Throw in the brifters and I'll think about it. He should really be offering them up for free. The dude lives in vaughan!

Reading the Odyssey is a light and simple read compared to Joyce. I noticed that ad and immediately thought that this guy is just trying to get out of paying his LBS to do the same job. Kind of ridiculous to charge for someone to come over and remove parts from your bike. I mean what happens if damage occurs etc?

As for Operator's request, when he shows he has mastered the full sentence and paragraph we'll move away from books.

Oh Jammer, this is an answer to your question in the Road Cycling thread regarding skateboards dropping bikes. That's Patrick who tries the mad scary pass, he's CRAZY both in terms of how fast he is and how far he'll push the envelope. A week after that vid was taken he managed to smash his acura into the back of a garbage truck so he's off the board for a bit.

Your futile attempts are caused by one or more of the following:

1. You are not a Mage / Palidin.
2. Your skill level is not great enough. Seek more EXP.
3. Your mana is to low. Seek MP potions or rest.
4. You don't have the right spell. ie: Summon Geek Banish

Successful geek banishing will make for a very still board.

Thats why you have to roll a natural 20 in order to get the spell off.
