Well, hell, everyone knows that 94.2% of statistics are made up on the
spot ;-)


Statistics have shown that 65.34% of statistics are inaccurate.
And 80% of people consider themselves to be above average.

Today I rode my bike without a helmet. I am fine.
The only real risk was that posed by the Police.

I will post here EVERYDAY until I prove law proponants point (which be
defination means I will be unable to post here since I would be either
a) dead, or b) suffer a serious head injury).

I suggest everyone else do the same.


I suggest you go **** yourself you stupid asshole.

Just exactly where are you riding your bike. I will make it a point to
bounce you off my vehicle and we will see if your cranium is thick enough to
protect you from the impact of my vehicle on your stupid head.

The main thing though is try not to think. You are not capable of it.
Instead, just pedal your damn bike and do not post any more messages here to
this board as you are making a complete ass of yourself.

NOw who is threatening who? I'm in Victoria, BC. Bring it on, goof.
As a matter of fact, make the trip and lets discuss it. I betcha you
won't because you're too chicken, and you're soo frustrated by you
disfunctional pee-wee.

THis coming from someone who said he doesn't need to form opinions as
subjects since the politicians (whom he calls expertrs in every
field). LOL.

Stop me, Eddy-boy. Come on I DARE YOU!!!!!

It is just a matter of time until some local slob there in BC hits you with
his vehicle. As for me making a trip anywhere, that is out of the question.
My traveling days are over. My bladder won't permit it and neither will
various other body parts. And so it goes.

The funniest people in the world are those who think they are going to live
forever in good health because they imagine they are doing something that is
healthy. What a laugh that is. We are all of us going to fail and die right
on schedule regardless of what measures we take for the sake of our health.
I do think one will feel better if one gets some physical activity, but that
is about all that physical activity will do for you. Even as you sit there
reading these words of mine, every cell in your body is aging ... aging ...
aging. Kind of like rust working away on steel.

The main thing though is try not to think. You are not capable of it.

My God! It rains every day of the year there in Victoria. You are living in
a rain forest, temperate version. I prefer the deserts of the Southwest.
Death Valley suits me much better than soggy old Victoria. That is probably
why you quack like a duck all the time.

This last is perfectly possible if you define the average as the
arithemetic mean (that is, add up all the numbers and divide by the
number of people) :)

Ummm, no. If you use the arithmatic mean 50% of the people will be above
the mean and 50% below the mean, that's what the mean means. A majority
can be above average no problem. See example:


2, 7, 9 , average = 6, 66.7% of the numbers are above average.

Ummm, no.

surely you mean 'Umm, yes' as you demonstrate.

the mean and 50% below the mean, that's what the mean means.


That is the median, not the mean. Go back to maths 101.

A majority
can be above average no problem. See example:


2, 7, 9 , average = 6, 66.7% of the numbers are above average.


mean = sum of values divided by number of values
median = the middle value.
mode = the most observed value.

Wrong again, Eddy boy. I'm still here. OVer thirty years later and I
am still here. You not any morotist is gonna stop me. Statistics (no
matter which one you believe) prove that.

As for me making a trip anywhere, that is out of the question.

Empty threats, yet again. Chicken ****.
