Featuring two ex pros lapping a bunch of hillbillies who think threshold is what you work the cornfields with and then leading out their slow ass teammate to complete the podium sweep! Rated-R for REALLY-LAME!

So Tradewhine, why weren't you guys in St Loser getting your buttwhuppins like Merci did?

And BTW was there a good reason why TNW got cancelled last night!?!? Coulda run a senior wheelchair crit before we even got a DROP OF RAIN. AND WHO CARES IF IT RAINS? Plenty of dudes got wet out at the crit when NEET was running it...

    "hillbillies who think threshold is what you work the cornfields"

    r5 sounds like a Yankees fan.

    Some please explain to me why Kansas City is so much worse than St. Louis in cycling right now. Embarrassing.

  4. Conquest of Britian was the first exception to it.
    The only accession which the Roman empire received, during the first century of the Christian era, was the province of Britain. In this single instance the successors of Caesar and Augustus were persuaded to follow the example of the former, rather than the precept of the latter. The proximity of its situation to the coast of Gaul seemed to invite their arms; the pleasing, though doubtful intelligence, of a pearl fishery, attracted their avarice; (6) and as Britain was viewed in the light of a distinct and insulated world, the conquest scarcely formed any exception to the general system of continental measures. After a war of about forty years, undertaken by the most stupid, maintained by the most dissolute, and terminated by the most timid of all the emperors, the far greater part of the island submitted to the Roman yoke. (7) The various tribes of Britons possessed valour without conduct, and the love of freedom without the spirit of union. They took up arms with savage fierceness; they laid them down, or turned them against each other with wild inconstancy; and while they fought singly, they were successively subdued. Neither the fortitude of Caractacus, nor the despair of Boadicea, nor the fanaticism of the Druids, could avert the slavery of their country, or resist the steady progress of the Imperial generals, who maintained the national glory, when the throne was disgraced by the weakest, or the most vicious of mankind. At the very time when Domitian, confined to his palace, felt the terrors which he inspired; his legions, under the command of the virtuous Agricola, defeated the collected force of the Caledonians at the foot of the Grampian hills; and his fleets, venturing to explore an unknown and dangerous navigation, displayed the Roman arms round every part of the island. The conquest of Britain was considered as already achieved; (8) and it was the design of Agricola to complete and ensure his success by the easy reduction of Ireland, for which in his opinion, one legion and a few auxiliaries were sufficient. (9) The western isle might be improved into a valuable possession, and the Britons would wear their chains with the less reluctance, if the prospect and example of freedom were on every side removed from before their eyes.

  6. What's this blog about?

  7. It's a technical journal. Here are some tips:

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recommends building a dike with a width at the base that is three times the dike height. For example, a 4-foot-high dike would have a base width of 12 feet. The corps indicates that each foot of finished dike length requires one bag, each foot of height requires three bags, and each 2.5 feet of width requires three bags. This results in each bag having placed dimensions of about 4 inches high by 10 inches wide by 14 inches long.

    Use the following equation to estimate the number of bags required per linear foot of dike for a dike with a base width that is three times the height.

    N = (3 x H) + (9 x H x H) / 2
    N -- Number of bags required per linear foot of dike
    H -- Dike height (feet)

    Example:
    Estimate the number of bags required per linear foot for a dike 3 feet tall.
    N = (3 x 3) + (9 x 3 x 3) / 2 = 45 bags

    The estimated number of bags needed for 100 linear feet of dike is:

    1-foot-high dike: 600
    2-foot-high dike: 2,100
    3-foot-high dike: 4,500
    4-foot-high dike: 7,800

    A common recommendation is to make the dike twice as wide as its height. This is a minimum width-to-height ratio that should be used. The estimated number of bags needed for this ratio is in the following table. This is based on each bag having placed dimensions of about 4 to 5 inches high by 9 to 10 inches wide by 14 inches long.

  10. Best comments ever revisitedMay 25, 2011 at 7:41 PM

    Romanticism (or the Romantic Era) was a complex artistic, literary and intellectual movement that originated in the second half of the 18th century in Europe, and gained strength in reaction to the Industrial Revolution.[1] In part, it was a revolt against aristocratic social and political norms of the Age of Enlightenment and a reaction against the scientific rationalization of nature.[2] It was embodied most strongly in the visual arts, music, and literature, but had a major impact on historiography,[3] education[4] and natural history.[5]
    The movement validated strong emotion as an authentic source of aesthetic experience, placing new emphasis on such emotions as trepidation, horror and terror and awe—especially that which is experienced in confronting the sublimity of untamed nature and its picturesque qualities, both new aesthetic categories. It elevated folk art and ancient custom to something noble, made of spontaneity a desirable character (as in the musical impromptu), and argued for a "natural" epistemology of human activities as conditioned by nature in the form of language and customary usage.
    Romanticism reached beyond the rational and Classicist ideal models to elevate a revived medievalism and elements of art and narrative perceived to be authentically medieval, in an attempt to escape the confines of population growth, urban sprawl, and industrialism, and it also attempted to embrace the exotic, unfamiliar, and distant in modes more authentic than Rococo chinoiserie, harnessing the power of the imagination to envision and to escape.
    The modern sense of a romantic character may be expressed in Byronic ideals of a gifted, perhaps misunderstood loner, creatively following the dictates of his inspiration rather than the mores of contemporary society.

    I believe romanticists are the 18th century hipster. They tried so hard to be different. The only difference is that most true romanticists went and died by the blade of The Ottoman Empire for Greek freedom where as hipsters just give judging glances. In similarity romantisists were looking for the meaning of life through nature, where hipsters like to think about the meaning of life right after they smoke their natural weed. Hipsters and Romanticists are much alike

    ReplyDelete
  30. Have we ever had solid evidence prior to "going to town" on someone? Lets see....if you know him, he hates St. Louis, has been around the cycling scene in KC long enough to know everyone mentioned in this blog, he never does the TNW so is not worried about getting his *ss kicked for showing up.....and when there was a massive delay in posting this winter he just so happened to be out of the country. Not to mention Mr. Gaherty is a complete schmuck that spends his time lurking at races and interacts with nobody. We have our R5. I hope "My Wife Inc" is cool with it.

  31. So, I have not looked at this site for over 6 months, and now all the sudden I am getting phone calls, and texts wanting to know if I am R5. Ok, fellow douche bags, I wish I could take credit for this site, but I am not that creative nor have the time to waste entertaining you douche bags. It sounds like some people have been in a circle jerk, drinking some Bud Light and drip coffee, using their intellect and deductive reasoning skills to come to this conclusion! Really, you probably need to ask your university, college … for your money back. Yes, I hate St. Louis, and no I do not do ‘your’ TNW, but I do the original TNW in Lees Summit, I bet you did not even know there was a TNW in Lees Summit. As for not hanging out and talking to you, sorry, but if you would show up to the cross races, and quit sand bagging in the 4s, well, no I probably still would not talk to you. And by the way, I like most of the people being bagged on this site, especially JB. So, piss off

    With Love,

  33. No, r5 can't quit. It's too bad that the assholes sandbagging and claiming any and all prizes can't take the criticism they deserve for being shit heads. Since when do you deserve a pat on the back and a hand job for riding a bike?

    If you suck, stop being a pile, cat up, and you won't be ridiculed on the oh-so-important-to-your-life world wide web.
