    Killing Birds With Stones

    What is everyone's obsession with killing birds with stones? Furthermore, why is everybody trying to kill two birds with one stone? Is there a particular shortage of stones?

    Because it is easier to get the bird out of the bush and into your hand when it is deaded.

    It's what cavemen did before the invention of pool. "I throw rock off #9 striped and into #3 solid pterodactyl. Bet wooly mammoth, double or nothing."
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    There's just something to be said for a cruiser that can play like a mountain bike or run with the pack of ss/fg road bikes or be a good commuter or be a utility bike and pull a trailer or just cruise around like theres no care but the joy of a leisure ride.

    Apparently it requires two birds for every one stone.

    Yeah, but isn't more time with your hand spent in the bush a good thing?
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"
