Also, i just bought my first mountain bike.
I didnt know they made recumbent mountain bikes. (Blue fonted)
I’m not an engineer. Aren’t they the only ones who ride recumbents? I think you meant a trike.
A trike. Yes indeed.

How fitting that life's first and last modes of self-propelled vehicle movement are the same.

When you need a diamond-shaped blue pill (or a chemically-equivalent round white one). Note: it works quite well.

I'd like to I told you so this post. I saw a 25 year old with a FRIENDS tattoo on his forearm. He was 12 when the finale aired at most. Crazy.

Also, White Claw is absolutely killing it with the 20s scene.

Love me some White Claw, though I can't quite tell if I'm drunk or not. Fun summer drink though, [expletive] it. There's a Portland one that is pretty good that my local booze shop carries, SeekOut, which is made by Two Towns Cider from Portland. The kids ain't drinking that there?

People love seltzer, are often doing a low carb or low sugar diet, and are tired of overpriced, tedious cocktail culture. It's similar to the PBR phenomena of 2005-ish but with less carbs.

Not sure who's watched any of the FBE/React videos on YouTube, but I watched teens reacting to 90s music the other day, and after hearing "American Woman" by Lenny Kravitz (and not having a clue who the singer was), one of the kids said, "Oh, that's Zoe Kravitz's father!"
