Everyone must watch Closer To The Edge.

Then the X-Files being, looking like some kind of blue-green Jackie Chan with Isabella Rossellini lips and breath that reeked of vanilla Chig Champa,
did a slow-mo Matrix descent out of the butt end of the banana vessel and hovered above my bug-eyes, my gaping jaw, and my sweaty L. Ron Hubbard upper lip and all I could think was: "I hope Uncle Martin here doesn't notice that I pissed my fuckin' pants."

^^ what he said, freaking awesome film/documentary!

Remember when you used to be able to ring someone 57 times and they'd never know it was you?

Yeah. Good times.

I Ride: something naughty
its like anything .....it looks great and scary when you watch it on dvd or the net
but until you see the speeds they do going past you ....with your own eyes standing within a couple of feet through sections of road that usually are 30mph .....its indescribable ....these guys have the biggest set of bollocks....over any motorcycling racer on the planet.....

While I think this race looks pretty amazing...that stat alone makes it sound pretty stupid.

on average. not every race.

237(number of deaths) / 92(number of "events" or races) = 2.57608696
