    If a journalist threw his shoes at you?

    I found the recent story quite humorous and was surprised that it was even taken to trial.

    I guess they have run out of bombs



    P.S. i didnt put this in P&R because i dont intend this thread to get political.

    good luck with that.

    Anyone know how to adjust caliper brakes on a 1987 Trek 8000 with Ritchey levers?

    I did not put this in mechanics, because I do not expect it to get mechanical.

    Hey, if the shoe fits, wear it. If it don't, throw it at a world leader.

    The following facts are true:

    1) I wear a size 10 shoe
    2) I have two of them at all times (sometimes none, but never just one)
    3) Prez Bush is scheduled to visit soon
    4) I live in a country that Prez Bush describes as "Free".

    Should I change careers and become a journalist?

    Well..... yes, it would have been as a matter of fact. That way he can fix his caliper brakes.

    by strict semantic definition shoes belong on feet. He threw his shoes at a world leader.

    Not that it was necessarily intended as derogatory or negatively.

    Yes, it IS your bad, and no, it DOESN'T make it cool. Please do not come into Foo as you would in mtb. If you want to reply in snarky ways, the Foosters won't put up with that. It is waaay different here.

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I always felt as though mtb forum was the drainage ditch leading away from foo.

    Ok dont get angry with me, there was no harm aimed in my comment, and I dont think I sent Jsharr away crying either.
