    Stage 20: International Sign Language?

    Sunday 7/25

    After Simeoni's second attack for today was unceremoniously reeled in by the blue train, Ekimov, passing Simeoni, made a gesture. The intent of the gesture was clear to me, though its precise meaning was not.

    Can anyone interpret this unfamiliar Russian hand jive?

    He was giving the 'Hook 'Em Horns' hand sign (University of Texas)
    Loosley interpreted as 'You mess with the bull...'

    I thought that might have been it.

    Makes sense to me!
    Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

    I asked a coworker from Eastern Europe about the hand signal, and she said it was a cursing gesture, but not obscene. I do like the Texas Longhorns Hook Em' gesture.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    I noticed that too, I was reading yahoo and Lance said that most of the riders don't like Simeoni, how true is that?
