I vote for any advice containing these lines:

"you can MAKE it work by..."

Does this mean I don't have to go stand in the corner?

If I wanted to be really bad, I would have answered, "Vote Libertarian."

I suspect a lot of people really are Libertarian deep down, but the media has surpressed coverage of what the Libertarian philosophy is so that people think it's the loony anarchy party and there are only two "real" parties anyways even though they both look almost the same to me :-)

Big L= Registered Libertarian
Small L= Should be registered Libertarians

Always glad to see our numbers growing!

Actually, that's fine.

If you want to be "really bad," then mention something about Nick or the Chinese wall jumper. hehe

Any advice that is intended to apply to everyone is bad. There are so many different types of riders, terrain, weather, and riding that almost no advice would work for everyone. We tend to be a little egocentric when doling out advice, and forget that people have vastly different circumstances.
