It's a box of hats.
Now I'm going to bring those hats, as well as any others I already have (new ones I mean, not ones I've worn and sweated into) to the Philadelphia Bike Expo with me, where I'll give them away during my "semi-GNAR" this Sunday:
I hope to see some of you there, and while I can't promise everyone will leave with a hat, I can pretty much guarantee to send you off with a swag bag full of weltschmerz--which is a "mental depression or apathy caused by comparison of the actual state of the world with an ideal state," and not a fancy new crème du chamois:
(Weltschmerz Chamois Cream: for when you suck.)
And now, let's get right to the quiz, since I have to be in Philadelphia in two days and it takes like a whole hour and a half to get there. As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer. If you're right a five dollar bill (or its equivalent in Vietnamese Dong) will materialize in your underpants, and if you're wrong you'll see some advice that is exactly one week too late.
Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and hope to see you in Philly(delphia) this Sunday!
