What does all this mean for me? Well I certainly can't count myself as one of the great minds, with diagrams and thought experiments that have defined modern society named after me. But, I can claim to be clever, creative, and share their libido.
I can also lust for the world they lived in rather than the one they created. When the automobile, though in ascendance, had not yet taken everything over, and war was a romantic notion and had the virtue of bringing together the greatest minds to defeat a regime of hatred and disgust.
I've always been too weird for the normals, and too normal for the weirds, but I don't think anyone would call me middle of the road, more just swerving wildly, or doing loopty loops waiting for you to catch up.
I've found my partner to bike down this road with (l-omo) but we are social animals, as well as perverts, so grab your bike and come join us for a ride. Literally or figuratively.
