    On yer bike - you eco warrior

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Wow! That is a big-ass bike.
    I was expecting it to be a monster motorcyle or dirtbike though. I think that would be cooler.

    Anyone with a hand and three fingers could tell you that's actually a trike... sheesh...

    To be really technical it has five wheels, but I don't count double wheels like that.

    Well yes, if you want to be more technically accurate in your identifier...
    But even the poster of the video called it a MonsterBike.
    And if you said "MonsterTrike", someone might not have any idea what you are talking about, but when you say "MonsterBike", well everyone understands the universal name "bike" and will know immediately what you're talking about.

    On a frontside tip, it'd be a monster unicycle

    Whatever it is, that thing is no joke.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Well, technically-technically it's not a monster either.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Depends on what definition of "monster" you're using.

    Definition of Monster from dictionary.net

    1. Something of unnatural size, shape, or quality; a prodigy; an enormity; a marvel. [1913 Webster]
