    Cycling past the gym tonight, I saw a bloke with one arm going in with a table tennis bat in his hand, and I thought "go on, my son.".

    I started thinking about stuff I'd carry around, but I thought it would be more interesting the stuff you could actually get away with.

    Like slapping people round the back of the neck at bus stops, and when they turn round it would be 50% less likely it was you.

    We have a one-armed cyclist near Swindon, who seems to do OK.

    We sometimes pass him on CTC rides. One day the ride leader remarked, "how does he fix a puncture?" and I still don't know.

    Put the wheel between his legs !
     
  4. Somewhere, somewhere, I have a clip of a guy in India who sits at the roadside fixing punctures...he has no arms. Very adroit.

  7. OK sorry - it's a Chinese website ergo difficult to read:wacko: - but here are some stills which give the gist of what I was talking about. Apologies to all Indian puncture repairers...it was an 'armless mistake;)

    It would be a pleasure to have my tube/s rectified by that man - such skill.

    Everyone who buys a new tube should be disgusted with themselves.
     
  9. www.newtube.com - it's an over-inflated website IMO (oops! it's a 'live' one :¬) )

    seen the monkey fellas who can control a robotic arm on the news?
    that'll be the next big thing.

    Before long people will be able to have various useful implants AS WELL as their arms. For isntance, a tin opener, screwdriver, pen, etc.
     
  14. It's simpler just to carry a Swiss Army knife. Although it'll probably be illegal soon.:biggrin:

    Have you ever played table tennis? Do you think a one-armer would be more streamlined or less balanced?
