There's a woman Tour? I'd be interested in the stats.

I used to follow biking because it's so inhuman. I'd wonder how they compare.

People don't understand what a feat this is. It's grueling. They do something like a century (100 miles) a day. They climb mountains and descend them at 70 MPH. Its insane. Anybody that has biked sort of seriously realizes how insane the battle is. They average, AVERAGE over 23 miles an hour through the entire course, and the course is insane.

I know women cannot compete against men in this crazy sport, but the top ones would have kicked my ass at any age.

I've done centuries before, the last 20 miles is thinking of something I can eat, and the end of it was me on the floor exhausted as salt crystals formed on my skin. A hundred miles is a lot, and it's scenic and enjoyable at first, but when you're 30 miles out it's more of a question of if you can make it back. 50 miles out you know you have to return, and you're already exhausted, and you're 1/2 way there. They aren't human. They do this every day for a month. It's insane. People who don't bike don't comprehend how inhuman the race is.

I've done 60 MPH down a hill at 20, it's terrifying. Your center of gravity is way up, you have to really hug the road and trust your tires won't slip. It was stupid for me to do that at 18, if I went down, I would have been seriously injured if not dead. I've gone down mountains that if I slipped, I was fucking dead. It was a lot of fun in youth, but so fucking stupid. Any mistake or fuckup, I was dead.

That's just a typical race for them. Many people have been killed in it. Hit a patch of sand or dirt and you're dead.

Lemme guess - one lady was putting on lipstick and not watching the road.

On the other hand, the male to female tranny Tour De France had no problems.

While jogging near Huddart Park a few years ago, I saw a guy hit a pine cone while zipping down the hill on his bike. He skittered on the road like a skipping stone on water.

He got up and said he was OK, but he was definitely not OK, with small patches scraped off so you could see the layer of fat below, and even muscle. He didn't seem quite aware of his situation, so I asked him for his wife's phone number after seeing his wedding ring, and started to explain to her that she should come and get him, and she hung up on me.

A crowd gathered and someone else called an ambulance, so I left.

I hope that guy divorced his wife. Shit if a workplace acquaintance got injured that I slightly hated, I would have intervened.

I've been in a serious accident before, a concussion. What I learned from that is if you have a concussion, you won't realize it, even if you are thinking "do I have a concussion?" I could name the president, and other similar things, but I wasn't certain where I lived exactly. I found my place and went to sleep, the stupidest possible thing I could have done. When I woke up, I discovered what broken ribs feel like, it's the worst pain I've ever felt, I didn't lie down again for a month. I literally slept in a chair with a bunch of towels and blankets on my lap laying on top of them. Sneezing, coughing, laughing - was excruciating pain.

You can't feel pain when you're in shock. Interesting experience. Funny, we all stop acting stupid once we get really hurt.

It's also interesting in that I didn't want help either. I think this is natural in men, not to show weakness, no matter how fucked up we are. I imagine if I got shot in the chest, I would blow it off as I bled to death and drowned in my own blood. We're stoopid..

I'm going to watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail now.

American math team beats China in world finals.



I'm proud of Americans no matter where they or their ancestors came from!
