    i was found unconscious in the park ...

    tell me what you think happened.

    i had been riding my bike. it was a warm afternoon, late and very still. i was hot and winded when i reached the park, so i stopped and sat under a tree. drinking from my water bottle and gazing across the lake, i listened to a quartet of street musicians playing jazz about 30 yards away. they weren't loud, and i found it very peaceful. i must've fallen asleep. i feel like i woke briefly to sillouets of people hovering over me, shading the sun. i remember an older couple and the words, "this is not a dream." but it's all a blur. i awoke with a squatty and plump dog licking my face with its long, rough tongue. i pushed it away, but immediately felt bad for it, as it was missing a front leg and yapped with pain as it hobbled away. a woman clutched a fat child and yelled at me to leave. i quickly stirred to attention and found my bike leaning on the tree, right where i left it. thank god. but my shoes and socks were missing. i felt no major pain, but i sensed a strong taste of metal. sans shoes, i tried to ride the bike home. i was slow and shaking. a kid threw a piece of fruit at me. a man laughed and yelled, "despierta, stupido!" what happened to me?

    Monkhouse: I want to go like my Dad did – peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    System: Fake news?? Trump's a Fake President, for God's sake.

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    Homer: I believe that children are our future. Unless we stop them now.

    Seam: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind.

    Well, at least you weren't on the bike when you blacked out--I remember being picked off my bike at the top of a hill climb as I was on my way down....
    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    Some, have been accused of worse.
