'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

Got myself this bike on a Flash sale. Didn't last too long the first try, plus the reset button's a bit touchy. Probably didn't get enough distance to be worth noting either way.

Yesterday was NBD (new bike day) for my wife and I. She's been wanting to get a better bike for a while and I've been eyeing a gravel bike called Checkpoint for months.

 

Oddly enough, one of each of our preferred models was in stock about an hour and a half away, and only 30 miles from each other. So we left the kids at my parents (which was on the way even) so they could do their school work while we had a "date day" spending more money then I'm used to.

 

In the end, it'll be worth it. Her's is a Trek Verve 3 Disc Low Step, mine is a Trek Checkpoint ALR 4.

I'm assuming that you count each lift/pushup/etc and not just sets of 10, right? Just rode the bike a bit, did some arm lifts with weights (estimated the count) and squats. It's a start.

Five days but didn't really go walking, whoops. I'm plateau-ing at 169lbs. Gotta shock the body. Still have six months to lose 5lbs per month to get to 140lbs.

Thanks. Biking is relatively new to her, and this is her first non-big box store of her life. Its fitted to her height and so far has been much more enjoyable for her to ride.

This is my mountain bike, a Trek X-Caliber 8. Named it the Defiant. Havent settled on a name for my gravel bike yet. Torn between just calling it the Checkpoint, or, as my son suggested, Rodimus.

It was my sister's birthday yesterday and I got half a cake all to myself, aaaaah! And cookies. I'm eating one slice every second day, to pace myself, whew.

It's been 11 days and I got ruined by three celebrations. It was my sister's birthday then mother's day then my other sister's birthday. All with food and cake. So I'm back at 167lbs, even though I've been exercising.

Well, just gotta eat less and exercise more.

Ive recently realized that cycling (a sport Ive utterly fallen in love with) doesnt keep me trim. 20 miles in a day? Thats cute. Heres another 5 pounds.

Starting today Im going to try and get back to a more balanced approach. Still going to be cycling, a lot really, but going to add back in running and all of the weight training that helped me slim down a few years back.
