Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

As far as I know, that cat is doing A-OK. Haven't seen that cat around lately but haven't heard anything negative otherwise.

I ran into him while riding a few weeks back. I had to take him out because he was pushing a bigger gear than me.

DV and i used to be v-good pals, but had a falling out. This may have to do with his leaving the board. It was pretty high-school.

Vegans are pretty sensitive. I think you shoulda eased up with the meat jokes.

careful you too:
The bikeforums be SOOOO litigious. I heard lawyers are lining up to fulfill all the legal actions pending. I have considered retaining the services of one "Schiek," DC Metro Power lawyer.

Get off your "I've been cooler than you are" high saddle and you'll learn to appreciate humour.

'Get off your "I've been cooler than you are" high saddle'

I'll have you know, my inseam is only 32". Regardless, Either you read far too much into my posts, or I must be innately cooler than I ever cared to be.

Either way, I'm intriqued by your peculiar fascination with my demeanor.

Your friend,

Steve

I'm still around... I've just been insanely busy recently. When school starts on Monday, I'll have more time to check in on the forums.

Hey, the only reason I was there was to try and get into Katie Holmes' pants... unfortunately she wasn't there, so I had to settle for Mary Beth Peil.

I'm a recovering vegan; still vegetarian, and I eat very little eggs or dairy. Without being able to eat cheese, I lost my appetite and 20 lbs in a very short span of time.

That makes me feel almost bad to be sitting here drinking beer and whiskey and eating a 10 pack of white castle mozzarella sticks and a half pound cheeseburger from wendys...

Almost...



Okay, it doesn't. Sorry. Food is food. Most food animals on the planet wouldn't exist in their current gene scheme without humans. And we wouldn't exist without them. It's just part of life on Earth. Life eats life.. That's just what life does, all the way down to the cellular level. I don't like the idea of it being institutionlalized (sp) into fast food, but when I'm faced with staying up having not having anything to eat that might fill me up (I'm a BAD chef) or drinking a bit instead of eating, I'll choose eating a 1/2 pound of beef and a couple of moxxarella sticks, it's not really much of a choice...

Most of my food is plant form though. Distilled plant extract. 80 proof... Mmm...

Uh yeah, what was I talking about?

Is it a moral thing, or a health thing?

People who eat just fish (high quality) as their meat are healthier than pure vegetarians because of the good things in fish meat/fat.

I'm vegetarian....practically vegan. I started for health reasons - most meat has had some pretty nasty stuff done to it. Now it's more of a financial/habitual thing. Meat and cheese is $$$$.

The best thing that going vegetarian did for me was force me to learn how to cook. I almost never eat out now.

I like the idea of it, I think most people would feel differently if they had to butcher their animals.
I'll probably always eat eggs and fish, and occasionally when someone's grilling it's just too hard to resist.

I've had to help butcher my animals before. Elk.

They were yummy afterwards, but it was a slightly sickening experience (15 years old, I think)....

Anyways...

(I'm putting that at the end of everything now...)
