You should call. I’ve been in a situation like that before where I had information relating someone who later raped and murdered an 11 year old. The 18 year old dude used to show up with the girl to the aquatics facility I managed back in my parks and rec days, and the interaction between the two of them was weird Read more

Others have posted about what mips is.  My new helmet is mips.  Feels like wearing a hard hat in a good way.

One of the things I think New Mexico really got right was preventing any new municipality from forming within five miles of any other. It has largely prevented such checkerboard development from occurring by generally forcing new development to be annexed by existing cities instead of incorporating as their own Read more

I figured that might be a big part of it. As Las Cruces grows dealing with the various water and sewer (or lack of therefore) utilities in semi-rural outlying areas is a big part of what and when things get annexed. Through it’s extra-territorial zoning authority the city has condemned and then incorporated a number of Read more

That’s no bueno. Also, I’m not familiar enough of CA law to know anything about it, but how have those islands not been annexed (even involuntarily) by the city?  Are you all running different utility systems than the city?

Also, the cop who’s horse was stolen will never, ever be able to live that down.  That is how nicknames are earned.

While not to condone a riot or make light of a serious situation, in and of itself stealing a police horse and riding it through town is a pretty creative shenanigan to pull. On the condition the horse was unharmed and it doesn’t spark a riot, I’d like to think I’d buy that person a beer after they get out of prison Read more

That’s a good question. I know entire posts can be obliterated to a random timestamp by the mods. I don’t know if a comment thread itself can be.  If so, I wouldn’t be opposed this being moved to old business and filed off in the great random.

I generally remember the post. It was also dealt with, and I have no wish to bring old business into this. My intention was to offer a friendly off-ramp from anyone feeling the need to devolve into such shenanigans.

I have no issues with, and also like you. Oppo is better for having you here. I don’t think it flagrantly crossed the line of excellence (is this a technical term? It should be...), but it also doesn’t promote warm and fuzzies or even offer constructive criticism. All I wanted to do is offer a friendly check in hopes Read more

It was meant as a mild question to a response that seemed unnecessarily personal, and I concede it is entirely possible there was external context from elsewhere or otherwise something I just missed. Read more

I’ve used mine mostly for road rides, but I’ve also done some dirt/gravel irrigation ditch bank riding. Not nearly as comfortable as a real suspension mtb on bumps and washboard, but works fine enough. It’s nice enough on the road that I can ride the miles to those ditchbanks and home instead driving there with it on Read more

My two doggos also got baths this afternoon, which they similarly did not enjoy. I keep telling them it is a small price to pay for living in the house and sleeping on beds.
