A Geophysicist approached Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates and asked to be let in. Saint Peter-"I have just gone through all the records on your life's history and I can not find one redeeming quality or act of kindness. Why should I let you pass? I challenge you to find a single act of redemption to convince me to let you into Heaven." The Geophysicist gave this a moment of heavy thought before speaking. Geophysicist- "Well, there was this one time where I was driving along in my car and I noticed a gang of toughs roughing up an elderly gentleman. I stopped the car and pulled out a tire iron from the trunk and approached what appeared to be the leader of the group. I grabbed him by the chain on his face and smashed him over the head with the tire iron. I then turned to the rest of the gang and told them. 'If you don't leave this man alone, the rest of you will get more of the same!'Saint Peter frantically searched through his paper work while asking "When did this happen?" Geophysicist- "Oh, about two minutes ago. "

As a motorcyclist here is some personal wisdom I wish to impart: the rider is more important than the ride so stay vertical, keep the rubber side down and no 'out of bike experiences'.
