Different calculation might come into play depending on how much money you have.

Nice rocky creek shore, but a paucity of good skipping stones.

I used to get together with the guys, quarterly. Out at the cabin, anything goes. I walk up the hill and into camp and there is a small group skipping stones, trying to hit the plastic flamingo on the island. I set down my cooler, pick up a stone and wing it. One skip and dead center. Shrug my shoulders, pick up my cooler and walk on in the rest of the way. There were some dropped jaws behind me.

Android or a proprietary device like Garmin or Wahoo?

What are Hershey's Kisses called in Spain? As I was leaving after my root canal today, the dentist thanked me for the payment, and I I'm turn thanked her for the besos. ¿Que? There are Hershey's Kisses in the candy dish.

Back in Spring of 2021, I started buying C&V bikes. My first purchase was a 1989 Schwinn Circuit, with its Columbus tubing, chrome fork and chain and seat stays, and Sante groupset. I thought at the time I overpayed a bit, $450, but it turned out that the bike had ALL the original bits in good condition, including the barely-used original Rolls saddle - and they go for $70 and up in Ebay! So, in the end, I didn't mind over paying just a little, even if the frame is kinda small and required a new seatpost and 130mm stem to fit me.

Maybe 6 months later, another 1989 Circuit pops up on Ebay, this time in my size. But they want $800, and $200 for shipping. And that bike has been languishing there for close to a year now. They have the option of making an offer, but I doubt they'd take what I'd offer.

Last week, someone listed ANOTHER Circuit on Ebay, also my size. This one's listed for $1200.

This morning, someone else listed YET ANOTHER Circuit, again in 23". This one's listed for $1800!

In watch collecting, we used to see this sometimes. You won't see any listings of a particular watch for years, and then one gets listed and suddenly there's a bunch of them listed. We call it "Monkey See, Monkey Do".

Oooh, look what just popped up down in Tempe. NOS Circuit for $750. +150 shipped.

I think you call them besos but not positive. Besos de chocolate.

The creek that runs by the town I grew up in, where I often played as a ute, has a couple spots where the creek makes a slight turn, and the rock pile up on the outside of the curve. Lots of good skipping stones. Our goal was always to make them *skip..........skip....skip..skip.skipskipskipskipskimmmmmm* before sinking. For those you had to throw low and put a lot of spin on them. And it helped to skip them across a fairly smooth pool, because with turbulence they'd often bounce up and just skip once before hitting the other bank.

Oooh the same guy has a Paramount that I could probably ride. Apparently he sold the orig Circuit seat to a guy for $100, I reckon the Paramount's saddle must've met a similar fate :(

my wife and I were a bit outside your guidelines, so I guess you are classifying me as a creep. 🤔

That pizza looked good. What type of grill/oven did you use?

Rules are meant to be broken.

If you’re not cheating, you’re only cheating yourself.

Everything is a guideline.

I'm pretty energetic. I had a nap, 2 scoops of whey, and about 12 oz of fresh pineapple and blueberries

Maybe a nice Van Halen song would help. They were trending on Twitter either last night or this morning, I thought you'd be all over that one!
