Addiction 2021.3

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Sorry, don't want to bring anyone down. Just thinking about this stuff a lot lately.
Don't bring me down.

How about some late 70s action, Poison Ivy on guitar. Music doesn't start 'til somewhere in the middle of this film.

It's bigger, so the runner doesn't tangle with the defender.

You're offered $50,00.00 but if you accept it, the person you hate the most in the entire world gets $100,000.00. Are you taking it?

"Why would I not accept it? I could use $150,000.00"
because that ass**** doesn't deserve it!
