Yeah that's about what I expected. You either didn't, or couldn't, read what I posted. This is my surprised face. Nice unbiased article by the way, written by a misogynist bigot for misogynist bigots. Here I can link to unreliable sources too, http://blog.tieonline.com/trans-athl...etic-trophies/ , since I know you seem to struggle with reading comprehension let me snag a juicy tidbit for you

"The example oft-exploited to fight inclusion is a 2020 case accusing two trans girls at a high school track competition in Connecticut (USA) of robbing a cis girl of her chance at first place. The (rarely mentioned) sequel to this story is that, two days after a law suit was filed on behalf of the cis runner, she won a competition against those same trans girls. (And, incidentally, lost the law suit on grounds that excluding trans athletes is sex-based discrimination under Title IX). "

Anyway you keep on believing your hillbilly fairytales and I'll keep sticking to the facts and let's never meet.

Lmao, no words for anything else I said?? I think that just proves my point even more

Ok, cool. She won against them. That doesn’t make it right though.
A man should NEVER be allowed in a women’s sport and vice versa.

Correct, no more words wasted on you. You're strangely proud of your ignorance and I know that no amount of effort will have any effect on you're enfeebled thinking and feeling organs. You're an evolutionary dead end, sorry friend.

No more words because there are no words left to come from you, you’re bag seems to be fresh out.


Ah I see! my opinions equal ignorance because they don’t match up with yours? Good talk

I know thats what you want to believe, cause you're terrified of reality and your ignorance keeps you safe. But the opinions you stated here today are ignorant regardless of whether I or anyone else even reads them, let alone agrees with them.

Ha! Again, just opinions that many other people that contain the slightest bit of common sense have. Unfortunately you have no common sense, therefore you see any and every opinion that doesn’t match yours as ignorant or irrelevant.

You could have stopped with "I don't like watching golf"...

Of course, baseball is the same way, and both are a good cure for insomnia.

We had a birthday party at work on Thursday, and they hand me a plate with cake and ice cream. WTF?!?

First, what kind of a freak puts ice cream on a plate?

Second, who in the hell wants cake soup?

Put the figgin' cake on a plate, BY ITSELF, and put the damn ice cream in a bowl.

There's two things wrong with that premise. First, it's not as if that isn't already happening. Second, the entire basis of the analogy is flawed, these are not similar but disparate actions. The Protests you guys keep erroneously describing as "cities burning down", were radical action in support of freedom from oppression and discrimination. Your "hypothetical" scenario is radical action in an effort to support oppression and discrimination. In other words ****ing fascism. No I'm not okay with violence to support fascism. Why are you?

Oh?

Los Angeles Budget Committee approved reallocating $133 million from the LAPD budget to other areas like Police Training, mental health services, social services etc, Other cities redirecting police funding include New York, Baltimore, Portland, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C..

31 of the country’s 100 largest cities have passed policies restricting the use of chokeholds by law enforcement, driving the total number up to 62 of the country’s 100 largest cities with such policies.

Breonna’s Law has been passed in Louisville, Kentucky, banning the kind of “no-knock” search warrant that led to Breonna Taylor’s death.

New York state legislature repealed 50-a, a former law that obscured police disciplinary records from the public.

Detroit, Buffalo, Dallas, and Charlotte, police departments are enacting and strengthening “duty-to-intervene” policies, which require officers to step in when their colleagues use excessive force.

Several monuments honoring enslavers, colonizers, and Confederate leaders have been removed, including statues of Confederate General Stonewall Jackson in Richmond, Virginia and of Confederate President Jefferson Davis in Frankfurt, Kentucky.

The Pentagon enacted a policy banning the Confederate flag from military bases around the world, and the Senate recently passed a provision to rename military bases named after Confederate officers.

Mississippi is changing their state flag to no longer include the Confederate flag.

NASCAR has banned the confederate flag from being flown at any of their events or racetracks

School districts are adopting racial equity policies to desegregate schools, close racial gaps among students, and reform the way they teach and discipline students and hire and train staff. Among them are school districts in Milwaukee, Indianapolis, San Diego, and Philadelphia.

Schools and colleges are ending their contracts with local police departments and working to phase police presence out of their campuses in favor of mental health and social work staff.


Lol, everything you right wing nut jobs says isn't just wrong, it also serves to exemplify your flagrant and willful ignorance. At least your consistent I guess.

Not as global as you guys' discussion, but I've rebuilt 3 sets of motorcycle forks in the last week and all of them had some weird schit going on inside of them.

The first was a set of KYB SSS closed cartridge forks from a YZ250 that had exploded the stock plastic free pistons. I was just going to order stock ones... nope, they're well over $300 each since they're only sold as an assembly with the guts of the cartridge. I ended up installing some fancy billet ones from Zeta that were $70 for the pair. Oh, each fork leg had different brand seals and wipers on it, who rebuilds just one leg?

Set #2 were 48mm KYB open chambers from a 2007 WR250F. I opened them up thinking this was going to be a quick 1/2 hour fork seal replacement, but when I went to dump the oil out of the first leg, some green snot resembling Nickelodeon Slime started to ooze out. I had to disassemble EVERYTHING to get all the snot out, only took an extra few hours. I was with my friend when he bought this bike new, and he had obviously never serviced it until now, when his forks recently started leaking. Sure, offroad bikes recommended service intervals can be stretched if you're not following a race schedule, but 14 years?!

Set 3 (currently on the bench) is a pair of 47mm Showa closed cartridge forks from a 2000 CR250R. Leg #1 had a whopping 200cc of "oil" in them (which is just over 1/2 what it should have had) that had so much glitter in that I was questioning if there was more metal than oil. The cartridge on leg #2 did not want to come out even with enough force for the cap wrench to start bending, so I put some heat to it... yep, somebody loctited that one. I poured the cleanish oil out of that which had a full 370cc's, but I'm 99% sure it had motor oil in it (hey, 5w30 is probably the same as 5wt, right?!) Once again, somebody had previously rebuilt only 1 leg.

I guess that's not much of a rant, and in reality, I love working on bikes. Just constantly surprised by weird/dumb stuff I find. You wouldn't believe the ttr125 I just went through... and don't get me started on the current covid-tax pricing on seemingly everything related to recreation.

Ahhhh fork seals. Not the most glamorous job but satisfying nonetheless. I don't think I've ever seen what I expected to find inside the forks on any bike I've worked on. I guess the same could be said for about 80% of the components I've ever cracked open...either the content or capacity is questionable. I guess that's the beauty of assembly line production.

So you pretty much want it both ways. Uhhh got it.

Of course they're not similar actions but that's not what I asked your opinion of. Simply want to know if that's an approved action to "get shit done". Forget all about the ideological side. In your eyes, is it okay to set fire to someone else's property to achieve a result that you feel strong about?

Yes or no answer. Anything else and you proved my point that you "want it both ways".....

First off I am under no obligation to meet your disingenuous standards, so you can stick this "yes or no" shit right up your ass, especially after you promoted terrorist attacks against healthcare centers. Life isn't that simple, and insisting it is, or that my arguments must be, is a strawman and just emphasizes how weak your argument is. If you're incapable of asserting your position with anything other regurgitated single sentence propaganda or 3 or 4 word gotcha questions, then you don't actually have a position.

So once again, I already answered that question; there's a difference between civil unrest and terrorism.

This X100!!

I think that's so tacky to display all those manufacturers stickers like so many people do.

We get it, you spent a bunch of money on stuff. Congratulations.

If I'm not getting paid to show it off, it's gotta be a damn cool sticker before it goes on any of my shit..
I don't even put them on my RC's for that exact reason..
