    VC: New Rules

    Your attention, please:

    I hereby declare VC to be so broad as to encompass all and any forms of two-wheeled human-powered locomotion (and on occasion, one, three, four and no-wheeled forms as well), with exceptions that I hereby claim the sole right to define and, should the situation warrant, redefine, eliminate or contradict. I now lay first, primary and only claim to the right to arbitrarily move goalposts, lower or raise bars, change metrics, establish or eliminate standards, excommunicate or beatify devotees. The current claims in no way limit any further seizure of powers on my part, nor do they imply that I am in any way obligated to actually use these or any other future powers consistently or at all.

    I further reserve the right to transfer any, all, part or some of these powers on an ad hoc, temporary or permanent basis to anyone else int he known cycling or non-cycling world at any time I deem fit.


    Sorry, Helmet Head, I saw which way the wind was blowing (http://bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=306029) and I called it first. No backsies and no penny tax, sucker. VC is mine, and I am now officially the pope of VC.

    My first pronouncment: VC is heretofore expanded to include dangerous, non-legal practices provided they are being used to chase down ice cream trucks. Try the chocolate dipped chocolate when you catch up. It's dreamy.

    I'd like to be the first to invite you to throw out the first pitch at the annual BF baseball tourney, your Holiness.

    Just make sure the honorarium is cold, frosty and six in number. I'll bring my own funny hat, thanks.

    excommunicate or beatify devotees.
    I would like to suggest that the pathway to beatification require demonstration of 3 beericles (beer + miracles) and that sins against the holy spirits require an automatic council to convene to consider excommunication.

    Can we now have our VC masses in English instead of HeadSpeak? Stronger wine would be nice too...maybe a replace the incense with a little herb?

    Don't count on much in the way of showmanship, as I intent my papacy to be largely hands-off, but services, when appropriate, will be conducted in Latin.

    instead of communion wafers, can we use Nilla wafers instead? or oreos. that would hit the spot after all that herb.

    How 'bout a second pronouncement, appointing Chipcom as Sergeant at Arms for dealing with VC lowlifes who question your authority?
    And a third pronouncement appointing yours truly as the Duke of Decorum, to decide if any of the previous VC PooBahs have changed their spots and started spouting something worth taking seriously.

    OIC - I get to be a lowly ole Sarge while you get to be a Duke. I can live with that, as long as there are plenty of twinkies.

    Shouldn't this go in FOO?

    There are folks here who find cycling vehicularly, rules of road, defensive driving, etc. to be very effective and all this nonsense and personal attack does nothing pro or con in regard to discussing various ways of riding in (or out) of traffic.

    OK I'm generous, I'll recommend that HH and JF be appointed the Dynamic Duo, or better, the Dukes of Hazard.
