Addiction LXXX

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Only ask because on the pilot boards its all over the place.

But, according to The NY Times tool I would be about 280 millionth in line

There are legit concerns with any vaccine and people will be injured or even killled, but the benefits outweigh the risks by several orders of magnitude. Humans, unfortunately, are bad at understanding that.

I mean specifically with this one.

In my undisclosed activity yesterday there were people who work in healthcare who expressed reluctance to take it because of the "new" method. Just wondering if I missed something.

Dominant hand? Either way, it sounds like a problem.

I have read about how years of non-impact training can cause bone weakness but I don't know if that has been considered in his case. He rides more than most, 15k last year and 11k this year despite hip surgery.
He has been a yo-yo dieter, up to 300 lbs and down to 175, back up to 240 and now around 200.

Sounds good. Not to get P&R, but there were other things in the conversation that were .

I saw that! The winner was a mix of 3 sighthound breeds, unsurprisingly.

Rango wasn't all that fast on the track. Only ever won a single race. He's much more in his element on a big, comfy dog bed. than on the track.

My old boss Don Francis worked for WHO, eradicating smallpox. Whenever they went to a village where there'd been a new outbreak, he'd jab himself with it first to demonstrate that it was safe. After all, these were white guys from First World countries, coming to Third World villages and telling the people "Here! Take this! It's good for you!" SO he repeatedly re-immunized himself against smallpox.

I always figured it smallpox came back and wiped out humanity, Don Francis would survive.

Yes. Left. I do just about everything with that hand except write. A month ago yesterday (Friday the 13th) I fractured the thumb in three places and detached a ligament. Ive been wearing a splint/brace that goes half way up my forearm.

The risk of osteoporosis among cyclists is well known. Agree with MoAlpha that heavy pounding workouts may help, but sadly are likely hard on our joints.

#LifeTradeoff

BTW I am not in favor of calcium supplements. There is decent evidence that they are good for your bones, but increase risk of kidney stones and some decent data say increased risk of heart disease. Better to get it from your diet, which has NOT been maligned like supplements.

I will take the vaccine if/when I can get it. Distribution channels and supply still unclear. One could argue that since one shot likely 70% effective they should defer 2nd shot until supply better and immunize twice as many people. That’s controversial of course.

​​​​​​I eat way too much dairy stuff. Maybe that will help.

I was lead to believe that the second shot is different than the first.
