    From the Twilight Zone ...

    I'm sure you have had experiences, or something mechanical that you swear came from the twilight zone, or behaves like it was created from the Twilight Zone.

    I'll start off. Now, this may happen many times, but this is the first time I've noticed it. I was riding along, with my Garmin Edge 205 in my jersey pocket. I would check periodically to see what distance I am at. One time I check it, the screen is blank. WTF ... it turned itself off. I swear I didn't do it. So I turn it back on. It goes through the motion of detecting satellites. When I upload the data to motionbased.com, it continued to record all the way through. Weird ... Usually when it turns itself off, it stops recording. Or is this some energy saver thing the Garmin suddenly decides to do on a whim?

    Have you noticed any missing time, burns on your body, our pain in the rectal area?
    could be alien abduction. I used to get them all the time and I'd wake up with a lampshade on my head and in another city...

    Oh, you mean the lampshade you were wearing on the ride was not a helmet?

    It's a glitch in The Matrix. Ignore it.

    Hmmm -- I sense you're not talking about poor bike fit here, are you?
