  1. Check out this bike powered bus that Andrew Morton found on the web:

    Wow, what a fun way to speak to our fuel dependency.

    If U want to know what the signs say, NBG volunteer, Marielle Stoelinga, from Holland, offers this
    explanation:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It says: "9th lustrum of the WSV simon stevin"

    * lustrum is a latin word (and also exists in English) for a 5 year period; thus, these guys are
    celebrating the 45th anniversary of WSV.

    * WSV stands for (I had to click on the link) werktuigkundige studie vereniging that is association
    for students in mechanical engineering.

    * Simon Stevin is a famous dutch mathematician and mechanical engineer who lived 1548 - 1620, see
    http://www-gap.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/Mathematicians/Stevin.html

    It is a cool picture! The university is actually in my home town!

    cheers, Marielle

    Ever wanted anything so bad U were willing to die for it? Really die? By moving thru clinical death
    and reversing paralysis, *I saw God* when I answered that question.
