This was confirmed to me by professor Pat Pending of the ACME Black Paint Company (the bit about air viscosity not leg shaving)
Don't talk crap....we don't all shave our legs (thats an Essex thing!) Just our heads and chest. Thats good for 2MPH
And another thing I told you not to reveal my real name
