We prefer to think of them as well-aged.

That is the best friggin idea ever until I tried to figure out how many mm to set the rotation too for the "wheel". Plus, on most centrifuges ('cept the small benchtop ones), you can set the rpms and the diameter is known, so there's no need to do the computer thing. But it would still be a blast to see how high the cyclocomputer would go based on your current settings.

I went to grad school at UK, and I know exactly where you're talking about b/c I used to commute on Cooper. I miss that place actually. All of my teenager stories in the other thread have been in Lexington. That's awesome that they thought you were going too fast but I agree that it's likely they thought you were a motorcycle. Good job!
