This is a beautiful node. Thank you! I have one minor comment (emphasis mine):

The mistake that people often make is they try to understand it. (Some people make the same mistake with life, or the state of the world, or The Prisoner.)

Even if you never understand The Prisoner, like this node, it has lessons worth contemplating.

Be seeing you,
Number 17,000

Interesting timing, too. I have The Prisoner on tape (I'm so old school) and Schwern and I have been watching and arguing about it the past few days.

[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
Discipulus seems a part of the globe very unfrindly with Kawasaki riders..
[thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
[perldigious]: As long as you are a good "boy scout" stevieb, more power to you... but I like my Jeep, and don't like the idea of rolling it or crashing it in to anything. :-)
[thezip]: Me, not as much.
[perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
[stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
