Today, two weeks before my 56th birthday, I decided to ride >56 miles. Today’s ride: 58.8 miles in 3:47. A long ride, but you can tell you haven’t gone too far if you can swing your leg back over the saddle, and carry the bike up the steps!

Back when I was 40, riding my age wasn’t such a big deal, but it’s more of a challenge every year! I don’t expect to do it when I’m 95, for example, even if I AM still alive and kicking!

I took my oldest bike, the Ritchey Road Logic I got back in 1997. It might not have as many gears, but I feel more of a unity between man and machine riding it than my other bikes.

BTW, it helps that I’ve lost 29 lb from my disturbingly high peak weight! I’m still a fat old guy on a bike, but just a little less fat. Still old, though. No diet for that, yet.

Going to have to be edited to reflect the new FAA rules regarding electronic devices allowed to be used during landing and take off.

Other than that, this video will be ignored after the new car smell has worn off.

Happy upcoming BD.

I turned 58 a couple of months ago and I’m just happy when I can get out of bed with not too much joint pain.

Are there any nuns that still dress like that? They should have shown a Muslim lady in an abaya. They probably fly more frequently than nuns wearing the full habit.

I haven’t been on a plane in 40 yrs. I doubt I’ll ever set foot on another one.

I actually love train travel much better.

If only airplanes were real and not a scientific fraud.

Flying in the air. Yah right.

How gullible do they think we are?

Srsly dude WTF.

I enjoyed the video, although I think they should have shown a Muslim lady instead of the “Sound of Music” nun.

Which of course means that George Soros was right there, invisible, feeding him, like Col. Mandrake fed Gen. Jack Ripper.

Seems Glenn Greenwald wasn’t enough for Brazil, since they went an let another overprivileged douchecanoe into the country:

Justin Bieber identified by his tattoo as he tries to ‘sneak out of brothel covered by bedsheets’ while on tour in Brazil

And just to complete the picture, Bieber cut a show short because someone threw a water bottle onto the stage, a display of self-important disrespect to his fans that even Ted Nugent knows is a bad idea.

Apt line: “You see that little light that just started blinking in the corner of your eye? That’s your Career Dissipation Light, and it just went into overdrive.”

Alderman Martin Swayzak (J.T Walsh), Backdraft (1991)

I bet Greenwald was at that Bieber concert.

re: #17 b.d.

Greenwald is totally jealous that Bieber is more popular than he is even though GLENN IS A BETTER JOURNALIST THAN JUSTIN BIEBER!!!!!!!!

Impossible. I’ve never heard of a concert stadium big enough to hold two egos of that colossal size.

Ted Cruz is apparently going on Leno this week. The Crazy meeting The Unfunny. It’s going to suck.

Someone actually did, and now SyFy is planning a TV movie about someone carrying honey onto a plane only to have it attract Africanized honeybees.

HURR HURR DETH PANELZ!!!!!

I had great cancer doctors and health insurance.My plan was cancelled. Now I worry how long I’ll live.

Maybe UHC cut this person’s shit policy so the UHC CEO can continue to be the highest-paid healthcare CEO of all time?

UHC is withdrawing, altogether, from insuring people in CA - something that happens with some regularity (insurers withdrawing from an area). The problem is the unavailability of insurance companies that cover people in a state, no matter where they live in that state. This is the way insurance companies operate under Medicare. Policies offered to those living in a more populated area 60 miles from me are not available where I live, seriously lessening my choices (only one company offers a Medicare Advantage policy that covers the doctors AND HOSPITAL from whom I get my medical care and, of course, the cost for its policy is more than the other 3 companies that offer Medicare Advantage, two of which are HMOs). I suspect the insurers had everything to do with the law being written this way.

Until we get the money out of politics (it will never happen, IMO), so that our representatives actually represent us and not the corporations with lobbyists, we are screwed - in all areas, not just health care.
