Yah, they felt like they made a difference in the past but I'm reading articles that says it's really a myth. Some agree with you - it's more about the sole vs the pulling up. Some say pulling up is counter productive to pushing down, so actually your legs are fighting each other.. Seems to be a debated topic. I think the major drawback is simply walking around when the bike is parked, crunch, crunch. Tough decisions.

Hmm, can I get stiff sole shoes for platforms? Or would that not work?

I wore them a lot in San Francisco. I ride road and on the beach paths. I converted a mountain bike with city slicks and a trekking bar. I like the disc brakes and front shocks, hence the conversion.

I am wondering if the clipless will help with the hills:

Any fellow cyclists here? Clipless vs platform pedals. Opinion?

What's amazing is you've lasted this long essentially doing nothing more than linking to the work performed by others. Not trying to knock you because you seem like a nice guy, but simply copying and pasting/linking to other's work leading in with "Here's word:" -something to be that proud of?

If there were a thumbs down or dislike button here...

Logical Response:

Do you realize there is another site that does something similar (and interestingly enough, started around the same time period) and is considered one of the most popular go-to-places for news on the Internet? The conglomeration of news links is extremely useful. In addition to being an extremely useful resource, Blue's News allows for comments and discussion, and has basically built an entire gaming community.

Emotional Reponse:

What do you expect gamers to do -- go to every single possible gaming / company / forum / industry website to find new information?!? That'd be time consuming as hell!

Anyhow ...

So assuming most people were 20+ while reading Blue's News when it first came out. That means we're all a bunch of old guys/gals here...

Perhaps they need to broaden what means mental illness; or include mental disturbance; for example, a person has a psychotic episode due to drugs, injury, or shock.

Sure, a lot of shootings happen when people are temporarily emotionally or mentally distressed. But that happens to a lot of people, and better mental health care isn't going to help Johnny when he walks in on his wife Mary banging his best friend Sam.

I thought this article was interesting: Combat veterans shoot down NRA ‘fantasy world’ of ‘good guys with guns’

Some people probably have a disposition or tendency toward psychosis - as well as it being induced by drugs or environmental factors. My 'hunch' is that if we had a better mental health system, it would expand into counseling and therapy for people when they become distraught, depressed, stressed, etc. Just like how medical institutions try to influence a healthy lifestyle of 'diet and exercise', the same should be considered for psychological health. If there is an emotional trauma, there should be something well established - like an urgent care for medical issues, yet psychological - particularly offered at schools and public facilities.

I realize I live in a fantasy world ...

Not only have scientists developed a powder to stop bleeding, but another group of researchers have also come up with a sprayable foam that can heal wounds quickly. In that study, researchers sprayed the foam over wounds in pigs, and watched it double in size before it turned into a solid that prevented more blood from coming out.

Yeah, Mr. White! Yeah science!

And those paintings from 1900 were amazing!

Light therapy isn't hooey. I mean we need light in order to produce vitamin D. This is why so many people from sunnier climes closer to the equator are lactose intolerant while those of us who evolved in northern climes need dairy.

Usually once a week - when winter starts - I go to my community center to use the whirlpool and sauna to relax. They also use some kind of UV lighting - not tan lights - that's good for you. It's really relaxing and I always feel so much better after an hour or two of that.

Winter ...

With the El Niño here, it will be an especially warm winter. And hopefully lots of rain!

But won't the rain ruin your beachside rides?

Yes, it will be very difficult.

Hey all. Just checking in to let everyone know I'm still breathing.
Was wondering where you had been. Also, where the HELL is Batman?

He's undercover.

Retired?

I just installed a 7 day programmable Honeywell themostat for $45. It's plenty fine. Don't waste time and money on gimmicky thermostats. Do you really need to adjust the temp from the couch on your cell? God help you if you're that lazy you can't get up and manually adjust it.
