Addiction LXXX

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Green doesn't seem like a mean colour to me, TBH.

Truth. Damn hippies are everywhere up there.

More tattoo parlors per square foot in Denton than probably any other city in Texas.

Not my thing, but what others (except my wife and kids) do with their bodies is not my business.

20k loss in total compensation, more like a decapitation than a haircut I guess

Wow, just wow! Unless you're making $500k and have some other upside.

Maybe time to start thinking about starting your own business in the same space?

I'm just guessing here. You didn't have any input on this whole merger thing, right?
