The craziest thing happened to me on Sunday.

So Saturday I went to my friend's house and left my bike unlocked in his lobby. I ended up drinking a lot at a bar a half a mile away from his house and didn't feel like picking up the bike.

Sunday, I went to my other friend's bar and I'm playing guitar outside and this old man came up to me and we started talking and he offers me a bike. I took the bike 'cause it's a better fit.

Monday, I get a phone call from my friend asking me if I picked up the bike from his place. I had not.

Apparently, my original bike was stolen the day before (Sunday).

So basically, I got a bike roughly around the same time mine was being stolen.

What are the chances of that happening?

Very odd.

yeah dude, that's some luck for your ass. Although, I remember a similar thing happened to me some years ago. In my case it was a laptop computer. I spent the night over a friend's house and left it there for two days thinking it was no big deal leaving it there - I could come back over at any time and get it, right? Most of the people in the apartment building where my friend lives was burglarized by a group of youths on a smash and grab run :soldier: . And my friend's place was one of them. I spent about $1200 or so of my hard earned money to get that thing and *poof*, gone.


But isn't it always the way......a crackhead :shiner: sauntering down the street goes, "pssst. you! i can sell ya a digital camera for...." I told him that i wasn't interested. Then he went, "hey, then how 'bout this playstation 2 - for you i'll take 80 bucks." "No thanks," I said. Then he whips out a sweet top of the line laptop (normally for about 2 to 3 thousand) for a ridiculously low price of price of $200. What? Why look a gifted horse in the mouf, right? Before I even bought it I asked him if I could check it out, turn it on and see if everything's in workin' order. Now any crackhead worth a two pennies :twocents: wouldn'tve let me check it out. Cuz if it was broke or password protected and useless, he would've gotten $200 smackers scott free! But he wuz a dam sucka.

Voila! So I got myself a brand new laptop, tax free :jig: . In the words of Wayne Campbell (Wayne's World), "Zang! :thumbsup: "

Somebody was visiting the arcade recently.

My personal favorite Bike song is by Floyd

I've got a bike, you can ride it if you like
It's got a basket a bell that rings and things to make it look good
I'd give it to you if I could but I borrowed it...

Bicycle! Bicycle!.......LOL :lol: That song will now and forever have a new meaning for me. Any1 see that crazy ass movie How High with rappers Method Man and Red Man in it? That bicycle song by Queen came on at a point in the movie when some dweeby jerkoff got his bike stolen and then it was ran over by about 3 or 4 cars, a mack truck, then the parts were scooped up by some local thugs driving by. :thumbsup: too funny.
