Default The moment gas bikes because obsolete

This was the moment the gas bike men first realized their bikes were obsolete

You can tell they're all gas bike men by looking at them

LOL! I just rewatched this for the first time in like 25-years this weekend; it was part of a Stanley Kuberick block on TCM. The visuals were beautiful, but I didn't remember it being so ponderous, pretentious, and unnecessarily goofy at times back then. Maturity? Calcifying brain? I gave up during the long-winded radio-dish repair scene. And what was with all the "eating" going on? The ape-guys chowing on pigs, and the moon-men having lunch on at least 3 different occasions in the first hour (before I bailed!). Did I miss some sort of deep "food message"?

I go ape for Lancelot Link! And monkey nuts for Mata Hairy.

Now I have to find a copy of these shows. I remember laughing my face off at this stuff. Thanks for the memory jog.

You know what's obsolete? Dead batteries after 20 minutes and I still have 3/4 left in my fuel tank. lol

My butt can't last long enough to run my battery dead. It takes all day, and by then you're more than happy to get off it for a while.

I'm sorry - ebikes just like the emotorcycles just dont do it for me. Same with hybrid cars. Half the fun is the hum of the motor. The sound of the revving and the obnoxiousness of a tuned exhaust. Internal combustion engines are just stupid fun

The only e-bikes I ever see are ones I whiz past on the road like they are standing still. I know there are some expensive e-bikes that can keep up with me but I never see any.
