    ​Very cool.
    MH: I want to go like my Dad did - peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    SS: COMPLACENCY IS LETHAL. VOTE in November.

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

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

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

    I was going to say airsoft gun as that is how I 'deal' with squirrels in my back yard but having seen this video I am second guessing my one size fits all approach to dealing with things.

    It's all fun and games until word gets out and your driveway becomes a BMX course for the rest of neighborhood kids.

    Before you know it, you'll be greeted by a middle finger the day you need to leave in your car and asks the crowd to move out of your way. Then, you yell at the kid, he runs home and his father comes back with his glock and shoots you in the face.

    Just another day in the suburbs.

    He's playing the long game... waiting until the kid gets tires that aren't hard rubber. As soon as he's pumping up the tires... the tacks come out !

    Well, that was very neighborly but not really helpful.

    My driveway has a slightly long incline and some of the neighborhood kids think its "the best". They blast down the driveway in all manner of wheeled kid friendly vehicles all the while laughing, screaming and making loud merriment while they pass under my bedroom window. I work grave yard shift and my bedtime is usually their playtime. So, yeah. I'm leaning towards the airsoft solution.

    I just (unfortunately) finished a 12-week leave from work (paid!) for bonding with our 2nd kid. Aside from helping the wife take care of the new kid, two of my main goals for the summer were to build planter boxes for the wife and get the 1st kid (4 year old) on 2 wheels. Mission accomplished on both, grueling but nothing quite so fun as watching a kid learn how to ride a bike.
