Here’s something to ponder.
lolpatagonia. I see they’re really pushing the c. 2008 hipster thing here. New York is the worst. Nice Teepee, dude. I want to see these bros have at it with the bros from Summer Sessions.
In more uplifting news, snow!
Things in Ukraine are absolutely crazy right now. I am having a hard time understanding it. It seems like we should be hearing more in the media about the story, but coverage has been somewhat scant.

Oh, now we can learn about the biketraincycles?! A trance professor from California has an ergonomically appropriate computer monitor prop made from a repurposed book about tance.

Also some idiot driver is concerned that bikes mean he’s going to crash because his other option is to “do a hit and run.” LA is a hard town, man.
