The missed beats I was experiencing are considered to be benign, though apparently they're most common among women who are on birth control and who smoke. I do take medication that's similar enough to birth control.
I don't smoke however.
Well actually, because of those evil cars driving next to me I do.
The crud dripping out of those frigging metal monsters is loaded with neurotoxins, heavy metals, carcinogens, and all sorts of other fun pollutants--kind of like a cigarette.
It occurred to me that I've had this life long hacking cough, kind of like that of a smoker. Go air pollution!
Hmm, I wonder if it's possible to use scuba gear while biking?
Just because I'm unwilling to contribute to the pollution I'm more at risk to suffer from it. (Of course all of those fine drivers sitting in bumper to bumper traffic, you too are sucking down all sorts of unhealthy chemicals).
Maybe I should move someplace cleaner. Since the idea of a car free city in north america is just ludicrous, I've heard of a few car free cities in Europe.
And to think I was tempted to buy one of those killer devices. Pity the electric cars aren't available...
