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)

I realized I really need to start wearing my helmet again and I need to start wearing my camelbak again.

He threw it east. It just fell a bit short of making it back.

Yay kaz is no longer a SS/FG virgin!

On another note, don't worry about it. It's just a tap on the back. Not to mention it takes a whole lot/ possibly challenging in your case to get banned.

What kind of **** would think you are fat? I guess someone might have missed one of the hundred pictures you've posted.

Hi, welcome to The Patriarchy, Internet Edition (TM) where the most commonly used insults for women are about their appearance! Either you're a fat b***h no one would want to touch with a 10ft pole, or you're a stuck-up s**t that thinks she's too good for everyone. Sometimes combined with completely oxymoronic statements condemning her for being of loose morals while also exhorting her to put out/"t*ts or GTFO" or the like.

It has nothing to do with the object of the insult and everything to do with the person doing the insulting and his issues with women (and likely his own self esteem).

^^ Sums up how I feel about every insult I've ever received. I'm doing pretty okay in general, they're the ones who are actually ****ed up.

Today the Albanian guy came back to pick up his old Raleigh 3-speed. Because I wasn't really sure what he wanted me to do with it in the first place I gave it the once-over, did a basic tune up and gave him back half his money (he handed me 50 bucks when he dropped off and it only took me a little under a half-hour. I charge $1 per minute for labor).

He was stoked.

Possibly loves and respects Mom too much, expects other women to live up to her (in his eyes) impossible standard, then gets angry when they can't and acts out as a result?

I dunno, Kanye seems to be gaining weight, trying to keep up with Kim's baby weight. That's nice of him.
