Submitted by: GenNutcase8D 7 years ago Misc

A great gesture, sure, but does anyone else notice who these Denmark cops are ignoring?

Oh WOMEN! That`s a relief, though he meant muslims, but you don`t see many of them on bicycles for some reason.

I wonder how many people saw this, went and got their bike and purposefully left their helmet, so they cold get a nice, new helmet from the cops? :-P
Cute video though.

oooh big scary moderators! big davy is watching you. sorry guy, keep in mind you`re policing open forums, looking to avenge whatever bully ruined your life hunting for trolls and lolcats. on the internet.

appreciate the lack of spam, but threatening with a ban is as lame as dishing moldy gender-based jokes. there`s millions of other refURL sites out there.

Teehee, "Rise of the Forum Members".

I dunno why, but I just imagine that if IAB were a trilogy, this could be one of the stories.

BTW, I`m totally on the side of the mods here, `cause I`ve been yelled at by them before for commenting (in an innocent, playful way) on something being a repost (iirc). I dare not tempt their ire again. I, personally, think the mods are great.

Alright, that was nice.

The helmets were pretty cool looking too. I normally don`t like the looks of bike helmets.

Umm kinda missed all the argument but hey those police were awesome. I agree that they probably couldn`t hug women becuase of laws and being sued. Why aren`t our police people like this. The helmets looked decent.

To be fair, I was being a grammar nazi specifically back at a user who made a comment that women should not be let out the kitchen in the first place. Sure it was a joke, but it causes offence to a good 50% of the user base, which was why I called him out as a twat. It wasn`t a random insult.

Mani-Jac - You`re wrong.

There is a term I heard once about my boss. "When your boss is right, he`s right. And when he is wrong, he`s right."

They have more power than you, and free will to use it. Just because you should be able to tell everyone when they`re wrong, doesn`t mean you can. Life isn`t that easy.

Disclaimer: I`m in a really crappy mood. I spent $20 on a lovely cake just for me, which fell on the floor and splattered all over the place.
Disregard any insults. I currently hate everything and everyone.

Meh, why don`t the cops just cut the crap and shoot the cyclists.
They`re likely to leave the helmet at home, then go flip on a curve, break their necks, and be pushed around in a wheelchair while having an I.Q. of 35 for the rest of their lives.
I`d take death over that.

Answer 1. Mods can delete comments, warn, temp ban or perm ban users by name and IP address, look up user history, approve or deny submissions, and quite a few other things that only we know about. The site and users are continually monitored and discussed on a mod blog which makes an Open Forum look like a tame gradeschool reader.

Answer 2. Mods can stop time, delete the internetz, sleep with your mom, eat live worms without barfing, travel to Zarquon Six by blinking their eyes, drink English beer, and drive faster than the speed limit without being booked.

Believe whichever one you want.

Ah, now I didn`t say mods had the right to call anyone a twat either... was just making an observation. Whether right or wrong, mods have powers such that even I wouldn`t p one off. As Bertram Russell said, life is just a competition to become the criminal rather than the victim.

The thing i love most about this site is every topic gets discussed, and nobody ever says things like " god get a life" or " you have too much time on your hands" because the whole point is we`re bored.

so we talk about britneys tampon string and call eachother "twats" instead!

Also @ all these people getting upset over people calling eachother "twats"....... it`s the internet; words are meaningless in textual form because there is no true charge to them. From what I type right now , you don`t know how I`m feeling... I could be sad , happy , indifferent , etc.

People think because they are mods that they are god-like... true mods have server hardware right in front of em. It`s fairly easy to host sites such as this... T1 line , lots of blade setups , and Invision Powerboard & some "MSQL" & Linux knowledge and away you go :).

Dude who used to be my friend`s dad is a mod of some porn online Redlight Center deal... means nothing to me except that he`s a stooge for thinking he has power :).

I believe I understand what everyone is getting at... if my grammar is slightly off ( spelling ) it`s because I`m tired. The whole idea behind this can be taken bad in the way of being thought of "giving helmet". Giving Helmet = giving lamp = giving head. Kinda odd ... most the police in Euro-countries pull you over by literally taking a giant CIRCLE thing on the end of a wooden stick/handle and put it out in front of your car to signal you to STOP and be pulled over o_O

...really? Nobody else thinks that perhaps, all of the `attractive` women were just wearing bike helmets?

Or that that video only showed some and they just happened to be mostly men?

Really... I didn`t even notice the lack of girls until it was pointed out..

why...? Ehh whatever.

I totally want to move to denmark now though.

@Davymid: "the vernacular `there`"? They`re all vernacular. Do you even know what that means? Also, "they`re" is neither singular nor possessive. It`s "they" (plural) + BE (are), and a contraction of those. Try not to be a twat.

actually in America we have sovereign states that have their own helmet laws. depending on the state you COULD get a ticket.

In America, if you get caught not wearing a helmet by the police, you get a ticket and possible beating.

In Europe, you get a free helmet and a hug.

It`s that kind of wackiness (and an imported husband) that made me move here. Though I still find it funny and hard to grasp at times.

Perhaps they`re ignoring women because they have helmet made specialy for men or something... I bet there`s another squad a little bit farther handing out pink helmet.

Hate to be a c*nt, but you meant "they`re", not "there". It`s a contraction of the singular possessive, from the stem "they are", and is very different from the vernacular "there".

Try not to be a twat.

If they didn`t want to get slapped with sexual harassment they could have brought out a woman police officer, or if there weren`t any available they could have just given the helmet WITHOUT the hug.

And I didn`t see any women hugged, only feminine-looking men.

Two things:

1) Like Lando said, they probably didn`t stop the attractive women to avoid some sort of sexual harassment crap. Think about it. A Random cop stops a young, attractive woman on a bike, hugs her, and helps her put on a free new helmet. sounds like something a pervert would do, really... At least, an American pervert...

2) I honestly thought this was going to be racist. Then I remembered... It`s f*cking Denmark, there wouldn`t BE any black people.

landogriffin, everyone hates to be sexually harrassed. they didn`t stop any black people. there were some women they didn`t stop, but they weren`t on bikes. i saw them stop a woman on a bike though. and i didnt see any black people on bikes, so that could be why there weren`t any in the vid. this is nice of those cops and i dont understand why any of you saw anything wrong with it.

You mean how they only hug men and unattractive women, but do not stop the attractive women? Maybe because it would be considered sexual harassment to touch a pretty woman but ugly women don`t care?
