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

Ducks have skin. What do you think the feathers attach to?

I doubt it. But if you had killer acne and are now a crater face, you may have something going.

I blame iTunes. I upgraded to v.9.2 today., Ever since, my computer has been running like it's under water, and I missed the shaving thread and whine fest following it. I like you Grumpy- musician, wordworker, science geek, and time trialist. Except for the TT part, you sound like a perfectly normal guy!

Thick skin will slow me down...I will be heavier & less flexible. The upside thick skin will help in a crash.

Couldn't believe it when I got on this morning and this still wasn't locked. It's not only outlived the original thread, it's outlived the thread that inspired the original thread!
