Bicycles and Tricycles and Romance

In a post titled Mind Over Machine, the blog Joshua Birtles: Life, the Universe and Nothing quotes a lyric from the old song, "Bicycle Built for Two," which was written by Harry Dacre in 1892 and updated with a techy twist in a notable 1968 film:

"Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you. It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage. But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two." --HAL, 2001: A Space Odyssey
I'm mentioning it because of the serendipity of happening upon Joshua Birtles' blog soon after posting the post below this about tricycle pedicabs. How synchronistic!
