I’m not a serious runner, but when the weather isn’t too bad I’ll dial in a three to five mile run about three to five times per week. One of my favorite post-run rituals is crushing beer in the shower. I have always thought of the benefits as twofold in nature: drinking beer in the shower is AWESOME, and when I put the foamer on the floor of the shower then I have to stretch the ol’ hammies each time I want a sip. This blog post tries to bring a little science into the discussion about drinking beer after running. Apparently science is hard.
So scientistsare saying that changes in arctic sea ice &c. will make it colder in Europe and North America. It clearly follows that we’re not warming the planet, we’re cooling it off! Coal for everybody!
“You (have) to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot (expletive) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”—
Also, I saw an infographic claiming that Americans drink 325 million gallons of beer during the Superbowl. I find it difficult to believe. A few pretty basic computations (the big one relating to US population coming in at around 312 million) and feeding some questions to the googler revealed my suspicions to be well-founded. There is a lot of information out there and most of it is slightly more complex than your average infographic. Continuing this trend, if not my rant, I only did enough research to confidently debunk the numbers I saw. Feel free to let me know what the realities are.
It snowed a lot in Denver this past weekend. There was no work on Friday and we still have glaciers in the streets. This video is also a reason that i’m glad I’m not 16. Sorry for the link, but I couldn’t embed the flick because it’s up there with some janky player.
Medium-form writing. This one’s about how to get burgled and then get your stuff back in North Philly. It is not a piece on what a machine gun is or that a bolt action rifle cannot, by definition, be a machine gun. Firearms also make a poor choice for home decoration. Books are better. The cops think that this bro is an idiot and he probably is.
I mean, I’m generally a fan of planners giving cyclists the attention they need, but i’m having a hard time understanding this one. We seem to have more trouble with bikes in intersections when either cyclists or cars try too make a light that they can’t or (in Denver) get in a politer-than-thou situation where everyone is giving out right-of-way like candy at a Fourth of July parade. It would be nice if those fancy inductive loop lights could sense cyclists, but I think the current system works pretty well otherwise.
