Turn the bars hard right in the sand at 136. It'd be a short stoppie but one to remember.

I see that you are aware that the revisionist history taught in our schools is a load of BS. Congratulations on being among the few with a true perspective on American history. You are of course right about Abe and FDR, but you'll have to admit that the Bush administration is currently in third place and vying for one of the top positions. VWW

Hmmm... being hated by the krauts and the frogs is not exactly a shining badge of honor. After all, them guys invented internal combustion engine and V-2 motor. Of course even worse would be to pi$$ off the entire Arab population but nobody would be foolish enough to make that mistake, would they.

Is it a legal stoppie when you finally come to a stop about 100 yards away from the bike?



What's the official ruling on this?

With the growth of fascistic ideas that more and more dominate both major political parties I'd guess they may actually be saying that before too many more decades are out.

Of course at any give point of time you can find people who hate America. Or Sweden, or Germany for that matter. Its just that nowadays the old lady from the flower shop regards the US as the evil empire. You guys may have some PR issues here.

No, instead we should bury our heads in the sand and let the anti-west sentiment grow to even more horrifying proportions. Perhaps like the less than sterling Arab governments who permit this chaos to secure their own fortunes. We should "reason" with fanatics, murderers and thugs, correct? And did we forget the Europeans are not innocent in the development of the current mid-east situation? France was one of the most assertive colonial powers of the 19th and 20th century (Algeria, Morocco, Africa, Pacific-Rim, etc.) Maybe you're not aware that they also essentially created the situation in Viet Nam. Most people aren't even aware that it was a French colony and that the French committed unspeakable atrocities there––like slaughter and real torture. And they have the nerve to condesend to us. What a joke.



Turns out they're afraid of there own Muslim population, too. And you see how well the election in Spain worked out. How 'bout another beheading?

I don't have to admit it... I've already shouted it from the roof of my house.



If a democrat was president when the un-patriot act was passed, the republicans would be screaming for revolt. But it was an elephant..



Republicans don't mind giving up liberty, as long as their team gets to keep power.



idiots.

Here I looked it up in the Official Squid Handbook(rev. '04)

"As long as you're on the bike while it's stopped with the back wheel in the air it's a legal stoppie.

Rifleing yourself into the sand afterwards is a face-plant, but bonus points are awarded for distance"
