Global Warming plusses

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' started by hornet, Sep 18, 2007.

  1. We've discussed Global Warming ad nauseum here, and the doom and gloom merchants are formulating government policy faster than secretaries can type. But think of the up-side.

    More and warmer days mean that even people who can't usually get any more than a few months of the year for riding, will have heaps more opportunity to ride.

    Round-the world adventurers will have fewer rivers to traverse, limiting the loss of gear and even bikes.

    You won't have to own tons of wet-weather gear; leathers or textiles will be all you'll need.

    Of course, the makers of heated hand-grips, wet-weather gear and such might go out of business, but that's the price of progress, baby :LOL:.
  2. Hey Paul, global warming means more cyclonic weather for us! So Wollongong will be like Cairns. :grin: :grin:
  3. Trips to the beach won't take as long! :grin:
  4. if there is a beach to go to hahaha :LOL: :LOL:

    ok ill go back to my corner and behave :oops:
  5. Most of the town where I went to high school will be under water.

    Result :grin: :grin: :grin: .
  6. I'll be owning house with prime beach frontage :twisted:
  7. Which brings us back to...

    "Trips to the beach won't take as long!"
  8. No more mowing the lawn???
  9. But I just bought a new ride-on!! [​IMG]
  10. I'm just about to run out and buy shares in air conditioner manufacturing companies!

  11. Pros
    No welding ever needed - just leave steelwork outside for a day then push together to fuse together.
    New high tech tyres to resist heat (and burnouts).
    Smaller rainwater tanks = more room for new shed of gigantic proportions.
    Less rainy days = more riding days.

    More sunburn = less bikini-clad girls
    Our helmets will need air conditioning.
    Our helmet would melt, so must be made of steel = heavy!!
    Those of us who are poor cannot afford hot bitumen resistant tyres.
    Bikes will need to be heavier to overcome cyclonic conditions..

    etc etc
  12. Fit it with a snorkel - use it to cut the seaweed.
    Or fit it with some pontoons and modify the cutting blade a little and you've got yourself an amphibious vehicles.
  13. Some 44" mud tyres should do the trick! :wink:
