Why in the heck does one feel the need to stand up in a canoe to take their top off?  And then get mad as I paddle by laughing hysterically because they lost their balance and fell head-first out of the canoe?

That is indeed funny.  Some years back I was passing a golf course off of I70 in MD.  I happened to glance over and saw a golfer situated near a very large ditch, his golf bag perched precariously near the edge.  As I passed by it tilted and fell over into the ditch.  I nearly ran off the road laughing so hard.  BTW, I'm not a golfer.

I went for a nice long ride yesterday, perfect temps (lower 70s) and crystal clear skies. I'm heading home and pull in behind a car on a two lane road. I'm thinking about passing the car but he speeds up to 70 and I settle in behind him. I check my mirrors and see a bike some distance behind me. Hmmmm, where did he come from as I didn't see him when I pulled out. In a moment I find out why I didn't see him. I'm doing 70 as is the car in front of me when the bike passes us like we're going backwards! We're in a no passing zone on a hill but that didn't matter to the person on the bike! He/she passed so quickly that I couldn't even tell what kinda bike it was, some kinda sportbike is all I could tell. The dude must have been going at least 150 in traffic!  :o Insane!
