So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


No thanks, I'll walk

An email from my friend, KR, this morning:

Here’s a great reason(s) not to take up running …

In his book, Karnazes describes in gripping detail the pain and exhaustion of running his first 100-mile race in a mountain range with an elevation change of 38,000 feet (11,580 m) -- equivalent to climbing up and down the Empire State Building 15 times.

"The first time I did it was really a journey into the unknown," he said. "I had no idea if I could withstand it."

Despite "pretty severe blisters, losing a toe nail as well as temporarily going blind," he made it.

Editorial comment: WTF? Is this guy smoking crack or something? What makes THIS fun?

    I can think of more fun ways to go blind, thank you very much.

    Why, yes, now that you mention it. I vaguely remember hearing that you'd go blind from masturbating. But, I know that isn't true. I'd not only be blind, but my eyes would have been gouged out. Hee hee.
