I like it! Saturday is one of the most interesting songs they've written (as far as going outside their comfort zone a bit). It's no Days, but still good. I'm excited to see them for the second time in August. How about you?

Hah, what? ...did you go to Purchase?

Any band with Liv in it is amazing.

Dividend season, yo.

Plus, the staff is super friendly, treated and trained well, and as a company REI really supports their customer base through events and classes. Never had a problem there.

New Real Estate.

Adult Mom.

Eux Autres.

Fucking Wall Drug and it's hundreds of miles of billboard advertising. It's kind of amazing, but at the same time, fuck that place. The Badlands and a ton of other places around there are amazing and I was pretty entranced by Crazy Horse and the entire story behind that, maybe moreso than Mount Rushmore.

What I will say about Mount Rushmore, which I believe to be much more of a compliment than the author was able to give, is that it is a place that brings people together from all walks of life.

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.
