    Well he knows pharm research is pretty well screwed, Chevron pays their PhDs like 60K a year, he could stay somewhere and teach if he wants to, he's probably gonna try for this DOE internship next year, could lead to a government job down the line, he's getting published as an undergrad so he's really working hard to get lined up into a good grad program. Tough market, seems like he wants to do just research not necessarily tied to profit like the pharm companies. Any advice you could offer would be welcome on the topic.

    So general question I think I already know the answer to: Does one expend more energy pedaling at a lower RPM but pushing harder on the pedals or at a higher RPM pushing lighter on the pedals?

    1) Karate Kid (the first one)
    2) Haggar all the way.
    3) No thoughts on little birds.

    41, single, no kids, works too hard for corporate America, wish I had the money to buy a restored DeLorean. On the positive side, I have a new girlfriend, started a new job hopefully will lead to something better, on the negative side I wish I had more time to ride and lose 15 lbs.

    "wax on, wax off"

    You're in the minority so far. I did see Van Haggar play in 88 on the Monsters of Rock Tour, Metallica smoked 'em all though.

    Canned air puts me to sleep, gotta be outdoors or I feel like the walls are closing in. Eat less and aerobic HR walks will do the same thing as biking will for weight loss.

    The only reason I said Haggar was he had a better voice than D.L.R. his vocal skills far surpassed Roth, but Roth was a much better front "show man" than Sammy.

    The answer is: Energy expended is not the criterion, the criterion is which method likes your knees better.

    Well for the sake of the discussion is this, I am changing the way I ride and incorporating a higher RPM around 90 up from around 60 and at first I thought the higher RPM was more energy but now I think it's the other way around. My knees pretty much feel the same either way.

    If it's 3 questions, shouldn't the questions be, how many walkers have you killed? How many people have you killed? And why?

    Ok, here's my answers.

    1. I remember having drills in elementary school because of the ole US vs. USSR and having to go out into the hallways and sit at the walls with our heads bowed between our knees.

    2. Absolutely Sammy! 5150 is my go-to album for summer music. We constantly played it along with OU812 which came out when I got my driver's license. Played those 2 albums for many years of summer keg parties. Heck, I just cued up some Summer Nights and Cabo Wabo on the radio for the drive home on Monday since it was so beautiful and sunny out after these past few weeks of extreme cold.

    3. Hummingbirds? They're cool. Put out feeders on the front and back porch every year. One got stuck in the breezeway and I ended up with it on my finger to carry it back out. I was heading to the front porch and it rode my finger the whole way. Flew off when I got to the porch.

    How about this one.... Picture pages, picture pages, open up your picture pages, time to get your pens and your pencils.....

    1. Duck! and cover! We didn't have those. Part of where I grew up was close to the Concord Naval Weapons Station, urban folklore said it was #11 on the Soviet's list. We always figured we'd just bust out the lawn chairs and get a helluva tan.

    2. You know, wasn't really thinkin of that but yeah, those two albums were in the background of some hot summer nights.

    3. Nice!

    Picture pages? Maybe I fried a few too many neurons to remember those

    I grew up in south Florida in the early '60s. No ducking under a desk nonsense. We only had one drill; it was called the Cuban Missile Crisis, and we were in Ground Zero.
