Why can’t I buy this t-shirt?

As is most often the case around sales time, there is nothing to fit me or if there is the colours/designs are awful. The only thing I covet nowadays is owning one of these t-shirts. I might even pay a 30% premium. Stores are missing a trick.

Motorcycling reduces stress

According to a Harley-Davidson funded UCLA study, motorcycling reduces stress. The report findings were:

  • Riding a motorcycle decreased hormonal biomarkers of stress (cortisol) by 28%

  • On average, riding a motorcycle for 20 minutes increased participants’ heart rates by 11% and adrenaline levels by 27% —similar to light exercise

  • Sensory focus was enhanced while riding a motorcycle versus driving a car, an effect also observed in experienced meditators versus non-meditators

  • Changes in study participants’ brain activity while riding suggested an increase in alertness similar to drinking a cup of coffee.

CM already knew the benefits. Nice to have them confirmed.

KTM wins 18th straight Dakar

Aussie Toby Price has won the grueling 10-day Dakar endurance race in Peru overnight. Despite starting the race with a broken wrist, he still managed to overcome his disadvantage.

This chalks up Austrian brand KTM’s 18th consecutive victory. The manufacturer took 2nd and 3rd with its sister brand, Husqvarna taking 4th & 5th.

Gillette Lecture Series – 2

What was Gillette saying in Lecture 1 about it being high time men deal with toxic masculinity? Is this picture what it really meant when it supported the #METOO movement? Hypocrites.

WaPo hunting for Whoppers

Has the Washington Post taken leave of its senses? Was It a matter of national emergency or interest to report on whether the $2,437.11 hamburger bill personally paid by Trump to host the Clemson Tigers champions at the White House required to be fact checked? Not exactly a light news day. No progress in the shutdown, Brexit failure etc

No, such is the level of Trump Derangement Syndrome that the fabled “Democracy Dies in Darkness” newspaper showed its own incredible pettiness. To give an idea of how insane the reporting was, WaPo fact checked Trump’s claim that there were 1,000 burgers stacked a mile high. “FACT CHECK: at 2 inches each one thousand burgers wouldn’t reach 1 mile high.” Have the editors heard or ‘figure of speech’?

CM must be dreaming? Do the editors at the WaPo honestly think it’s erudite elitist readers will be amazed at the President telling another porkie? Will it become a topic at dinner tables? Overs trivial $2,500 of his own dime. For all of Trump’s faults, this paper clearly shows it has little or no ability to be objective.

Stupidity lives in sunlight.

Shaving bliss without “irritation”

Thanks Gillette. Now this Schick Hydro5 razor promises to keep away skin irritation. For customers it’s even nicer to know there are no other “irritations” to worry about.
