Did I mention he's obsessed with Nazis?

Musketeer #1 got a wild hair up his ass last year (or it could have just been a midlife crisis, sometimes they're hard to tell apart) and got a motorcycle license... and a motorcycle. I know less about motorcycles than I do about microbiology, so all I can say is that it's a very snazzy looking bike, and it's a BMW. Definitely not "low ego emissions" material.

Today he wandered into my office to chat, and offhandedly mentioned that someone, he's assuming it was the General, turned the hand-warmers on just to mess with him, and he didn't figure out until he got home why his hands were burning. I must have looked at him strangely because he supplied an explanation.

Musketeer #1: It has a switch you can turn on to warm the handles so your hands don't freeze. Like seat warmers in a car. Those Germans think of everything. Especially if it has to do with heat... and ovens.

There wasn't much I could say to that. Ironically enough, one of the compressors on the air conditioning unit that cools our office broke today. The Germans have to be involved somehow, since it's like an oven in here now.

PS- Show of hands: who thinks it would be a bad idea to go for a ride with Musketeer #1?

Screwed up. Whoa, screwed up.

And please make sure this guy doesn't pull a Rothlesburger(sp?) and not wear a helmet. He may need a serious kick to the head, but a 90 mph slam to the ground might be a little too much.
