Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

the 'get better msngr' thread

So, our buddy msngr had surgery on his hand today. He's all drugged up. Lucky him.

Seeing as how he will be bored, drugged, and a bit loopy for a spell, i thought we could offer him both our best wishes and our favorite online (low-thumb-usage) time wasters.

as in, look, online sudoku!

get better msngr!

ok, here's one http://jwz.livejournal.com/590382.html
it's a collection of links to movies that can best be described as 'wtf is WRONG with japanese culture!?'

some of the stuff is VERY nsfw, and may also make you barf.

get better brean, and save some drugs for when you're better!

...and I got my pins out last night. Hand surgery (and anesthesia) SUCKS.

The road to recovery is fortunately paved with **** weather... if you gotta get hurt, now's the time to do it.

wow, thanks everyone.

who knew you could waste so much time on this internet thingy?

for some reason i'm really good at the drunk walking one and the one where you hit the girl with your bike.

the doc is really concerned about my pain level and has prescribed lots of goodies, so i should be fine.

thanks again.

Heal up, Brean! You can't offer drinks to recovering alcoholics if you're cooped up in bed.
