    I emailed somebody this morning about an old, steel Mongoose Sycamore and asked how firm they were on the price. Instead of replying, "I'm firm", he e-mailed me back asking to call him. Played phone tag for 30 min. until finally he answered and said, "I'm firm on the price".

    It saddens my heart knowing that people don't know how to reply via e-mail instead of playing on the phone, wasting my, and their, time.

    The nearest Dirt jumps are an hour away and gas prices are soaring.

    Oh, and it saddens me when i have an itch on my back, and my jacket is to thick and I cant scratch through my jacket and can't satisfy my itch.

    Must... resist... repping... so... deserving...


    --holding off on repping until the glitch gets cleared

    -not being able to ride until the screws are removed from the ankle

    -Newt's $500 check bounced
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Even funnier that you took personal offense. I didn't even read your post before making my comment. Your so full of spite and venom I'm not sure how you function in the real world.

    Bah, take the rep system away. Matters not to me. I can show you threads I've started on here that have garnered compliments and helped others. Can you do the same?

    Tell me Floyd, what validates your pathetic little life?

    1.- Looking for a job and not getting one. Needing money for stuff and not having any.
    2.- Spending more time on mtb forums instead of actually riding... (i live at least 1hr away from really good trails)
    3.- Having a hard time keping my weight on the line. Im not fat, but im not exactly where i want to be. Yes, i know im a whiney b!tch... but im a perfectionist.

    N 1 is the worst one tho..

    Marley and Me... hot damn that was horrible.

    Watching 7 Pounds. Will Smith kills people, then kills himself to save more, my reaction "Thats sad."

    Marley and Me at the end, my reaction: "NOOOO nOOOt Marley! "

    My whole family cried a little.

    Moosey, I didn't cry a little, I cried a lot! Saddest movie I've seen in a long time. Right up there with 'Where the Red Fern Grows' in my book.

    Losing my cat to the neighbors dog next door. 5 months now, still miss him, every single day, he was one cool cat. God Bless you Willy. The other side of that block wall he was on was a Death Trap of a dog with jaws of death. Daily, he tempted fate, unknowingly to us.

    Yeah, pets that have passed away leave a hole in your life. My in-laws have a sweet dobie who's over 10 years old and riddled with medical problems due to his age. They've put a lot of money, time, and effort into making him comfortable over the last 12-24 month but his health contInues to decline and he's just not able to function much anymore.

    His "last" vet appointment is scheduled for this Thursday. They're gonna be a mess afterwards.

    The fact that I am a work-aholic. I work so much that when I finally get a few days off if I don't leave town and "mentally escape" from reality, I actually feel like I'm doing something wrong by not working and I can't relax. It sucks being an addict...

    - the blase, mind numbing uniformity of southern-californian, home depot landscaping. grass, lantana, and palm trees. cool. there's so many beautiful, easy native plants that help out all the local wildlife. bonus - they make it feel like you're at your favorite trail.

    - plus a gajillion on the animal cruelty, or losing a pet. Updike sums it up pretty nicely:

    Dog's Death

    She must have been kicked unseen or brushed by a car.
    Too young to know much, she was beginning to learn
    To use the newspapers spread on the kitchen floor
    And to win, wetting there, the words, "Good dog!
    Good dog!"

    We thought her shy malaise was a shot reaction.
    The autopsy disclosed a rupture in her liver.
    As we teased her with play, blood was filling her skin
    And her heart was learning to lie down forever.

    Monday morning, as the children were noisily fed
    And sent to school, she crawled beneath the youngest's bed.
    We found her twisted and limp but still alive.
    In the car to the vet's, on my lap, she tried

    To bite my hand and died. I stroked her warm fur
    And my wife called in a voice imperious with tears.
    Though surrounded by love that would have upheld her,
    Nevertheless she sank and, stiffening, disappeared.

    Back home, we found that in the night her frame,
    Drawing near to dissolution, had endured the shame
    Of diarrhoea and had dragged across the floor
    To a newspaper carelessly left there. Good dog.

    John Updike, POETSPEAK In Their Work, About Their Work (A Selection by Paul B. Janeczko)

    - road kill makes me a bit sad, too. poor little guy just trying to find some grub or a quiet place to sleep.

    Thanks man! Women tend to have dreams of having a baby, dressing them, taking pictures, decorating the room...

    I'm thinking how I'm going to raise the future UFC light heavy weight champion of the world.

    I hope it happens. I really want to be a Dad (even if he doesn't become the UFC champ). I say "he" because I refuse to produce girls.

    i agree on the animal cruelty thing, thats a big one. its like abusing a toddler.

    trying to maintain my huge weightloss when food is just too damn good. Man, i'm slipping!

    having chronic anxiety and knowing that it butts its way into every aspect of my life (including biking sadly) and i have to modify my life because of it.

    knowing that kids these days are growing up obsessed with their phone, and listening to horrible music, and "learning" on unrealistic bad porn.

    knowing that the times are gone when you can just kick your kid out for the day, let them ride their bikes god knows where, and not expect them back until its dark, and not be worried about it. I dont know that i could let my own kids run off and be little sh|ts the way that i did when i was young. the world just seems worse.

    I still eat eggs - bought from a local farm and I can meet the chickens who produce them. When my wife and I obtain the "dream" - we will definitely own chickens.

    meat eating will never go away, i just wish the big companies like Tyson and whoever, will just change their practices. It means they would have to take a pay cut...which most companies are not willing to do.

    That ASPCA thing just kills me. Definitely have to change the channel on that one.

    Looking at my 2 yr. old with down syndrome knowing the hardships he will face with bullying and being made fun of. God help me if this ever happens in front of me....

    Of course he has a chance, everyone has a chance in MMA unless it's Andy Wang we're talking about.
    But let's face it, it's about as good of a chance as Forrest Griffin had against Anderson Silva.

    That's one of the few good things about living in WI. It's possible to get meat products easily (and reasonably affordably) that are raised in local farms.

    I totally support local farmers and hunters that eat their kill. I'm a firm supporter of hunting.

    Kinda have a problem with sport hunting, but I can see the varmint population control issues. Just not hunting elephants for ivory, or bears for rugs.

    Fcuking Californians are, like, "Animals are our friiiieeeeeeennnnddsssss..."

    All while clutching their $5000 leather handbags and eating dead pig.

    Biggest problem with the meat consumption is what people eat are pink slabs in styrofoam packing - there's no connection with the animal, no sense of sacrifice that provided you that food. You don't see a screaming cow with it's eyes bulging, shrieking pig with it's throat cut or a chicken standing in feces with it's beak cut off with cable cutters - you see a steak, ham or chicken tenders. Very easy to disconnect from the truth.

    If those hoity toity a-hole "animal lovers" (and I use quotes for a reason) were to actually kill their own animals for food, they'd change their perception on what really goes down so they can eat flesh. This is why I like hunters and local formers - they understand that. Hunters don't want the animal to suffer, nor do small farmers - they do it right and ethically.

    I'd still eat meat if we had such an opportunity to get it like you do. I'd love to hunt my own food, too. I don't have hunter friends, but when I did, they'd freeze deer meat and it kept very well for a good while.

    Hey now, what all the talk about the meat.

    Dion, have you considered artificial insemination? Obviously you don't have to anwer me on a public forum, but I have a friend who now has 2 happy and healthy sons that way. It didn't stop her from practicing the old fashion way either. LOL

    NicoleB, think that's a combo of being older and realizing/seeing more of the dangers around us, and a constant bombardment of fear and drama from all types of ever growing media. IMO people are no worse or different from when I was a little rascal but sadly cable tv has changed the social dynamic and most people's perception of it. My young one is exposed to very little media, and not because we don't allow it, but because we've made other things more fun and that decision is hers. Think that makes for a cooler person/kid, one that can think more clearly about real things, and that makes it MUCH easier to trust her ability to think for herself when I'm not around.

    So what makes me sad is all helpless living things, anything with feelings, that're just trying to survive by whatever means they have available, yet fall short because of an unfortunate accident, genetic traits, just plain bad choices, or circumstances. Ignorance and stupidity can really make for some sadness when you can see other choices for them to make, that they can not or refuse to make for themselves. Not to be confused with animals or people with malice intent. If it's for their own survival it's more forgivable, but either way I'd be happy to protect myself or teach them a lesson.
    Man's greed also makes me sad. Whether it be the richer or smarter taking from the less fortunate, or like last week when I went to Niagara Falls for the first time. It saddened me to see such a beautiful spot in the world, that man turned into hotels, casinos, restaurants, and any other kind of money making locals to profit from. It must have been a truly special spot on this planet before man's money ran it over.

    I have to say I watch the ASPCA commercials because i need to know. I need to know that there are people out there that breed dogs and cats and birds indiscriminately, that discard them as easily as an old VCR and harm and damage them like they were nothing. I need to know this because what they do to dogs and cats and birds they can easily do to humans and it is a reminder that there are sick people out there.

    That said Dion get some kids going, do what you need to do or adopt if you can't. It is a life enriching experience that if you even have the faintest sense that it is something you might be interested in you need to achieve it. Non-breeders will tell you otherwise and your inner child will tell you it is expensive and you will have to stop doing so many things but the pay off is that it is rewarding like nothing you can buy and you will do other things instead with a small human that worships the everything you do and say and that is something amazing.

    I have been waiting until our finances are enough that I can buy a share in a grass fed cow that is free to roam the Arizona ranches that it lives on and can be slaughtered in a humane way. I can't kill an animal myself but I can have someone else do it. Hypocritical I know but if it is humane in its approach and the animal has a good life at least I can feel better about eating it. I won't eat eggs that are not from cage free animals that eat good food. I pay probably 4-500% more for eggs than most people only because I have seen those undercover vids about how chickens are done. It is much more shocking and saddening than the ASPCA commercials.

    Wait, if I say yes does that make me touron? Thought it was beautiful, spent about 3 weeks all around the state with about 1/2 week in Sedona, Spent all my time mtbing, horseback riding, and off roading. Also think the people were great all around the state. That was 15 years ago and what do i know, I grew up in Brooklyn, and have no idea what it was like before or after my visit.
    Also don't have a problem with dinks, as long as they keep their business to themselves and are cool people. 150k is ok with me to, as long as it's earned honestly and without selfishness.
    Round and round we go

    some shart jokes came up today on my group ride. i had just done a ton of climbing, got to the top, tried to burp, and ended up throwing up instead and spewing it down my leg. People were like, "hey, at least it wasnt a shart!"

    i had just met these people.....
