Bicycle projects galore

Since the end of the Tour de France I’ve been catching up on my day job. Here are several bike projects that should keep you busy for a while.

Suicide is no solution

Your horoscope: If you’re feeling down and depressed and want to kill yourself, please don’t use the train. It inconveniences thousands of people and we’re not going to feel too kindly about your problems. Call a friend. If your friends aren’t sympathetic, find new friends. If you can’t find a friend, call a hotline or a mental health help line.

Jumping in front of a train just to make your girlfriend feel sorry for you only proves your ridiculous narcissistic selfishness in your so-called relationship. She doesn’t exist just to serve your needs alone. She is not responsible for your happiness and well-being. Relationships are a two-way street requiring selflessness, sacrifice, and more empathy than your tiny frog brain is capable of.
