Interesting question, what's easier to wipe from the screen, juice, coffee or beer?

If you have a Mac with the glass covered screen it is all much the same to clean off. With the plastic LCD screens I think that coffee with milk and sugar is the hardest to get off.


ok, really large note to self: swallow before reading anything that has 'Scarecrow' as author...

I rode my scooter to the hardware store and it was freezing. I had to put my rain jacket over my leather jacket to get warm on the trip back. A chilly 10C this Saturday morning in beautiful Downunder. Brrrr....

I did see a nice one but it was AU$36,000. Also Harleys are too big to get around to the back of my house without a lot of re paving.

A bike like that you don't park behind the house, you park it in the living room.

Only if
a) your GF/wife shares your passion for bikes or
b) You are aiming for a very quick divorce (aka being thrown out of the house)

And provided you can actually get it into the house. I can't even get my Vespa into my house so a Harley would have no hope.
I've got one of these

It wasn't a Harley, but when house payment #2 said "it's me or the computers", I had to make a decision. And, yeah, I do sort of miss her now and then.

Bah, asking a 'Geek' to part with the computers...
That's like asking a dog person 'me or the dogs'. To my knowledge in 99% of cases the dogs win.

And this is precisely why I now go out every 6 months, find a woman to hate, and buy her a house. Alleviates all that drama in between.
