Tell me about it!

I didn't become an engineering student to win spelling bee's. lol

And for the record cripes is a word, just not used very much in the US, more of a European word I beleive.

Like shenanigans, or ragamuffin. :lol:

So it is a European word???? You mean a British word? Because if it is not, then its not a an English word.

It's just so much fun to see Superlight blow a gasket on just about every issue that he writes about......I can just about imagine watching him in a crowd of people.....I wonder if his face turns red due to his "passion"

All in good fun....!!

I find alot of competitive cyclists like that. I think it's the passion that differentiates the good from the great. Don't lose it

Then there are the quiet and subtle ones who make no show, no noise- you know the kind like Petachi (sp?) and Georgie and Indurain, etc..........

I am a very reserved person, but my passion runs deep.

I don't know if the comparison is that easy.

This doesn't look like a standard Giant to me? It is less slooping and it has an aero front brake. But I just might be wrong again :?.

Cripes is English.

You should win spelling bee's, if you can't communicate to others, then what you are trying to communicate is lost. If you invented the greatest product in the world, but couldn't tell people in a manner that they understand what it is, you may as well not have invented it.

Sheeeit, half the engineers I work with are Asian and can barely speak english. They may be Einsteins for all I know but you'd never know it because you can barely understand them.

But the number of American students who can handle the math and science of engineering seems to be dropping. I guess American students think math and science and engineering aren't "cool".

So we're stuck with brilliant engineers who you can't understand what they're talking about half the time.

Be careful.......the shop could be dangerous- you could get caught in the crossfire of opinions, half-truths and true facts being tossed around and used against an unsuspecting consumer....
