Riding Bikes Keeps Me Young

Well, all of a sudden there’s a little bit of a scientific study that I must admit, I quite like the results of:

“Riding motorcycles helps keep riders young by invigorating their brains, the scientist behind popular “Brain Training” computer software said on Wednesday, citing a new scientific study.”

In truth, any biker probably knew that inherently all along…

“The group that rode motorbikes posted higher marks in cognitive function tests”

Yes indeed, the perfect excuse to head out on the ‘blade tomorrow. Rockstar, Hacker, Biker. My identity fits like a glove.

It Takes A Whole Recession To Stop that Ugly Bastard.

News of the week is that Chrysler are *at last* going to stop making that most awful and ridiculous of cars –  the PT Cruiser. I can’t believe the world economy had to go into a harrowing downward spiral before they stopped making this ghastly thing. Then again, the car did have a large following in the “impractical-zero-common-sense-hood-gangsta-almost-bling” department. Personally, I wouldn’t call it bling. Bling is a Ferrari F340. Bling is a black 1967 Chevy Impala. The PT Cruiser, is, well, take a look at the picture, puke-a-rific.

Thank goodness the world came to its senses and forced a recession on itself just to stop Chrysler from making this abomination.
