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.

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.
