We have all manner of machines that help us get from Point A to Point B. Most of us have traveled in automobiles and jet airplanes. Some of us have traveled in less than conventional vehicles (hot air balloons, sleds, roller skates, etc).
What is the most unusual mode of transportation you have used/seen/heard of? Do you have any ideas for inventing a new mode of transportation? Weren’t Segways supposed to change the world? What’s up with that? Â Fall is approaching in the Northern Hemisphere, should we plan a Skepchick hayride?
Last weekend,Â Sam,Â Bug Girl, and Maria went surfing. Late in the day,Â theÂ three friendsÂ settled on the beach for many many beers, and began a lengthy discussionÂ about who was the smartest of the group. Maria chose Bug Girl. Bug Girl chose Sam. AndÂ SamÂ choseÂ Maria, but secretly,Â they each thought theyÂ were the smartest.Â
AfterÂ two cases ofÂ beer,Â theÂ surfing SkepchicksÂ began to ramble, and thenÂ one by one, fell asleep.
WhileÂ the friendsÂ slept, three sea gulls — one above each personÂ — completedÂ the digestive process, and droppedÂ aÂ gift on each ofÂ the sleeping surfer’sÂ forehead. The gullsÂ then flew off with a noisy squawk.
The noiseÂ stirred the Skepchicks. As soon asÂ they looked at each other,Â they allÂ simultaneously began to laugh. Then,Â Bug GirlÂ abruptly stopped laughing. Why?
