Addiction 2021.1

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Because, among other reasons, when you nick shaving the shower will wash off the blood and by the time you've finished it will stop and you're good to go.

Good luck with that.

I found two of those on Ebay. Luckily neither was my size! I'd have to find a Period Correct 140mm stem.

The window is slowly closing on pickup up the C'dale this afternoon. Only another 40 minutes. If he emails after that, I wouldn't be able to make it today before 6! *fingers drumming on desktop*

Maybe. I'd just like to know if it's about indoors/outdoors, why did we have a surge in August? Or if transmission is highly impacted by masks/distancing, why the death rate in Rhode Island is 236 while it's 144 in Florida?

I could go on.

Follow up question: now that I'm on a blood thinner for A Fib and also have a achy back, is Tylenol/acetaminophen safe for me to take in a pinch? I would probably limit it to bedtime.

Have you ever heard of Air Conditioning? In most of the South, where the second surge hit, most people spend most of their time inside, in air conditioning. This is what most people overlooked when they expected warm weather to cut transmission.

Or if transmission is highly impacted by masks/distancing, why the death rate in Rhode Island is 236 while it's 144 in Florida?
The population density of Rhode Island is roughly 3x that of Florida.

I could go on.
No, don't bother.

See, if you listened to me, you'd have a better skin regimen and you wouldn't have such troubles with nicks and whatnot. But, since you don't listen to anyone here, I won't bother telling you why, but a quick search should elucidate you.

Also: alum block.

Two extra strength (500mg) or three regular (325mg).

And yes, if on blood thinners then Tylenol is safest bet.

I hope to get out on a decent ride tomorrow, too. Gravel bike, though - still too messy for the Cervelo.

Due to the shape of my neck, in particular, I don't believe close shaving is possible without the occasional nick. Unless the razors bend to match the surface.

Granted I live in the quasi-south, not the south, but it seemed to me that people were running their air conditioners in June and July, too. Everyone didn't suddenly head inside in August (which was actually cooler than recent years).

As for population density, see if you can spot any states at the top of the list that don't fit your explanation:

This is the problem dealing with laymen - they can only think in terms of a single variable at a time.

Now, now. Just because we haven’t identified all the determining factors doesn’t mean the system isn’t deterministic. As for Florida and RI, everyone was tsk-tsking because of all the pictures of maskless yahoos on the beach, where no one was going to transmit anything, when the action was in the donut shops. I blame the mainstream media.

You skipped DE safety razors and jumped right to straight razors? Kudos!
