The snack food that I have rotated to recently. Takis are life. Takis are love. All hail Takis.

With it will go the hospitals, at least the rural ones. Prepare for the Thunderdome.

Print Story argh so close
i tied the course record for this one steep hill on Strava after a while of trying. it's a pretty short one, like, 42ft of elevation gain in less than a block and the record is like 17s. the other day I went up in like 19 and realized I had a shot if I got a running start. the thing is, because it's so short, it's not immediately clear what the beginning or end of the segment is, and this also means the granularity of the record keeping is not so good. it's also kind of directly perpendicular to a main road so you can't get much of a straight running start unless there's no traffic. anyway, drat, I only tied it rather than getting king of the mountain here.

because it's really a broader term. though I don't believe in happy endings, so most funny stuff to me isn't a comedy.
