Bikes, ICBM's and Thermonuclear Weapons

Discuss!

Should cyclists carry an ICBM with them where ever they ride? Should it be equipped with a MIRVed Hydrogen Fusion Device, or should we settle for a mere fission device?

I eat power bars and bananas before rides and burritos after rides, so I am in myself a thermo nuclear weapon.

I seldom carry my pole and tacklebox with me on a ride, I just walk to the creek at the end of my street. So no, I do carry my fission weapon on my bike,but I have no problem if others want to do so.

That's a chemical weapon! If you have enough hot sauce though, you're a flamethrower as well!

From time to time I come into close proximity with a vehicle I'd like to annihilate. Would one of those work?

Quite effectively, but it would be a Pyrrhic victory at best!

Nukes don't kill people. People kill cows. Cows taste good.

The weight weenie in me does not approve of the presence of an ICBM on Vivian. Her weight would skyrocket.

Skyrocket ? Good idea !
Should one take the whole lane when riding a skyrocket in a narrow sky?

Yes, you take the lane. The FAA demands it. And don't worry. With an ICBM strapped to your bike, those structurally much weaker Airbus A380's will give you plenty of room.
