Does anyone have experience mtbing in the Barcelona area?

Anyone need a dishwasher?

I ran into a problem like that once and it turned out whoever had in stalled the garburator did not punch out the plug in the housing the dishwasher hose plugs into.

Some water was able to leak through it somehow so it drained a bit but always had water at the end of the cycle.

It took me less than 30 minutes to find the problem and deal with it.

Nice!! You will have an awesome time just about everywhere you go.

Remember that Kuta is a tourist town and you will look like Christmas dinner (if Buddhists have such a thing). Learn to say "No thank you" in the local language it will come in handy (about 600 times a day).

Helmet laws....

may be reducing head injuries by reducing the number of people riding bikes….

"Cycling is popular among children, but results in thousands of injuries annually. In recent years, many states and localities have enacted bicycle helmet laws. We examine direct and indirect effects of these laws on injuries. Using hospital-level panel data and triple difference models, we find helmet laws are associated with reductions in bicycle-related head injuries among children. However, laws also are associated with decreases in non-head cycling injuries, as well as increases in head injuries from other wheeled sports. Thus, the observed reduction in bicycle-related head injuries may be due to reductions in bicycle riding induced by the laws."

the whole thing, if you dare, is here

^^^ Ah, how times have changed. Where now a left-handed person is accepted as president. What a world :)

I thought Democrats always used their left wing…

Sounds like you want to be The Deliverator!

The Deliverator belongs to an elite order, a hallowed sub-category. He's got esprit up to here. Right now he is preparing to carry out his third mission of the night. His uniform is black as activated charcoal, filtering the very light out of the air. A bullet will bounce off its arachno-fiber weave like a wren hitting a patio door, but excess perspiration wafts through it like a breeze through a freshly napalmed forest. Where his body has bony extremities, the suit has sintered armorgel: feels like gritty jello, protects like a stack of telephone books.

The Deliverator's car has enough potential energy packed into its batteries to fire a pound of bacon into the Asteroid Belt. Unlike a bimbo box or a Burb beater, the Deliverator's car unloads that power through gaping, gleaming, polished sphincters. When the Deliverator puts the hammer down, shit happens. You want to talk contact patches? Your car's tires have tiny contact patches, talk to the asphalt in four places the size of your tongue. The Deliverator's car has big sticky tires with contact patches the size of a fat lady's thighs. The Deliverator is in touch with the road, starts like a bad day, stops on a peseta.

Thanks Neal!!!

What is the purpose of the cock bat? I can't google that term from my work computer for fear of what it will find.

I can't figure out what purpose it serves. The chainmail bib makes me think it's a protective measure, but why leave the sensitive bits exposed?

It is an indicator of your status in the tribe.

The higher your status the bigger the bat. In the south pacific nation of Vanuatu the bat is called a "Namba" and if you were the chief you were Namba 1.

Tire replacement - AWD

Same thing happened to me last year.

I went to the place I got the tires from originally and they bought back the old tires.

Sucks to have to buy 4 because 1 is dead.
