I always forget what "penny farthing" means and have to look it up.  What a terrible Victorian I am!

"'s a form of fiction, and as such, while there may be times when it's considered a worthy vehicle for pointing out some of society and individual flaws - I still want a side that will let there be lighthearted adventures in the clouds, on mars, or under the sea."

Isnt the "right" term an "Ordinary"... rather than "safety"
