RADIATION: The Funnest* Challenge Yet

*Maybe “funnest” should be “most funin the interest of correct grammar. I’m not sure, so I’ll let it stand in the title because “funnest” SOUNDS funnier.

I say this month’s challenge is the funnest one yet because it really forces me to keep my eyes open. Things like trees and animals and blues and reds and rocks and bricks just pop out at you. Finding radiation, however, requires a little bit of imagination and a whole lot of scanning the landscape. Today I think I set a personal record for biking the least amount of distance in the greatest amount of time. The thing is, I enjoyed every minute of my ridiculously slow progress.

In a few cases — like the ones above — it was hard to get my bike in the picture. But I think I managed to capture at least part of my bike in the next few pictures.

In case you think I’m a commercial sell-out because I’ve included pictures of the Walmart Radiation Logo and the Papa Murphy’s Radiationally-Sliced Pizza, I assure you I’ve received ZERO remuneration from those companies. I’d LIKE to get some money from those companies, but since I haven’t, I can still claim some degree of artistic integrity.

(Edit: After reviewing the picture above, I absolutely cannot figure out why the lower half of my torso looks like that. I was wearing shorts. I do not have a red laser beam shooting out of my belly button. There was no red tag on my left thigh.)

Finally, coming up next are two more variations of Oberon, who, you may remember from yesterday, is the God of Radiational Rays From The Sun.

I know it’s only day two of this challenge, but I think I’m done now.

Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    You have provided a lot of ideas for the rest of us, paved the way so to speak. Well done! I can see why you didn’t cover much distance.
    Finished for the month? I doubt it.

    Done?? Yeah, sure, you betcha.

    A group I started years ago changed our motto from ‘miles per hour’ to ‘hours per mile’. Sounds like you would fit right in on this day ;’-).
