Those of us on the rec.bicycles.* groups are very familiar with

Is it a baseball cap? One of those Panama jobbies? Perhaps a fedora? :-)

Default Pre-emptive strike is best

I think that you're very wrong here. All someone has to do is push you
while you bike past and you're lying on the ground wondering what
happened. A stick in the spokes will do the same thing. A rock to the
head and off you go.


Pre-emptive strike is best when riding a bike. A suspicious-looking
black SUV, particularly if it got tinted windows (is someone looking
at you or simply chatting on the phone?) with an "innocent soccer mom"
on board, may be sufficient reason to draw and...

Well, then you wake up from your dreams, and realize you own a
stationary bike that gives you great peace of mind.

Default the dinosaur was still there

--An excess of sardines can give you gout
Which is very painful.--

"The shark overhunts sardines till they disappear. Then he dies too."

Sorry to have made a short story with a sad ending. Do you know one of
the classics of the short story???

It's Augusto Monterroso's famous story, 'The Dinosaur'...

"When he woke up, the dinosaur was still there."

What analysis or application can you make out of it? Say a nightmare
where a dinosaur gets elected for 4 years and then re-elected, so he
never goes away? How about the SUVs? I see them in my nightmares where
they chase me in my bike. Are they trying to crush me, or just
overtake me? Or simply they live in the own big world and couldn't
care less about such an insect in a bike. Those are deep thoughts...

Was that repetition or what? I guess that's a recurrent dream. (Or
simply didn't show successful post.)

I have a Panama Hat, I've never had a head injury while wearing it, so they
must work.

I keep lemon juice soaked rags on the back porch to keep the elephants
out of my yard... Haven't seen any elephants so it must be working...
