my brother is on it and he likes it. Pisses like a Russian race horse. I was considering adding it to my ever-growing list of medications that keep me functioning. Side effects?

Maybe I should get a gravel bike and not ride it either.

I think you know the answer.

I enjoyed the movie "Drum Line".

It is for discerning music fans.

What are the differences in the way the following types of horses piss: Russian Race horse, American thoroughbred, Clydesdale, dray horse, and Quarter Horse? Discuss.

Fun fact: flomax causes floppy iris syndrome. It’s only an issue if you are having cataract or similar eye surgery.

I've never raced, too much of a wuss. Riding with racers on their training rides and riding in hundreds of fast group rides convinced me I could never be competitive. I did enjoy toying with and taunting racers when they blew up in the hills. Also liked hammering on the flats with fast groups but once the climbs start I go backwards.
These days I'm usually a PITA to the faster groups which is why I'm happy when others are there who are slower than I am.

I wouldn't necessarily say that I'm a wuss, but yeah - my concern over crashing centers more on pain, suffering and the financial burden of medical treatment rather than concern over the cost of the bike, which would be rather minor, compared to the rest, IMO.

Felt like my head had been filled with foam sealant when I woke up. Better now, but still “off.” Does work as advertised, however.

Not yet…

Saw that and the recommendation to be off for nine (9) months! Reminds me. I have to go get cleared for scopolamine before the summer and I know those mofos are sharpening their little knives for me, whether it’s the narrowing angle, the cataracts or whatever.

Yes and saddle time seems to make it worse.

Feeding activity. I've spotted cardinals, blue jays, and other birds. #BirdWatching

I AM a wuss. When I rode with PenVelo, as part of being a club member you had to help out with the Burlingame Criterium, which was a downtown crit. You help set up the barriers, then serve as marshalls on the course, then tear down. The speed and tight pack dynamics, and occasional crashes put me off wanting to race IRL. But I do like Zwift racing, because there's the competition, and tactics, but no crashes.

I had started to have the usual age and Y chromosome-related issues, but when my doc put me on HCTZ for hypertension, they seem to have gone away and stayed away. So far.
