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)

Yep it is me in all my splenda. With my 2 hour window of internet connectivity at 139 in the AM here in the purrrrrsian gulf. Full moon lighting up the sky, oil wells buring in the distance and me with about 7 hours of total sleep for the last 3 days. In fact, I don't know what day it is.

Thursday.

Yeah. well that means something I guess. @#$@# tired.

Well to all the regulars... yeah.

contacts blurry, must sleep soon, waiting on phone calls, on HOLD..

gotte pee can't hang up...

@#$#

And a million other thing not fit to print here.

Admit it 165, you like Capri suns. They fit in your spandex shorts and make a good buldge.

Where's Rancid at?

Rancid you're a quitter!!!!!

But email me about your DD214: I'll give you hints and tips.

165 never drinks his Capri Suns straight, only as a mixer.

Good to read the words of WK once again. Be safe.

I ride with brakes and a freewheel and that Capri Sun sounds good to me. What is it, like, the French Riviera in the Summertime?

Thanks for the e-mail updates too, Willy. Enjoy hearing about your adventures. I'd say 'stay safe' too, but fark, you're on the biggest ship in the universe and have more chance of being shot by a collegue or stubbing your toe.

Hows the Yellow Peril coming along? Is she rolling or does she need some help?

The Thylacine sits at home, waiting my return. Iím slowly building savings to finish it all in one shot when I return. Itís taking more patience than should rightly be taken, but itís an exercise in fiscal responsibility.

Jgroman, you don't have to talk about me in 3rd person.. A boat is what the Air force uses to get their golf balls in. A boat is what the Army uses when the water gets above their ankles. A boat is a 72 Cadillac El Dorado, two door, that you can put a fully assembled bike in the trunk. Itís a ship, not a boat. The poop deck, is actually one of two containers that hold a combined 95,000 gallons of collected sewage, complete with a peculating system so that it doesnít settle before discharge. Salt water is used as flushing water. So, itís X amount of gallons of salty *****, basically. I took no bike with me: there is no room for it. Nice snide comments though.

And really, Thylacine cycles is pretty right. Iím on a big hunk of steel here, about as safe as you can get. The guys in the ***** are the ones on the ground. All we do is launch planes to protect them. (Well, that and a bunch of ďotherĒ things.). So, life here is, in a relative sense, safe. Unless that idiot Hersh decides to make us some BS story about whatís going on out here and then stir the Iranians up into a bunch. Free speech is pretty dangerous sometimes.

It sounds like a happy boat. I bet they all sing and dance when they swab the decks so early in the morn'...like a floating musical.

I like Capri-Sun. In fact, I knew as Capri-Sonne growing up. Thylacine -- was it ever called that in Oz?
