So yeah. Got hit by a car. Doesn't seem to be any major injuries, just scrapes and bruises. Not pressing charges (if I even can - yes, it was my right of way, see below), just because I feel that they shouldn't have to pay because they made a mistake. I could make them homeless for all I know, and I have no hospital bills, so y'know.

Anyway, here's a diagram I excellently shooped.

I was on the sidewalk on the bottom right. The pedestrian crossing light...thing, don't know what to call it was coincidentally on because of some passer-bys, and it had just started. It was wet and raining, so neither of our brakes would have worked well, and I was expecting him to stop, but I kept going, and got hit where I drew the circle. He was planning on turning right (up on the diagram). I got knocked off my bike, suffered some scrapes and bruises.

In other news, someone seems to be spreading sexy images of me.

Creepy.

Also, my retirement plan is to become a baker.

Threaten, then settle out of court and get a grand or something. Not exactly a figure that would make somebody homeless.

If they're in my position, yeah. It would.

They have a car, you have a bike.

Different positions (unless you ride a bike to be ECO-FRIENDLY)

edit: did they at least offer you a ride home?

We're not necessarily in different financial brackets - it wasn't exactly a fancy car, and I'm sure that their rent is going to be more than mine - mine is very cheap, especially considering utilities are included.

And no, I don't ride to be eco-friendly, I'm just a really really bad driver.

Did they stop or keep going?

Well, if they kept going, I think that I would have serious injuries...I was in front of them...

And since I forgot to answer above, and it relates here, yeah, I was offered a ride home - I walked it off, though, and after a few minutes I got back on my bike (although my left knee hurts to pedal xD)

Perhaps you should consider seeing a doctor... in case your spine is out of whack.

I am not sure how much doctors in the US cost... but if you can get it for free, I would certainly go.

Well, yeah, in Northern Virginia, the busy streets are never...not busy. It's not like I was knocked a yard away, just a few feet. Nothing huge.

Spines are for pussies. Seriously, though, I'm not hurt - I landed mostly on my knee / wrist / helmet, and I have a big water bag covering my back, so y'know.

Aww, man. That's totally not cool. I do hope you're all right.

No, I don't think you should press charges. If it was the fault of the driver, the sheer shock and potential guilt of hitting someone ought to be more than enough to straighten them out for a while.

It's enormous.
(But I'm very flexible. I was a dancer and gymnast until puberty! Then I suddenly had such big T&A that I couldn't do cartwheels or uneven bars without injuries... or my dad stopped paying for lessons... )

I'm glad you're feeling okay, Monkat.

But somebody hit you with their car....You should press charges. But maybe I'm just an asshole like that.

If somebody hit me with a car you can be sure I would press charges, but that's just me.

Glad you're not hurt though!

EDIT:

This made my night

Laughing and crying because I feel so old watching that...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_Got_Back

I was in third grade when that song was popular, but I wasn't really allowed to listen to the hip hop station. The first time I heard that song, the boy I had a crush on was "rapping" it at the after school day care. It was so obscene to me and it made me think he was a pervert and also, somehow, cuter. I still remember his full name too, surprises me.

I didn't hear the whole song or see the video until ~1995 or the end of 6th grade when our family got cable TV.
