A friend of mine is a pretty smart dude has a PHD and all. Oneday he comes up to me and says, what's the differance between a hubcap and a rim? Dude, I had to sit there for a least an hour and explain this to him and he still never got it. Now, either I dumb and can't explain things are a PHD is'nt all it's cracked up to be. P.S No relevance what so ever to the topic just a fun story.

Yep. I just think the kid needs to wear his helmet more often. Or maybe he's one of those you see walking around that have to wear helmets to protect themselves?

I've seen some stupid questions, but geez. It makes me wonder how some people find their way out of bed in the morning.

Yeah... sad really. No longer can you authentically have a car chase scene in a movie or TV show where the hubcaps fly off in high speed turns.

Remember back in the late-1980s/early-1990s before airbags became prevalent and auto-makers decided to put things like the radio controls on the front center of steering wheels? I recall thinking at the time, "Great... now when they shoot the driver, he'll no longer slump over and set off the horn... he'll just end up changing the radio station."

Well, you understand the punchline to that show right? He lost the instructions manual when the aliens gave him the suit. I think that's what typified him as "The Greatest American Hero".

I don't know what you people are thinking and why the html is named posting. Right. I'm not going to check that out because at first glance I knew it was gonna be some crap. Don't make me get real angry. I've been having bad days.

Since we gone off on this tangent, and since this thread was useless anyways, my favorite show was .........drum roll..............Not Dukes of Hazard (that's #2) but..............................................................................Square Pegs!


Remember that show?????

Sarah Jessica Parker was the geek! She's come a long way!

do what about cars? Really this a vague question at best....

As far as hoggin the road nope, we have a troll post contest though, which is incredibly fun, you should go, I think Merton is winning

Now if your talking about working on cars...sure I used to back when I owned a car...but I came to the conclusion that for my lifestyle a bike takes only a marginal amount of extra time and only costs about 4% of what a car does for me every month....so screw cars
