Strange Connections

Sometimes the references of popular culture are simply too good to pass up making fun of. In this case, it was while I was listening to a commercial on the radio (1370 WSPD, no less) today describing a memory training class. The commercial stated that, "memory is a trainable skill ... like riding a bicycle". The relationship that it described (and the potential humorous ramifications of the statement) struck me, so I thought that I would share it with you under the concept that anything can be taken to ridiculous extremes.
  • Memory is a like riding a bicycle.
  • Sex is like riding a bicycle.
  • Therefore according the rules of symbolic logic, memory is a lot like sex.
  • I have ridden a bicycle and remember sex, therefore I may have already completed memory training (though I don't seem to remember it) .
(That last one shouldn't count, but I couldn't resist putting it in.) 

Yep, that clinches it. Things that you least suspect are in fact related.

How about having sex while riding a bicycle?

Or is that too depraved?

I am not sure that there is anything too depraved in the world today, but what you suggest might be dangerous.

It reminds me of the time ... oh, never mind.
