I am so addicted to Bikeforums someone help me

Just have to check bikeforums everyday, usually a lot more than once a day. Somehow I know this is an unhealthy addiction, i've searched everywhere but I couldn't find an internet forums anonymous so maybe let's all get together, roast some marshmallows and drink some BEER.

maybe if you drink enough beer you'll forget all about bike forums?

Why don't you throw around a couple of racial slurs, offend a bunch of people, get banned, then you won't feel as compelled to come here as often.

Tried that; didn't work. Maybe I missed out on the racial slur bit.

Obviously you've never had a burning marshmallow stuck to your forehead while drinking Dos Equis laced with mescaline. Or been drinking Dos Equis laced with mescaline and thought you had a burning marshmallow stuck to your forehead.

I forgot where I was going with this.

Its not the forum itself that is the cause. Although some of the more nasty polemical ones do encourage bad behavior.

Addiction to forums often just means that someone is profoundly bored at work. Addressing that problem-- either by changing jobs or making changes in your current job, will put an end to obsessive forum reading.

OK OK we are BUSTED...

It was not a burning marshmallow. We just turned on your helmet light and said it was a burning marshmallow.

I was going to tell you, but MAN it was SO funny..........we're all sorry.

I've been laughing at the picture in my mind of a guy on mescaline trying to put out a fire on his forehead since yesterday. It really made my night last night.

So the big question is was he riding in the middle of the right half of the lane, in traffic, with a burning mashmallow on his head? Does having your head on fire allow you to run a stop sign?
