Fleet is forming

I'm getting faster. My Zipps arrive later this week. I might wind up being a danger to someone other than myself.

I'll tell you the same thing I told EDR: You'll get even faster if you let me take out your colon... I think it would have a massive impact on your watts per kilogram given how full of ***** you can be...

Because I'm not... I'm working in a research lab these days. Working a regular 40-hour week feels like vacation.

How many grams would a complete colonoscopy save? I'll consider it.

Unfortunately I would still be full of *****.

I just dumped like 3-4 pounds easy.

Word of advice: softest toilet paper you can buy, and wet wipes for your ass. After around hour 4, wiping starts to suck a lot.

It should be rather obvious that I merely started this thread as a pretext for flipping the 'Form is Fleeting' title around. I consider generating venues for meaningless BF banter a challenge to my bullsh!t skills. My refined NY bullsh!t skills I might add. As for being full of *****, I consider that a highly prized personal asset that far supercedes any silly amateur bicycle racing nonsense.

I need this place as an outlet for the endless stream of mental drivel that seeps out of my soggy brain. If you hadn't noticed.
