Probably not so much the cycling as the lycra.

Yep.

It says for "gentlemen and lady riders", but in my experience the decidedly uncouth can wear them as well, without repercussions.

It would be kind of cool if we had zeppelins around again, hauling things.  Slow air travel. 


Just a random, unrelated thought.

21st century. We can make better now.

And they can stick wifi on them all.  Controlled, airborne, free internet.


Heck with it.  I'll take my flying car, but have it be a bit of a blimp too so if it messes up, it will just float around.  No road maintenance needed then either.  Money saved.  I can just hop in, let it float/drive me to work, and read email along the way.  Add some solar power with the amount of ballast covering used.

I think I'd like my personal zeppelin to look more like a shark.  The regular blimp sharp and even the 'air whale' don't quite have the look I'm going for. Maybe navy blue or black or something.

That's not quite me.

I'd also go for a transparent or 'invisible' coloring.   Have it completely blend in. 

Or have it appear like something that shouldn't be there. The air whales look amusing, except it's a whale.

I'll take one "sportscar" airship.  And then I'd like one larger airship that has a decent sized apartment attached.  I'd save money on property taxes.  Just float around.  Get tired of that location.  Float somewhere else. 

I see I'm not the only one.  Interesting google images.

I'll take that in silver too.  Just because it looks cool.

I think we could go for hitting page 30 by July 1st.  That sounds realistic, while pushing it a bit.

So, uh... You guys get started with this project.  You've got a lot of posting to do.

I think you guys are falling behind.  You're supposed to be hitting page 30 by July 1st here.

Our fault, we decided to hang onto it for just a bit longer this year.

Looks like we've now let go, so you should be sunburnt in no time.
