Ummm.....I don't think I learned anything new today.
Yesterday was a much different story though.
1999 Trek 2500 - hit by a car on it in May, 2011 and currently bikeless
Today I "learned" how to bunny hop over things. I knew in theory how to do it before but could never quite make it work
I learned that Malistryx will never have sex with me.

That the delete key on SpongeDad's keyboard is the REALLY big one I couldn't see.
I learned that cylcocross is possible on my Scott.
I learned that clippin' out when going up a 5% grade in 53x21 can be done.
This will get me about 4-5 CM in the air, which is enough to clear debris when you are traveling 40 KPH.
On a MTB you want to preload those pedals since the bike is so much heavier. Pump your legs like you would on a skate/surfboard, then imagine yourself jumping up and pulling the bike under your legs and arms as you pull up and over.
Just like an ollie. Sort of.
Today I learned about hot chicks that ride bicycles in Canada. (Thanks randya)
It seems as though I have to relearn the same thing every other day. I can't count on anyone but myself. Everyone else is just so unreliable and can't be there for you. ****.
I've been learning this the hard way everyday for a week now.
No matter how many hot chicks I date, or cool buds I hang with, at the end of the day I'm alone.
Without purpose, that could be hell. Today I learned that the remedy for disappointment is to make an appointment with yourself, do something constructive in that time, and then repeat.
You would be amazed at how many millions of people reach out to the unneedy every day to offer their help.
It's not philosopy...
...it's just that, when you learn stuff, your mind tends to start thinking. Then you get depressed. Then you start to forget a little...then you drink some whisky, or ride your bike down that dangerously dumb hill, or hook up with the girl you know is no good for you...then you forget a lot and start to become happy and grin.
Until that fateful day comes when you become a little less dumb, and the hurtin' begins again.
