Deer are bad around here for hanging out on roads while I'm riding. I've had several close calls over the past few years. They always seem to pop up when I'm riding downhill going 25+ mph.

The saddles on the old 90's Trek road bikes crack me up. They look like saddles that are currently available for comfort bikes. But the rest of the bike looks great, IMO.
