When my wife's motorcycle friends ask "what's your ride", and I respond "a two-cylinder external combustion 1891 Portland", am I asking for a fight?

I think if you say - an 1891 Portland twin,  I'd bet you'd get the Scoobie-Do "Baawrumf".  Then you'd have some splain'in to do...... ;D

If a train leaves Chicago travelling east at 60mph while a train leaves Boston travelling west at 50mph, at what point will positive train control prevent us from having to answer this question?
