Addiction 2021.3

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

Heh. In 2000 I spent the summer touring out west then came back home and went to the beach. A group of young women chuckled at me when the saw my tan lines while I was wearing just a pair of swim trunks. My arms were especially funny. Almost like a black and white cookie.

I got soaked on yesterday's ride and never left my garage - I ended up Zwifting, because time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping...into the future.

Auto accident activity this afternoon. A guy ignored the stop sign and pulled out in front of me. He did stop (not hit and run), and his car has insurance, supposedly. But he's from Honduras, apparently, and he doesn't have a license.

Adds character. Others will be less likely to fool with you now.

The guy looked in his 20s. There were three other guys in the car and apparently none of them have a license. He was going to have to wait for someone with a license to come drive his car away.

It would be nice if people on the roads knew how to properly drive.

Hey, you know what the difference is between 'Hondas' and 'Honduras'?

You are.

(When I played football, the coach like to put up little inspirational things, like "Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing". One of them, "The difference between Champ and Chump is YOU!" always made me think, "The difference between Champ and Chimp is I!!")

You mean the way people argue bad points about irrelevant crap for page after page, growing more and more obscure and silly? Or the fact that half the time when you click a link it times out?
