    winter/christmas/reduced daylight - leading to BF angst?

    Not sure if it's just me and a lack of sleep but the levels of angst on the forums seems to have increased significantly.

    So is it winter blues or my imagination?

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    It's your imagination. We never get angst-y or nutso around here in winter. We do get down for some holiday Foo par-tays, however.

    My theory...Since the departure of Cypress from Foo, all the angst that floats around is now looking for a new outlet. Since there is none quite like the Cypress, all this angst is building up and effecting everyone

    I'm hoping good telemarking/skiing/snowboarding/etc. will exhaust any excess angst then.

    Bingo. Is he still posting the mtb forums or is has he vanished off the face of the BF?

    As often happens, people infer the wrong causal relationship within a correlation.

    BF angst actually causes winter, Christmas, and reduced signlight. Not the other way around.
