  3. Uh, seems like "several times" goes in the opposite of luck category
  4. Music wise, when I was say 30 or under, I listened to music on the RADIO all the time in the car. If it wasn't music on the radio, it was music on a CD. In any case, post-30, I drove less and when I did listen to the radio, it was to NPR or even just news/traffic/weather. I add maybe 10% of what I used to to my music collection these days. Went from like a CD a week back in 80s/90s, to a CD-equivalent a month or less these days. But also never stream music, yet will put on the classic rock Music Choice channel during dinner prep.

  7. It's amazing how many morans don't know these simple facts.

    Butt hole news

    Yet, why did it take so long????
  9. It's all BUSINESS! No frills. No fun stuff. Just a get 'er done attitude.
  10. And, from Peloton Mag (hard to tell if this is independent article or a "featured" (ie paid for) story but it gives the story behind Trek's new helmets): We hear lots of noise about ‘revolutionary’ new products in cycling. They are essentially never revolutionary, and frequently aren’t even new. But when Trek starts teasing a new product with the tag, “A change like this happens once every 30 years.” We’re pretty sure it’s a big deal. Speculation started. Was the lime green material teased a new frame material? Trek launched OCLV carbon about 30 years ago. But the biggest clue was Bontrager touted the material as well, and it did look a bit like the Koroyd material used in Smith helmets. Now we know. Bontrager is incorporating a new material called WaveCel into its helmets, which it claims is 48x more effective than EPS foam at preventing concussions during unplanned dismounts. • WaveCel is a collapsible cellular material that reduces the effect of oblique head impacts that generate the rotational forces that can cause so much brain trauma. • WaveCel is an alternative to the now ubiquitous MIPS layer used by Bontrager in many helmets and most other helmet manufacturers as well. • According to a study at the Legacy Research Institute in Portland, Oregon, WaveCel is significantly more effective than MIPS in reducing both linear impact forces and rational forces on the brain. • While similar in appearance to Koroyd used by Smith, Koroyd equipped helmets still use a MIPS layer. • WaveCel adds a little over 50grams compared to non-WaveCel helmet’s weight. As most people in cycling now now, its not the blunt impacts we should fear, it’s the oblique, angular impacts at high speed that cause so many concussion as well as life altering traumatic brain injury. Brain cells do not respond well the shearing forces. In the 10-15 milliseconds after an oblique impact it’s crucially important to spread that force out with 10-15mm of movement. If the helmet doesn’t provide that movement, your brain provides it by rotating in your skull. Yeah, that’s as bad as it sounds. Axons connecting brain cells go ‘snap’.
  11. Uh, my youtube and Dennis' comment are about the new helmet material that is REVOLUTIONARY. Or, it might be but I haven't seen it in person yet. WaveCel.
  12. Since when do we care about proper spelling?

  14. The moon was spectacular yesterday evening before the sun went down. I was walking the dog, and was stunned by how it looked against the blue sky.
  15. I'm not sure why anyone would ever actively choose any type of Budweiser. Or Coors. Or Miller. Just too many better options and more interesting paths to go down.
  16. You prefer a different color? Go crazy!
  17. Jeebus. @jsharr covered this in his normal guys clothing video!
  18. Did you fail to notice the progression of my title??? Spring! SPring! SPRIng! SPRING!!!!!!!!! Clearly, this indicated today's approach of the beautiful change from Winter to Spring !!!!! I even took the light off my commuter bike!!! Just blinkies now.
  19. You tell us. Do you like to read books or is that a lie?
  20. Has he been here 4x longer than me? How long was he the n00b?
