I thought it meant IN BEFORE THE LOCK. Suggesting all rational conversation was lost.
If you are a 12 stepper, I can assure you, that your idea of rational conversation is not rational. Only circular logic applied to religious questions.

I've never yet used electrolytes but find myself taking advantage of food halfway through my rides since I came back from an 11 year hiatus. Maybe some of it is due to conditioning early in the season but I've bonked on a 50 + mile ride without eating a rice cake or some parmesan cheese covered boiled potatoes. I used to not need to eat so soon on rides but it seems I'm stronger going back home when I do now.

Well I think I figured out part of the problem. When I went out for next ride, while inflating and inspecting my tires I noticed a big green oily spot on the rear tire. The substance was slime from inner tube and my rear tire was under inflated. I think I was pulling a partially flat tire around for most of my 50 miles.
