Bike Safe: Use Hand Signals

Even though bikes these days are becoming more and more high-tech and come with cool gadgets and gears, they still aren’t equipped with turning signals and brake lights like cars. So, besides always wearing a helmet, it’s important you know the right hand signals for turning left and right, and for stopping, before you hop on your bike to go for a ride.
Turn Left

To signal that you are going to make a left-hand turn on your bike, all you have to do is stick your left arm straight out, parallel to the ground.

Turn Right

The hand signal for turning right is a tiny bit trickier than the left-turn signal – but it’s not that complicated. Stick the upper part of your left arm straight out beside you, with your elbow bent at a right angle and your forearm (the part or your arm between your elbow and your wrist) vertical to the ground. Your hand is pointing straight up toward the sky. Basically, your left arm looks like the letter L.

Slow or Stop

Let anyone who may be behind you know you’re about to slow down or stop/hit the brakes by placing your upper left arm parallel to the ground and your forearm down toward the ground. Basically, it is the opposite of the right-turn signal.

Wow. The mods here need to see this. This is the most  overwhelmingly extreme thread I've ever seen. This is serious and you should send the message to everyone in the world and soon you will wake up the next day being a milionare because everyone is so sorry for you. This can't be a troll post.

Its my best friends birthday party on Friday and I still don't know what to get her. She's turning 12 and she loves: guardians of the galaxy and Shopping at Newlook. she wears jewellery quite likes hair and beauty products and enjoys watching movies, going to music concerts ( she likes Taylor Swift) and apple products. I'd rather not use gift cards because they're like the lazy option out and she's my Best friend but if you can think of a great brand for her then ok.
