    Right, I don't own the content of a book. But I do have certain rights to use the content of the book.

    Thanks for the explanation. This is something I have difficulty understanding.

    The ideas in a book or artwork are considered to be intellectual property. But if I buy a book I can do almost...

    But most times, the majority opinion started out as a special interest opinion. For example, at one time, car owners were a minority and worked as a special interest group to push governments into...

    Um, this thread is about walking--clearly listed in the subforum blurb as an appropriate topic for discussion.

    But those actions are regulated by the Motor Vehicle Code and civil/criminal codes. They are not controlled by the fiats of a corporation claiming property rights over a product they already sold to...

    But the practice of limiting the purchasers' rights to use the product however he/she desires is new...and very controversial.

    Your ideas seem very interesting, and I do have my own doubts about the "myth" that the road network was created largely for bicycling.

    However, so far you've only expressed an opinion, stated as...

    I don't think there's enough current demand for this. But it might create its own demand.

    Another idea would be to buy camping equipment collectively with other cyclists. Since it's typically...

    That's a very useful stunt.

    I'm getting pretty good at selecting routes that don't have many red lights. Now I'm working at finding round-trip routes that are downhill both ways. ;)

    This is a line that you cross all th time, IMO. Many of your posts have a taunting and ridiculing quality, as if your intent is to embarrass or mock the person who posted.

    Saying an idea is...

    This is my concern also. I don't want the computer controlling the brakes of the car pulling up behind me at a red light to have been hacked by some ninth-grader in Russia.

    I'm still keeping an...

    I used to take my last car to a major auto parts store when the Check Engine light came on. The counter guy would come out and hook up a little monitor and tell me what the computer said was wrong...

    If you have a better idea, I'd love to see you start a different thread.

    At first I thought you were catching the free-range chicken on your bike. Now that would be a stunt! :D

    Walkers of the world--Unite!! You have nothing to loosen but your laces! :D

    Now that you mention it, it is weird that there is so little pedestrian activism. I believe that walking is the leading...

    I don't know, it seems like moonbeams are appropriate for this topic.

    And when did you switch from high horses to moonbeams anyway? Do you have a rotation of insults? I'm getting a little bored...

    As I poorly understand it, you would accelerate slower on Mars due to gravity, but your terminal velocity would be faster (on a long enough downhill) due to less dense atmosphere.
