Alphas and Betas

So StansWorld™ is now Spandex Thunderdome, and I expect full fledged very poor cage fighting to ensue shortly. I'm not sure if I should start a pool, take screenshots, cry....

We need a hero to save us from all these alpha spandex warriors. Somebody please answer the call since you know who abandoned us in our hour of need.

    Hey Gang,

    Pev Daul here. I’d like to respond by making uninformed blanket statements. Then, when someone counterpoints I’ll agree with them, then state that we should all get along.

    Finally, I’ll segue to some pointless reference to an 80s or 90s athlete or race detailing something insignificant.

    Welp, off to being a great parent Trainiacs!

    Pev

    Give us the TL;DR

    Michi Weiss apparently punched an AGer who called him a doper during a race. ST is here to analyze the situation. Weiss is a spandex wearing 150lb alpha according to a fellow alpha poster. He's also pointed out that everybody else is a beta soyboy. Names are thrown around and a battle royale at Kona is planned to settle this. Also drafting penalties make you a cheater on par with doping now.

    All clear?

    I'm not sure which thread is better, ST on Weiss or ST on diversity

    Ugh, this thread caused me to check out the slowtwitch forums for the 1st time in over a year. It will take some time for the bullshit I just waded through to wash off. What a shit show!

    I just had to go check out the ST thread on diversity. I’ve learned it is best to just skip the buildup and go straight to the latest page and dig in. Have to say several posts exceeded my expectations of madness. Thanks to a post, I now understand that triathlon is so white because the best black athletes are playing NFL and NBA so there aren’t enough left over to participate in triathlon. WTH?

    I love that Stan’s partner asked to “unpack diversity” on the fucking Slowtwitch forum. Like that’s the first time diversity has been discussed anywhere and motherfucking SLOWTWITCH is really going to get to the bottom of this.

    Jesus Christ.

    I, too, have an uneducated and ignorant perspective that I believe deserves equal representation on this topic. Thank you, internet!

    Also, Dev Paul must suffer from some sort of brain trauma. I refuse to believe anything else.

    Was it the bike crash in the early 90s in Switzerland?

    Hey Gang,

    Pev Daul here for comment.

    Dudes, please get it straight.. i crashed at IM Switzerland in the 2010s and got run over by a bus recently.

    The accidents have limited by mobility a bit (see my 712 posts describing this) but my mental abilities are fine. I can still judge people, give unwanted advice and be a general dickhead just fine thankyouverymuch.

    Having some physical downtime has allowed me to concentrate on the important things more: telling thousands of strangers everything about myself even when no one needed or wanted to hear.

    Well Trainiacs, the saying goes to “leave them wanting more” so if you need me just mention any subject and somehow I’ll be there to respond with useless stories about myself.

    Hope this helps,
    Pev

    I only comment on 80s and 90s triathlon, anything Canadian, armed forces, semi conductors, xc skiing, european mountains and my great family life.

    If its one of those subjects then I’m your man child.

    I thought we were no longer allowed to use "color" to describe someone. He's south-asian canadian.

    He's Canadian, please use "colour". This has been a friendly PSA.
