On Transportation

Having lost the car temporarily, I consider transportation alternatives. This being a wonderful world of freedom of choice, you can choose any vehicle you want, provided it's either a car or a motorcycle. Personally, I think a lot of people would be better off with a motorcycle - look around the street when driving and check just how many cars have more than one person in them. (May vary according to time and location.) But motorcycles are, of course, associated with breaking bones and various other gruesome incidents, not at all related to the fact car drivers and motorcycle drivers do not respect each other at all.

So, the alternatives are a four-seat gas-guzzling monster (All cars are gas guzzling monsters. Take a moment and consider how much you spent on gas last month.) or a two-wheel frame designed to rub your body against hard surfaces. (And don't even think of getting a Vespa or similar less road-racing bike. We don't want you to look STUPID now, do we? What will the other drivers THINK?)

Maybe I'll buy a helicopter.
