It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

@RichardHaney Please also note that it is our policy that you must be nice on this site. Much of your commentary, both within the posts and regarding your edits, is bordering on rude.

@RichardHaney This site does not function like an open-ended forum. It is not an arena for bouncing ideas off one another. This site operates on a Q&A basis. The questions on this site should have definitive answers. There are a number of bicycle forums on the internet that are perfectly good arenas for open-ended discussions like the one you're attempting to start. One of those forums is our chat room. You do need 50 reputation to participate in that chat room, which you'll have once you've asked and answered a few questions.

comment Can there be a stack exchange for casual, rural bike riding and remote touring free of the fanaticism of professional bike riders?
I have closed this question as off-topic because it is not about bicycles, tricycles, unicycles, handcycles, or their use, as defined as the scope of this site in the help center.

This seems to me to fall under the umbrella of "product, service, or learning material recommendations," which are off-topic. I'm willing to entertain thoughts to the contrary though.
