    So, the equivalent of the Seatpost Girl thread just happened on the classical singers' forum that I'm also a member of.

    It is fairly epic. 382 posts in the space of 3 days.

    Thing is, this kind of thing happens on that forum every few weeks. Classical singers are all fucked in the head.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    EPIC! Stratton:

    tinyhonkshus:It's about time they made it so you could bike outside

    OOOOOHHHHHMMMMMYYYYGGGGGOOOOODDDDD the hatred flows with the power of a thousand suns


    or rather, the power of one kilosol


    this is correct if Obo was using "sun" meaning the power of solar irradiation on the earth's surface at 90deg in which case "Sun" and "sol" can be used interchangeably. Though "sol" is rarer. Thus: 1 kSun = 1ksol = 1 000 000 W/m^2 since part of copley square they're spinning in is about 50 m^2, the power associated would be 5.0 x 10^7 W.

    If we're talking a thousand times the total energy of the sun, that's more like 1.5 x 10^25 J. But since this is just an energy, we can multiply it by the time they were spinning, let's call it 90 minutes (since the orders of magnitude make the time almost irrelevant when comparing the two numbers) and arrive at a power: 8.1 x 10^28 W

    which of these numbers accurately describes the power associated with hatred flux?You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev gets death penalty for placing Marathon bomb

    I mean, yeah, nobody contested that of course he's guilty, but in Massachusetts, we haven't used the death penalty since 1947. I thought we were better than that.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    From a lawyer friend, "Of course a death-qualified jury reached a result completely at odds with prevailing sentiment in Massachusetts and the wishes of some victims' families--because death-qualified juries are, by design, not representative of the community from which they're drawn."

    There are a handful of USAC races in Buffalo, one happening this weekend in an omnium style (3 short crit/TT races with a point system). Seems cool, right?

    Men's 1/2/3 prize pool: $750
    Men's 4 : $400

    Women's 1/2/3: $100
    Women's 4: medals

    Reg fee for all 3 races: $80

    I asked their fb event why that's so drastically unequal, and the post got deleted.

    i would change the mens award to: "a nice pat on the back, and asked to get off the podium." then again, i'm an ass. and the first idea was that the first man gets a burrito. which is worth waaaaay more than 12 dollars, imho.

    I would work on a better name - it's not stinging enough, and it's sort of confusing. Obviously you mean it's fair in that it evens things out, but it's not really "fair" on its own.

    Also don't forget to complain about how few men come to it!

    Also also you should probably have scantily clad podium boys.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    TINSHIFA: Park & Pedal

    Obviously I'm all about suburban park and ride options (like the 128 CR lot, etc) and it's good that this might divert drivers from taking their cars into Harvard Square and maybe Arsenal St (not a lot of benefit gained, IMHO, since Arsenal can handle it and Harvard already gets the siphoning from Alewife), but it seems like encouraging people to drive into the city proper to park in a big parking lot that just happens to be a leeeeeeeettle bit further out than HSq is sorta dumb and has little point. Not to mention the potential for increasing congestion in Lower Allston. Whatever, I am a hater.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    I, for one, am a big fan of "the historic launch of America’s first official Park&Pedal program". I assume that means they're going to set up checkpoints at all entrances to the city and if you don't have a real good fucking reason to bring your own SUV, you have to park that shit and catch a ride or get a hubway.

    I'm moderately involved in this and I think it will be pretty good. Montague is the primary sponsor. We're piloting a guided commute service to people who are uneasy with how to get into the city - which I hope will be a huge hit because it's something that I have wanted to offer for a while but has exactly a zero dollar ROI.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe.

    Those front freewheel things are awesomely weird. I knew someone who had one, but they stopped riding it pretty fast because it was a shitty old bike.

    I just rescued a Terry from one of those "oh it's just a hobby, I fix them up and over-price them for dumb students, I'll deliver it anywhere". One of the quick releases was open, the brake levers were way out of place, and they fucked up the paint clamping on a kickstand."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries
