  1. Today it was minus 29C wind-chill and I took a Taxi. I mentioned to the cabbie in passing that I
    usually ride a bicycle everyday but at -29 it was way too cold. The cabbie then says...oh I see this
    guy ride the weirdest looking bicycle downtown everyday...even in the snow, in the worst weather U
    can imagine...the guy must be nuts. I ask what the weird bike looks like and he describes my CLWB to
    a tee. He goes on and on about how the bike looks sooo comfortable,yet sooo weird too. He then looks
    in his mirror and says..U know, the guy wears a blue coat and dark lens glasses just like yours. I
    smile and the ride is over. I guess my riding is finally making an impact....how nice. (gotta work
    on the being nuts part).

    I have been thinking of making an aluminum foil helmet cover along the lines of the helmets seen in
    the movie "Signs". Wearing one of these plus the big smile most of us effect could put one pretty
    far up on the wacko scale.

    Do it. It has the added advantages of protecting against alien attacks
    [1] and CIA mind control.

    [2] See http://tinyurl.com/4ldx or search Google Groups for the October 2000 thread in
    uk.rec.cycling headed "Alien Attacks" (of course that may be the reason they wear them in Signs
    - I've never heard of the film, but a quick Google search suggests it's something to do with
    alien attacks).

    [3] See http://tinyurl.com/4le2 or search Google Groups for the May 2002 post in uk.rec.cycling
    containing the word "CIA".

    Yeah.. I have a helemt I am painting to look like a beanie (needs a couple more stripes). I have
    a propeller on top of it. Spins like crazy, but I have to put a spot of grease on the shaft
    before a long ride or it starts to vibrate. One learns to orient one's self in life to take
    advantage of natural strengths.. I look goofy enough on my bent, so I go with that strength,
    rather than fight it. :)

    Danny, you're being very naughty lulling folks into a false sense of security. You know you're not
    fully protected unless you also have this: http://zapatopi.net/mindguard.html
