    Default Fess up!

    Okay, who's playing with robots on their commute? Cargo bike, eh? Hmmmm.

    I read on the interwebs that the guy that did that should be flogged. Having fun while riding a bike should be criminalized. :P

    Arlnow is up in arms that this bicyclist was endangering him/herself - but who cares. I am personally blown away at the Rock'em Sock'em design permanency. Much like the age-old adage regarding "building a better mousetrap," I think it will be years before we see any substantive advances in the field of plastic robot pugilism.

    Actually I kinda like where the Arlington Now conversation went. There are always gonna be people who don't get it and poo poo everything. Some people got upset. Some people got a laugh. I got a laugh out of some of the reactions.

    A huge percentage of ArlNow commenters are habitual cranks who post all day, every day. I'd take anything they say with a huge grain of salt. I've gotten to the point where I just read the stories via an RSS reader, and avoid the negativity altogether.

    ...which means I have no idea what you all are talking about, and I'm not going to ruin my day by going and reading the comments.

    I know all about the Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots, though!

    ..and another thing - I've ridden with Pete, and he does not need any stinkin' robots to endanger himself!

    You got that right, although I have to admit to commenting on ARLnow too, on occasion. But I swear I'm not one of the cranks!

    The cranks inspire me.
