Tale of two animals

On my way to work today morning, a cow started crossing the road in front of me. It looked at my car, quickly ran some time/distance calculations in its brain and decided that it wouldn't make it across the road at its current leisurely pace. It put its foot on the pedal, as it were, and got safely to the other side.

Two seconds after I finished admiring the animal's intelligence, another animal, a biped on a motorcycle this time, cut across my path from the left and proceeded to make a right turn, forcing me to brake in order to avoid hitting it.
