Some legitimate biases

Overheard this conversation between my Dad and my second bro M today.


Dad: Looks like an awful number of your friends are getting admitted in hospital for bike accidents!

M (indignantly): How can you say that ???? Only Jeevan, Kiran, Adrian, Vinod, Joseph and Kevin have had accidents ... and Dhanush and Hitesh, and oh yes Mrinal...but that was only last month!!

Dad ( sarcastically): Sorry!

Well, if your brother has maybe 50 friends, that number comes around average, right?

Incidentally, I tagged you. Check out my blog.

I take it your brother rides a bike?

Jeseem said...

I wonder what ur dad tells about ur driving :-P
and M has my full support. bikes are worth any risk. small accidents do happen ;)

Ah.. Boys will always remain boys.. Whats life without a few accidents or something, eh..?

a few years ago i wud have sided with M. but now i have a 4 month old son and i'm already preparing for our arguments about bikes.

it is nothing but a missile on wheels!
no, bigger is not safer - even a harley davidson will be squashed under a KSRTC bus!!
chicks prefer cars.....
avoid all two-wheelers and you will get a car for your 18th birthday!
yes, i know even cars will not scare off the KSRTC. so you'll walk??

please feel free to contribute to MY side of the argument...

I understand how M feels, I am used to such unjustified comments from my parents too!
