FOO is an illusion based on a lie bought about by your imagination.

It was a short survey and has long since been abandoned.

No, it's a thread about whether the other threads seem better. I suppose the reverse would be to not post a thread when things seem worse...

Hmmm ... I'm confused. what if this thread stinks? does that mean I should reply? or not reply?

BTW: this is pretty light hearted; maybe because so many cyclists are going stir crazy with cabin fever (although I rode today)
