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

I can't speak for anyone else, G. I don't think I am, but if I were, I guess I wouldn't know it, would I? You've been here. You tell me.

Great, thanks for blowing my cover. Now all the morons in town will be over here tonight with torches and pitchforks looking for revenge.

I may never get over to Turning Stone. I lived near a casino/horse racing track for years and never went in the place. But, I'll probably visit Hamilton College at some point for a concert, Haha.

it's been a while, but they used to hire me to fill in on symphonic concerts. I think the last one was over a year ago.

Posting on BF during a meeting gets you bonus points, right?

And you can still say prick.

OK we beat the original.

How about we discuss thick vs thin skin?

Eff skin. Feathers. Like a duck. Most stuff just rolls off my back.

Besides, thin skin is lighter.

Boy, the OP in the nonparody version of this thread had pretty thin skin. I wonder if that makes him any faster?

Thin skin is not aero.

Now if his skin were DIMPLED (a la ZIPPS), then we would be talkin' aero!
