Look, kid. I don't know who you are or what kind of riding you do, but I'm not one to back away from a challenge -- or from danger. You see those professional freeriders hucking backies off 30 foot cliffs on gravity rigs? Yeah, I'm one of those guys. Or the guys riding 100kph in a peloton only centimeters away from other riders, where the slightest mishap would send them flying onto the pavement -- or worse, off the cliff that the road is running alongside? Yeah, I'm one of those guys too. I'm a 3-time downhill world champion and a 5-time Tour De France...

I just posted in the old thread, but a bike this nice should be seen twice.

Hey /n/. Before I try to jump into an aviation career and get disappointed, I was wondering if my shitty eyes are anywhere close to the FAA's Class 1 vision requirements, and if I don't if there's anything I can do about it, like Lasik. I'm gonna have another checkup in a week, but here are my last exam's results, whatever the fuck they mean.

Spherical -3.50 and -2.50
Cylindrical -0.75 in both
Axis 020 and 013

I'm pretty sure that -3.50 is off limits, so I'm probably gonna have to get Lasik either way.

I've read somewhere that the only pilot career where they actually care about the status of your vision is military pilots.

I just baught a used bike, which is in a pretty decent condition except for one problem, which I didn't notice being a noob, the front derailleur is stuck in the second/middle gear. What I want to know is how bad is this given that the back works fine? I am aware that it could be a simple problem that can be fixed with cable change or slight adjustment of the derailleur, but worse case senario, what if I do need to change it how much is it going to cost, and is it urgent, can i just use my bicycle at middle gear and shift back gears higher for incline and lower for decline?...

Don't do it, even "like-new" bicycles lose half of their market value as soon as they leave the store, and that bike was maybe only worth that or less brand new.... because it's a shiny piece of crap

The latter. You could get the same bike brand new at Walmart for half that, and with warranty. But you shouldn't get either as they're shitty bikes.

Ski mask, ski helmet, winter boots with oxygen activated foot warmers. The rest is not that specific.

pretty much that but different brands, without the mask.

trouble is there's a fine line between keeping warm and over heating and often it's best to put with a bit of cold in beginning until the body temp warms up.

It seems like there's a general agreement that the "first generation" of diesel-electric locomotives consists of the original diesels that replaced steam engines in the 1930s-1950s while the "second generation" consists of the boxy-looking types (pic related is a classic example) that started showing up in the 1960s to replace the first generation.

After that, it starts to get murky.

How do you define the "generations" of diesels, and where do you think we are now?
