"[email protected]!!sy" falsetto when I need it. *Every bike I get on has a horn and a
siren! *I even get tough West Philadelphia jaywalkers out of my way!


* Take the same attitude to tough drivers! *Look them in the eye, make
them know you're there! *99.8% of them will take care to not hit you, and
you can evade the other .2% with suitable wariness.

Eye contact? Not when I'm wearing sunglasses and they got tinted
windows. You take the plunge and face the bull. Spaniards say, "Ole!"


* I don't wear sunglasses, unless they are bright light yellow ones for
blocking UV and nearly-UV wavelengths. *I make the drivers see my eyes.



When they want to ignore you they just avoid your eyes. They even
practice it at point blank.
