    We need to come up with a way to save the poor iguana's

    So, I was thinking....

    If we were to build a fleet of the m/ebikes, we could charge the batteries up, and rig the rear wheel up to a generator. The generator could power some electric heaters. The electric heaters could be used to warm the poor iquana's up.
    It would be almost like perpetual motion.
    I am so freaking brilliant, I should be up for a Nobel prize.
    Er, I mean we as a group are so brilliant, we should all be up for prizes.
    Just think of the categories we could be nominated for.
    One just for the pure science
    One for the mechanical genius that is this collective group
    One for saving the iguana's ( I guess we have to keep the Unicorn oil and shark cartilage our little secret)

    Great ideas!!! one and all :)
    But remember... you're gonna need some sort of regulator or at least a heat limiting device otherwise...

    I've eaten rattlesnake, it tastes like chicken. Maybe lizard tastes like porkchops?

    There once was a girl from Tijuana

    Who loved to smoke marijuana

    But once she was high

    She would whimper and cry

    Until I let her pet my iguana...

    Nope, seriously like chicken, my oldest daughter had a friend that went on a mission somewhere in Central America and had some Iguana, didn't know what it was until after dinner. Said she ate it all the time after that...

    The only problem is that Iguanas bite when the heat makes them frisky. A little refrigeration will make them a bit more cooperative.

    I think we should act fast on behalf of the terrible too-coldened iguanas. They are bound to be on the front lines of our fight against insect borne illness which wreak certain havoc on our poor, young, and elderly! Think about all the unvaccinated children! They stand no chance to prosper because of popsicle iguanas! The burden of our very presence to inhabit this planet will be laid squarely, and solely on the frogs! What an insurmountable task ahead! QUICK! EVERYONE! We must make and sell FROG BONDS! Every able body citizen must buy frog bonds immediately! Those less able body citizens should start knitting little frog coats post haste!

    What the real big question is who is going to manufacture the 8 track players for the EM bikes?

    Also another big concern is the Cosmic Background Radiation has already slowed to the microwave frequency range. At some point we are going to have to contend with it in the FM band. If we hurry maybe we can make up some new FCC regulations that the universes will have to pay us for the bandwidth it will certainly start polluting. This should easily pay for our wonderful new insurance policies with money to spare. We could afford to venture into franchising the shark farming.

    The EM bikes will be self-riding so all you have to do is think about where you want to go and the EM bike will read your mind and take you to where you need to go. Electroencephalapalogic researchers have developed a high tech negative ion brain wave frequency modulating transducer that transfers brain wave activity into reality destinations. It utilizers no less than 43 ultra sensitive skeletal sensor pads inside the individually molded Head Trauma Reduction Device (HTRD). The biggest hurdle has been coming up with a better fastening system than what current motorcycle helmets use. In specific targeted focus groups, a vast majority of millennials experienced extreme difficulty in fastening the HTRD's while still being able to remain active on their social media devices. The suggestion of putting their devices down for 3-5 seconds to fasten the HTRD caused pandemonium and riots in several large municipalities. A state of emergency was declared and the National Guard from 3 countries had to be dispatched in to restore order. There were no casualties but several members of the elite force were treated for Post Traumatic Screaming Girls Syndrome (PTSGS). Senior testers in the 50-80 focus groups had no problems with the fastening system.

    Ok!!!! so I been a thinkin' on how to mass market these new fangled embikes.... or at least get them more to the forefront of peoples thinking... if that is possible ;)

    First we need to think along the manufacturing lines at more of a 'kit' type embike :) you know like a good ole Erector set... or lincoln logs... lego... that sort of thing!!! and then maybe cross it with one of the ole Motorific electric car sets if you remember them ;) once we get people buying these kits for their kids to play with it will have the same effect as putting the computers in school classrooms... everyone will want one :)

    Cold rum and mixed drinks will require extra absorbent Depends under garments.

    I think Depends advertising for occasional bladder leaks is missing the mark. If they really want to get to their target market a bolder ad campaign is in order.

    "Depends under garments... for your inner race horse!"

    Why is this relative you ask and I know you ask? Competition only models of the EM bike will come with custom Depends racing garments that virtually eliminate skid marks in the event of an accident.

    Who ever came up with the rules for spelling must have been some kind of twisted and deranged group who was just trying to &*^%$#@! with everybody else. Some examples, fridge is short for refrigerator so where did the d go? Was frige too short? It's important for the pronunciation of fridge but not for refrigerator where it should be equally important. In school you were always told i after e except after c. So how do they explain words like science and glacier? It's just plain wierd, sorry that's wrong, weird. Was there a secret agenda for the movie Weird Science to expose this deliberate fraud. Speaking of useful, how come it only has one l when full has 2 l's. Is useful only half full? How come useful has only one l but useless has two s's. Is useless a more important word and what's with the l in half? It's one of those ridiculous words with silent letters. What is the reasoning for silent letters other than to confuse the crap out of people. Is it part of some ancient mind control experiment gone horribly wrong? Why aren't all the conspiracy theorists chiming in on this? We need to get to the bottom of all this stultiloquence and poppycock!
