    You're saying that for John and Mikeful and others who dived right into a new newbie thread a day or so ago?

    Except for the Detroit unicyclists. They might react by saying "What's a Volkswagen Polo?"

    Okay, that's probably only funny to me, a guy who became a unicyclist in Michigan. Also a bit of a car nerd; I used to see one VW Polo, driving the same route at the same time every day in the early 80s, with manufacturers' license plates (also a Michigan thing). I think they were testing the car for the American market, but I don't think they ever introduced it here.

    In the US it's states. In my world, those were New Jersey and Florida. Both states that had notoriously easy road tests, on private land instead of in real-world traffic. Sorry, people from those states. It doesn't mean you didn't learn to be a good driver, just that you didn't have to prove it on your test.

    I have a lot of unicycle T-shirts. A way lot. Like really a lot. Big plastic bins full. For the major conventions I go to (USA and IUF) I always get the shirt, even though, as Finnspin says, many of them aren't that good looking. I accumulate extras, which I end up giving away at other conventions, or as prizes at Muni Weekends. Hopefully to people that will appreciate them. Some are more memorable than others, such as the Greg Harper "I'm too sexy" shirt, with the one-piece bathing suit.

    I'm probably different than a lot of people on this forum, but I'm kinda over being "the unicycle guy". Unicycling has brought me to amazing places, taught me a lot, got me to know a lot of nice people and will continue to be a big part of what I do in my spare time. But I'd kinda like to not be known by everyone I meet as "the guy with the unicycle".
    I see what you mean and being the unicycle-guy is a bit like being the odd-one-out. At my office, they see me as the computer nerd, and frown upon my riding a unicycle. Outside of colleagues I don't have so many friends or a lot of contact with others, so I just ride alone on my uni in the forest, mostly in the more remote places where there aren't any forest strollers and only some mountain bikers. Being human shy and riding a unicycle are quite the opposites, but I can easily shut ppl out ^_^

    It would have been more fun if the car had crashed into another car. Then it woulda been a real UPD. Especially since it's a Belgian car. In NL, Belgians are seen as dangers on the road, simply buying their driver's license instead of passing for them. I reckon every country will have such a scape-goat neighbouring country, like Sweden is to Denmark.

    I think pictures can show more than words sometimes and point out how much of a uni-addicts we really are. For me I am just as hooked as I was when I started 3.5 years ago.

    There's a Unicoi state park here in Georgia, and every once in a while I'll see a t-shirt and be sure it's some unicycle convention souvenir. Unicon? No, that's not right...

    One UPD out of 282 attempts? Not bad

    I hope having an off-topic association spotting this license plate doesn't make me a sex addict

    As I was skimming BBC news i came upon this header. Before it dawned on me they meant "university", I had already clicked the link:
    'Iím a sugar baby to pay my way through uni'

    Such a disappointment.

    I suppose it depends on how toxicated you are. I once had drunk half a bottle of red port and was definitely not allowed to drive anymore, so I went to the store by unicycle to get another bottle. I didn't only feel light headed when riding, but light all over.
