Watto's Junk Yard / Re: motorcycle
« on: January 15, 2004, 12:16 AM »
Nick's rock reminded me of the time a bumble bee hit me square in the visor.  Now a bumble bee is big, but not that heavy right?  No matter at 50 mph.  I was cruising along and whammo!  Big, fat bee hit me square in the visor, damn near knocked me off the bike and pushed my head back about a foot.  It broke the visor plastic (cracked).  I can't imagine if that thing had hit me in the face and stung me to boot.  

A friend of mine wore a 3/4 helmet with sunglasses and got hit near the eye by a bee while he was doing just about 50.  The thing left a mark on his face like he'd just been decked by Mike Tyson.

It could be that, or when he's holding the ring in Bag End, and calls it "My precious" in the scene with Gandalf after the party.

Here's what I can offer on the issue of safety...

-Protective gear.  Get some.  Get a good, full face helmet that's DOT or Snell rated.  After having a rock the size of a golfball hit the windshield of my car right in front of my face, there's no way I would ever wear a half or 3/4 helmet.  Also, get at least a tough leather jacket or a pretty well padded synthetic riding jacket.

-Take the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's Rider Course.  This course lasts 3 days, and teaches you all you need to know to ride a motorcycle safely.  It teaches you basic riding skills, the rules of the road for motorcycles, and strategies to avoid accidents and bad drivers.  You need to have a motorcycle learners permit to take the course.  If you complete and pass the riding and written tests of the MSF course, the DMV in your state will in most cases waive your road test, and issue your motorcycle license.

I'm very pleased all the way around on this wave.  Nice sculpts for certain.  The elbow articulation is new and different.  Nice additional touch there.

I'm bummed about one thing:  I was going to get Dermot Crowley to autograph a General Madine figure at a show in April, and now he's cancelled.   DRAT!

I've got my motorcycle license, but currently no bike.  I need to buy a home before I buy a bike just yet.

I don't have any idea how far I am through the game at the present.  But having a limited line of figures from KOTR would by cool.  Just Zaalbar and Mission Vao alone would be cool, along with the Sith Troopers.

Plastics can actually look really good.  Plexiglass has been around for ages, and looks pretty good.  In the UK I think they call it perspex, but it's all pretty much the same.  It's just a high qaulity, clear plastic that looks very similar to glass.

Well, these are toys.  How many things in the toy aisle are made of glass?

Glass would probably incur a severe safety/liability issue.  I've seen the pics at length, and the glasses are most likely plastic.

Yup, Gaborik is in 7.  You get the first white and variant I find.  Jeff gets the second, though he hasn't clarified if he wants both the reg and the variant.

Yes, I got my Jets Selanne.  Actually, I got several.  I have three on Avs cards and one on the proper Jets card that flounder from GH sent me.  I would happily take another on a Jets card, since that is the only one that will ever be made but at least I have one now.  

Brent, can you hook a brother up with a Jets Selanne?

I like the glasses.  I'm actually happy that they aren't glass, since my dishwasher destroyed my vintage BK glasses.

As for the figures, they are what they are.  I'm more excited about the glasses.

Well, there are 4 Wizard World shows in 2004.  The first is in Long Beach, CA in March.  There are also shows in Philadelphia, Chicago and Dallas later this year.
