Hard to believe, but during my commute on the train into work this AM, NPR spent almost 5 minutes on NASCAR. 

I really can't fathom any intelligent person giving two flying sh!ts about a non-sport that is so asinine and detrimental to society as a whole.

He wasn't really gone. every now and again I'd check his user ID, and find that he'd been logging in and lurking.

Plenty of people think risking our necks out on the cliffs for fun is stupid.

Yes, England almost got rid of the Web, but I convinced Winston Churchill to keep it.

Climbing maybe a stupid risk, but nascar is absurd. nascar is like me driving from boston to conway but with no climbing at the end, no change of scenery, actually no scenery, and a bunch of drunk people watching it happen. sometimes its nice to complain about something unimportant. I can't stand nascar and what it demonstrates about the average american's willingness to settle for something of a lower quality, like McDonalds, Walmart bikes, and the majority of music being played. If you try candy from the UK you will realize that even our candy is crappier! The reason is that we are lazy and willing to settle for crap.
Ahhh that felt good. I'm going to go have a milkyway

Drive fast, turn left. Not much of a sport, much less of a reason for spectating. Sufficient excuse to sit on your arse all day and drink beer, I guess.

Well, at least you guys are open minded and tolerant of others. Oh, wait a minute....  ::)

I find it hysterically funny that climbers get their panties all in a twist when somebody with no understanding or experience in the sport dismisses it as "reckless" or says it "shouldn't be allowed because it's stupid," etc - yet then are perfectly willing to make their own blissfully ignorant judgement about other folks lifestyles and passions.

Intolerant people should all die in a grease fire, imo.  :-*

Does that mean it's uncool to play Need for Speed Carbon on the Wii?

I just telecommute so I have to simulate my drive  ;D

I wonder if there's Wii climbing, then I can improve my climbing the way I've improved my bowling!!!!!!

Seriously, switch to another station or turn your iPod up louder to drown it out.
Being able to tune stuff out, like actually not even hear it, by thinking/reading/looking at something else I feel your pain (not).  It's a good thing to work at developing a cone of silence if you have to be on a train on a regular basis.
