I had a lot of things I planned to do yesterday, hit That Fish Place was one of them... however, a quick scan of their inventory on their website was enough to tell my a trip to Lancaster was not worth the time. Instead, I spent a small bit of time unsubscribing to some of the numerous political emails I get daily. Everybody wants me to part with my money for the cause. The sad truth is that they will bankrupt you given the chance. Believe me, I have no problem scrolling to the bottom and hitting the unsubscribe button. The reason I give every one of them: 'you're sending me too many damn emails.'
And then, of course, I crashed while on the treadmill. I blame the video I was watching. The guy wearing the GoPro was jogging along, passing the occasional person on the trail, as he made his way through the snow around Loch an Eilein in Scotland when he came to a gate. There was a couple standing there. They realized the guy with the GoPro was approaching as they started through the gate, and then they stopped. He jerked to the left to avoid crashing into them, and I did likewise. My foot hit the side of the treadmill and down I went, sliding off the back and into my dumbbells. No worries. I've learned how to fall well. So, I turned off the video and got back on to finish, knowing I basically needed to change my route and never watch that video. This is called learning. Oh, and half an hour later I was on my bike riding around St Moritz.

A number of top legal law firms are girding up to challenge racist election laws like the one passed in Georgia. You know, this pisses the hell out of white Republicans. Their supremacy is being challenged from every angle. Oh, well, tough shit. You see, they're running on their own treadmill, watching their own little video, and something herkie jerky happens and they crash and fall down. However, instead of learning anything, they take a step to the right and get on another treadmill which is playing the same video. They're falling down more often and learning less each time. This is how evolution works.
