"It has none of the qualities of our work that I find attractive."

I would go used for under 1K

Maybe everyone still mopeing around here is all wound up b/c they're not out in the weather, riding a bicycle (that's my immediate probl;em). Minds get loopy. Long weekends press in. The future tugs upon your present. Thoughts...become like. Captain. Kirk's. "Things fall apart. The center cannot hold! Anarchy is loosed upon the world."

"What a pathetic, dismal chord sequence..."

Or perhaps it's just me, over the past 24/h my life has given proof to the tired maxim: when it rains, it pours: The transmission? $2500! I don't think so, bub. That car only has 72K miles on it! (got them down to $800) Everything seems humorously drab on this forum today...not the people mind me, just the topics...(not that there's anything wrong with that! bet even Piazza would agree)

"It is impossible to achieve the aim without suffering."

Tire patches. Dirty hands. Nasty little nasties. This post. Great stuff, but I think over at the networks, they would call this a slow news day. And don't talk about the Giro. And never buy a car built on a monday or a friday.

"Don't do it like that, do it like this! MADNESS!! One Step Beyond!"

I'm tempted to post a NON-cycling Top 5 question ON the cycling board.

"To normalize typically taboo behavior can be both cathartic and cataclysmic."

Oh, I forgot to read the philosophical thoughts post first. Apologies if i've repeated someself. I'll go read it....

"Mediocrity is a virtue too"

oh, well. just a thoughtwreck...FORE!

I agree with that. With all 105 that's the best deal I've seen in a while
