    Che Guevara's bicycle

    I was poking around on wiki and I ran across Che Guevara's bio. I noticed that he wrote a book about his travels thru S. America on a motorized bike during his youth called the "Motorcycle Diaries." Then I noticed the picture.

    I wonder what kind of bike Hitler rode?
    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    I may or may not be laughing at you.

    They were two very distinct warped minds.

    You should probably go easy on the self congratulation there, Bob. Comparing a political figure you don't like with Hitler isn't exactly subtle. I suspect one or two people got it.

    Didn't realise Che was a golfer though. Man the barricades at the 18th green comrades!

    He's not comparing political figures, he's comparing murderers

    I just believe that most people know as much about Che as they do about von Dutch. He's a dude on a T-shirt and the T-shirt's in style (or was in style in the case of von Dutch)

    Heroes & villains, heroes & villains... always comes down to perspective in the end.

    Regardless of his successes & failures later in life, that is one amazing journey then or now, made even more impressive if that's the "motorcycle" he rode.
    Ride on, Anthony.

    Well thanks to this thread I've learned he was comparable to Hitler. Not as a political figure of course, but as a murderer. Must have been a busy boy.

    Yeah, but Che looked so cool in that beret, and Hitler had that goofy mustache and bad haircut . . . .

    If you listen, you will have heard everyone who has ever gone to war for what they believe in say the same thing.

    That's true, how many hipsters do you see with Hitler t-shirts?
    You better take care of me, Lord. If you don't you're gonna have me on your hands.

    I don't see teen agers and hollywood idiots parading his image around as though they've acheived some sort of cultural "awakening."

    When that happens - I'll correct them, too.

    Oop, my mistake, I misread your original post. I didn't realize you were just instantly insulting anyone who didn't immediately kiss your extremist point of views ass.

    Ghandi hit his wife too. Thomas Jefferson had slaves. Einstein was a poor father. The Beach Boys drugged a girl on the beach and had sex with her. Being directly responsible for the deaths of any number of innocent Iraqis, I'm a murderer too. Hitlers all around.

    Enjoy college, kid. Grow up.
    Ride on, Anthony.
