BingoBoingo: of course
mircea_popescu: gotta rename all the things.

pete_dushenski: so i tried a wall sit for the first time in, like, 5 years last night.
pete_dushenski: i don't remember being able to do much more than a minute-thirty back then, but i figure, hey, let's give this another shot
pete_dushenski: next thing i know, five minutes and ten seconds have elapsed, and i'm collapsed on the floor, writhing in discomfort but strangely satisfied
pete_dushenski: i impress me !
mod6: back in the day coach used to make us do those for punishment.
pete_dushenski: sounds about right
mod6: after about ~1 minute your legs feel like they're going to burst into flames.
pete_dushenski: i mentally associate wall sits with beep tests and the like
pete_dushenski: mod6: what sport were you playing back in the day ?
mod6: hockey
mod6: from about 4 to 18
pete_dushenski was freak child who DIDN'T grow up playing organised hockey in alberta
mod6: i still feel like im better on skates than on regular shoes sometimes
mod6: i got a buddy who played for calgary a while back. maybe 10 years.
pete_dushenski: well next annual general meeting we'll bring our skates, find a rink, and lace-up !
mod6: i like canadian style hockey.
mod6: pete_dushenski: ha, that'd be awesome.
pete_dushenski can still skate quite well

shinohai: The bane of Southern living is having to play street hockey on rollerblades, so that's all I know.
mod6: every now and then i go to open-skate just to `think & clear my mind' type of thing. every now and then guys try to get me to join mens league but I just don't have the extra time.
pete_dushenski: mod6: do you tell them you're co-chair of the terrorist software league ?
mod6: i played in one in tucson, but most guys couldn't play very well, and I had a hard time adjusting to no-contact.
mod6: pff. "hey, im mod6 yoh!"
pete_dushenski: "prove it !" they say
pete_dushenski: this is like claiming you're spiderman

mod6: i always liked it. most guys in the US can't deal though -- here most kids are taught the physical game but more emphisis is put on skating and puck handling.
pete_dushenski: mod6: hockey in canada is definitely where the 'men' congregate, sort of how i imagine the culture around american football is, but for upper-middle-class white kids
pete_dushenski: if that's not a parallel stretched too far
mod6: yeah, in the US ``men'' play/watch football mostly. i think for one thing its readily accessable; it's inexpensive to play. all you gotta do is buy shoes and show up. the rest is pretty much provided by the team.
pete_dushenski: though the hockey bois here still do the cum-cracker thing, and the like, which boggles my mind, but i suppose it isn't that different than the primal pickle nignogs
assbot: O Brother Where Art Thou? | Contravex: A blog by Pete Dushenski ... ( )
mod6: hockey is very expensive. much higher barrier of entry.
pete_dushenski: mod6: big time. not many kids who make it to 'the show' have anything less that white-collar professional parents
mod6: haha, i never saw any wild stuff like that in all of our hockey travels. except for some typical locker-room boxing and pranks, etc.
pete_dushenski: eg. jerome iginla, whose dad is a lawyer here
mod6: ah.
mod6: yeah, ice time is expensive. but it does help if you live in an area where you can get free outdoor ice time.
mod6: i think the rink near where i live is like $300/hr
mod6: this year it hasn't been cold enough to have outdoor ice yet. we just got our first snow yesterday. was like ~5 inches.
mod6: which sucks for me, because that pretty much means the end of pheasant season.
mod6: i shot 8 birds last weekend. so ended the season on a high note.
pete_dushenski: lol when i saw 'shot 8 birds' i immediately thought golf, and was mi-hi-hightily impressed
pete_dushenski: brown christmas is lame though, we had a perfectly timed cold-snap. -20C all last week. bizarrely, JUST what i wanted for this time of year.

mod6: i've got 50+ in the freezer.
shinohai was hoping it was "shot 8 cops", leaves disappointed
mod6: i had probably 65-70 last year.
mircea_popescu: are the pheasants there grouse sized or something ?
mod6: they're bigger than grouse. bout the same size as a chicken, maybe a bit bigger.
pete_dushenski: shinohai: terrorist !
mircea_popescu: ah. ro pheasants are kinda turkey-sized
mod6: i cook three of 'em at a time. we eat 'em quite a bit.
mod6: last year i probably gave away like 10.
mircea_popescu: so you know... 50 birds is like 500lbs of meat, easy

mircea_popescu: is the hen legal too, there ? or just rooster ?
mod6: Most ones we see are "Mongolian ringneck"s
mod6: yeah, hens too. at least here.
mod6: i suppose each place has different laws.
mircea_popescu: easy enough way to protect the population, if it has any wildlife habitat. make hunt rooster-only for a while.
mod6: yeah. there used to be a lot more wild birds here in minnesota, so say the old timers. but the land development and introduction of a lot more nest-feeding animals like skunks, coyote, wolves and foxes have shrank the population.
mircea_popescu: yeah foxes are a problem. can't really have lotta fox and lotta turkey/pheasant/grouse in the same place.
mod6: south dakota still has a lot from what I hear. i've never hunted there yet. but i hear that you'll see like 100 birds get up at a single time. so many, it's hard to actually pick a target.
mod6: yeah. sometime, i wanna try turkey hunting.
mod6: gotta walk a lot though, from what i'm told.
mircea_popescu: euro turkeys are kinda midgety. from what i hear us and canada have some real huge ones.
mircea_popescu: well that's the point of hunting innit ? exercise the dogs.
mod6: yeah. totally. and yes, they do have some pretty big turkeys here.
mircea_popescu: "you're not a real man for as long as you get outwalked by a dog"
mod6: the dogs always amaze me. they just don't stop. even with broken toe-nails, or iced over paws, they just keep on going.
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: sure, who isn't
mod6: i'd say, that's probably one of the best parts of hunting for me; watching the dogs work.

BingoBoingo: mod6: Actually the right levees breaking could make this less bad in places. A few years ago they blew up some levees on the podunk farm Missouri side to save Cairo, Illinois
BingoBoingo: But that flood was snowpack melt, so plenty of warning
mod6: ah. huh.
BingoBoingo: Some levees are only there because it is nice not to flood farm fields, so those ones get sacrified from time to time. The Levees protecting the fucking ghetto never get intentionally blown by USG.
