Seems like a "Passenger Puncture" from a floor mounted spindle could be quite painful or quite enjoyable....depending on the gender ...
Then, while at WFO on my way up a dune, I understood. It was like the heavens opened up and I heard the voices of Angels.
Shortly afterward, I heard the voice of God. He said, and I quote, "Dumbass."
