    So I got off my bike, carried it a few feet to the side, got on it, and slowly wobbled my way past the stopped cars. So lame of that cop... Just causing me grief for no reason at all.
    Griefers in real life and in the virtual world.

    Well, front street is a madhouse with closed off lanes and stuff this evening. The cops were super nice to me though. A cop walked in the middle of the road to stop traffic (I was in front) and he told me to just go ahead and made the cars wait. I asked if I could ride on the other side of the pylons and he went "huh? Oh yeah, of course. Go ahead!" Then I came up to a red light and the cop stopped the advance green traffic to let me through. Thanks guys.

    You should have known me when I was living on St. George. I was so vehemently against having a television in the house that it actually got smashed from one swift blow from a woman's golf club. (Don't worry- it wasn't a fit of rage, just a lost bet) Anyways, it was one of those old school VHF/UHF tv's, so the glass was like an inch thick. The golf club only cracked it, and didn't implode it (which we were hoping for). Anyways, the TV lived out the rest of it's days in our living room, on it's table, but we co-opted it and put a sticker that read 'Ads Suck' on the centre of the screen.

    A modern art statement, if you will.

    When I was at university in Ottawa we used to go to a club to play cosmic bingo, and the big prize at the end of the night was to light atv on fire and then beat the crap out of it with a piece of rebar. Awesome fun. Another night it was a punchcard computer from the '60s. That thing took forever to bust up. Good times at Zaphods I tell ya.

    Yeah but you may want a Tri-Flow chaser.

    Despite his quiet, unassuming exterior, unbeknown to his friends, his PVC collection was one of the worlds' finest.

    And in turn, that reminds me of Romancing the stone.

    Call me a facist ("you're a facist!") but there should be rules against posting your ugly-ass fixies on FGG

    ie: http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/2007/jan/KSantos.htm

    Same brand, but much better http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/2007/jan/LeeLally.htm

    I know, they probably love their bike, and that's all that matters, but I'm constantly disappointed when I go eagerly to look up some new hot bikes on FGG, and I get these beaters. Bah!
