Newsflash stupid people (rant)
it's you!
kohaku

First of all, I jog and I run.  5-7 days a week.  I jog about 4-6 miles a day.  It's summer so i tend to run when the sun isn't shining on my face as I don't do too well in the sun.  So I might run at 4am or 8pm.  Where is the rant might you ask?

THE GOD DAMN HONKING

I don't know where people get the idea that it is a good idea to spam their car honks when they pass by a runner.  Is it amusing because I don't really see the fun in it all.  On an average run I get about 10 people honking.  Most of those people I don't know.  Then I have the morons who stop and ask me if I want a ride home.  Listen people, if you are jogging, you are trying to exercise.  If I want a ride, I will stick out my hitch hiker finger.  Then I have people who swirve by me and try to start a conversation while i try to run.  Listen people, I don't need the company.  if you need company, there are amny places on the internet for those.  My nano ipod and i get along fine without you.  Not to mention all of the items above make me jump a mile.  I feel my life has shortened from the constant fright.  So the next time you see a runner, you mine your own damn business and refrain yourself from honking.  It is not a good way to acknowledge people and i dont' like stupid surprises!

You need to move to a bigger city. Here, people and cars don't pay attention to the runners and the walkers no matter how attractive they may look, unless the runners or the walkers use a car lane or are naked. People mind their own business. That's a perk of big cities -- people are mostly isolated and left alone, even though there are way too many people everywhere. Some people may think it's too sterile. But I don't see anything wrong with it.

yea but over there
they pay so little attention they will hit you
so i'm not sure your alternative is any better

Well... Between being hit on and risking being hit, don't you think the latter is infinitely more preferable? I do. mmhmm.
