    I only have cheap old rusty bikes. I'm likely to get a new shiny one now. I do use it a lot, and hence feel that it would be a justified purchase.

    It's not worth claiming on my insurance, as the value is not much above my excess and my premiums would go up.

    I have always joked that I could be the reincarnation of Duane Allman. We are both Blues based guitarists and love southern rock and Eric Clapton etc. We also have the same birthday! I was born on November 20th 1998 he was born on November 20th 1946 he is 52 years older then me. We also share the same birthday as Joe. I also share a birthday with my cousin. He is exactly 18 years older then me.

    I hope your old bike is found, or you're able to get a new one, AT.

    Have any of you ever taken an exam that you just knew you wouldn't do well on, but by some miracle, you did do well?

    I had my first U.S. history exam this past Thursday, which covered everything from the beginning of human existence to right before Jamestown was settled. This isn't my area of expertise, except for the very tail end of the test. I barely studied for the test; I barely got any sleep the night before, and I arrived 15 minutes late for the test due to lack of sleep. I just knew I would flunk the test. After doing the test, I told myself "if I get C, I'll be happy." I was the last one to turn in their test, and I told my professor that I thought I'd bombed the test. (I'm a history major, so just picture how horrible that would sound.) I actually didn't finish the test at the end of the class period, but due to my disability, I'm allowed extra time. My professor had confidence in me; he thought I did fine.
    Well, I got my grade this afternoon, and made a 100 (150/150 points possible). Needless to say, my jaw dropped when I saw my grade. I'm still not sure if my professor didn't make a mistake while grading. There were 2 extra credit questions I know I answered correctly. I really shocked myself on that one, in a good way.

    That's great Kim!!! I had that happen quite often and some I studied for but still thought I would do badly. The worst was the standardize tests we had to do to graduate high school. I was so nervous I was going to fail but passed them all first try (they've also changed a lot since I took them over 15 years ago).
