Default MTBing Safer Than You Might Think

Hmmm, think I'll go see a ball game.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...2004Nov21.html

Naaaah, too dangerous.


Hmmm, how about hunting?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...2004Nov22.html

Naaaah, too dangerous.



Thanks goodness for MTBing!

Peace,
Bill

I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits to
humans ("pure habitat"). Want to help? (I spent the previous 8
years fighting auto dependence and road construction.)

You mean you are *not* looking to pay $200+ to watch millionaires beat
the accountant next to you to a bloody pulp? Now that I've typed it
out I guess it *doesn't* seem like such a good use of my time. Ride
on...

Kraig...

I'm hoping the "masses" get that the above was "funny" (depending on
one's definition of funny that is). /Now/ you can ride on...

No...

There's "being so fat that you died while having the sofa surgically removed
from your ass" dead.

or

There's "death from engaging in a sport that you love" dead.


I'll choose the latter.


Then there's "being an annoying bull**** environmentalist trust fund baby
and some Englishman comes along and beats you to death with a pair of
chopsticks" dead.


I guess it's all in the "impression" you leave behind.

Mike

On 22 Nov 2004, the cheeks of Mike Vandeman parted, and a trumpetous
noise emerged:

Just like your capacity to reason.

Are you still alive? I thought you bit the big one last week. I guess
you just smell that way.
