    Synergy

    Synergism: cooperative action of discrete agencies such that the total effect is greater than the sum of the effects taken independently.

    1 + 1 = 3.

    This is the secret of BikeForums. Somehow, when each of us brings something to the gathering, a new force is created which did not exist before. It adds to the power of the meeting so that everyone who participates walks away with more than they started with.

    Not only that, but here you can give without losing anything and you can take without removing anything.

    Ask yourself, "How important is a wrench?" The answer: if you need it, very important. Now ask yourself, "How much more valuable is a set of wrenches, if you need them?. So one person's input is valuable, if you need it at the moment. Therefore how much more valuable is the input of a whole group of experienced people, available when you need it? Hm?

    ... and all these many years, I thought "Synergy" was the name of the power company that serves Hell!

    NOTE: This is supposed to be a pun. I'm trying.

    I've got to set foot in Georgia or Louisiana some summer day: I can't believe humidity there can be worse than it is here in Kansas City, but I keep hearing it is.

    JonR,
    Let me try to illustrate. Our relative humidity is VERY often 98-100%. Even if the temperature is only say, 80F, you feel sweaty as soon as you step outside. If the temperature is in the 90s, which it usually is in the summer, you feel like towels in the dryer after about 20 minutes, piping hot but still soggy wet.
    I travel occasionally in my job. Several times I have been at meetings in other parts of the country where people are complaining about the humidity at around 70-80% when I am thinking how nice and dry it feels.
    The last couple of years we have actually had more relatively dry days than usual. Of course, that was partly because our rainfall was WAY below normal so the farmers in the area were paying in spades for our relative comfort.
    So check the relative humidity in KC on what you consider a humid day then let's compare notes.
    When I stepped out the door this morning well before daylight it was warm and muggy, but the built in breeze on the bike makes things a little better.
    Regards,

    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!

    Is the humidity in the States something you guys ever get used to...it's always bloody damp over here, even when the sun has come out to play!!!

    Hopefully, I'll never get used to it!

    Rainman, you did a good job of describing it! Sometimes it's like you are walking out the door and into the dryer!

    Fellow Soggy Guy

    Well a soggy day on a bike is better than a climate controlled day in an SUV!

    Well said Rainman. I remember visiting in Boston one summer for a wedding and staying the in the groom's family's Bed & Breakfast. I came down for breakfast the first morning wearing jeans and was assured I would die by the end of the day if I didn't change into shorts right away as it was going to be "hot today". I asked how hot and was advised it would be a sweltering 80 degrees and that it would definitely be a big item on the evening news. I laughed my *** off all day....while looking for a store to buy a sweater in!!

    Isn't synergy what Jem kept in her ear-ring? Not that I ever watched girl cartoons as a kid or perhaps even though Jem might be kinda sexy.
    I have to go now...
