    that sounds about right. my orthotics were close to that about 4 years ago. of course, they were covered by my insurance plan. i'm up for a new pair soon. maybe my insurance company can buy me a new pair of sidis?

    same here, but replace "mom asked" with "wife demanded". so what it really boils down to is if i don't wear a helmet i'm not getting any.

    in relation to the BBQ, we should at some point in the warm future be like a bangladeshi family and gather as many riders as we can to go out to the island or other park with a bag of charcoal and a cooler full of meat for a giant public bbq. Also beer. I've always been jealous of those giant park parties and have on occasion been tempted to mooch some food off of them.

    When I used to walk the dog I'd always have to be careful to spot these parties well in advance, because my dog would charge towards them full speed, generally making everyone scatter in a panic, and then he would steal some food and everyone would get so furious at me I swore I was going to be killed! Total vibe killer!

    One time he sauntered up behind a little muslim girl with an ice cream cone, who then turned around and shrieked while my dog took off the top of her cone in one messy bite. Mother and father started screaming at me so there were 3 different people screaming at once! I didn't really know what to do so I just pushed 5 bucks at the guy and ran off with the dog! Darn greedy labradors!

    To be the Devil's Advocate here....most folks from Asia don't EVER see dogs as pets. It's a trip for them, as they are dirty, filthy scavenging mongrels on the streets, never to be allowed in one's house let alone sleep in your bed. As well, I'd be kinda pissed you hadn't controlled your dog in a park. It's called a leash.

    i'm a dog person (and my dog is a maniac who now has to be muzzled in public) so i tend to be understanding around other people's disruptive dogs, but i believe that as an owner you have to assume that people don't like your dog in their face, on their picnic bench etc. and so you should take steps to prevent it. at least, in the city anyway. in the country dogs can wander around and generally behave as they like and no one seems to mind. it's great.

    I totally understand and respect that, and I always tried my best to keep him away from anyone who looked like they could be remotely put off by him. But when you have huge bbqs 30 feet away from off leash dog parks its bound to happen evenetually! I don't really know what I'm trying to say here and I don't want to defend any particular viewpoint on this... I guess people just really get angry about stuff...

    i guess the point is: dogs will be dogs! he ate a damn ice cream cone; it's not like he bit anybody.

    where was this, in high park? i stopped taking my dog there.

    This was the top section of riverdale farm, just before it slopes down to the off leash area. It was a block and a half away from my house so thats where 95% of his walks happened. I didn't really mean to open this up for debate, I was just relating it in passing since I was thinking about large park bbqs

    hehehe.. I'm listening to music on my ipod and I swear every song that comes on I think "Hey! I love this song!"

    Of course, the fact that I'm listening to the playlist "My Top Rated" on shuffle *might* have something to do with it.

    I'm not too quick on the uptake today.

    also: definitely down for a bbq on the island. I plan on spending many weekends there this Summer... disc-golf-a-rama.
