“Someone Stole My Bike” is a new website that documents the stories of people who have had their bikes stolen. The short interviews — most are less than a minute long — are quite entertaining in a sort of “rubber-necking” kind of way.

It’s a nice site – the personal touch speaks volumes.
I’ve been half-heartedly trying to get a secondary blog going – http://www.lockyourbike.co.uk, which is along similar-ish lines. But with less video, and more emphasis on the what / how. I think maybe “someone stole my bike” has a LOT more mileage in it as a resource of cautionary tales!
[...] Someone Stole My Bike [...]
I remember coming home really late one night when I lived in Oakland and seeing this (apparently) intoxicated man kicking the side view mirror off a newer car parked on the street. I said, “Hey man, what you doing?”
He said, “I’m breaking this car, stupid!”
“That might not be such a good idea, why are you doing that?” I asked.
“Because somebody stole my bike!” At some point he started kicking the door of the car.
I decided to get clear of him but said, “That’s a bummer…”
He kept stomping and shouted, “Yeah, especially since I only stole it myself last week.”
I’m pretty sure the car wasn’t his.
