"If they're getting valuable enough stuff from you, at least the organized crime folks have an incentive to issue regular updates to keep the appliance working after the manufacturer discontinues support."

Constantly on edge, always keeping an eye out, trying to take in all the peripheral info as you go?
Anytime you appear in the media, they will focus on what you were wearing rather than what you were doing.

And if you try to claim any safe space at all you get accused of “car hating”

And if you politely challenge the status quo you get called militant.

Whenever you complain about drivers, someone will say "not all drivers".

Haha I frikken love making sweeping generalisations about car drivers and how much they're in everyone else's way.

A friend of mine put it as “cycling is probably the only time a middle-class white guy will experience operating in a system designed for the ease, comfort and safety of someone else.”

Also: cardrivers often tell you you're doing it wrong.

Also: people shout shit at me in the street when I'm cycling.

And the mix of disregard and patronising-ness is often rooted in "Well you're smaller! a softer target! not as physically capable... your very presence will distract people because they'll expect you to be unpredictable and following different rules..."

And if you’re a minority what are you doing on our roads anyway?

Plus: shaving our legs

Sleight-of-hand artist Apollo Robbins is so stealthy that he once started a conversation with Jimmy Carter’s Secret Service agents and had everything out of their pockets within minutes. They were completely unaware that he’d acquired their badges, watches, Carter’s itinerary, and the keys to his motorcade. Source Source 2

Via The New Yorker:

“In more than a decade as a full-time entertainer, Robbins has taken (and returned) a lot of stuff, including items from well-known figures in the worlds of entertainment (Jennifer Garner, actress: engagement ring); sports (Charles Barkley, former N.B.A. star: wad of cash); and business (Ace Greenberg, former chairman of Bear Stearns: Patek Philippe watch).

He is probably best known for an encounter with Jimmy Carter’s Secret Service detail in 2001. While Carter was at dinner, Robbins struck up a conversation with several of his Secret Service men. Within a few minutes, he had emptied the agents’ pockets of pretty much everything but their guns.

Robbins brandished a copy of Carter’s itinerary, and when an agent snatched it back he said, “You don’t have the authorization to see that!” When the agent felt for his badge, Robbins produced it and handed it back. Then he turned to the head of the detail and handed him his watch, his badge, and the keys to the Carter motorcade.”


this is the guy who they used as a consultant on Leverage, by the way, and was Parker’s counterpart in the Two Live Crew Job

I think this is the same guy who had the beautiful story with Penn Jillette. Jillette was asserting that the guy wasn’t all that great, so Robbins said “okay, draw me a circle on this piece of paper”, and when Jillette tried, he found his pen doesn’t work. Robbins was waving the cartridge for it at him.

Really high-level rogues be like…
