when you're 38, wake up and sit upright really fast at 6am, you fart really REALLY loud.


And it hurts.

entering 856 mobile phone numbers into excel takes about 6 hours... screwing up... six hours... fixing the problem? 1 hour

It's even worse if you're a bloke and unlucky with the err.... positioning.

LOL (AT) Missy!

I can say with authority that landing on one's clacker on the saddle doesn't hurt anywhere near as much as landing on one's clacker on the top tube. I did this once when I stopped midway up a steep hill to catch my breath. I was in the easiest gear. When I set off to start the climb again, I put as much force as I could into turning the crank. Of course, the bike was in super-easy gear and the pedal turned much easier than expected. I fell straight onto the top tube and saw stars. I also very nearly clipstacked as a result. :oops:

You have a good point, however I read somewhere that the only pain worse than (err how do I say this nicely....) testicular trauma is childbirth.
From most discussions when this comparison has been raised both the males and the females tend to agree...

= "clackstack" :?:

4WDs have a bull-bar. My bike has a similar device, runs from the head tube to the seat tube. It's called a "ball-bar".
