Really stupid...

If an idea is good, it's on the verge of being stupid. ~ Michel Gondry

I have always had this theory… get a group of people in a room, throw out a bunch of ideas and at the end of the night, look at your list to find the most idiotic and that's the one you should do.

This blog was spawned from one very stupid idea - run the Leadville 100. I gave that a shot in the summer of '07 - completed 73 miles - and survived. The blog lives on...

Chalk this up in the "not good" column...

It's Al Gore's fault. ~ Plethora of Global warming deniers

Ladies and gentlemen, this Fall we could witness an event never before seen by human eyes. The polar ice cap may completely melt away. This, my friends, is not good (in case you haven't been paying attention).

It seems unthinkable, but for the first time in human history, ice is on course to disappear entirely from the North Pole this year.


Seasoned polar scientists believe the chances of a totally ice-free North Pole this summer are greater than 50:50 because the normally thick ice formed over many years at the Pole has been blown away and replaced by huge swathes of thinner ice formed over a single year.

Yikes. Read a synopsis here.

On a lighter note, Luke and I went for a singlespeed ride yesterday on the Sourdough Trail north of Nederland. Though I thought I would be able to hang, Luke pretty much kicked my ass as usual. I am going to fit the Humuhumnukunukuapua'a with a shock ASAP. Maybe that will help me keep up.

Hanging with Rach today and working on the deck. Hope to have that completed before we run up to the Melamed's for dinner.
