Hmmm. My every day bike weighs in at around 30 lbs plus another 10 lbs in accessories, (lock, water bottle, lights, rack, panniers etc.) On top of that, I routinely carry a cycle bag with tools, repair kit, radio, waterproofs and so on that weighs another 5 lbs or so. Let's say I'm shifting an extra 45 lbs, a quarter of my current weight, around compared to a man walking. However, I'm not physically having to carry the weight, only changing its momentum, so it's not easy to make a direct comparison. Anyone have the physics to be able to work it out?
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

From Wikipedia:
Husqvarna (pronounced [ˈhʉ̂ːsˌkvɑːɲa]) is a Swedish company founded 1689 to produce muskets. The company has grown since, was partitioned, and is now a brand of multiple companies.
