I have seen the error of my ways and must admit you two are totally super-awesome. I absolutely respect how you embrace unconventional thought processes and I was wrong to so robustly challenge your opinions. Please keep up the good fight advocating the scientific method, freedom of speech and the need to speak truth and reason even when people don't want to hear it.

That has to be the best and highest-quality cardboard box I have ever seen. It clearly is able to outperform all other cardboard boxes on the market, and if it is available at a reasonable price, they should be able to dominate the global cardboard box market

Dogman, on cooling a small battery pack:
The real solution is to run more battery. Why not run less and cool em? Because when you do it that way, they still sag under load like grannies tits

I've seen it all from the bottom to the top Everywhere I go the kids wanna Frock.

So much unneeded suffering and ecological damage.

No matter how far you've traveled down the wrong path, the best time to turn around is now.

I've never been stronger or healthier on an only plants diet.
Each carcinogen vapor exposure includes a dice roll for cancer.

Each mutagen vapor exposure includes a dice roll for reproductive genetic defects in your children.

Each engine start sprays them into a shared atmosphere which includes beings not offered an opportunity to consent accepting these cancer experiences and defective genetics life experiences.

Every post is a free gift to the collective of minds composing the living bleeding edge of LEV development on our spaceship.

Stick a higher voltage battery on an otherwise unchanged bike, and you won't be able to resist goosing the throttle, or taking a section of road just a little faster. Even when you are well disciplined, it still will effect your power usage. For some, this might only change their usage by a few dozen watts per ride. For others like me, ....... wewll, YEEHAA!
