    One time I found an opossum that was about half dead trying to cross the road - I stopped and a guy in a car stopped and he had a shovel in his trunk and we put the thing under a shady bush so he could die comfortably.

    If you choose to ride without a shovel, you just better think about the consequences.

    And if the poor animal died you could have used the shovel for burial, but what about the headstone? Shouldn't one be sure to carry a headstone?

    Yes, at one time, back around 1900, it was expected that cyclists carry. I've seen old ads for cyclists' *******s. There are also archaic laws in the books that permit cyclists to dispatch animals that are a nuisance. Ah, for the good old days.

    I've often thought that cyclists should be able to carry in order to level the playing field against the motorists out in traffic. But you'd have to have a pretty accessible holster in order to respond in time to motorist attacks. Probably a better solution, which technology is rapidly evolving into, would be tiny front and rear video cams that record an hour of images onto an SD card, tied in with the bike computer so that the cameras turn off about a minute after the bike comes to a stop, rubber side down or not. This way you'd have a record of how the motorist hit you whether or not you're still alive. Hell, I'd like to see this sort of thing black-boxed into cars and required for insurance or accident investigation purposes.

    Anyway, what to carry? A Glock would be the most fool-proof and quick. One that shoots S&W .40 cal for the stopping power...

    My only hope is that the OP's ability to aim is far superior to their ability to spell.

    Well, I for one support the right to bare arms. Specially in hot weather.

    believe me cone wrench BEARS DONT NEED TO GO ARMED but ive never come upon an aggressive bear but some have.remember if you run and it wants you he will have you in a flash and one swipe will remove what ever it hits./but for me coy dogs are more aggressive even though thay probably wont attack until there sure your helpless there a very cruel lot./Kenneth

    Well Rick I was good enough to be selected to fire the 1000 yard range with the B.A.R IN the USMC and I never had to chide anyone for a spelling error in the forums to get my gollies seems to me that would be better done face to face./Kenneth

    OK, everyone here put down their Starbucks, back away from the computer, count to ten and no one will get hurt.

    I'm usually not a nag, but Rick, if you're going to criticize someone for spelling, you at least need to use proper grammar. The sentence should read "...op's ability to aim is better than HIS ability to spell".

    Now I have better things to do than lurk here and break up these pointless kerfufles.
