Just as I was ready to send this, BrightSpeed stopped functioning for
a couple of weeks. Since the conversation will be long over before I
can read it, I changed the newsgroup from .tech to .misc

* I remember changing clothes in a handicap stall, and I'm pretty sure
that the meeting was about bikes. The regular meetings of the MHW
were after dark, and on a road with a sharp drop-off at the edge that
once caused me to spin the car, narrowly miss a twenty-foot snow bank,
and end up in the other lane pointed back the way I came. Before I
found a place to turn around, I had an attack of common sense and went
home.

Oops! Leaving the "are" out of "some crashes are not worth
remembering" changes the meaning entirely.
