Why sharks circle before they attack

Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors of a sunken ship. "Follow me son" the father shark said to the son shark and they swam to the mass of people. "First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing." And they did. "Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing." And they did. "Now we eat everybody." And they did.

When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't we just eat them all at first? Why did we swim around and around them?"

His wise father replied, "Because they taste better without the shit inside!"

Felt tired and old yesterday, today just old....

so here i am yelling at some young 70 year old punks down the street. seems like they are drag racing their three wheel bikes(wish i had one) again in front of my house

yesterday after a lot of time off the bike i got up at an insane early time of the morning(6:30) and went for a ride. now usually the first ride with time off i feel strong. well not that day. here you can see i had to get off the bike and walk while doing intervals.
yes i know the beard makes me look 40-50 years older.....

so this morning a repeat performance in time and ride, i felt much stronger, but still looked old. here i am holding my bike up after the ride doing a victory dance. i think i made it all the way around the block without walking once.

lots of kool stuff come by my view at work. here is the surly larry 3.8 pugsley snow tire.

proof that it is a surly
hey its a "larry"
more importantly that the knobs are much larger than the surly endomorph 3.8 and they are arranged in a more straight line to improve sideslip traction. the weight is similar to the endomorph but with more traction.

comes in a 27 tpi and and 127 tpi. the side walls seem supple, but had a little crackle to them like the rubber was not completely glued to the strands.

i will eventually get some and give you a full report on them.
