So usually the picture is an additional hint, often to the first answer, but this time I'm stymied. Is the biking group in the much-maligned 1%?

They are. But it's a different much-maligned 1%.

1%'ers basically advertise that they operate outside of the law. Most other MCs wear a 99% patch indicating that they are just a law-abiding group of folks that like to ride.

What exactly is a Gideon's Bible? I would much rather wait for the Jetpunk community to tell me than to look it up myself, because I am a self-proclaimed lazy sod.

I'm not so suprised not too many people know the name Notch. What suprises me more is that there are more people who know what an Echidna is.

I just know Minecraft (or WoW etc) exists, never noticed it as a cultural phenomenon, unlike Mario, or LOTR or whatever, that is hard to escape even if you've never watched/played it.

Pele would be the god (not goddess) of football, and he's Brazilian, not Hawaiian.

There are a lot of do's and don'ts in Hawaii to keep from incurring the wrath (and curse) of Pele. Don't carry home rocks or sand, do give her flowers or gin, don't pick certain flowers, and don't try to take pork across the Pali Highway (it's reminiscent of her old boyfriend who was part man, part pig, and after a bad breakup they agreed to stay on their own sides of the island).

And wow jupiter only 19% :o shame on you people

(and yes, expecting a comment now not to shame people just because they didnt know something. And "im sure you dont know stuff others do" but I mean this is not about a popular book or soccerplayer or anything that people 20 years from now will have forgotten. Like I dont know most popular lipgloss...)
