
accuses the government of tortures is "delusional".

MKULTRA and COINTELPRO were never terminated. They merely became SECRET
TORTURES.

What is MKULTRA?

What is COINTELPRO
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cointelpro

Stop watching those stupid fucking reality shows Kardashians, Jon and Kate,
Jersey Shore and the rest of the dumb american shit and use that fucking
time to google and youtube for MKULTRA and COINTELPRO.........

Because he's a rubbish commentator? He has done a lot of good work
for cycling in the UK in other capacities but commentating is not one
of them. I got fed up with watching when he missed just about every
significant move. At least Dave Duffild was waxing lyrical about
something interesting like the local wine when he missed stuff.
Liggett is so far up the yanks' arses that he's usually prattling on
about somebody's granny in Montana getting up early specially to watch
the race. Why can't he just be British?!

Florian Rousseau was interviewed on French TV yesterday, and he was
talking about the great result the English had at the 2008 Olympics.
That insult should get them fired up for 2012.

That was the one that was also called Alpha 1999 if I recall correctly.
In retrospect they were extremely optimistic about mans return to the
moon back in the eighties.

The show you're referring to was Space 1999. I personally consider
that program to be the reason we don't have hot dog stands and hot
purple-haired babes on the moon right now. A spinoff show is not
supposed to be neutered. They took the sexiness and mesh shirts out
of the show and dropped in Barbara Bain?!

As some professor or other said, "If male youth studied physics and
math with the intensity and exuberance with which they study the
female bosom, we'd be running hot dog stands on the Moon by now."

Obviously the Tour officials have decided to make the race more like
our morning commutes.

Dumbass, Here's the video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvnLDpgmT6U

The car had room to get closer to the tree. The driver was on the
side where the tree was so he could have cut it closer to the tree.

The driver was going too fast and not thinking ahead defensively. He
seemed to have trouble judging how close he was to the riders.

Makes you wonder if the driver was use to driving a car with the
steering wheel on the right.

Where there's a will, there's a way. Inspiring guy. Doesn't look
like a tough guy, but he most fucking obviously is. And a classy
guy. I'm his new fanboi.

Just been watching him slipstream a team car after a wheel change. I swear his
wheel was actually touching the fender/bumper of the car sometimes.
