It reminds me of something I saw in an old Weird Tales comic book while trippin' on orange sunshine.

Default kpaul's speeding rules

Freeways:
[*] Never go more than 10 mph over the speed limit on the freeway.
[*]Usually I just try to keep with up with the flow.. 5-10 mph over the speed limit i is the norm in the Puget Sound Area of WA state. Much higher average speed in CA.
[*]Never draw attention to myself by weaving through traffic, popping kreb cycle wheelies, etc.[*]Get out in the HOV or fast lane and hang out.
Back roads
[*]Try to keep it down to than 10 over the speed limit the first pass down a road (scouting run)
[*]Never go over 20 the speed limit on the next run.
[*]Always have fresh batteries in the detector.
[*]Never speed in school zones or around bus stops
[*]Keep rpm's/noise down in areas with homes near the road.. Stealth is the key.
[*]Be considerate to country folks.. You wouldn't want people to speed down your street i.e. find roads that don't have a lot of development.



[i]kpaul sez

If you can't have fun unless you go more than 10 over the speed limit you need to go to a track. Keep in mind speed is an important factor in a crash i.e. the energy that must transfered varies with the square of the speed or velocity.



Never speed without a full-face helmet, protective jacket, gloves, pants and boots

(leather is the best)





Back to work break is over

Don't you just love it when they order you to keep the lawn green and then penalize you for using "too much water"? The typical psychosis of govt.... and those who love it.

I don't worry about it that much, I figure it's just the cost of business. I get away with speeding everyday, on the rare occasions I get caught and can't charm my way out of it I just pay the ticket.



Cops gotta' eat to eh?

What they do here is squawk about insufficient snow pack leading to drought so evryone has to conserve water, no car washing, no lawn watering etc....



Then 6 months later they have to raise the water rates because their revenue didn't meet projections (because everyone conserved water) No mention of how stupid and short sighted it is to base a large cities water supply on annual snow fall and spring run off......



One of the many reasons I live near Tacoma, they had the sense to dam up a river and create a reservior for a steady water supply year 'round
