The usual reasons.

And then there's the Maskchinnians, who, yes, are wearing masks, but over their (usually) double chins.

I found the same on flights to DC and back, though the percentage of 'off the nose' types was fairly low. Biggest disappointment was the total absence of masks at the grocery store in PA. These are EXACTLY the people who are causing the current wave and who will pay the biggest price for it.

Bike shop Project of the Day:

Customer busted up his fancy Dura Ace wheel, but the hub was a-okay. So, I laced it to a DT Swiss RR411 rim with some AeroLite spokes. The new wheel is about 40 grams lighter than the original.

What happened to that DA rim? Press brake?

It kind of is for the bike shop. It's also the start of cyclocross season.

The rider can't recall. He was chasing back onto the group, after helping someone else with a mechanical. Next thing he knew, he was in a ditch. The broken rim was the worst of the damages. He had a little rash and the rest of the bike only had minor scrapes.

If I wanted to do that to a rim I'd probably use a press brake, just sayin.

Mets are going to need some timely hitting to win this.

A good cover of a Lucinda Williams song on their upcoming album. Their second collaboration. I prefer the original however.

Nope. I dreamed that Knoxville Community Band met at a new location and no one knew where to sit. Pure chaos.

Bad Friday the 13th omen.

You could wear the normal things people wear when riding a bike. But you aren't riding a bike, you're riding a fake bike.
