Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
HOW do you get on and/or off one of those bikes?
I picture a small crane, like they used to use to put a fully armored knight on his horse.
Wikipedia is your friend. :-P I actually looked these bikes up a while back, they're called "penny-farthings" and they preceeded the modern bicycle. Oh...knights never needed cranes to mount their horses; it's a (frustratingly) common but entirely mythical legend. Google it, if you dont believe me, lol. Now that I'm done being rude, this blog is awesome so far! I came here from bayourenaissanceman, Peter Grant's blog. God bless! :-D
Conveys the need for speed.Man was conceived with the notion that he had to go very fast.
Look up "Pennyfarthing" on youtube. Plenty of videos of how to ride one of these things... if you dare to try.
