Krummholz stands provide sheltered lunch spots, cozy Perseid-watching backrests, and privacy for diaper changes, nursing, and naps. They're perfect as a tenting windbreak and/or snowfence.
It's not that it was terribly offensive, but what a stupid fucking hostile thing to say.
As an interesting-but-healthy person myself, I’m never sure how to self-label. Unfortunately, labels come with all kinds of baggage.
I think I actually do own a Bible, but it’s buried in a box in the attic. I picked a different large book and started hitting myself with it. Hard.
We observed that youth who cycled at least 1 hour per week had greater cardiovascular fitness, lower body mass index, lower waist circumference and lower cholesterol compared to those who did not cycle. This highlights substantial benefits of cycling even in young people.
The contemporary anti-vaccine movement should by all rights be a small fringe movement. Its tenants have been roundly and repeatedly discredited, and yet it persists.
What if I couldn't keep up, and everyone was waiting and waiting...? What if they crowded around too closely and I took someone down? What if we did a fast descent on a crowded trail, and I had another terrifying full-body wreck? What if I was the only girl? Did I bring enough water?

In my imagination I’m relaxed and graceful. Strong. Fast. Gorgeous and completely badass. It feels so amazing that I almost believe it’s true.
Of course, the actual indigenous Americans have dark skin. It’s the Northern Europeans who are the infiltrators. Oh, the humanity!
Because sexual repression is often disguised as medical advice, actual information can be difficult to tease out of the pearl-clutching.
"Well," he started yelling, "You...need to be over....on the....." he gestured through the haze with his cigarette, too agitated to continue.
This book is a thoughtful discussion about the concept of moral authority and whether critical thinking and rationality might be a more effective way forward for America. Stern believes that the cultural construct of moral authority is not about ethics or morals but is instead an avenue to power.
One reason I nearly always ride alone is that I enjoy quiet solitude and time inside my own head. Another reason is that I'm relatively slow. I ride a cyclocross bomber on routes thick with ultralight flying machines. As it turns out, I don't ride well with others anyway.
It’s astonishing that you have survived natural selection. You’ve not only survived, but you are disturbingly fecund.
