I've consulted FactCheckUK and it turns out Ann Summers invented the fucking wheel (£99.99 each or buy 2 get 1 free).

Joke, probably too UK-centric - but you wouldn't get me on a modern motorcycle for fear it would pull my broken arm clean off. :lol:

Is this a recent thing that we’re spelling Xerox with a ‘Z’?

It's all relative. Maybe it's just the inertia of the rest of you that's pulling your broken arm clean off.

Fuck it. Somebody's going to tell me that relativism is self-refuting.

Yes, it's relative to my inertia and the accelerations involved. No matter how quickly I accelerate from rest on my MTB I fear no limb loss - a Ducati "Streetfighter" !?! under my trembly arm control would be a completely different beast.

I understand the Ducati Zrox is described as a matter transporter. :coffee:

Well, it would depend on your perspective.

It might be alleged that relativity is self refuting, in this case.

Huge manatee aside, is it just me, or has this particular poster adopted the time-worn tradition of abandoning unsuccessful threads to plumb new depths of incompetence elsewhere?

This might have been interesting, otherwise.

Oh he's just as chatty/ponderous pompous elsewhere on the web. Some where back there I put up a few example links....maybe in another of his tomes.

Cheers, brother. I'll have a look.

It's always been somewhat irritating to me that somebody starts talking about things that could go somewhere interesting, only to leave them behind when they start to do so.
