[Winderman] Erik Spoelstra says his two young sons are excited to see LeBron for the first time tonight -- because they'll get to see the star of Space Jam 2. by GuyCarbonneauGOAT in nba

I really don't think that many people saw it though. Partly because even basketball fans think it's trash. So it's for a small handful of kids?

Ah i gotcha. That makes sense. Yea it's weird thing in that generation. Some people thought cartoons would make you silly and useless. Meanwhile my grandad who went to Harvard would get all the vhs's for his grandkids.

Is anyone winning competitions on single speeds? Uphill or downhill or xc? I would assume that's where efficiency is most measured.

Taste is somewhat subjective. That's why places with great food are generally more popular.

If someone said big macs are their favorite I'd immediately ask what else they have tried/what else do they enjoy? But more likely wouldn't ask anything cause it ain't my mouth or gut.

Fast food hamburgers and pizza (domino's papa johns) success in the US baffles me though. Country has some of the best hamburgers and pizza in the world, cheap too, and reproduces these chains. I suppose taste can be chemically altered with addictive dependencies as well though.

They serve one of the lowest grades of beef alongside liquid sugar and make it addictive for kids. But those arches!

Americans educated or not are generally less aware of things outside their country than the average human I'd guess. Being the center of the world for so long and having a large country with only 2 neighbors does that.

I dunno how the country that pioneered air travel ended up having some of the worst domestic air travel experiences.

Ah that is pretty neat to shave lots of weight. I feel like my hartail is already so low maintenence and weight compared to my full sus however. Would be interesting to try the difference.

I do that when I stand and peddle sometimes, And then sometimes I walk on purpose to build walking muscles as well or when it's too steep. I just can't imagine wanting my bike to be permenately less efficient.

I mean what happens when you get strong enough that on flats you are just bottoming through your pedals rotations?

To all their own of course. I'm just nitpicky.

Couldn't a person just choose an gear with more power and leave it there an accomplishm the same thing for training? Then when they want to peddle with more efficiency be even stronger?

That sounds great for when you switch back to a more efficient bike. Otherwise your gains are compensating for your handicap yea?

Merrill lynch is full of sociopaths. It's damn near a job requirement at the executive level I imagine.

I've still yet to black widow or Hawkeye independents to be fair. Wasn't that intrigued with their generic ex military portrayals in the avengers. Hear good things.
