Tonight's YouTube find.

I'm learning what cycling was like back when DougRNS was in his prime.

Do you adjust your saddle often?

I'll take my aged plastic bike over the ones shown there.

No, but odds are they're not going to perfectly position it.

In the above movie it shows Merckx fussing with his saddle position at least twice. If he can do it, why not me?

Probably not as dangerous as a fast train.

Fortuna, ND might be OK, only a 2 hour drive to beautiful Regina, SK. Might be too tornadoey though.

Used to be very common and still happens occasionally.

Lattitude, not longitude. VV must have been asleep during science and geography classes.

Seeds, now try to explain to him why poinsettias are grown in Mexico and not Tennessee. It’s germane to his confusion.

Three factors:

latitude
axial tilt
position in time zone relative to solar time

I don't think he understands axial tilt
Without which there would be no seasons nor changes in day length
Sad!
