    Utterly true

    I got this from another forum and thought it very true. I apologize for the one place in it for the language. Some people just can't talk without garbage coming out. Otherwise it rang true for me in a lot of ways.

    Good stuff. 'Head wind both ways' is my affliction. But I love the smell of diesel...

    I know the 9 mph rule for flying insects is truth, at least the ones on the trails I ride. Sometimes this knowledge is just enough to allow me to escape the miserable little flys, gnats, etc. by pushing out of my 7 or 8 mph slog up a climb!

    Works for really steep climbs (Mt. Baldy Ski Lifts climb comes to mind) on the road too.

    I would quibble about the "Universal" title, however. The Universe is Really, Really BIG (ask Ford Prefect)!

    There's more truth than poetry in that one. Excellent read. Like BSNYC when he's taking his meds.
