That was an awesome video!

Each mutagen vapor exposure includes a dice roll for reproductive genetic defects in your children.

Each engine start sprays them into a shared atmosphere which includes beings not offered an opportunity to consent accepting these cancer experiences and defective genetics life experiences.

Watching that reminded me of the way everyone used to ride bikes years ago. When I was a small boy I lived a few hundred yards from the entrance to the Martin Baker ejection seat factory. A few minutes after the hooter sounded to announce the end of the day shift, hundreds of people on bikes would come streaming out of the factory gates and down our road, like a horde of locusts.

Don't know if it was the same in other parts of the world, but here pretty much everyone rode bikes to work in the 1950's and early 60's, as cars were expensive and fuel (along with food and other luxury goods) was still rationed here for around ten years or so after the war.
Please ask questions on the forum, rather than by PM, as it helps others and you'll get a better range of answers.

And here is a modern day factory of one of the largest bicycle manufactures in Europe that not only took over Raleigh which is seen in Thud's video, but also electric bike frame makers Kalkhoff and Focus (both use Panasonic drive system)
