    I don't get it...

    why is it that if I go to a bar and drink two or three beers, when it comes time to leave, everybody that has had more to drink than me gets all worried about me on my bicycle. They, even though they have had more to drink than me, think that I would be better off getting into a 2000LB careening death machine with a drunk behind the wheel as opposed to pedaling home on my bicycle. Is my logic ****ed up? I just don't get it. Why am I the oddball?

    They don't realize that the wind in your face tends to sober you up a bit?

    Maybe they're afraid that they might inadvertently mow you down in their drunken attempts to keep their death machines off the sidewalk and on the right side of the double yellows.

    touch of 'its dangerous to ride bicycles in the street', combined with the ever-famous 'I have a higher tolerance than most, IM ok to drive'.

    Obviously you're not a real 'Merican. That darn counter-culture has got you all bugaboo.

    Just tell your friends that you're totally fine to ride just as long as you keep your head perfectly still.

    Next time, your reply should be as follows:
    "Just because you can't ride a bike when you are sober doesn't mean I can't ride one when I've been drinking."

    i'm sure you can handle yourself, and it sounds like your friends are just being cautious. it's better that they care than not, right? as for drunken riding - i guess you have to look at it logically. in a car you're probably more likely to kill someone else, and on a bike you risk the chance of making one small mistake and ending up as road kill.

    No, but I don't have a cat. A cat thought it would be a good idea to live with me for a week or so, but it left.

    I have other things though. And I was itching for a couple of weeks.. F*ck shaving. It's not worth it. I'm working on my winter beard now. And, no, that's not what was itching.....

    And even though I am just now noticing this was for MKRG, my statement still stands.

    Long live the Jameson.

    The only time I shave anything is after a few. The problem is that I seem to have a problem. I'm shaving all sorts of animals lately. You should see the neighborhood squirrels.
