DVDave: Magorn: mtbhucker: I like how subby ripped off Colbert from last night. Subby is bad and should feel bad.

Is subby, didn't watch Colbert or actually read the article, but it's a pretty obvious joke


Son, come and sit here for a spell 'cause I got some hard truths to tell ya. Now I've been a Farker for a little while and gotten a few green lit submissions now and again, so I'm sorry to be the one to have to tell you this, but sometimes, just sometimes mind you, headline writers take a few liberties with the actual content of the article for comedic effect. The might say something that's not, shall we say, 100% factually accurate, just so's they can make a better joke. Now admittedly such folks are lower than a polecat's belly and twice as ornery, but sad to say, in this imperfect world we live in, they do tend to get rewarded with green lights more often than not.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: How is a paper bike that will deteriorate over time cheaper in the long run than a metal one that will last forever?



That information is proprietary.

Now SHUT UP AND INVEST!

I don't know what the weight limit on it is, but I bet it's not American-proof.

Gyrfalcon: Snargi: Hey subby, try reading TFA before making your witty headline.

"In testing the durability of the treated cardboard, Gafni said he immersed a cross-section in a water tank for several months and it retained all its hardened characteristics."

Yeah, that's what he says. He also says he uses a "secret organic formula" to keep it waterproof and fireproof.

Forgive me if I'm skeptical of anything that's so perfect and yet so secret, at least until the secret is revealed. If it's revealed that the organic formula is in fact a hydrocarbon-based polymer, well, then having a cardboard bike won't have gained us anything, will it?

Nobody pointing out the non-irony? It's made out of cardboard, not iron.

factoryconnection: It is almost as if some Farkers don't, and I know this is crazy, but hear me out... they don't read the articles.

Metal bikes don't deteriorate over time? There's no such thing as rust, weld fatigue, et cetera? Wow, my materials classes in college were all wrong.

It is almost as if some Farkers don't, and I know this is crazy, but hear me out... they don't read the articles.
