    Sounds like I just need to get out there and do it so that I can understand better.

    I did discover this weekend that I would like a helmet light to be able to look around after 2 or 3 hours of darkness. I'd had this feeling in the past, but the sun usually comes up or I get home.
    There are 10 types of people, those that understand binary and those that don't.

    "Hoon activities can include speeding, burnouts, doughnuts or screeching tires"

    I have certainly done the "hide in a bush" trick, a few times. sometimes, you just have a feeling that this crazy driver could mean big trouble/danger for you! I was smoked out big time by a diesel once, so I fell back and clicked off my lights, they really thought I was gone! Thankfully there were no other cars around and I was able to escape unharmed with the lights off.
