^ That's a grin, BTW. WTF ... I tried to edit that 3 times!

If your post has only upper case letters, the forum helpfully decides to make them all lower case.

If hit edit your post now, you'll get it to work.

Speaking of "super snot" it could be dangerous riding a 'bent this time of year, what with folks blowing snot rockets. Safest to be on the same side as their mirror.

Aha! That explains it. The funny thing is I even tried deleting it and going to the emoticon interface and got the same result!

That had me worried I was seeing things, so I decided to leave it and move on.

You have a point, at least nobody mocked my recumbent.

Next time wear a kilt. Only a kilt. No shirt, no underpants. Shoes are fine.

I'll guarantee you that the time after that, when you show up in baggy knickers on a recumbent, people will thank you for your discretion and compliment you on your great taste.

This would be even more, um, effective since he's on a 'bent...

Now there's an idea - I like it. However, the reason I was wearing my baggy knickers is because it was too cold for shorts. A kilt without undies isn't going to work for me.

Well then, you'll have a perfect excuse when they laugh at you this time. You can blame it on shrinkage fromthe cold :D
