    Barenaked Ladies, on July 18. So far, this is the only posting in this thread that is even vaguely bicycle-related. Pie for anyone who knows why.

    A 60-65 year old man yelled "nice f**king ass" at me when I was waiting at a stoplight. I'm not sure if he was trying to be nice or encouraging though.
