They do not happen in Iran!

26 years later...

In 1983, the Circle Jerks released "Golden Shower of Hits" with a song entitled: "When the Shit hits the Fan." The lyrics still resonate. I've added emphasis.

In a sluggish Economy Inflation,
Recession Hits the land of the free
Standing in unemployment lines
blame the government
for hard times

we just get by
however we can
we all gotta duck when the shit hits the fan

10 kids in a Cadillac
stand in line for welfare checks
let's all leach off the state
gee! the money is really great!

soup lines
free loaves of bread
5lb blocks of cheese
bags of groceries
social security
has run out on you and me

we do whatever we can
gotta duck when the shit hits the fan

Interesting, huh?

Urban Biking Operations

"I had to ride slow because I was taking my guerrilla route, the one I follow when I assume that everyone in a car is out to get me. My nighttime attitude is, anyone can run you down and get away with it. Why give some drunk the chance to plaster me against a car? That's why I don't even own a bike light, or one of those godawful reflective suits. Because if you've put yourself into a situation where someone has to see you in order to be safe - to see you, and give a fuck - you've already blown it." ~Neal Stephenson, Zodiac
