    Parameters are a mathematical index of sorts (or set of). Perimeters are boundaries. Form does follow function... It's a valid argument... Lots of people misusing a word for long enough can make it mean what they misuse it as... There are a few people on this forum that use parameters. I don't. Not my line of work.

    It's like people using CV instead of resume. Yeah, no. You don't have one. There are people that do... But... You have an irrationally long resume? You think you are above a resume? A CV is a life in scholarship and curriculum development. Period. If you aren't actively producing scholarly publications and writing syllabi, you have a resume.

    Pet peeves... Sorry.

    Parameters, perimeters... not the most polarizing topic.

    Extolling the Perimeters of a Parameter - latimes

    Average speed is where it's at. How do I go faster? How does my speed compare to yours? Look, I'm on the internet & I'm fast cus my average speed today says so.

    I think over viewing the forum here and other places, it has got to be the topic of strava.


    compact vs standard cranks.

    I got into once here worse than anything I ever defended in the PO.


    Oh and campy vs shimano, that is a old classic

    Yeah, like when it's cold out and you need to see if those letters that spell STOP right before the intersection have frost on them.

    Or how about those same letters a bit after it has rained.
