there was some talk about cycling knickers a while back. knowing the high prices of some of the brands i decided to order a pair of these. i know they are really just modified dickies workpants but i have a couple of pair of them (unmodified) and they last forever and are fairly cheap. just something to chew on for those of you who don't want to shell out $150 for a pair of the fancies. $35 you can't go wrong. i'll give a full report once they are delivered.

Not just London, but all of Europe. Their diesel is also much higher quality than here. I find it weird that Canada's diesel is actually considerably worse than the USA's. That's part of the reason we don't get any cool diesel cars here (other than the VW 1.9l tdi and the SMART fortwo).

Prime example is the Audi diesel twin-turbo V8. Jeremy from Top Gear did 800miles on a 19L tank of fuel in an Audi A8. It actually outperforms the gas powered car (I think it's around 325hp and 480lb-ft of torque), with better mileage AND (apparently) less greenhouse gas emissions. Here's a link from digg:

Why don't we have a 'cigar afficionado' party while we are at it and not let anything but foot long cubans through the door?
I'd like to slap the bartender that mixed single malt scotch with soda water. and sinlge malt is supposed to taste like a pond; it's an acquired taste. and if it tastes like a pond then J&B tastes like nail polish remover.

i thought you weren't posting at work? welcome to the dark side!

I was really only trying to point out that Operator was being, well, a typical 19 year old guy. It's a sausage-fest but one in here.

I was telling emma we should volunteer but she said she talked to jenny (who works at curbside) and Jenny said that you could just go on the ride without volunteering or fund rasing, so thats what we will probably do. What will they have you doing? we can still meet up.

And Jeremy.. Fine Scotch is a much more expensive acquired taste than beer or coffee!

Well somnambulant is pretty girly, does that count?

Gorram sausagefests. When I go running (never) it's like 9:1 women to guys. Also i'm 20 now :| Lame.

Not much, we're supposed to work in a specific area, but what I end up doing is just doing the entire course looking for problems.

Let's meet up somewhere before start. What time are you planning on going?

You and your Johnny Walker Red can hit the bricks. I think we could make the rule "single malts only" I don't care how tasty Chivas or Johnny Walker Black is...it's still a blend and that don't make the cut.
