Here’s a mashup idea: give the Blue Man Group some bikes.
So I’m at Mix 08, went out for a quick ride, and found the Hottest Coffee in Vegas
A couple notes:
- I forgot my helmet, back at home
- Sexxpresso is an “only in Vegas” and probably better that it Stay in Vegas
- Only a coinkadink that we’ve had back-to-back PG-13 posts
Skins is a new product on the market that’s quietly making a name for itself. You don’t hear much about them in the press - but if you look close at a big race it’s uncanny to see how many top pros are putting them on right after the race. I just got my pair today and the 1 hour result?: Who knows if they increase my recovery, but they feel GREAT! Holy cow - I’d walk around wearing these compression tights 24/7 if it was socially acceptable.
Full review to follow.
Cool video and explanation of why traffic jams occur on otherwise un-obstructed roads, courtesy of New Journal of Physics and the The Lede blog at the New York Times. Apparently the key factor is traffic density. As a multi-modal commuter I see (and participate) in these all the time. The funny thing is that this justifies the smug feeling you’re getting as you blow by the car-muters stuck in traffic – you’re not just going faster, you’re doing your part to reduce vehicle density and pointless traffic jams. Try not to lord it over the trapped-in-traffic though, they’re already frustrated enough.
