    Apart from World Peace... Wishes for 2014?

    Since we seem hell-bent on chasing our tails continually and losing sight of the desire for World Peace, what else that may be more realistic would you like to see in 2014? Not necessarily for us all, but in your life?

    Personally, I would like for Coke to stop making ads that include ridiculously pristine-white and stupidly happy Polar Bears, and for MTBR to do something about the reset when you scroll down in the forum list. It seems that just as I am about to hit the Off-Camber link, the screen resets and I have to scroll down a second time... Those Little Things!!!
    It's all Here. Now.

    I think there has actually been a motion picture made now with those exact polar bear characters!

    World peace would ultimately bring humanity together as a whole. It's just about the answer to all the trouble here on Earth.

    This world is never going to see peace until it eradicates the humans from it's surface.

    Idealism is ideal, but realism is real. Humans are just not very peaceful mammals.

    Yes, that is my hope because like I said before, it would solve many if not most of the problems that are tied in.

    Hawg, given your status in the universe, can't you just "blink your eyes" and make it happen?

    Brakes that will stay adjusted and not require annual bleeding? I've never bled the brakes in my Honda and it has 118,000 miles. My Avids? Weekly cleaning, monthly adjusting and yearly bleeding.

    That's because you are not putting as many miles on your bike as you are on your Honda, annually.

    a life in the loam (on a dialled ride) with good folk to shred about with
    and to build a grand table in which to sit, drink and be merry and to tell of tales about shred
    perhaps a castle around that table...

    Just a few off the top of my head:

    1. A cure for cancer.
    2. Every existing and future child predator is instantly vaporized, ŕ la War of the Worlds, upon their next lewd thought.
    3. An end to violence against women. Similar consequences as #2 above.
    4. An end to animal cruelty. Similar consequences as #2 above.
    5. Etc.
    6. My aging father, in the early stages of dementia, does not forget his grandchildren before he passes.
    7. San Diego pulls its head out of its ass on the issue of accessible open space and recreational trails.

    I want a puppy.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    Regarding #7 RW, I did mention these should try to be realistic?!?

    A random ninja rampage every week.
    A suitcase full of money gets thrown out of a random highrise office building in every major city every day.
    Star Wars speeder bikes and light sabres.

    After reading aerius' wishlist, I'd like to add the following for my own personal needs:

    An Elfin made sword that glows blue when the Ork Trolls show up here to start trouble.
