Dr. Horatio:

As an educated man (as you pretend yourself to be by the appelation "Dr."), you should appreciate a few mistakes in your reasoning. I will not even mention your grammar ...

The statement that "mopeds are about the most laughed at mode of transportation in the world" is a very vague statement. After all, there are many means of transportation. I could use a pogo stick for transportation, for example. Or how about a sleigh pulled by several hundred mice? Other than the general vagueness of your statement, you do not provide any evidence. A general social survey of some large quantity of randomly chosen respondents would be necessary. Of course, the sample population would have to reflect the world at large (a very daunting project, indeed!) in order to verify the use of "in the world". Secondly, your survey instrument would have to be diverse enough to apply to all cultures (here we enter translation problems) and also different modes of transportation. Both of these problems pale in comparison to the question ordering problem and instrument validity tests. I suppose a Q-sort methodology could be used, but considering the cultural diversity of the sample population, it would be most difficult to construct. In essence, such a survey (utterly necessary to assess the validity of your statement) is impractical, if not entirely unfeasable.

Also, I'm not entirely sure such a survey would confirm your claim. Many people cheer us on when we ride mopeds. Children wave excitedly and become wide-eyed (surely you would have to include this 1/5 of the world's population in your survey sample). Bottom line: I think mopeds are rather more admired than you would expect.

I am happy to read that you would be impressed by a website dedicated to people who launch themselves out of cannons. That would impress me as well (though I'm sure such websites are already there). [Though I believe you mentioned a light-speed rocket car? This is more dangerous and laughable than a cannon.] Regardless, I, for one, have great respect for the daredevils that launch themselves out of cannons. So, yes, I would be greatly impressed. Whether or not I would be impressed with their website, of course, is another matter. If the site is poorly designed, my interest would soon fade.

Now, as to your forming a vigilante group to hunt us down: I'm not sure why you would even bother. Also, your choice of weapons (num-chucks) is rather interesting. This is a most difficult and unwieldy weapon. I suppose you must also be highly coordinated and/or a weapons expert in addition to your other many talents.

In any event, we look forward to your "hunting us down." It would be quite interesting. We are, after all, America's toughest moped gang for no small reason. Also, be careful in Kalamazoo. The police here are quite fond of us, as we often help them out with our own brand of vigilante justice (chalk up a several arrests and stolen property recoveries to our name).

Cheers!
