I ride a bicycle to the station on my way to work. Yesterday the velcro on my hi-vis jacket came undone, so I was doing that up with my left hand, and I tried to change gear with my right hand, but I pulled the brake lever instead of the gear lever, the front wheel stopped, I teetered a bit, fell, and hit my knee on the ground. Comical, if it hadn't hurt.
Since I've cycled regularly, I think that this is the fifth time I've come off. I've got a metal plate in my arm from one of them, but no permanent damage from the others. I usually ride when it's early, so I may not be that alert. Only one of them happened on the way home.
Obviously I should stop to adjust things. Catching the train is less important than physical safety, and cycling one handed was a contributing factor yesterday.
Also cycling is just riskier. I've never fallen off a car, and accidentally applying a car's brakes still leaves you sitting in the car.
I did once fall off a bus, but that's a different (but equally ridiculous) story.
I posted before about what's wrong with elections. I think that I got it wrong. The real problem is the candidates (and therefore the selection process). Everyone in the world thinks it's mad to let Trump anywhere near an election, but Clinton's approval ratings are poor. So Americans will be choosing between the crazy bloke and the woman they dislike. WTF?
Less distressingly, in the last US presidential election straight people were split down the middle (if we believe the Wikipedia stats) so it was the gay, lesbian and bisexual vote that won Obama a second term.
Some software that I use always switches off the Windows option "Show window contents while dragging". That means that dragging a window just moves an outline, and the window only moves when you drop the outline. That's grim. You can switch this option in Control Panel. That's a bunch of clicks, and it'll get switched back later. Grr!
