I just got back from my sisters college she goes to depaw university in indiana it was alot of fun partying and whatever... but they do this thing with all the students they just started like a month ago. They have 75 public bikes to use, they are like the old school looking bikes with the big handle bars but not banna seats or the ghetto ones... Every frat and sorority and other clubs got to decorate them and now they are open for all students. So if you have to go to class and while you are walking you find one then you can use it to go to class and you just park it outside of the building but then people take it while you park it.. it is like finders keepers untill your done with them. it was amazing and a ton of fun... i was just wondering if other colleges do this, or if any one has heard of this.
that's awesome! what a good idea. i'd love to have my bike here at my school but i have no place to keep it, so having a bike i could just use if i found would be awesome. but then the school would have to worry about keeping all the bikes in good condition so no one gets hurt and sues, and they'd have to worry about people hoarding them. if it worked out, that idea would be amazing.

You know what these are? These are my new fucking skis.
You know what that means? I'm getting some fucking pussy tonight.

happened in a city in germany somewhere a while ago.
they were all painted yellow, but then people just started taking them home and painting them instead of leaving them for other people to use. bit too large scale to work effectively.
They used to have this in Crested Butte, they were "cow bikes" painted like a cow, it was ruined by stupid tourists who thought all townie bikes were public property, and everyone was getting thier own bike jacked
A perfect example of why socialism doesn't work...tragedy of the commons.
the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace things, but burn like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue center light pop and everybody goes "AWWW!"
