Hey now, you're being ageist. 8D

Let's have even more fun:

White people ride bikes to ________. Non-white people ride bikes to __________.

See anything objectionable with that?

White people ride bikes to look even whiter. Non-white people ride bikes to enjoy themselves and boost fitness.

This is a fun game. I'm enjoying myself. We should treat it more like Madlibs:

White people ride bikes to run over snails in the rain. Non-white people ride bikes to defeat the huge Dune worms.

guys ride bikes to do whatever the hell they want; girls ride bikes to do whatever the hell they want

I'm not going to reinforce gender stereotypes on a bike forum to get likes.

Yeah, because the ads on the right margin with buxom, non-white women in skin-tight dresses aren't sexist enough. 8D

I pay for the forum, so no distracting buxom women. If I feel the need, GCN.com has them. So far, am not feeling the need.

Come to think of it, considering the inane arguments that pepper this forum, maybe buxom women would be a welcome distraction.

I contribute threads so people have something to read and comment on versus many who just complain. Some of my threads hit and some miss. Not going to please everyone - except the complainers since it gives them fuel.
