    Good luck, that's brutal.

    My fiancee's apartment building in New Haven was broken into twice this month, so her neighbors put up a "Beware of Dogs" sign on their door. I made her a "Beware of Even Larger Dogs" sign.

    Just made a huge step towards finding who it is. Thankfully the guy who lives behind me has security cams that caught him going in and out.
    Bastard waited until I pulled out and he came in.

    He was on a bike, so once I identify the model/color, I'll put a bounty out.

    Less pressing announcement: drink a lot of water, people!

    Kidney stones are no fun. And hey, they can also make you puke!

    A lot.

    And apparently dehydration can be a factor.

    My dad has had them real bad THIS WEEK. I had one once. It hit at 2am, while I was camping in the middle of the woods in PA. Was 5 hours before I got to the ER. In 2005 I had a compound fracture in my arm from a motorcycle wreck. I would take the pain of that any day, without question, over a kidney stone.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    My Dad sells ice cream on the beach in the summer and doesn't drink water. It's ridiculous, I don't know how he can function all day so dehydrated.

    surprisefries:Because I'm not allowed to have water at my desk :/


    Before i had an office outside of the lab i would hide water/snacks at my lab bench. fuck your rules!

    When i was at mount sinai in nyc i worked across from this 80 yr old woman would make her tea in the lab using an erlenmeyer flask & hot plate/stir plate.
  15.  
    Oh I totally hide snacks, and sometimes water. But refilling is trickier 'cause I have to smuggle it in and out of the lab, hoping not to get seen by the lab manager. Fuck the police!

    I guess if you make it to 80 though, like, do whatever you want.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Dick Sachs is changing his color scheme
    My New House

    I’m closing a file that’s been open for more than three decades. The red and white thing, a paint scheme arrived at almost by accident when I had to match bicycles I was making for my racing team – match them to clothing supplied to us by Le Coq Sportif – a pattern that has had more tonal variations, ink color revisions, decal size and placement combinations, but has remained essentially red and white since 1982, is now part of my past.

    I looked at what I had and considered the project done. It was perfect and mature. Mature in the sense that I could not imagining changing another detail and still feel content, or that I could go forward with a finer design. The current version has remained unchanged since 2009 and I had nothing left I wanted to give to it.

    So what could be next? In the time it takes to hit ctrl alt del, my intention became clear. I wanted a wholesale departure from my past so that I could cross a line on one day and step into my future on the next. There was only one place I would trust for such a leap: House Industries.

    I contacted Rich Roat, expressed a desire for a complete makeover of my identity program, and asked if he and his staff would guide me. The hash marks were simple: bury the red and white thing, lose as many connections to the “look” that I had worked with and around all these years, and emerge with something uniquely House Industries For Richard Sachs.

    After some twenty months, House and I are walking up to that line and getting ready to cross it together. Rich, Bondé, Andy, and Ken have completed the re-skin. The Richard Sachs Cyclocross Team will start the season this week and debut the creations that House Industries has designed. Graphics. Fonts. Colors. Racing kits. Accessories. Maybe even stickers. Well, maybe not stickers.

    It was 1982 when I began my racing sponsorship program, and the red and white thing came from that. I’ve managed teams every season since. That won’t change, but everything else you see will.
