    I find wearing hi-vis eliminates 90% of all possible smidsy incidents guaranteed and not only that shaft drive motorbikes cannot do wheelies also guaranteed. This is Jeremy Corbin signing off
    Ear plugs also help married life to be more bearable fiction.

    By amazing coincidence, today I scanned, and emailed to Spin, one of the original source articles then I used when thinking on this and developing Z Line. November 1988 issue of Motorcycle & Workshop, article by Ed Reid of Oxford Motorcycle Engineers, about lateral positioning.

    semantic meaning

    You also need to factor in 'workload' which refers to how much cognitive ability we have to process the task in hand - it turns out that even simple driving tasks exceed our ability to fully process the incoming data, and 'inattentional blindness' (which is a really unfortunate name for a phenomenon which really refers to being mono-focused on a demanding task rather than 'not paying attention' which is what a lot of people think it means ). .
