Great video of some track racing there. Dude kinda looks a little like RickyD, but I hesitate to say that because, (1) All insanely skilled fixed gear riders of any sort tend to look like RickyD to me; and, (2) I've never been fast enough to see RickyD at speed, so I wouldn't know if his cheeks fill with air like that.
Some random thoughts:
- Girls, if you are blessed by mother nature, for goodness sake, don't wear a tight political T-shirt with lots of messages on it in friggin' 12 pitch print then expect people not to look. Listen, if people take your message seriously, they'll be staring at your chest reading the damn thing. VOTE OBAMA the Candidate of Change and Hope don't worry the tax hike won't hurt McCain is really old, ever notice that? I have and it's weird, you know? Seriously, if we're supposed to read the message without offending you, please be concise, and stick to short, clear statements in an easily read text, such as Times New Roman or Courier. Serif fonts are more easily read quickly.
- If you're a curvy 45 year old woman shopper at Trader Joe's in the cofee aisle on Saturday, wearing a red sweatshirt with a detailed message regarding Obama's hope for change, or changed hope, or whatever it said in the small print on your chest, please don't be offended. I was trying to read your shirt. No, really I was. Thank you for not hitting me with that 10 pound sack of new potatoes you were brandishing at me.
Speaking of change you can believe in, I do believe my tax situation is going to change, for the worse. Believe it! Last week, rich, for scumsucking idle wealthy buggers deserving of a tax hike, went from $250k per year to $150k per year and I bitched about it in a post about how there's no free lunches; never have I gotten so rich, so quick, with so little to show for it. Well, as it turns out now, I'm not rich, I'm probably way beyond rich, and we're going to have to divvy that tab for the big free lunch a little more broadly than we had at first plan, way back in the foggy depths of the primordial electoral slime, eons ago last Wednesday.
Yep, rich is now $120k per year, and like the rest of the economy, the forecast for rich is slipping pretty hard. Dagnabbit. With the wife between jobs and me trying to slack off as much as possible, I was hoping to avoid the tax hike, but it looks like it's coming for me no matter what I do. And the other guy is talking about taxing welfare and burning orphans in the furnace, or something like that if I heard the ads correctly.
Yeah, you can talk about going John Galt and all, but what if Wesley Mouch is willing to settle for table scraps?
I hope we have the election soon, otherwise homeless people will be getting classified as rich, and will come in for a tax hike.
On the upside, I can tell my wife I'm going to retire young now, as I had hoped. We'd always said that if we got rich, we'd quit our jobs and open a bed and breakfast in Camden, New Jersey. Tpk exit 4 here we come!
Seriously though, I don't care who you vote for and I don't endorse anybody; I just pick fun. I do encourage you to read up on the issues, think about what is important to you and whether the candidates' statements measure up to your own critical inquiry, then exercise your right to vote. The election is Tuesday, BTW.
