    Oh. So you are operating under the misconception that we blind, ignorant masses on the internet are looking for certainty. Do you really think that's how we think statistics work? Thrilled you could...

    A person either will have heart disease or not. 100% or 0%. Fine.

    However, any...

    I'm sure I'll be sorry I took your troll bait, but you keep harping on this. It would seem that you saw the LAB study about bicycle fatalities where it concluded that 41% of bicycle fatality...

    You are wrong. There are very few, if any that require cyclists to FRAP based on the speed of cars. If cycling at a reasonable bicycle pace, FRAP rarely applies.

    Yea. I've tried that. It's not much less awkward when I tell them it takes me just shy of two ours to ride to work. It's about twice what it takes me to drive. I've been doing it longer than most of...
