Is this an old Raleigh? I remember those friction dynamo things, chewing their way through tyre walls.

Most older bicycles <80's had those, I had one on my bike as a kid in the 90's, made it heavy as hell to pedal.

No, I'm not sure which brand it is. I bought the bike second hand about ten years ago, I think. It's a typical Dutch city bike: the lock is worth more than the bike...

Some things being perfect, cannot be improved upon, like the following Baccarat high ball and low ball respectively:

Baccarat Harmonie Tom Collins.jpg

 

Historical note: everyone gets it wrong. The highball is a short glass and the low ball is tall one, because when a train got the"high ball" signal the engineer only had time for a quick snort before leaving and not time for a long luxurious drink like he would if the train was low balled and signaled to stop. Sorry, but your favorite bartender has it all backwards.

 

Of course, you can settle the debate by requesting a double Old Fashioned, which is short but holds as much as the taller Tom Collins glass, giving you the best of both worlds as you can choose between snorting or sipping as the situation demands.

Love that thing. I don't really like the faber pencils so I cut off mirado black warriors. This is insane, I know, but you gotta have some autistic traits. It IS a spectrum you know.

Sinclair Black Watch... style over substance...

Iconic != stylish

I met the guy who originally developed this, back in the daze. Before Sinclair got hold of it it was very sleek, and marketed only as a kit - you had to sort of snap and screw it together. I wanted one.

The Sinclair / Timex 1000 may have been the first stylish computer:

vs its rough contemporary, the Apple II:

It wasn't until the iMac that Apple really hit its stride stylistically:

The iMac 2 was widely mocked, but I have always appreciated the simplicity and humor of the design:

Cray understood early on that style has a role to play in computing, that function doesn't have to overwhelm form, even for supercomputers:
