Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

As always, the newest GTA never fails to show me that my once pinnacle gaming rig is showing its age.

I remember when I used to be able to max out games w/ full AA. I have to settle for mostly medium now with some AA. :/

I'll build myself a new one once DDR4 comes off the enthusiast chipsets and to the masses. No early adopters fee this time around!

Saw somebody getting EMT help on the way into work, looked like she got right hooked. Didn't look good though, was face down and not moving.

In Portland? Wow, Didn't think that kind of violence existed there. Maybe she stepped on the wrong mother****ers birkenstocks.

No such thing as violence in Portland, most you'll get is passive aggressive note writing but I didn't see it happen but I'd put money on her getting swiped by a car. It's a sketchy road with a nice downhill that bikes go straight but about half the cars take a right.

I think T13 was interpreting "got right hooked" to me "got punched with a right hook."

Yeah, that's what i was thinking.

Man that really sucks. A few years ago, here in Cleveland, we had a younger chick commuting through downtown on her way to Cleveland State, and was killed by a semi who wasn't supposed to be in this area of downtown(he was lost). He did the same thing, pulled a right turn in front of her, pulled her into the rear wheels of the truck.

Bus drivers here in Cleveland love to whizz past you, then cut you off as they cut in to stop at the bus stop just ahead of you.

I think all bus drivers everywhere are secretly conspiring together to do whizzbys

Yeah, headed into downtown. I always take the lane/middle coming down couch. It's such a cluster.

Also, Nagrom. Don't get into the car industry, it sucks and the people suck more.

Depends though. I mean, new cars? old cars? "Working at the carwash"?, chop shop? Body shop? Lube Stop? Valet driver?
