Otters' shrinking genitals cause fertility scare

Men's fertility could be at threat from chemicals in our everyday environment, scientists have claimed after discovering a "worrying" rate of shrinkage in otter's penises.

While shrinking penises are scary, the possible efforts to compensate are truely worrying.

5. Don't have a gun.

I have a 5000 dollar bicycle.

Does that count??

(Lost my taste for guns in 1970. Really great Japanese steel is a different matter....)

A cheap Surly Ogre frame, Rohloff hub in the rear, Mavic A-719 rims, SUN generator front hub, LED lights run front and aft off the front hub, a charger run off the hub for my iPhone, Surly racks front and rear, ARKEL touring panniers front and rear, a Sierra Designs Dridown sleeping bag, a Henry Shires Tarptent Scarp 1, Integral Designs E-Vent bivy sack, a Thermarest 4 season sleeping pad, variable cooking gear, Shower's Pass E-Vent rain gear, wool jerseys and tights....and bike shorts.


And a fifth of really good vodka every other day. And maybe some Rogue Brewery Dead Guy ale.

Just finished a trip down the west coast with this rig. Perfect.

15. WOW!

I like how the cost of the booze is included in the bike price.

I knew a guy who biked all the way down to the tip of South America and back, years ago. Amazing. And when I was in college we had this guy show up who had built a sheet metal horizontal little house on his bike he could sleep in. That was cool.
