(I don’t know how we got here on a bike clothes thread.)
Both? It would guarantee no comebacks, but I could be dead wrong.


{not sure how this thread got flipped-turned upside down}

Not even close! Those people taking the concoction go through agony, long drawn-out agony, Google it! The other more humane way is the way that places like Iran etc that take swords and whack off the head, dying is similar to the guillotine, if the sword is done in one swoop.

The interesting thing about beheadings is that even though the head has been severed, there still is enough blood in the brain to keep the victim conscious for anther 3-5 seconds. Can;t imagine looking around with my head in a basket or rolling on the ground before lights-out.

Ah, absolute nonsense. Thiopentone was a commonly used induction agent for general anaesthesia. If you had an operation in the 80s or earlier you almost certainly had it. Propofol has replaced it, but it’s still in the cabinet for rapid sequence inductions.

Vecuronium, the paralysis drug, is still in widespread use. It lasts a long time, so people err towards rocuronium, but they’re the same drug essentially.

Ok, potassium chloride isn’t given routinely as a bolus, but the person is well and truly asleep when it’s given.

Thiopentone is a horrible drug if given into an artery or if the cannula has tissued and into the subcutaneous tissue, but this is exceedingly rare and just affects the arm.

If the drip is in and flushing well (very easy to check) lethal injection is definitely the way to go. As I’ve said it’s literally a general anaesthetic.

Haven't read the thread, but has it digressed into a "does your carpet match your drapes" thing?

Matching Clothes for Cycle and Helmet

So, i was just wondering how many of you buy clothes that match your bike, or full kits, etc. Personally, I buy whatever fits well and is relatively inexpensive - it's not like i'm training for the Tour de France...

I don't think that without Matching the Cycle and Helmet You should For the ride It Depends if the Matching clothes are Available you should wear it According to the Color of your Cycle and Helmet.
If it is not available then it's okay to go with what you have.

I actually pay a bit more attention to what I'm wearing on the bike than I do in normal clothes. I don't tend to go for "matchy-matchy" colour-coordinated kit though. More neutral hardware (grey bike, black helmet, black or white shoes) and then maybe a splash of colour on the jersey, current favourites being sky blue and orange.

I enjoy getting my kit to look OK.

The OP (long ago) mentioned hot dressed slow riders and I thought about last week when a pair of riders with totally matched kit & bikes FLEW past me on a paved bike trail.

Buddy thought they might be here for the Gran Fondo NY on the 15th, and probably taking a rest day ride on the flats.

Does your cycling performance match the bike you are riding?

Parse this just right and you would do Dr. Seuss proud.

It’s an optical illusion because of the camera angle.
