    Student gets stolen bike back, and she should get an A for this effort.

    It took a lot of checking Craigslist, online research, contact with police, grunt work and intelligence, but here is quite an interesting story. I do appreciate one with a happy ending.

    The article really jsut goes to show how the cops don't care and won't lift a finger to do anything.

    They'll certainly lift a finger if there is a doughnut hanging off the end of it...

    It would've been a happier ending if it had explosions and kung fu.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Nice!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Man, bike theft is so easy and profitable. It's a wonder something more serious isn't done to deter it.

    Don't forget the Matrix, freeze-frame camera rotations. Those are "must-have" now.

    Good for her!

    Now what about these 200 pound guys I see riding those 20" pink kids bikes. There has to be a special place in Hades for them. I'm real sure they did not buy those bikes.
