    Shoes for crossfit

    It's all about specificity. If you are training for IM (is there any other reason to train) then NO. If you're training to be able to drag tyres around a gym, or jump up & down looking like a goose, then yes, crossfit is good.

    You ought to come back to Aus! Only just made legal in Qld last month, and still illegal in NSW unless averting serious danger to the mother.

    You're lucky. I saw him years ago at Boondall and all 3 support acts outplayed him. I love Dylan, but that show was pathetic.

    Next you'll be supporting some halfwit who thinks she can do an IM a day for 50 days.

    Wanda to be listed on US Exchange

    So if Lance can get enough of his mates together to take a big enough stake, he can do what he wants with IM.

    But shouldn't the message have come from someone other than a company that charges more for women's razors than men's, simply because they can?

    Are you tall More? Studies have shown being taller gives significant advantages in life too. Hard work means nothing if you're a tall, white, male, with blonde hair & blue eyes.

    Gillette

    I whole-heartedly agree that growing up hearing sexist language & attitudes could lead to someone having similar attitudes as they grow older (although one would hope the rest of societies influence would dampen that attitude, and over a couple generations do away with it), but raping and murdering a women is beyond what any family would teach as acceptable. It would have to have been one hell of a family upbringing to make him think this sort of behaviour is acceptable.

    Because I was the one who started the conversation about sponges, and I don't get chicked!

    Yet Gillete charge more for their pink razors than their blue ones, which are essentially identical apart from colour and slight moulding differences, but would cost the same to manufacture. Aren't they great for standing up for women.

    I've got some Simon & Garfunkel on in the background at the moment. Sounds good to me.

    Peter went pretty close though. And that was in the first 3 hours.

    There's the Tigers and other animals, and a whole section for the little folk. I think it's ABC World or something like that.

    The Politics Thread

    My council has just amended their rules for political advertising (council/State & Federal), drastically reducing the number of signs a candidate is allowed, and where they can put them. I wonder which of the political parties will challenge it in court. (It was the Lib's last time)

    I agree with Goughy. Dreamworld is better than Movieworld. We haven't been for a couple years now, but used to alternate 12 months passes between the 2.

    How many of you oldies sucked on a sponge in a race (and then threw it on the ground, only to be re-used and sucked on by the next guy)? And we won't even mention the guy who wiped down his nether parts with that sponge about 10 minutes before you sucked on it.

    Calf Strain

    They're available all over the ground at most IM races.

    And then keep landing on your hands until you leave the toilet. To really be effective, the basins should be in the next room, and the door should be operated with a foot button, not by using your freshly washed hands to grab the handle that has been sitting there picking up those molecules all day.

    Only 25 minutes at the gym this morning, but at least it was something. #feelingbetter

    Maybe this will help them remember what was in the jiffy bag sent at about the same time?

    Nothing, again today. I probably should be visiting the MH thread, but I've just had nothing in me to make me want to go out & do anything at the moment. I've been spending every minute not working (or playing on Trannies) trying to sort out my In-Laws finances to get my MiL into a nursing home. They've always had the capital needed (just) in shares, but they've never actually prepared anything to sell them, so now that it needs to be done in a real hurry, it's an absolute fustercluck, what with POAs & joint holdings, never having used a broker for anything, having minimal records of what some were bought for etc etc etc. I'm absolutely stuffed just doing this, and have been sleeping in each morning, and at the end of each day all I want to do is sit down with a few scotches. Hopefully I'm coming to the end of this, and things might get back to a semblance of normal.
