I imagine roundabouts could be challenging.  On another list a guy posted a video of some guy in Asia that took a log, and attchd scooter parts and basically made a 12-14 foot community scooter. Thing was about the dia. of a US telephone pool (Hopefully not coated in creosote/Tar like many are) and would stop along the way and people would mount up and ride along his route. Stopping was interesting and a team event, IE: Fred Flintstone brakes.    It was highly amusing.  But at my last employer I would have been written up for mentioning it as racist.  PC police, everyone is perpetually offended.  I am sure you guys can find the video, but the one I saw was an MP4 file,

** I worked at a govt agency and my wife & I are foodies, several of my friends at that job were too, and several were also ex military.  We often discussed on lunch break different foods and cultures.  Got in trouble for it as well.   Apparently, you can talk all day long about Lutefisk, Haggis, and Muenster cheese, but God forbid you mention Balut, Kimchee, or alternative proteins from visits to Philippines, Korea or Japan.
Remember that any advice received on a free internet forum is generally worth about 1/2 of what you paid for it.
