    Awww, you PUNKS are all right....

    A funny thing happened to me on my commute this morning.

    I was just reaching the end of my first climb, through a ransition neighbourhood, when I heard a car behind me, rattling alongside me, keeping pace but just out of my sight. As the car approached, Iheard what every cyclist dreads... teenagers in a car snickering, and saying "no man, YOU do it!"

    As I braced for whatever offense was sure to follow, the car sped up, and as it passed, a stringy-haired kid in a black metal t-shirt stuck his head out the window, and said:

    "We love you, man!"

    And with that the car sped off, with the kids in the back seat laughing maniacally!
    Nowadays I've got me two good wheels - and I'll seek refuge in aluminum and steel;
    Takes me out there for just a little while, and the years fall away with every mile...

    Those guys are fairly laughable (the kids in the car, too)--though the dude on the left has a pretty cool looking pogo-stick...

    Haha, I used to listen to underground metal when I was in high school. So many depressed teenagers... I never thought I would run across people who knew about these bands on a biking forum...black metal and cycling don't really mesh; at least I didn't think they did.

    And that's a wicked Garden Weasel on the right.

    To me, the funniest thing about music like this is that, for it to be good, it still relies on precision ensemble performance. All that "chaos, destruction, and death" comes across best when it's executed cleanly.

    are the guys on the ends in the lawn aeration business?.... or just into building scale models of telegraph poles?
    There are 10 types of people in the world - the ones that can count in base 2, the ones that can't count in base 2, and the ones that didn't expect this to be in base 3.
