    Bikes of the Future

    Just a quick note.

    In the movie LATHE OF HEAVEN (2002) all the bicycles shown in the street scenes are recumbents. One shot even shows a couple rolling along on a recumbent tandem (looks like a RANS Screamer).

    Since the movie is set in an unspecified future date, the production designer must have decided that recumbents are truly the "bikes of the future".
    Even the old horse in the barn still dreams of galloping a thousand miles....

    I hate to point this out, but we're not wearing aluminium foil suits and driving flying cars yet, as per 1950s scifi predictions

    Well, maybe you aren't, but I am. I just picked up my aluminum business suit from the robotic dry cleaners' this morning. I had to ride my recumbent there, because my flying BMW was in the shop...

    Wow, you still leave the house in this modern world? I just do all my work in my underwear from the kitchen.

    It's an unfortunate necessity... the time lag in communications to the Moon and Mars is just too large!
