I can kick the **** of the best runner in the world too. Aim... kick.
Easy. A cyclist's **** would make a bigger target though.

Oooh! Touché!

Also, it is harder to kick things whilst on a bike.

Astrology, doncha mean? Hey, what's it mean when Mars is in
conjunction with Aquarius, and the moon is full?

I'm no astrologer! My post-hole is a proper 'lectrickery one. Indeed,
this whole bleedin' place would run _so_ much smoother if we just
kicked the astrologers out :)

Actually, I must confess I've been doing a lot more framebuilding of
late than perhaps I should :) I finished off number three on the
weekend.
