Re: Musing about 5620: new Revelstoke Bike Park trail

Posted by: SixZeroSixOne

So Revelstoke Mountain Resort are opening a new bike park on July 26. And the gondola access does not go to the top of the trails....

In fact, if you want to ride their signature trail, you get out of the gondola (at 1700m above sea level!) and wheeze your way up another 7km & 518m of climbing (that's quite a bit more than climbing up Fromme to 7th from the car park).

Sure, you get a 15km descent (of 5620 feet, hence the trail name) but surely not building descending trails straight out of the gondola is a huge mistake?

I suspect their marketing department were driving this decision! Anyway, I guess they probably will open up more trails eventually (and more choice is good) but I'll skip a visit this year!

I should add that the resort will have e-bikes available for hire, not surprisingly.

Sounds like a blast. Love Revelstoke.

But I was aiming more for how many genders there now, pronouns and identifiers, political or religious affils, etc.

So many different subsets that apparently require exclusivity of almost anything else.

Funny you go there. My middle son is dating some hipster who doesn’t want to be referred to as her or she. It’s here name, they or them. WTF!  

Screams high maintenance.

How about as a Bartender, I avoid all pronouns. Some shit they got going on now.

It's not high maintenance, it's pure control. Plain and simple.

High maintenance or control, all the same. Take it from someone married for 25 years.

There is something a little unsettling seeing a flying man with a machine gun.  I think our post-apocalyptic future is right on track.

I thought that to, but when I thought about it, what an easy target. Skeet shooting anyone?

What if it's not an Antman lookalike up there. Throw Boston Dynamic's attack dog on one (or two) and then wot mate.

Even Bradley Cooper could plug those.

A-Team was a good movie ;)

I highly doubt Boston Dynamics is being honest with the populace.

😂🤣😅

Even though Islamic's have stated their goal is a world wide caliphate and will subvert the US (and Canadian) democracy via votes to install it?

Do you know what that entails (post Caliphate)?

All religious bullshit but I could see how some would buy that, shit,Trumps in the Whitehouse. Some will buy anything.

Ok so you dont know.

Which are you, divided or conquered?

Those terms are one and the same, I would say I’m neither.

Wag the dog is his whole act, and if some don’t think what he said is racist and or sexist, well enough said.

Riiight, media and you tell me he's racist so if I disagree, that technically makes me a racist right?

Never called you a racist, are you? I don’t care what the media says about that. I’m a big boy and have my own opinion, just like you. Why are those women in politics? Because they don’t like America? C’mon , that’s pathetic.

Nope but I'm easily mistaken for one. Did you know there used to be a law prohibiting Islamic's from being in US Congress/government?

No.  I would never agree to such a law. If the people vote you in you’re in. Just so we’re clear , I also believe the most votes win.

It takes a lot of energy to supercool conductors, and that energy would have to be generated.  It would also have to be done at 100% efficiency to not leave a heat signature, which isn't likely.

it's like you're playing a game of golf using the rules of football. 

when it comes to the potential of ufo's, all known rules pretty much go out the window.

Sooo that makes me the expert in this thread then right ;)

Just like every other thread.

Does anyone give this idea much thought these days?

How prevalent it is in our day to day social construct?

Perhaps its me but ever notice how conversation isnt what it once was or could be?

Yes, we all spend too much time online talking shit.

You realize what may come from the Mueller testimony may not be what you actually want?

LOL. It sounds like you think there might be some good stuff for Trump in the interview. I wouldn't hold my breath. The report is clear. Trump obstructed justice. I doubt Mueller is going to go much further than the report, so I expect a re-hash of what we already know with the possibility of some additional detail.

Anyhoo, now we have Epstein to add to Trump's anxiety.  You know it's bad when he is distracting us from believing he is a rapist by showing us he is a racist.

You and I may both be hoping for something different from Mueller. You hope he could still be Trump's downfall and I'm semi hoping Mueller knows more about Epstein and he'll be between the proverbial rock and a bigger rock (if they question him on anything related to Epstein that is).

I highly doubt you give Trump enough credit for being smart enough to apply misdirection techniques. I do understand you think Trump's base is racist so he's playing to it but some people dont see a lot of racism in what he said and no, I havent read or heard the whole excerpt.
