Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It can be, but it'll also show you how quickly the really good deals can get snapped up from under you. Even with a 15 minute refresh, I still get beat on really desirable stuff (well, particularly if the seller is one of those "honorable" CL sellers that gives responders dibs).

Two Addictions operating at the same time. I am concerned about a rift in the space-time continuum.

I think that's short for iHeartRadio which is an app to listen to music and talk that people stream out on the interwebs.

Can't a guy forget and fall asleep on occasion??

Besides, I'm still on vacation. This Az air has dried up the inter-synaptic fluids and caused some neurological dysfunction.

Yeah, that last bit sounds good, I'm sticking with that one.
