  1. p.s. glad to hear they dropped the reckless driving charge!
  2. I agree. As well as burning up a lot of gas. Sorry, but I have no sympathy for someone who gets a ticket for speeding, and in fact I wish more people would! Even at high speeds the mini gets incredible gas mileage. It's a MINI, not a dodge viper or something. 30+mpg, not 8. I deserved a speeding ticket...but I think most occasions in which people are ticketed are unwarranted. the mini's mileage may not decrease that much when driving faster than 55, but most cars do... Fuel Consumption at Higher Speeds While it may seem intuitive that driving at higher speeds consumes more fuel, exact data on just how much a difference that makes model-by-model isn’t readily available. The editors at the German weekly Auto Bild recently changed that, however, publishing (12 May 2006) a head-to-head comparison of the fuel consumption of 16 different models of cars under higher speed driving conditions. http://www.greencarcongress.com/2006/05/fuel_consumptio.html http://bioage.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/autobild1.png
  3. nice work, Robert. keep spreadin the word!
  4. may 4: 3 miles on the treadmill in about 25 min. (last training sess. before the 5k on sunday, felt pretty good) a handful of crunches and push-ups
  5. may 1: 3.1 mile run on the treadmill (around 26 min.) doing the 5k on sunday should be okay, probably not fun, but okay.
  6. apr. 27 3.3 miles on the treadmill - 31 minutes (2 min. walk, 10 min. run, 3 min. walk, 10 min. run, 2 min. walk, 1 min. run, 3 min. walk) felt pretty good some crunches and push-ups
  7. i think nate from six feet under was veg*n. lisa, his first wife, definitely was... ... A strict vegan whose wardrobe consisted of baggy dresses, overalls and clogs; she didn't go to movies because film, which is processed with gelatin from animal hooves, contributes to the "global slavery of animals"; and when she wanted to get rid of ants in her kitchen she sat on the floor and politely asked them to leave. ... http://www.hbo.com/sixfeetunder/cast/characters/lisa_fisher.shtml i've only seen six feet under's first season and part of the last, but i highly recommend it.
  8. apr. 24 ran 2 miles apr. 25 a few minutes of crunches whoa, i need to slow down. riiiight...
  9. yeah, muscle burns more calories than fat and it's all about calories in (eaten) versus calories out (burned), so exercise will definitely help. congrats on the progress!

  13. looks like some kind of hip replacement to me.
  14. actually, it looks like it's a hoax. (sorry!) some people on another message board were saying it is. sure enough, i just found this: Tagging Air Force One Status: Fake A video on stillfree.com shows a guy (Mark Ecko) spraying graffiti on Air Force One. This involves him avoiding armed guards, climbing over fences, and then sprinting across the tarmac to write "Still Free" on the plane's engine. The video is well done, but fake. As a disclaimer on the site reads: "You, the viewer of the preceeding are hereby advised that the video does not depict a real event. It is intended for the sole, limited and express purpose of entertainment and to induce you, the viewer of the video, to think critically about freedom of expression and speech and the government's responses to the same." http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax ~i didn't notice that disclaimer just goes to show, you can't trust anything on the internet.
