Too Much Information

Postby JD » Thu May 20, 2010 12:29 pm

I've set up a Google search on the word "moped," and weekly I receive a list of articles relating to such. This has been a really bad idea, because most of the stories are about moped riders being killed or injured in one accident or another. It's almost enough to make me want to stop riding.

The appropriate response, of course, is to stop my subscription, as I will do today.

Here's an example of what I received today. The formating is a little goofy due to the "cut and paste" but you get the idea.

...and I can bet you 98% of the "mopeds" involved are actually scooters.
I was told if you stroke it more than twice it's a sin.
