    I thought this funny:

    Switch to the left leaves Samoan drivers fighting for their rights

    heeeheeee.

    I do have some sympathy with our Samoan friends.
    Ourselves and the Brits are the only ones in Europe (I think) who drive on the left hand side of the road.

    The first few minutes of driving on the continent are always good fun - trying to get your bearings.
    Navigating out of Barecelona airport was particularly memorable!
    Talk about sixes and sevens!

    Didn't this have something to do with the ancients keeping their sword hand free so they could slash at enemies as the rode past?

    These days, International Talk Like a Pirate Day reminds me of this mob:

    Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster

    especially the 'Global average temperature vs. Number of pirates' graph.

    Anyway, Charlie Brooker's new article is good for a laugh. Here it is: Charlie Brooker: The doctors were about to stick a needle in my spine.

    I am here to rekindle the fire. I want to know about bicycling. How does one get started in velodrome racing? I have seen it here in San Diego down the street from me at the velodrome in Balboa Park... and it really inspires me. Do they accept novice velodrome riders at most of those places or do you have to be sponsored or something?:rolleyes:

    Ring the velo, ask which clubs ride/train there. Then ring the clubs and ask about their track cycling. If it's like Oz,there'll be a few old club bikes for you to hire while you figure out if track is your thing. Then turn up to ride at a club practice session.

    After a few of those, you may be ready to ride a low grade scratch race. Take it step by step and you'll be fine. A good cheap track bike is about a grand, brand new. You don't need anything better until someone gives you a sponsorship.

    Soon enough you'll be sharing elbows with everyone else.

    Wait. When did they allow discussion of cycling on here. This is very strange.
