You know, tribal leaders in rural Pakistan said pretty much exactly the same thing, when laws prohibiting honour killings were imposed on them.

Good to see your maturity of thinking is at the same level.

It's a normal bicycle at the moment, which means that putting a front wheel drive on it makes it ALL WHEEL DRIVE. That is, assuming the rider isn't just a useless sack of fail.

Just use care when nailing cells together!
A little learning is a dangerous thing;
Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:
There, shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely, sobers us again.

No. I did not know that. :oops:
