    I'm not sure if this sould be soapboxed.

    Will the people who ride their bikes and have their knees pointing outwards please try and point your knees in the direction your going. It so annoys me. Your wasting your own energy in doing so. :biggrin:

    After years of playing football and ending with a torn cruciate and medial ligament I will bend my left knee anyway that is comfortable thanks.

    There's a chap who passes me going in the opposite direction who has a wobbly right ankle. It describes a small circle between 11 o'clock and 2 o'clock every revolution. His left ankle behaves normally. I can't tell you how irritating I find it. People should have more consideration.

    Some confusion in the mind of the original poster, methinks?

    It's generally OK/alowable if they are dressed as a history teacher, have some kind of congenital defect, or are a member of the Undertones.

    Well, it's not as if he's doing anything to make it more discreet.

    By the way, you dropped an apostrophe.
