I kick ass on a Saturday night

First, you have the glory that is Paris Hilton. And then you have the glory that is Tuscon:

A woman on her nightly stroll was aggressively propositioned by a man in a vehicle that didn’t even have a backseat, according to a Pima County Sheriff’s Department report.

I envy these guys a little bit.

[T]here’s something special about the long and winding rail trail. There’s an epic adventure waiting to happen—just add biker.

Case in point: last spring Franklin Jefferson Wuerthele and I cranked out a 267-mile self-supported tour along the Great Allegheny Passage and C&O Canal Trail from Southwestern Pennsylvania to Washington, DC. Except for a short segment of pavement at the beginning, and a short mid-ride detour, we rode on a relatively-level, car-free trail all day long. Amid spectacularly scenic surroundings that blended nature and history in an tasty mix.

I don’t envy Boonen right now. Well, maybe just a little bit anyway:

Remember when GT took Europe by storm? Those were the days. Team GT/Lotto. Tchmil had class.

Lance is bringing even more talent with him to Leadville this year. Levi at Leadville? ‘Definitely’.

In the 1970′s I attended Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX. I met some guys there that told me about a Dallas Houston bicycle challenge. This was a formal time trial to see who could go the fastest by bike from Dallas to Houston (or vice versa). I can’t find any mention of this time trial on the internet. There was a guy I met at SFA in 1974 who was supposed to hold the record. Just wondering if you had heard of this?

I’ve got nothing. Anyone? Put it in the comment section if you do.

And then I’m like what? Scientists Discover Booze That Won’t Give You a Hangover.

Kwang-il Kwon and Hye Gwang Jeong of Chungnam National University have discovered that drinking alcohol with oxygen bubbles added leads to fewer hangovers and a shorter sobering up time.

Just as long as that sobering up time is right before the workday starts and not well before the bar closes. You gotta hit that sweet spot or it’s all not worth the trouble.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Paris Hilton is hawt, even with her skinny legs. I’d scratch her quarter panel with my cleat if she got in my lane tho.

    Rail Trails R kewl, just dusted off the ‘cross rig yesterday, the poor man’s 29er. See yez out here.

  2. Wouldn’t fuck Paris Hilton with YOUR dick, Jonny, but that second story really resonates with me. I ride a piece of the C&O just about every day and I can tell you that it is a treasure. 184 car-free miles. What’s not to like? And I’ve ridden a bit on the Allegany Trail too. Some of the pretties country you will ever see. Wish you could check it out some day.

  3. RE: that video… just because it’s bike related, doesn’t make it worth watching. What a strange dog that was.

  4. Shocking exposé coming straight outta Columbia MO:

    Thanks to boingboing for the tip-off. Free the beer!

    (When I was in college in Bellingham, we lived next door to a guy who drove a truck for the Coors distributor. This was back when Coors was the only date-coded brand of beer. Anyway, the dude knew we were poor and would leave expired beer on our back porch. Now that’s an uplifting tale of human kindness.)

  5. Expired Michelob Ultra? I wouldn’t give that shit away to my enemies. Nasty. It’s surely not worth risking your job over! This is surely a ridiculous example of attention to technicalities where none should be. Then again, the beer was thrown away, and they saved it from taking up room in the landfill. They will even probably recycle the cans/bottles, which wasn’t on the agenda by the ‘person’ ordering the beer to be wasted.

  6. The beer was canned— aluminum recycles extremely well.

    And I bet there’s lots of dirtbags and college students who would line up for free Mich Ultra. Nasty beer is better than no beer.
