Sigh. If only one could cycle to work without having to worry about getting sweaty or having to change. Maybe we could could use a motor to power the bike. And for hot or cold days, we could put a shell around the bike and install a heater/AC. And we could use 3, maybe even 4 wheels so that people wouldn't be afraid of crashing

That's great. In the US there is a saying in the south "All hat, no cattle" for people who dress like cowboys but have never been on a horse, let alone own cows, but dress like professional rodeo stars.

I laughed when he said his commute time dropped by 20 minutes, and he was now off to take a 20-minute shower.

And at the beginning the other guy said that he only lived 10 minutes from the office. But, he commuted over the Pyrenees.

The OP video is pretty funny, the animated one kept repeating the same joke for 4 minutes before I got too sick of the computer-generated voices to make it any further.

I'll wait for the book. 3.5 more minutes ain't happening for me.

Don't watch the whole thing, then just skip to the end. I won't spoil it for you. Trust me; it's great.
