Bike Lanes: love 'em, hate 'em, funny?

So do you use bike lanes?  Do you think they make the roads safer for everyone?  What if a bicyclist has to make a left turn – can you be outside of a bike lane and still ride legal?

Has made a video about obstructions in bike lanes in New York City.  It’s kinda funny, kinda not.

How do plants know which way is up or down?

If plants start from seed underground, then how do they know which way is up or down?  Do they sense gravity?  What would happen in space?  This great article from NPR discusses this along with why there truly are rocks in your head.
