    I have so gotten used to having someone scream out some incoherent form of English (I think it's English), that I have begun to make a game of trying to decipher what it was they actually said, or was trying to say, due to their severe speech impediment.
    I must get something yelled at me at least once every two days or even everyday, that this is the only way I can deal with it, without getting disconcerted about commuting in general. It always seems to happen when I get to the city. (What is up with the people in these cities?)

    Todays Babble came from some teenagers in an old car. The one kid stuck his head out the window and yelled something... ""Blah Blah Blah, Candy Canes, blah blah blah, Little Puppies, blah blah blah...."

    Ok, so it has something to do with candy canes and little puppies. I still can't figure out exactly what, but I think I might get some decryption software for my computer to try and decipher this hiratic gibberish that people think we actually understand.

    I have a couple others I am working on, but still have no idea. One other Babble I have made progress on, had something to do with a few key words, "Tights", "Wrestling", "Tinkerbell".

    I am pretty sure this was a slam on me wearing tights and looking like a fairy. This I can understand, but the first babble still has me thoroughly perplexed.

    Any ideas?

    Last night I had a guy in a delivery truck honking and yelling at me (only other guy on the road) from across four lanes and a median. Now how the heck am I going to understand this embicile over the din of his truck, honking, wind noise, etc.? I dunno, but I presume he said "you are the epitamy of a studly uber man and I worship you!" I think this quote could well be derived from much of the yelling from automobiles. Really. Go with that.

    One of the great things about cycling is learning new skills. For example I've learned when driving a car and telling a slower vehicle, pedestrian, cyclist what you think about them when passing to always stick to two single or one double syllable words.

    If you are experienced you will enlist the help of your passenger to communicate for you.

    That, for me, is one of the benefits of riding with music. Most of the yelling is completely unintelligible to me, so it can't upset me. They could be saying all sorts of things about my Mom, my ancestors, and my sexual preferences and I wouldn't have a clue. It totally perplexes them when I just wave at them and smile. I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything that these folks feel the need to share with me.

    Now I know some smarty is going to point out, "But you can't hear something important either." Trust me people have much different facial expressions when they are trying to share something constructive and for these I pop out one of the earbuds.

    The last one I got sounded like "Garg urgle shhhzzzznt!! Ermmmm ing ghghghgh HA!"

    It doesn't seem to mean anything in any language on earth, but there are some other possibilities.

    In Klingon this can be roughly translated as: "Nice form on that hill you manly warrior of the two wheels"

    The more likely possibility though is in the lesser known Vogan language, if some liberty is taken with the punctuation, it could be taken as "You appear to have a small dab of french-onion dip on the tip of your nose."

    This seems more likely given what I had for lunch that day, and the fact that very few people in this area speak Klingon.
