Bicycling Mag: The $134 Miracle Bike.

Should probably have solid tires. For comparable ‘improvement in lives’, dig around and see what bicycles did for women in the late 1800’s. One could, squinting a bit hard, credit bicycles with the suffragette movement.

Gawker: Iranians Sentenced to Six Months, 91 Lashes for Dancing to “Happy”.

Can we talk about implementing a worldwide “Prime Directive” now? Between IS and this. Those who want to go back in time and be medieval, well ... they can be medieval. Noone in the modern world does business with them. No arms. No supplies of food. No internet. No health advances. You break with the modern world, the modern world cuts you off until you choose to rejoin it. Enjoy the dentists.
