you guys do realise

as soon as you've convinced everyone to go car free and we clean up the world and the air is fresh and clean our sun will either run out of hydrogen and go out or we will get hit by a comet or something really ironic but devastating will happen

murpheys law will own us all

Smooth move there, skippy...

Spoil the surprise for everyone why don't you?

Do you have any idea how much paperwork I had to wade through to arrange a damn comet?

Now I have to start all over again and come up with something spectacularly ironic...

I vote for gamma ray burst. It's got that grim futuristic edge and what's a post apocalyptic landscape without glowing green mutants?

I don't know, gamma rays are so 1970s...

Let me see what I have in the lab... maybe something involving theta rays with a xenon/thullium strobe dispersion amplifier.

Oh hell, to think all this time that I thought we were all going to be vaporized by solar radiation when our magnetic field collapses from when the North and South poles switch.

i'll watch the comet's approach and think "at least i got to ride my bike more than those people with the car racks."

biking is a biped's approximation of flight. i suppose i've been or will be a flying being somehow, supernovas and all.

Man... take out a few satellites purely by accident and you get labeled a villain.

It's almost enough to upset one to the point of vaporizing minions or crashing a burning bus full of orphans into a convent... or something.

I mean come on... it's not like I invented telemarketing or anything.

I'll have you know that a $5 craig's list car rack makes an excellent repair stand for the budget minded biker.
