Some kids get pushed into ditches on bikes.
My mom pushed me into a tree while sledding.
I broke my leg.
"Accidents"

Hey Toronto, are they still running the ferry from Rochester to you?

So I just read the Toronto thread some. Great stuff in there. Weirdest part is they aren't all off topic like we are. They are actually having discussions.

We just ghost ride our thread.

Then I realized, the number of pages they have is almost equal to the number of posts we have.

thankfully philly is pretty devoid of cosplayers, we just have red-blooded american crazies here.

nothing better than standing around eating Maoz and watching two psychotic people (or really bad crack heads, hard to tell) trying to pierce each others' ears.

sounds pretty cool. I haven't seen the new color. revolutions knocked a bit off the price when i took his 06 complete. I upgraded to sti's and got a granny gear put in (and of course had to get a different front derailleur). But you're going with some higher end parts i see; sweet. up and running by fall? earlier? later? who the hell knows, whenever you get the cash?

actually, Ben Franklin was HELPING philadelphia. You see, we have a child overpopulation problem.

It keeps our child population down which means less children will starve to death/ run out into the highway. Ben runs the battle every year using his "magic bean" to control the childrens minds.
