    i·ron·ic/īˈränik/
    Adjective:

    1) Using or characterized by irony.
    2) Happening in the opposite way to what is expected, thus typically causing wry amusement.
    if you twist it that way its sort of ironic, though no one else sees it that way so its really not. it happened pretty much the way everyone would expect.

    ah, but it was ironic to me, because i was the one there, and i was the one with the expectation. it is perfect use of the word, you're just too prideful to admit it because you wanted to bash my education. which is fine, but don't get all pissy if i call you on it.

    i work from home. i do 3d animation and architectural renders. my shift keys are set to perform script operations. since i work from home, i only turn it off while i'm writing emails and whatnot, but generally i leave the program running because i'm usually working on something in the background, and i don't feel as though capitalization on a forum is mandatory.

    You could say it was your fault, that you made a mistake and 'dodged a bullet' by reacting quickly and that you've learnt something from the experience. You claim to have learnt something by going to Uni. Now see if you can continue to learn and grow from the experiences life throws at you.
    It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required.

    i learned that even though somebody fathers a child, they may not care about them until somebody reminds them that their children are fragile. and then they will yell at you to compensate for their own shortcomings. i also learned that i'm pretty responsive in my old age (30), and that i should keep up with what i have been doing.

    Doesn't matter the kid could have been an adult.

    No you should not keep up doing what you are doing it is wrong.

    bin it or lock it. it's spiraled out of control for long enough now...

    the first five posts were original, the subsequent four hundred or so is nothing but regurgitation...

    With that nugget, I paraphrase Mr. Burgundy's synopsis of this thread:

    Ron Burgundy: This thread really got out of hand fast. I mean this really escalated quickly. ou2, did you bunny hop a kid with your mountain bike?

    ou2: yeah, there was a girlfriend and a clueless dad and I bunny hopped a kid with my mountain bike.

    Burgundy: Yeah, I heard that. ou2 bunny hopped a kid.

    ou2: yeah, I bunny hopped a kid.

    Burgundy: ou2, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should probably avoid posting about it on MTBR or find a safe house because you're probably wanted for violation of trail ethics.

    Well if you could combine this thread with the Jeep bike thread it might be worth keeping around strictly for entertainment purposes. Say the OP was riding a Jeep bike with the wrong rear end and wrong sized wheels when he purportedly bunny hopped the innocent tyke.

    Otherwise I'd sh!tcan this thread and take away the platform for the OP to drivel on about how right and smart he is ad nauseum.

    the kid could have been a donkey.. or a garden gnome. i don't care, the difference is nobody is supposed to be caring for the donkey or garden gnome. it is nobody's responsibility to make sure that the donkey or garden gnome aren't in a section of down hill trail that can be dangerous for them. the father though, yes.. he was there. that was his job. he failed at it.

    Even after 425 posts, ou2 refuses to accept any input, or advice, and STILL believes he was right in riding too fast for conditions, and that all other users should get outta his way.

    911 reports a call from lost g/f, to report a well-educated, and certifiably insane azzhole running amok on local trails..

    CHUM - this horse has been bunny-hopped beyond death.

    i've only posted in response to people, and a majority of the posts were specifically correcting people who misread the facts, and made an opinion based on them. since people refuse to read, and just assume that they understand the situation, they had to be guided and spoon fed the actual events so that they could form an opinion. even though their opinions were ultimately against me, they at least formed it based on actual knowledge of the event, as opposed to just making **** up because they misunderstood.

    Wow, I mean seriously, wow.

    The presence of the father in this scenario is irrelevant.

    Likewise the age of the downed rider.

    You took a blind corner at a speed too high to stop in time to hit a fallen rider on the trail.

    You were lucky/skillful enough to avoid a collision.

    If there had been a collision you would now be liable for costs.

    It is very very simple.

    We all make mistakes, now own yours.

    so a father who puts a child under 5 years old on a bike that just had its training wheels removed, on a down hill section of trail where the child is falling all over the place is doing his job as a parent? and there's absolutely no chance in hell that this guy made an erroneous judgement call by bringing the child there, and then ignoring them as they flopped around on the trail, to the point that they almost get run over? you're right. totally my fault.
