When I heard how cold it was going to get, I filled the tub to have water to flush the toilet with, and filled up about 20 gallons of drinking water. We dripped faucets during the day, and at night shut off the water supply at the street and opened all ... more »

I was without power for 48 hours, and have been without running water for 24 hours. Got plenty of drinking water to last 2weeks if needed.

Texas' insistence upon "independence" and decisions made to not winterize power generation infrastructure. Nuclear plants failed, natural gas plants failed, wind farms failed, solar failed. All of these power types work in cold weather with appropriate ... more »

Has Barcia changed enough to just let it go? Or is he going to hold a grudge? I hope it's the former, but only time will tell.

Half of the posts here are straight out of Vogue. Did you see the new TLD Colourways? That new red jersey looked great on the rider. Do you think I could wear it, or would it clash with my aftermarket graphics kit. It doesn't make my hips look too wide, ... more »

The tracks are shorter and similar this year because they have to build 3 tracks in a week at the same location. So the goal is to make the tracks easier to change to the next layout. If they can reuse the se rhythm section, that is time they can spend ... more »

Yeah. They need to take some inspiration from the old Mickey Thompson Ultracross races. A bunch of boner air singles to flat. At least that's what it was back then. Who would dare to scrub a jump like that today? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ch_os7ZUzFE ... more »

I think it's fine how it is. If you are still learning, you have ample opportunity in 250E and 250W. If you're ready to win a real title, you put yourself up against the best riders in the world in the 450 class. And if you're just the type of rider ... more »

It's in his contract with NBC. If they don't call him "The GOAT" at least 5 times per broadcast, they have to pay him extra.

Looks like he may have under-jumped slightly, tapped his rear wheel on the top of the landing, which through off his balance. You can see his body get thrown forward slightly, and the rear wheel appears to be kicking out to the outside of the turn. Never ... more »

No one is "hating" Craig. We're talking about how bad he screwed something up, costing himself and another rider points. It's sad that we can't discuss when a rider obviously screws something up without some poster having a meltdown.

Added reply in a thread Christian Craig - Dohhhh! 1/31/2021 6:02 PM

No one is suggesting that. They're commenting that he completely cocked up something that a rider who turned pro 12 years ago shouldn't be cocking up.

No one is complaining that he tried to protect his position. It's that he couldn't do it without running into tuff blocks and taking himself down.

It wasn't dirty, it was just stupid, and a mistake someone with his experience shouldn't be making.

Why don't you just put what "this" is in the thread title? How much harder would it have been to put "Time for radios in our sport". It's two extra letters. I think people just like useless subjects in this place. Last thing we'd want is for the search ... more »

I think it would be amusing if someone went back and bumped every thread that was just titled "Dungey" to the top. You'd open the forum, and you'd have 200 threads with the exact same title at the top.

In 2010, the murder rate was higher than in 2020. Which suggests that it hasn't actually gotten worse, it's just that media is making it sound worse than it actually is. And Austin's per capita funding of police is $444, which is substantially higher ... more »

I don't love the homeless camps, but Austin is not "a violent shithole" as you originally characterized it. It's a city with growing pains, and still is a great place to live. And if you prefer Stanley, NM to Austin, that's fine.
