I know, I should be.

Only if you've been dropped on your head and don't have a life to lead!

Snow - not on ski slopes - sucks.  Sure, it's pretty, but then...

...well, and then it sucks. Until it melts and you can get outside again.

I didn't think to get the snowblower out of the back of the garage last night and didn't want to deal with that this morning so I just shoveled.  It was pretty dry and light here, 4 or 5 inches.

Darn right! You're in NEW YORK!  STEAL A FAT BIKE, like a man!

The only fat bikes in the city are electric fat bikes piloted by black teens, modified to go way faster than legally allowed, often ridden the wrong way on one-way streets while riders are not wearing helmets and generally showing no regard to other traffic, and with loud speakers lashed to them.  No thanks.

You're allowed to steal up to certain value legally now

Exactly.  I think RG is in the $1 - $100 range.  If he was over on Wall Street, it would be more in the $1 - $100,000,000 range.

Your city is a trip.

Modified?  They come unrestricted and remain unrestricted.  The cheapest ebike on the web has not a single limit on it.   

There are different laws in different areas, you know.  25 mph is the limit, and limiters on the bike are supposed to limit above that.  Maybe I am wrong about the limiter part, but thought that was the law.  

Anyway, you shouldn't have dumbfuckery running rampant at 40mph with no helmet and no motor vehicle training at the age of 14.  More than a nuisance here.

Law, schmaw!  What mechanism is in place in NYC or anywhere in the US to enforce ebike speed regulations?  Places like Europe may get away with it by having national or EU level reqs, but in the US, where it is granular at best, how would any authority figure out how to enforce such a dopey rule?

That cat should be smoking a cigar!

Looks like a super fluffy Maine Coon!

I was thinking it should have a smart phone or iPad in its hands. Doing an imitation of me.
