My "favorite" part of this is that apparently the only statistics that matter are bulk numbers, which, you know, aren't even really "statistics" in the math-y sense.

But we're apparently not playing that game today. This was a really a unproductive comment (from me), but, jesus.

Oh, so you just have no empathy and don't give a shit about anything that doesn't directly impact you. Okay, exiting this conversation.

    Consequentialism and deontology answer your question in opposite ways.

Hi. Person who knows very little about either of these. Where to start? Wikipedia? Not Wikipedia?

Really my issue with your analysis is looking at bulk numbers instead of proportions of the population, which end up being roughly an order of magnitude difference between the proportion of trans population murdered in 2015 (smaller) compared to the proportion of opioid users killed via overdoes in 2015 (larger). Does bridge the gap quite a bit compared to the bulk but, if you're judging your reaction based on number/proportion of people killed, opioids still "win".

I'm making a very poor decision and running the Soaring Eagle 10k in preparation for a half-marathon I am running. It will be the second trail race I've done, every Saturday I do a 5k that's half trail, half paved. A full on trail race is a bit different of a beast, especially out here where 500-600 ft of elevation gain is a "light" trail run.

Sleeping pads I like! It's good to have a firm, even base to sleep on instead of having a sleeping bag conforming to whatever kind of ground you may be on, and it also acts as insulation between your sleeping bag and the ground, as AnSionnachRua mentioned. It's good for my mental and physical health on weekend trips.

Ah, apologies, it sounded like everything had been happening concurrently.

Standing by my point of if you have this problem do something about it NOW for anyone else who might be reading.

Kevin Morby gets it. Amazing when he was in Woods, but his solo stuff is just too good. All of My Life is my jam.

Tent: Six Moon Lunar Solo. Holy shit that's a lot of tent for how light it is. Too bad I can't order it for another month.

Pack: I'm going to get fitted for one in the next couple of weeks and take it from there, but the obvious choices seem to be Osprey, Gregory, or Salomon. Somewhere on the order of 45L - 55L is what I'm looking for.

Just bought another pair of running shoes (same pair I currently have, because I love them), and need a new pair of hiking boots. Or rather, will by mid-season less I want more knee problems.

Do you have any friends/colleagues/whatever who are good runners around Seattle? They might be able to direct you to some good PT's/Chiros/etc etc. Plantar fasciitis ain't nuttin' to fuck with.

Leading by example.
