How much of a ride is Ryan Gosling, really?

We’ve carried out some highly scientific investigations.

IT’S RYAN GOSLING’S birthday, aka a day to praise the Gods and his mother for bringing him into the world.

Gosling is a noted ride, and on this day of days we’ve decided to examine how much of a ride he really is.

We’ve chosen several methods by which to measure his rideyness, and allocated an arbitrary number of ride points for each one.

Let’s start with the obvious yardstick…

His looks

His ability to be ridey in ridiculous situations

Situation number one:

Someone made a series of vines of Ryan Gosling refusing to eat cereal. Now that’s pretty ridiculous. However, he still looks good.
