    Take your "cheers" and shove it up your ass, you god damn dumb fucking
    moron.

    Most repair manuals are far more interesting than you, and far less turgid
    to read. I'd get more pleasure from running my nostrils down a cactus, than reading another contribution from you. Maybe you wouldn't come across as
    such a jellyfish-sucking mental midget if you didn't have an intellect
    rivaled only by the Village Idiot's stupider brother;

    Here's a tip: no one will ever know that you've had a lobotomy if you wear a wig to hide the scars; stop posting your drivel on message boards, and learn
    to control the slobbering. Clearly, the full area of your ignorance is not
    yet mapped. We are presently only exploring the fringes of that vast
    expanse.

    Are you normally this dumb or are you just having a blonde moment? Wouldn't clues have more room to fit in your head if you got rid of some of the gobbledygook in there?

    In closing, I offer these heartfelt words: Go suck on a frozen pineapple, asshole.

    Mountain bikes have wheels. Wheels are for roads.

    Trails are for walking. What’s the matter? Can’t walk?

    My goodness Eddie, but you are up late this evening, nearly 11 PM.
    Didn't your mother ever tell you that, "early to bed and early to rise
    makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise"?

    But, I guess that she didn't as you seem to have fallen by the wayside
    on all counts. Ah well, it wasn't for poor folks rich people wouldn't
    be called rich and if it weren't for stupid people the wise would just
    be average. So I suppose that you and your ilk do benefit mankind, in
    a sort of left handed manner.

    But, "Content, Content" he cries. Well O.K.

    Lets see, "content" according to Eddie seems to be:

    "Take your "cheers" and shove it up your ass, you god damn dumb
    fucking moron."
    "Go suck on a frozen pineapple, asshole."
    "By the way, I strongly advocate that hikers carry a firearm..."

    Goodness Eddie, do you think that I would descend to your level? I
    mean really?

    Sorry, Ed but I just can't do it. You see my parents brought me up
    properly so I would feel very awkward slobbering filth to demonstrate
    my manliness.

    I suspect that you do understand just poorly you do the manly
    department. After all we can all see how dirty you talk to convince
    others that you are really Big, Bad, Dirty talking, Eddie..

    Someone wrote that "Profanity is the effort of a feeble brain to
    express itself forcibly", and others have said, "people only swear
    because their vocabulary is limited." And, you know what? Those folks
    knew what they were talking about and there you stand to prove it.

    Perhaps if you changed your nom de plume (pen name) to something like
    "Filthy Eddie" or maybe "Foulmouthed Eddie" it might help people to
    understand you.

    But, as Filthy Eddie says, "Bicycles have wheels". One assumes that in
    the next lesson he will reveal the Law of Gravity.

    "Shocking sabotage of Irish biking event could have killed, organisers say

    13:17, 3 Jul 2016
    By Chris Kilpatrick

    Competitors can hit speeds of up to 40mph - but logs, rocks and string were discovered on the track were discovered just a day before the event

    String seen tied between trees

    Organisers of a mountain biking event in Ireland have said there could have been "serious injuries, if not a fatality" had logs, rocks and string strewn across a track not been spotted ahead of the race.

    Competitors in the First Tracks Enduro Cup race taking place in Kilbroney
    Park at Rostrevor, Co Down can hit speeds of up to 40mph and marshals discovered the items just a day before the event.

    Marshals found the items yesterday and say string was tied at head height between some trees.

    A race organiser told Belfast Live: "It is so dangerous.

    "It was premeditated as the items used were not items normal walkers would usually carry.

    "If it hadn't been spotted there would almost certainly have been serious injuries, if not a fatality."

    All mountain bikers are scum even if they are not punching out 14 year old
    girl hikers. They are scum because they are where they are not wanted and
    doing what is not wanted - riding a bike on trails designed and meant for hikers.

    Detectives are looking for a man who allegedly punched a 14-year-old
    girl after getting knocked down while biking on the Paint Creek
    Trail, officials said.

    Oakland County Sheriff's deputies at 10:33 a.m. Saturday, July 2,
    were sent to the 700 block of Markdale Avenue to investigate a report
    of an assault that happened on the popular biking trail.

    Investigators learned that a 14-year-old girl was walking along the
    trail with three other children when a man riding a red mountain bike approached them from behind.

    The children moved to the left side of the trail to let the bicyclist
    pass them, but he accidentally ran into the 14-year-old, crashing and
    falling off his bike, the girl told officers.

    "The rider became angry and was yelling at the girl," authorities
    said in a prepared statement. "He then struck her on the left arm
    with a closed fist. He acted as though he was going to strike her
    again, but stopped and yelled at her to run."

    After getting the report, deputies searched the Paint Creek Trail and
    nearby parking lots for the man, but could not find him. Deputies
    will now be conducting extra patrols on the trail, and additional
    bike patrols will also continue.

    Investigators are now looking for the man and are asking for the
    public's help identifying him.

    The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic man who is 5-foot-3
    and about 50 years old with grey hair.

    The man was riding a red mountain bike, had a yellow bandana on his
    head, and was in a white shirt that had blue and black lettering with
    black biking shorts. He was also wearing sunglasses with a rearview
    mirror, deputies said.

    Anyone with information about the man or the incident is asked to
    call the Oakland County Sheriff's Office tip line at 1-888-TURN-1-IN."
