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.

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.


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.


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

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.

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.


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.

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 ****.

Everybody here, ride thier bike this week without a helmet (law or
not) and report here if you made it back alive. If not then leave a
note for a loved one to post here that you experienced an unfortunate
head injury and suffered serious brain damage (such as Robert
Broughton or Edward Dolan).

Do not engage in argument in this thread only. Just report back with
either

a) Rode today without a helmet-still alive and unharmed

b) Today "insert name here" I proved my point that ALL people should
wear a helmet because I was in an accident and sufferred a head inury.
Note, real name, area and hospital must be provided for authenticity
(we wouldn't want lyers posting falsehoods, would we).

And just how many person weeks do you think you would need to make a
statistically relevant study?

HI on bicycles are rare events.

One HI in over 25 years regular cycling in all sorts of conditions
(heavy
traffic, sheet ice, time trialling, off road).

So far so good, and I even had an accident (a SMIDSY for which the
driver apologised profusely and admitted it was entirely their fault,
and since nobody was hurt and no paint scratched and I think they
learned a small lesson I left it at that).

You haven't got the hang of this have you? You are supposed to put

complete with all the expanded headers ;-)

Edward Dolan can only be found at ARBR. I do not post ever to multiple

These piddling kill filers we have always with us. Why anyone would
want to
read jerks and screwballs like DiscoDuck in preference to the Great Ed
Dolan
is one of the supreme mysteries of life. I think it has to do with the
stupid begin attracted to others who are equally stupid. When these
types
encounter a genius like myself they are blinded by the light and stuck
dumb.
Well, any one who would kill file me will not know what they have
missed,
and that is perhaps just as well so they don't end up ruing the day
because
of their terminal stupidity.

Everybody here, ride thier bike this week without a helmet (law or
not) and report here if you made it back alive. If not then leave a
note for a loved one to post here that you experienced an unfortunate
head injury and suffered serious brain damage (such as Robert
Broughton or Edward Dolan).

Do not engage in argument in this thread only. Just report back with

either

a) Rode today without a helmet-still alive and unharmed


b) Today "insert name here" I proved my point that ALL people should

wear a helmet because I was in an accident and sufferred a head inury.
Note, real name, area and hospital must be provided for authenticity
(we wouldn't want lyers posting falsehoods, would we).

Well, hell, everyone knows that 94.2% of statistics are made up on

the
spot ;-)

I once told that joke to a group of people, while they were laughing
someone else wandered up and asked what was so funny, so I repeated the

joke, only the number changed. One member of the original group said
"Hang on. Last time it was only xx%". He got more laughs than I did.

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.

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
..=2E.
aging. Kind of like rust working away on steel.

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

it.

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.


Instead, just pedal your damn bike and do not post any more messages

Stop me, Eddy-boy. =A0Come on I DARE YOU!!!!!

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.
