Palate cleanser

I watch this video once a week. Some people are blessed with intestinal fortitude, and an iron will. Heart.

  3. Yeah, there probably is.

  4. Cool, like Liddell, ‘Chariots of Fire’, another true story.

  7. Well, sure she had lots of kick left at the end, what with her taking a break and sitting down in the middle of the race.

    By the way, the Plantar Fasciitis turned out to be a bone spur. Getting that cleaned up and should be back on the circuit in 2013.

    Last thing, google chrome wants to make “fasciitis” into “fascists.” Don’t be evil.

  8. So you can do IM Wisconsin with me, or Racine 70.3.

  9. It’s the small skinny ones, and the short chunky ones, who do good.

    And it’s not the video. It’s real. These girls would kick Schwartzenegger’s and Stallone’s behinds.

  11. Thanks. My son will be watching this tomorrow.

  12. This didn’t make any sense, and even the music wasn’t too good.

    I think

    We’re off to see the wizard,
    The wonderful Wizard of Oz

    ….is a much more inspiring song.

    Winston Churchill sang it in down times during World War II.

    He thought it was an Australian song – he knew nothing about the movie (or book)

  13. Don’t give up {fe51bd}.

  14. What — the world didn’t end? Crap!

    See you racists later.

  15. Thanks, JD I needed that today.

  16. Remarkable

    Colonel Haiku (b1d63b)

  17. you can contrast this with the johnboehner

    when the johnboehner falls, he stays down

    he curls up and cries

    LEADERSHIP is what Team R deems this

    Me i am not so sure

  18. I’m not committing to any triathalons, JD. I think I would drown in the swimming part. I run by those guys training in Lake Michigan by Oak Street Beach and give them much respect. Maybe I’ll start with the bike part, since I’m owed a new cycle this year. Then, who knows.

  19. 18. Absentee ballot fraud.

    This is only made more likely by voter ID laws.

  20. That was very impressive. Good for her.

    10/10.

  22. No, voter ID laws don’t make absentee ballot fraud more likely; they also don’t make it less. And it’s surely a far bigger problem than in-person fraud. But that’s not a reason not to do anything about it, especially such a simple thing. Absentee fraud has to be tackled too. Perhaps by making people apply for their absentee ballots in person, and showing ID at that time.
