When I lived in San Francisco I had a daily bicycle commute to college to work to back home. The steep hills really help build the leg muscles. The total ride time was about 2 to 3 hours round trip. It's a great work-out. On the weekends, I would often ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to the Marin Headlands. I miss The City. Considering moving back.

That's good, because there have been so many national sports teams mocking your various white sides owned by non-white people.

How does that even compare?

Based on your stance, I should walk around in a state of self-hatred for one part of myself mocks the other part. Take a deep look at European history, you'll see that often different nationalities hated and enslaved each other. For example, based on my own heritage, German vs. Polish vs. Russian or English vs. Irish or all of the above warring or making love with (in my case) Native Americans. The distinct advantage in my situation is that I can role-play WW2 or Cowboys and Indians all on my own.

There's quite a difference between being based on ethnicity and being based on a slur.

I really fail to see why so many people struggle with this.

When I think of my Polish side, all I can come up with are jokes about myself and it makes me laugh -- it also contributes to my hard work ethic. When I think about my English side, I wonder how bad my teeth are, how I can't cook and ill mannered others seem to be. When I contemplate my Irish side, I feel my inner anger and a bit of James Joyce. The German side makes me think of my arrogance and desire for order. My Russian side makes me think of my desires for social justice and philosophical contemplation. My Native American side makes me want to go camping and run through the wilderness.

Do I really think all this? No. It's just a bunch of BS stereotypes and fantasy thinking. I'm just an average person. Heritage means nothing to me in the grand scheme of things. One's true heritage come from childhood and every imaginary and creative step taken up till now. I believe, and hope, future generations will come to the same realization.

Another wave of political correctness destroying our minds and culture. Plenty of High School sports teams have names that are based on ethnicity, typically in battle name fashion, especially American Indians -- or is it Native Americans, or is it Indians?

I have American Indian (Native American) DNA floating in my biology. Of course, who doesn't these days?. I also have European DNA. Or should I say I'm Irish, English, Polish, German, Russian, Native American? Or should I spell out each ethnicity clearly and separately?

I am:

Irish American
English American
Polish American
Russian American
German American
Native American

Oh heck with it, I'll keep it simple. I'm American!

Am I proud of my heritage? Not really. I don't care. I consider myself your typical native California beach boy. Race, religion or politics matter not. Surf's up!

I enjoyed Freelancer because it played nothing like your typical boring space combat flight simulator. If I want reality, I go outside.

Rain? What is rain? Google searching. Water from the sky. Understood. It's an endangered species here. We need rain. We really need rain. I mean, we really need it.

Only around $500? I would have attempted 50 to 100 K at least. It's a short domain name. It's a .com. It's most likely a potential movie title, quote, or book. It's culturally significant. Watch the winner resell it for a big profit.

I use a social GPS daily but I never understood the police warning. Why do I care if there are police? I'm a very grandma driver -- not much choice, going over 30 MPH + in LA for any extended period of time is unlikely.

If you go through Cutters history you'll find they're all well thought out...he's highly intellectual and has a great sense of humor.

Fixed.

The best part of having seen so many Star Trek episodes is that I get every joke on the The Big Bang Theory.

Someone will come up with a tech to beam advertising straight into our minds. At that point the Internet will start to become some weird retro old school way of information gathering; eventually, a tiny scribble in the history books.

Met Mr. Burton at a local radio show. He demonstrated the visor. Nice guy.

The Code Conference was taking place very close to home!

Very upsetting. It's my home town. I didn't know the victims, yet it feels like someme killed members of my family. It's hard to watch the news with dry eyes. Heavy heart.

Devastated by what has happened in my home town Santa Barbara. Considering returning to Europe. Too many crazies with guns in the USA.

I declare this entire discussion void. We all love Carmack and owe to him our nerdistic FPS gaming allegiance. It's impossible to be unbiased.
