> While the roads are clear, there are still a number of skateboarders who will go easily 5 miles across town. You know they do, when you get stuck in commute traffic and twenty minutes later arrive to see the same skateboarder you saw a long ways back.

I can attest to the validity of that scenario, only I've been in the opposite position: I commuted everywhere (school, work, shopping, home) on bicycle, and the rush hour traffic got so bad that all the cars were either crawling down the road or standing still ....while I whizzed by everyone in the bike lane.

The really excruciating irony is that I've done the same thing while cranking away on an uphill stretch of road.

Computers will not be perfected until they can compute how much more than the estimate the job will cost.
