I rented to first season of Dark Angel because through bike forums I found out that in the tv show she rides the same bike as me. As soon as I got home I opened up the DVD box set with six DVDs and started scanning forward on my laptop DVD player. After going through about three of them I realized that I had only watched three or four seconds of actual bike footage, total!! It is amazing that bike nerds out there had identified the model and all the componentry Jessica Alba was using. PS I have decided to start wearing a helmet.

i am so glad you finally decided to wear a helmet! i have heard they are good luck and only super hip people get to join the helmet club. I am eagerly waiting your admission, but its super elite so only AFTER you start wearing can you join.

To track my thoughts of the day I write my important notes on my hand and FYI right now it says " hel bott" meaning grab helmet and my nalgene bottle from my car. Also during my study breaks today, I have been watching my "going against traffic" videos AND I have noticed that they are all wearing helmets.
Thirdly, Jim thinks it is a good idea.
and yes, I need to attach a camera to the helmet becuase duct tape on forehead will not be good.

the revolution will not be televised, but you should know that it begins tomorrow.

The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal.
The revolution will not get rid of the nubs.
The revolution will not make you look five pounds
thinner, because the revolution will not be televised, Brother.

Khalid: I am scared to drive in some roads as the roads are bad.. Biking without sidewalk seem crazy to me esp in winter. Be safe.

Good to know that you decided to wear helmet now.

You will not be able to stay home, brother.
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out.
You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip,
Skip out for beer during commercials,
Because the revolution will not be televised.

Man, that is good

So how many of these "Hellbots" have you built? Do you plan on using them for good or for awesome? Either way, I'll take a dozen.

Khalid said...

Thanks man, I try to be pretty careful. The snow is one things that gets annoying for me about Michigan. I need to get into some snow sports so that I can appreciate winters more.
