    Told to Buy a Car (Ha, Ha, Ha)

    I was out early this morning riding. There was a light rain, but nothing major. I am stopped at a light and this guy pulls up beside me in a Lexus. He rolls his window down and says "You're getting wet out there! Maybe if you would work a little more, you could afford a car like this! Have you given that a thought?" I responded by pulling out my keys and showing them to him. I said "Maybe if you worked a little harder and worked out, you could afford a Mercedes and look good too! Have you given that a thought?"

    He was just stunned for a few seconds. He got the maddest look on his face and then tore off. I had to laugh! It was hilarious!!! He was trying to look down on me because he thought I had nothing, being on a bicycle! What an idiot!!! I'll bet he never says anything like that to another cyclist!

    Maybe if he spent a little more time on the bike he'd have leggy blonde in the passenger seat and be too buy to notice a guy riding a bike. go figure.

    heheh today I was coming out of Peterson's Winery and this clown drives passed. He's saying to his passenger and shaking his head "He's f'n mad". It's little things like that, that can make your day.
    School years were the best days of my life. I used to get caned by middle aged women wearing high heels, stocking and glasses. Now I have to pay for it.

    Works with my firefox too. I just don't like it. It's intrusive and big brotherish.

    Do you realize how public your browsing the internet is? Even if you have a router and/or a firewall, the information in my signature is available to anyone. Every site you go to, every email you send, can be tracked, unless it is an https site or the email is encrypted. It's scary, but my signature is there to inform others of the lack of privacy they have while on the internet and to think twice before doing something on the net, they may regret years down the road. Case in point, I have never posted anything I wish I had not, but there are posts that I posted from the early 90's still available on the net.

    It'll be OK Roody, it only displays it to you. Nobody else can see your ISP and stuff. Promise.

    And he is right! The information in my signature changes for each person that views my posts. You were not singled out!

    Because I assume haagen has firefox and the signature did not work on his and he was informing us of that.

    That's what I thought. I doubt if they even have firefox in Australia!
