Yep, some great photography there.

I feel a pedantic urge to nitpick at one of the captions though, this one:

Biological analyst Alan Dowden of the Seattle Sperm Bank rides the Sperm Bike, a custom-designed, high-tech bicycle used to deliver donated sperm to fertility clinics in Seattle on November 8, 2011. (Anthony Bolante/Reuters)


That's not a custom designed bike, it's an off the shelf Larry vs Harry Bullitt cargo bike (high-tech is a bit arguable too, is e-assist enough to make a bike high-tech?). The only custom designed bit is the giant plastic sperm on the cargo tray, and that appears to basically be a novelty esky.

Still, it's a cool photo, and I want a Bullitt too (though no giant plastic sperm for me please, thanks :lol: ).

Naaah, a merge will be fine. (Yes, I remembered to head check and indicate :wink: )
