Not technically riding in either.
I'm in the red/gray windbreaker, or the blue thermal depending on the picture.
evenes is the one on the cross bike, gaozilla is the one with the camera.
hbk, when are you going to sack up and ride with us? You missed an awesome one last night.
Pretty sure its this week, but if not, definitely next week.
Your call dude. I understand you have your priorities. You gotta understand that I'm trying to get you into something pretty sweet though.

Not hating on you. Just your school lol. I've been through three high schools; public, military boarding, and Catholic. The only one that did that was Missouri Military Academy in East Jesus, MO. That school sucked so ****ing hard, and they had the same policy. Good job, school admin, you passed a ******** ass policy. Hope tuition justifies such a ****ing fallacy.

I assume the athletic requirement is to keep kids from getting fat. Which is a good thing.
Your school would best just offer vegan options at lunch. That way, if you're not fat, bring your own ****. But no, that would make way too much sense.
Pizza is a vegetable.
At my high school, if I was in a varsity sport I got to skip gym class and have a study hall instead. Win.
At your school, make them offer only humus, flatbread, tortilla and vegetables. See how many fat kids bring in their pizza, and see that a school trying to fix that problem won't do didily squat.
Here are a couple of reasons/an explanation of why we have an athletic requirement:
1. Grade 9-10 has to participate in 2 sports each year (we have trimesters)
2. 1 of those sports can be "fitness" (which is pretty much 3 hours at the gym each week)
3. Grades 11-12 only have to participate in 1 sport/fitness each year.
4. We have no offered PE in high school.
I think that is fair.
And the fact that they don't offer PE is hilarious and example of fixing what isn't broken. Sure, give the kids more time for actual education, but take away their free time, which for me, in high school, was equally important in terms of growth and enjoyment.
All I am saying is that your school sounds like a load of ****ing revolutionaries that don't think their **** through. No offense to your parents for sending you there.
Not sure why you're getting so worked up about it...? His school's situation sounds fair to me. I'd much rather play a real sport than go to gym class.
Rebalancing school lunches is great, but so is exercise.
