    I think you were somewhere else -- this is nothing like Head-Fi, with or without anal dildo buttplug. Don't they talk about headphones over there or sumpin'? We're chessplayers. Also, Killing Floor. But mostly chess.

    On Saturday I Rode in the NYC Cranksgiving race. http://www.cranksgiving.org/ride.html Which is a bike messenger style race. Instead of traditional checkpoints with race staff you go to a bunch of grocery stores, buy food, and bring it to the end to donate. I had a great time, and gathered a bunch of food to give to the food bank. Although its a bit late for this year, I would highly recommend it to anyone near enough to participate next year. *STRONG* Knowledge of the area is kind of mandatory, as with any messenger race. Owning a smart-phone (I don't) also helps a LOT. Strava outcome of the route I took: http://www.strava.com/activities/96942051 NOTE! This was the "long route." There was a shorter route, but I'm pretty sure that required going through the east village & further south in Manhattan, and fuck that. I don't need to get lost where the streets go at funny angles and don't have numbers. As you can see where I went way east towards the williamsburg bridge (no reason for that) when I should have gone west near the end, I am totally hopeless once I get out of the numbered streets. In lesser news, I am pretty sure I broke the rear hub on my Brompton as I was zipping through central park at 96th street. It wont shift into lowest gear *in* the hub which means something broke, according to everything I have read on the web. This was OK for the rest of the race, as its mostly downhill from there, but could suck in the near future if I want to ride up any hills... Since I think its kind of played out on FB, and have not been updating, I have put about 1850miles on the bike since I got it in early August.

    Thanks everyone. I really don't want to make too much of this, but probably more playing and laughter today than normal. Lots to think about including that we followed the bike into the intersection. What would have happened if positions were reversed? He obviously didn't see the bike, so would he have seen a car and stopped? Would he have hit the bike instead? Overall, everyone lucky. And I'd like to officially thank Hyundai and Britax for the protection.
