Sean _uk is really YEECH! Don't respond to this crapola as its not even on topic anymore.
How about letting SYS get back to business and ignore those who would make 'idiot' a household word.
Newbys here are welcomed, only if they make sense and are worthy.

It's funny you should mention that cos when I said it looked like fabric, one of the 1st things that came to mind was that it looked like a carpet.
CARET + P = CARPET
CARPET - P = CARET
I don't want to keep this thread off topic, but I just have to correct you, Sys.When I looked at the text you linked above, I got the impression, that the errors are due to a text recognizing program.And indeed, if you compare the gif-version, which is also available there, than you see, that things like the c3c-errors are not in the original.
I know what you mean about that, sys. I know this is not the ideal place for this, but I just read the story again (thanks for the link) and as I have mentioned here before, there are a few things about this mountain bike ride story that scream bs to me. I am an avid cyclist, and love to ride in the backcountry on trips just like the one described. A group of eight mountain bikers will virtually always spread themselves out over at least fifty yards of trail, just to keep from having expensive and painful pileups. By twenty minutes into a ride on a dirt trail, they will be found in groups of two or three, usually, often within shouting distance but maybe not close enough together for someone at the front to hear anyone more than halfway back. A quarter mile or more between the strongest riders and the slowest is not at all uncommon. One might imagine a tight group like you see in the Tour de France, but that's another realm altogether. Even six or so riders of nearly identical ability and physical condition will spread out far enough that a sighting of an object more than a mile away and lasting only a few seconds would be seen by only a few. The description of the ride has other problems, but that is a huge one Of course, to me the photos themselves are completely ludicrous, but we are talking about the text of the report. .
