Kid at my school: "That's for babies!" (referring to unicycle)

My reply: "If so, you must be able to do it."

Kid: "I can do it, but I'm not gonna show ya!"

Oops! Sorry for the repeated post, but it never said it was posting, but I guess it did!

What's odd is that when I try to delete the posts, it says I don't have permission.

I've been getting garbled grunts and squawks alot lately. I will go by and someone will just say, "UUHHNNGG", or "oooMMMBBBB", or "AwwKKK," as if they are so mystified they are no longer able to speak coherently. Somehow, it's better than the ones who can speak coherently and yet say all the things I've heard for the last 40 years or so.

Greg, all things considered have you given any thought to this having to do with some aspect of you other than your unicycling?

Yes. I have done the corelation study. I get no comments on my bicycle other than, "even Raphael Lasar could ride THAT!"

They overestimate my abilities.

Being currently wheeless, my current comments have mostly been from friends saying either "Where's your wheel?" or "Man, I'm seeing unicycles all over the place now!" To which I do a Burns-ish finger movement whilst saying "Excellent..."

We did that one as a cartoon in the On One Wheel back in 1983. It showed a guy riding a giraffe, and a litle kid on the ground saying something like "Hey, can you really ride that?" The guy on the giraffe just has a grim expression on his face.

Yesterday I got the very common kid question "How do you *do* that?" As I was passing by I just said "Like this!"

Riding on my 20", using my 26" ultimate wheel as a steering wheel, you get a lot of people looking strange at you..

A comment i got was "Oh my god! Using the spare wheel for steering? Clever thinking!"

I say hello to allmost everybody i meet, and i do a couple of circles once in a while, just to show it's working properly!

I had one kid say, "Mommy, (while I was riding) she CAN'T ride that!! He seemed quite upset that I was interfering with his understanding of reality.
