  • Vaporflys - Are they legit?

    All I know is that they only made them up to a size 13. So, basically they're saving us big runners from the inevitable calf injuries that being big and trying to run in something like that would cause. Thank you, Nike.
  • Martini Saturday approaches - reserve your copy of Caddyshack today!

    I love that part when the bowsprit snaps off.
    @AaronWebstey , can @wchevron get a badge for first confirmed use of the word "bowsprit"? Not only a serious fan of Caddyshack, but clearly a trained mariner. A Dartmouth boy has to be impressed. Maybe bowsprit becomes the next eggscellent.....
    The Bowsprit is also the name of the very much shortened indoctrination book given to participants at the Coast Guard Academy’s “Academy Introduction Mission” which is sorta like high school summer camp for interested kids except they get yelled at and build robots. I never had a Bowsprit (but I have sat in/on one!), only a Running Light (hooray more esoteric nautical terms!) which is what the actual incoming freshmen get to memorize while being yelled at.

  • The bad question, why do people cheat?

    The actual page has since been removed and clicking him returns a 404 error...but they gotta fix the main page to remove him from there too. Whoops.

  • Let's See Your Critters

    @M_Ware I still might in the relatively near future. I'm in a condo now, too, so a dog is a bit more of a pain than if I had a backyard. It depends where I end up after grad school, so a backyard and minimal/no work travel makes me more inclined to get one.
    Plus, if I can't take care of a fish that naturally lives in the puddles in rice paddies, should I really be entrusted to take care of something larger and needier? (Note: I only allowed myself this once I got my "keep plants alive for at least a month" ratio above 75%)

  • Ever crashed on the trainer?

    One of our first indoor rides of the year with my college's tri club, something wasn't quite right with either the skewer, legs not even, or....something on the trainer because one of the girls on our team fell off, causing a slight domino effect.
    It's why I now make sure I'm on the outside of the group so I can only get domino'ed from one person.
