Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.

Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.

"The tragedy of that poor boy’s life is not the realization that he’s not the grand prize he’s assumed, but that he’s not even second place."

The really sad thing, is these asshats don’t wear placards letting women know they (the men who think this way) are pathetic losers.

How to defy gravity. (at least for a second)

The ollie is a skateboarding trick where the rider and board leap into the air without the use of the rider’s hands.[1] Particularly on flat ground, it is not intuitively obvious how the liftoff is achieved, making the trick visually striking.

The ollie is a fundamental trick in street skateboarding, and is used to leap onto, over, or off obstacles, or over gaps of unfriendly terrain such as grass or stairs. As so many other tricks depend on it - for example the kickflip and heelflip - the ollie is often the first trick to be learned by a new skateboarder. The ollie typically takes considerable practice to learn.

Kids are fucking stupid…

Got a serious sprained and possibly a broken bone in my wrist from a middle school kid, who thought it would be fun to jump in front of me on the Ballona Creek bike path today. Probably doing close to 20 mph on a small decline and just couldn’t get the bike to stop before I slammed into the girl. Not sure what she was thinking. 

Anyway, I went over the bars, she took the bike to the body and face. No damage to the bike, but after a couple hours my right wrist is killing me and swollen. Thankfully I didn’t just plow into her as I have aero bars and she and her friends probably wouldn’t have been laughing if she had taken them to the chest. 

Apparently, this is a thing with the Culver City Middle School kids. I rode up to the Culver City PD and let them know kids are blocking the bike path and literally jumping in front of cyclists. Before I even finished telling the guy behind the counter what happened, he was on the phone sending officers out there. 

So I guess the lesson for me is, slow my shit down around that fucking school between 2 and 3 pm…and next time, unclip, and just kick the shit out of whoever decides it might be fun to jump in front of a cyclist. Or, just don’t ride when school is letting out.

Return of the King

I only recently watched The Lord of the Ring: Return of the King, and was more than a little suprised by how much the Lich King in the film matched the Lich Kind in WoW…and how much the fortress resembled the Ice Crown structures. Was it an homage from WoW to the book, or from the film to WoW?

Is Colombian men's cycling team kit as bad as women's?

I started cycling recently, and in the process bought bibs and jerseys, shoes…basically the whole kit. And with the recent uproar of the Colombian Teams, both mens and womens, kits its makes me a bit nervous. 

Firstly, cycling kits are made for comfort and to enhance speed and cooling. At the same time, this makes them pretty much skin tight. So, every little bulge or whatever (backfat, belly, saggy butts, etc.) is on display. Now there are colors you can wear that tend to hide those things a bit better than others, black, red, bright colors in with crazy stripy or dots, to hide those things you don’t want peeps to be checking out…but holy cats. 

That being said, these are athletes who are at their prime as far as fitness. They work like crazy to get to the level they are racing. Just do a quick google search to see what kind of training and diet is needed to do a Gran Fondo (100 ish miles). These athletes are doing thousands. So maybe it’s okay to show off a little…

But I have to say, as a man who appreciates a fit woman’s body, this kit might have gone too far, or just been a huge mistake on the designer’s part. Or both. I am excited for these women to be competing and want them to win races, but that kit is not going to enhance a win. If one of those women wins a stage, standing on the podium will not be about her ability to be the best, it will be about her kit. And for me that isn’t what sport is about. 

Just my two cents. I hope the Colombian teams can do well in the race, but I’m afraid any victory will be overshadowed, or under exposed as the case may be, by the ill conveived uniform choice.
