And syr, just buy some cheap 125cc bike and use the motor to drive your walker.
By the time Syrillian needs a walker, all "walkers" will have teleportation functionality as a standard feature.

No need for motor- would be cool though.McS, white text is for special messages, not for making messages invisible.

@ McStuff: You forgot rule number 5. Edit in your white text after posting your message.

EDIT: Also, white text is REALLY easy to spot on a good monitor because the forum background is not white(but very very close).

I guess that'd be good, but usually I add white text from the beginning. Also, the edit tag draws attention to the post.

Also, most people don't look that carefully. Unless it really draws their attention (see my tips for making it less evident), they probably won't notice because they're looking for black text. But most of the time white text is a 50/50 gamble. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

EDIT: I was browsing a motorcycle forum, and I found an incredible picture of an upcoming bmw supersport with amazing carbon fiber panels:

Like I said above, your goal isn't to prevent EVERYONE from reading your message. If you don't want anyone to see your message, simply don't write it.

EDIT- Almost forgot to address this:

I don't see your name on those tools... and I know they are not yours. They belong to your school. I'm still way jealous.

Most, if not all, supersports are watercooled. Although that doesn't look like a watercooling tube. It looks like the shifting/clutch line to me.
