    - Fess up. Explain the Chicken. Are you one of Them?

    - Provide a brief anecdote about Detroit that tells us something about the town

    - So you registered on Cyburbia 9 years ago and only recently started posting in the FAC (and introduced a very fun and popular thread in the process) what's up with that? Did they change your medications?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    You're gonna be disappointed

    Which was your favorite National Parks that you have visited ? Is Grand Canyon a National Park? Bryce Canyon? One of those, I guess.
    Which National Park do you want to visit ? Meh. Not really on my radar.

    Where you ever a Scout ? No. I was a Scout dad/some kind of troop leader thing (not that main Scoutmaster, not smart enough for that)
    Ever go to summer camp ? Yes, three times as an adult leader with my sons' troops.

    Do you like Reuben Sandwiches ? Ew.
    what is is your favorite side dish ? Coleslaw. Not if it's old and vinegary though.

    What do you know about the Rail-to-Trails ? That we don't do enough of that in Fort Worth. Adams, MA, has a nice one though.
    Did you ever have a String-Ray bike ? Actual brand name one? No. Cheap knockoff? Yes.
    What make & model car do you drive ?

    Fiat 500 by doohickie@ymail.com, on Flickr
    Which do prefer - downhill or cross-country skiing or snowshoeing ? No.

    Who is cooler - police, firefighter, paramedic or ski patrol ? Firefighter

    Have you had any NIMS training ? No idea what that stands for.

    Ever have a stress echocardiogram ? Yes.
    Ever had GERD ? Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Yes.

    Favorite ice cream flavor ? Avoca Moca, available only at Melt Ice Creams in Fort Worth

    - Fess up. Explain the Chicken. Are you one of Them? You want the real explanation? It was my birthday and someone made me wear the hat. It wasn't mine, I just wore it that one night. A friend who's a talented photographer took the pic at a bar with some neat lighting. It's been my avatar/profile pic ever since.

    - Provide a brief anecdote about Detroit that tells us something about the town. Go Red Wings. That is all.

    - So you registered on Cyburbia 9 years ago and only recently started posting in the FAC (and introduced a very fun and popular thread in the process) what's up with that? Did they change your medications? I've nibbled at the forum before, just without much enthusiasm. I was really just a fan of Dan's Virtual Cheektowaga (my hometown), especially the Lawn Ornament Gallery. Those sites have been lost to server crashes I think, but some of the content may be available on the Wayback Machine archive. I found Dan kind of ran this place so I registered to stalk him I guess. I wasn't very gung-ho about it. I have no city planning experience above the trivial but I have a few friends that are planners and architects. I am a bit interested in bike infrastructure. My favorite city employee is the planner in charge of bike & pedestrian infrastructure. When I first joined here, the bike was still hanging in the garage, but I've started riding again. Riding is significantly different than when I was a kid, what with MUPs and vehicular cycling and such. I'm sorry, what was the question again?

    Star Wars or Star Trek? Tough one. I guess Wars.
    Kirk or Picard? It. Has. To. Be. Kirk.
    What super power would you want to have? A comfortable retirement.

    [/smacks with back of hand] Such impudence! WE are the ones asking the questions here!

    - Favorite book you read in high school?

    - if someone accused you of being a nerd/geek what is the most damning evidence that could be brought against you?

    - Did you cry when Old Yeller got shot?

    - You're stranded alone on a desert island, what book do you wish would wash ashore?

    - Favorite book you read in high school? I don't recall having a favorite. It's kind of a long time ago.

    - if someone accused you of being a nerd/geek what is the most damning evidence that brought against you? Pictures of me in grammar school with tape holding my glasses together.

    - Did you cry when Old Yeller got shot? OMG SPOILER. Now I can't watch the movie. Darn you to heck.

    - You're stranded alone on a desert island, what book do you wish would wash ashore? A full-sized popup book about rafts.

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Favorite state in the union/why? Texas I guess since I live here.

    Least favorite state/why? New Jersey - the highways suck.

    How many blue shirts do you own? - 4.384

    Best thing you've seen while riding your bike? My wife's derriere.
    Worst? A guy fall off his bike and almost lose his eye to the end of the handlebar.

    Do you ever get a group of cyclists together and ride down the middle of the street just to laugh at the cars stuck behind you? No. Believe it or not when we ride in groups we try to be as civil to the drivers as we want them to be to us.

    Best city for bikes? I've heard Minneapolis is good. Never been there.
    Worst? Keller, TX
