If I had time to ride hundreds of km each summer (not even thousands) I’d be in much better shape, so definitely not stupid. Maybe in a few years …
“Huge kudos for Jasmin Paris, the British ultrarunner who has just won the 268-mile Spine Race along the full Pennine Way, in a record time while expressing milk for her 14-month-old daughter, Rowan, along the way. She crossed the line in 83 hours, 12 minutes and 23 seconds – more than 12 hours faster than the previous record holder, Eoin Keith (95:17). Paris is the first woman to win the race outright.” " She is a small-animal vet working at the University of Edinburgh" (for the search-impaired)
I think they’re referencing the fact that interesting human facts and achievements get swamped by the overcommercialized team sports, most of which are male gladiator contests (sometimes with padding).
Hmmm. Macallan and sardines. They’re great if you dunk ’em.
It made sense as I was typing it :-) “melted snow”? The point was, instead of cutting snow/ice/packed-snow blocks and lifting and building, melt and spray.
Military developed a similar technique for erecting temporary shelters, inflatable + spray melted water to build up ice layer. Obvious problem that you can’t heat it, but great for storing supplies.
Trail-riding colleague and I used to discuss biking. He thought I was nuts for riding on the road with cars and trucks; I thought he was nuts for riding in the woods with rocks and trees.
Is it “racism” or “regionalism”? And could the same be said of a lot of conflicts – mid-country vs. coasts, north vs. south?
If you let “the data speak for themselves” then they say “human beings burn stuff and make a lot more smoke and soot and pollution than would naturally occur, especially since they started digging up coal and pumping up oil in the last 200 or so years”. You must be ignoring the data you don’t like, which means you are knowingly being untrue about “let the data speak for themselves”.
As a tenant and customer, I hate February; I pay the same monthly fee for two fewer days than any other month. Or I could just solace myself that on long-term (yearly) deals, it all averages out.
