I'm a kind of cyborg when I'm on my bike?
Now there's something to think about...
...But not now...
...I need sleep.
Kiz, the sleepy guy

If you fall asleep on your bike do you dream of electric sheep

...or maybe just uncomfortable...
DelphicOracle Posted Jan 25, 2000
Maybe you should try going to bed at a reasonable hour. That way, you wouldn't be a road accident waiting to happen...
Schweitty Posted Jan 25, 2000
Or perhaps you could just slepp-bike like some people sleep-walk. I know a couple people who sleep-drive and are actually a lot better at it when they're sleeping...

If he falls asleep on his bike he's a cyborg. Any science fiction fanatic knows that only androids dream of electric sheep.
For a good movie on androids, cyborgs, and AIs, check out 'Ghost in the Shell'. It's anime, but better than most. The main characters think they are cyborgs but wonder if they have crossed the line into being androids. There is also an AI and humans who have had their brains hacked to mix things up a bit. You'll have to watch it a few times to catch everything (something always gets lost in the translation).

He will awaken broken-legged in a field being savaged by real sheep...
Jazz Posted Jan 25, 2000
The saddle on my bike is too hard for anyone to fall asleep on.
Sheep and my Nan
Camp_Freddy Posted Jan 26, 2000
I think sheep maul rather than savage. . .also if my gran has a hip joint replacement, is she a cyborg? That would be quite a strange claim to make to my friends!!
Sheep and my Nan
Kumabear Posted Jan 26, 2000
I just thought that savage had a better "ring" to it.
What does your Nan have to do with this?
Kiz Posted Jan 27, 2000
And why would I fall asleep on my bike?
Kiz, in need of caffine
sugarJunkie Posted Jan 27, 2000
Technically your nan is a cyborg although the word is usually reserved for more drastic alterations.
Kumabear Posted Jan 27, 2000
Yes, I agree. She is a cyborg. Unfortunately cyborgs have a tendency to run amok.
Schweitty Posted Jan 28, 2000
I've fallen asleep on my bike many times... But then again I don't have any brakes anyway, so I always tend to run into thing regardless of whether I'm awake Perhaps that would explain all the concussions etc.
Ahh... who cares?
Kiz Posted Jan 28, 2000
Well, she may well be planning on running amok next week and is just feigning disablity until that time.
But don't trust me, I'm a loony.
sugarJunkie Posted Jan 28, 2000
Cyborgs have the tendency to catch you off guard. She may look old and frail but just remember never to turn you back on her.
Kumabear Posted Jan 28, 2000
I have noticed that before an attack the smell of gear oil tends to hang heavy in the air. In the older models anyway.
