    Today I ate hard salty sidewalk $h1T while riding my bike to work. I passed a couple of pedestrians and opted to go in between a planter and light post. There was a small (like 4") mound of snow directly in my path. The funboi in me said.. "jump it." So I listened. The result was a no-style feeble bit of air. I landed on a patch of ice, slid out and smashed my knee on the hard cement.

    I'll never learn.

    Good deal!

    We need our friend "I'll give you ten dollars if you can deliver" to give him a smack down.

    Ugh. Have to write an exam tonight. Politics of Public Policy and Public Finance. I love these stupid crosslisted Pol Sci class taught by economists. Esp my prof who always asks questions starting with "When you apply for a job as an ecomomist with the U.N...." Guy I'm a frigging chef and teacher. I'm never applying to the U.N. Ask something that normal people can understand. Or his replies to answers he deems too simple "That's how my grammy would explain it" I almost threw my helmet at him for that one. If I want to be insulted I'll just post in the roadie forum.

    After some deep breaths.....I too dig the $4000 bike. Almost tempted to offer $20 and a slinky.

    all the more reason to pay $4000 for it, much more durable than any wimpy road bike!

    couldn't you buy an actual motorbike for that price?

    just imagine how long he would last in a kitchen in the company of trash talking line cooks and the guy in the dish pit who deals weed on the side. "that's how grammy would explain in.." "uh, yeah guy, do me a favour and put your finger there for a sec..." chop!

    I agree. I mean it's likely worth $3500 (It is a Harley), but $4000? Come on. That's just silly.

    I mean I could buy like four Cadillac Bikes for that price. http://www.cadillacbicycles.com/ca_index.html

    I think there are 10ish spots per class. Or at least, Keith was saying with around 10 people we could probably have a class to ourselves. That would be awesome if we did get it to ourselves! And your right about the parking lot... I'll bring some uh pylons

    Just make sure you go to the parking lot behind the building. They frown upon burning on velodrome property.

    Those dogs look so happy! Tails all a-wagging, tounges hanging out in a doggy smile...

    Speaking of broken English, if you have too much time on your hands, try translating something into Korean, using the Altavista translator. Then, copy and paste the message (which will probably come out as total jibberish unless you have Korean text recognition on your computer) back into the translation box and translate it back into English. The results are really funny/creepy/strangely ominous.

    For example:

    Hi my name is Dan and I am a dog waterskiing enthusiast. I am going to translate this message using the Altavista babelfish translator. The idea is to show how 'wack' this Korean translation shiznit is.

    Becomes this:

    Goodbye name of B the Dan and I sleep and dog waterskiing excitement. I use a Altavistababelfish interpretation and in order to translate this message i am going. The idea as peels and 'wack' this Korean translation shiznit it is visible and.

    Am I the only one that finds this incredibly amusing??

    Here's the link: http://babelfish.altavista.com/

    This is what I wrote:
    Hi, my name is Mitch and I enjoy riding bicycles, I hope this translates into something awesome like an elephant.


    And the Translation turned it into this:
    Goodbye, my name the Mitch and this elephant of this highest silent row translate together I enjoy or hope the riding in a car bicycle.
