Added reply in a thread What to consider a "hard hit" (helmets) 7/11/2017 9:47 AM

I've always operated under the idea that if you take a hard shot, like hard enough to "ring your bell", it's time for a new lid. Or every 3-5 years if you haven't soil sampled. The part that does the brain-saving deceleration is the foam liner. Don't ... more »

You're not the only one noticing. The side shots drive me nuts, especially when the dude closest to the camera can't keep from picking his nose or wiping his face with his shirt. Criminy guys!

A rider's face can say a lot. Especially the mouth part of the face.

Wheels are the new pipes. Everybody has to buy the overpriced bling to feel special.

Hopefully the investigation will provide substantive info on what went wrong, but to assume the manufacturer was immediately at fault and should pay seems a bit premature. Hundreds of millions of these containers have been in the hands of trifling idiots ... more »

And an hour before and immediately after the race I drink about 1/2 cup of dill pickle juice. No kidding. Helps me with prevention/decrease of muscle cramps.

On a related note, London Mayor and Chief Screwball Sadiq Khan said tragic fires are just part and parcel of living in a big city.... Just kidding.

The black dust is likely a function of relative movement between the tire and tube- squishing and rolling and stuff but not necessarily rotation. Could be, but rotation will result in a flat pretty quick due to stem tear. Make sure your nipple tops are ... more »

I'd frankly be surprised if the building had sprinklers. European building codes are very different from NA codes, and fire protection typically depends more on non-combustible materials and compartmentalization than on active fire protection systems. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Those flaggers don't know how to flag 6/8/2017 10:37 AM

I fail to see how sliding a flagger a few bucks will improve the types of situations we had last week. The idea that paying someone to do a job automatically makes them better at it and improves decision making capacity is silly. At what point would ... more »

That's hilarious about the students being able to do advanced calculus but getting tripped up with unit conversion. It's the reason a lot of new engineering grads are hard pressed to perform well on the job. Great academic skills, weak common sense and ... more »

Funktree- It's the difference between gauge pressure and absolute pressure. Gauge pressure has the atmospheric figured in, and it's the "real-world" application as opposed to the egg-headed approach of academia. Granted, absolute pressure considerations ... more »
