Jet Powered Bicycle

Logging in to yahoo this article caught my eye about a man that attaches jet powered engines to bicycles and sells them.  My first thought was, "If I tried that, my coffin would have to be shaped like a pancake because I would surely run smack into a tree, or worse some other living thing."  I have an uncanny knack for hurting myself, especially walking into things, crashing into things (like the backs of other people's cars).

No thank you, I'll just take my simple human-powered bike any day.  But I bet there are a lot of people who would like to try it just for kicks.

What say you, internet?

Wow, I have to agree with you, I'd run into something in no time. Faster than usual, even. Yeesh.

Tell me about it! Although my husband is a devout mountain biker, I think he would enjoy this for the sheer endorphin/adrenaline rush.

Nope, not no-how, as the guy from Oz would say.

I might do it if I were in NV and trying to break the land-speed record, but if there's no fame in it for me, I'd prefer to avoid the infamy.

I see things like that and my first thought is "Darwin at work", ;-) the second being "I wonder how bad it would hurt" LOL I am enjoying your blog very much. I wandered in from Copenhagen Chic.

Keep up the good work! You are going to be an excellent example for the generations to come.

Thanks Aaron,
I have a quote on my fridge that says: Be the change you want to see in the world, Ghandi" If only we could all live this way, huh?

Bit by bit by bit.
