    But the sentiments are apropro for this NG too. Delete the references to motors and insert
    bicycle-related terms. The sentiment is universal to racing/riding fast.

    No matter the kind of bike...

    No matter the engine size...

    No matter the age / sex or nationality of the rider...

    You gots Slow Movers (SM) and you gots Fast Movers (FM)... rare are the Quick Movers (QM)

    SM's are slow because they see the road go by fast as in:
    YIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIKES...

    FM's are fast because they see the road go by slow as in: hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

    QM's are teachers who's influence never stops...

    SM's institutionalized slowness whereas FM's practice quickness at every turn...

    Just as motorcyclist learn to ignore unsolicited advice from the non motorcyclist... FM's learn to
    ignore unsolicited advice from SM's... their advice is just a temporary appearance of superiority...
    SM counsel is especially irksome if all they can do it get in the way of a FM...

    SM's have no business lecturing FM's because they see no safety in speed...

    Skill to do comes from doing... a SM at a FM pace may soon consult a guard rail...

    FM's are even slow to receive advice from other FM's but quick to receive consult from QM's
    (Quick Movers)

    QM advice is generally judge by results... not by intentions... like words given freely by Gary
    Jaehne Andy Burnett and Doc Wong... their advice is heeded for it's most needed...
