    That's pretty much exactly what I said.



    This, however, does not necessarily follow from that, as the better seal creates higher pressure behind the bullet, so it's possible that a load which...

    I might even upgrade your "often" to "always" except that there's an exception for every rule.



    This one is especially true if you're coming up to a red light - I feel that there's no sense in...

    I don't believe I've ever seen anyone biking while wearing a banana hammock. You must live in a truly special place.

    On my ride this afternoon after work, I was behind a guy on an e-bike for a while. He was blowing through stop signs on said e-bike, and thus kept getting away from me. (I stopped for all of the...

    Given that they're legally different but cosmetically and functionally VERY similar, I imagine it would be pretty tough to get a lot of congresspeople to understand the nuances.
