Default Random stupidity - wireless cyclo computers and wireless laptops...

HA! I just did 8.5km without leaving my computer.

Apparently, a wireless cyclo-computer thinks the signals from a Wi-Fi card
are a wheel spinning at "80km/hr". LOL!

Random stupidity.

Have you tried checking how fast your cell phone's ringing will make
the comp think you're going?

Don't own a cell phone.

I guess that explains why you never answer your voicemail. Sorry about
accusing you of snubbing me...

Wow. What a great training tip. I wonder if I can get a higher-data
rate Wi-Fi card and go even faster. If so, they'd better watch out
for me at the next time trial! ;-)

Random stupidity.


The best kind (my specialty, actually) (obviously).

In a few years, all cars will be equipped with transmitters sending
out their locations and speeds.
If you drive one too fast or run a stop sign, this will generate an
automatic ticket, sent to you at your E-Mail address, which you will be
required to register under your full and correct name. They'll have
your debit card number as well, and you'll be instantly docked for the
fine. Think how complicated life will be, when electronic gadgets cause
this system to frame people for violations they never committed. It'll
be enough to drive people to riding bikes instead.
