BSNYC Friday 2015 Final Examination!



Well, that's it, after today's post the store is closed for the holidays, and I'll see you back here on Monday, January 4th, 2016 with regular updates.

(Though between now and then you should probably also expect a post from me on The Brooks Blog, and I'll post a notice here when that happens.)

Hey, if it were up to me I'd keep blogging straight through.  However, if I don't give the staff a break they start getting sloppy.  Especailly with the poorfreading.

As for 2016, you can rest assured it's brimming with promise like Mario Cipollini's bib shorts.  Not only will I be foisting another book upon the world, but I hear they're also going to be running another one of these "Tour de France" things.  (I guess the concept's catching on.)  Plus it's an election year, which means as always I'll be filling out a Canadian Citizen Application Form and keeping it ready just in case:


Maybe I'll even get to ride with the Head Fred himself:


In the meantime, I'm pleased to present you with a sweeping year-end final examination featuring one question for each month of 2015.  As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer.  If you're right you'll know it, and if you're wrong you won't get into a good school and your future will be ruined--and also you'll see Christmas.

As always, thanks for reading.  I've been blogging since the late 1800s, and your continued presence means a great deal to me--indeed I'm almost as fortunate to have you as you are to have me.  (But not quite.)  Enjoy the holidays, ride safe, and good luck on the exam, for your entire academic life depends on it.

See you back here on January 4th, 2016.

95. It is said that we live in a free society because we have a certain number of constitutionally guaranteed rights. But these are not as important as they seem. The degree of personal freedom that exists in a society is determined more by the economic and technological structure of the society than by its laws or its form of government. [16] Most of the Indian nations of New England were monarchies, and many of the cities of the Italian Renaissance were controlled by dictators. But in reading about these societies one gets the impression that they allowed far more personal freedom than our society does. In part this was because they lacked efficient mechanisms for enforcing the ruler’s will: There were no modern, well-organized police forces, no rapid long-distance communications, no surveillance cameras, no dossiers of information about the lives of average citizens. Hence it was relatively easy to evade control.

I'm gonna be a doctor, cause it's the only profession where my lousy cursory script won't get me fired. Besides, we need more doctors up here. Seriously. My doctor, who is the best sports medicine specialist in the land just suffered a pulmonary embolism and complianed to me about the treatment he received in our hospitals. He was commiserating, bless his heart, and asking me how I manage my many hospital visits as he injected my spine multiple times. He's taking six weeks off and then will come back part time to see a few of his patients (the wierdos like me.) If you could see the rest of his patients, you'd get in for sure, Snobi Wan. Aw hell, we'll take you in any event. Our new Head Fred is a bit of alright. Few friends of mine met him yesterday at City Hall... took some selfies, as you do.

Sigh... two weeks! We'll miss you, snobberdooderdoo. Guess I'll have to get off my arse and do a little blogging of my own, what with all of the extra time on my hands. Happy Christmas to you and yours.

The Christmas video contains what is very close to my first bikecycle. The blue Schwinn with the blue and white fenders - except mine had chrome fenders and 20" wheels. At some point, I ditched the fenders and chain guard and put BMX bars on it. FrankenKludge. Later, I got a Schwinn BMX bike that weighed 43 lbs.

Is that photo really Trudeau, because it looks like that ass-grabbing pro?

That Victoria couple is really in there only little world, huh? Good for them. There are worse people out there.

I am glad I am not the only pervert who makes assumptions about people's sex lives. If I had to guess, the P.T. Victorian couple, the woman wears the pants. Pegging, humiliation, cuckolding, that kinda thing.

Port Townsend is not a bad place to spend 2 hours while waiting for a ferry. Beyond that, it would drive you nuts. Inhabited entirely by retirees. They do have a pretty good skatepark, tho. Pizzaria claims NY style, is extremely popular and near inedible.

Pathetic Old Cyclist said...

CJ,

If you pulled your head up from your mommy's teat, you would be aware that there are several permutations of the names of Santa's reindeer. Seems the most changeable are Dunder ( Donder, Donner) and Blixem ( Blixen and Blitzen ). According to Snopes, the Donner version is more a product of the 1949 song and 1964 children's classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. It would seem you're unaware of any tradition that predates your existence.

http://www.snopes.com/holidays/christmas/donner.asp

Have a great holiday and do try to get out of mom's basement during the next couple of weeks.

CommieCanuck said...

Babs.. you do realize that kinky sex in the Victorian era was either taking a woman for a canoe trip (not a euphemism for anything) or riding a velocipide?
If they had the internet in Victorian times, they would have domains like XXXCanoe.com and have underground sketches of woman's ankles. Repression ruled society, men's scrotums were known to just explode randomly, hence trusses were worn at all times.

Okay..WTF the image verify thing wants me to pick all pictures that have grass but some guy is smoking and I have no idea if it's weed.

CommieCanuck said...

ok, it was weed.

dop said...

I think Donner was one of the reindeer trapped in a snowstorm in the Sierra Nevada. They were starving and ate Rudolph's carcass one foggy Christmas eve. The story became part of a larger American legend. It was sanitized in the 1949 song, much as Grimm's Fairy Tales were given happy endings & Shakespeare was Bowdlerized.

Babble: you hit the nail on the head about Victoria. I can't speak for Port Townsend, but Port Angeles is surprisingly good too, with a little unbuttoning.

Given all the newly granted spare reading time over the next two weeks, I'm boning up on recent helmet literature, since I can't only cite this blog when the issue comes up (City Council meetings, etc...). Here's a nice depressing one from some surgeons in Motor City:

"The Vicious Cycle: Pediatric Facial Trauma from Bicycling"
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26631380

Better news from Canada where some public health folks from UT and UBC find that mode share is much more important than helmet legislation in lowering hospitalisations:

sex tips for husbands and wives from 1894:

THE wise bride will permit a maximum of two brief sexual experiences weekly — and as time goes by she should make every effort to reduce this frequency. Feigned illness, sleepiness and headaches are among her best friends in this matter.

A SELFISH and sensual husband can easily take advantage of his wife. One cardinal rule of marriage should never be forgotten: Give little, give seldom and above all give grudgingly. Otherwise what could have been a proper marriage could become an orgy of sexual lust.

IF he attempts to kiss her on the lips she should turn her head slightly so that the kiss falls harmlessly on her cheek instead. If he lifts her gown and attempts to kiss her any place else she should quickly pull the gown back in place, spring from the bed, and announce that nature calls her to the toilet.

ARGUMENTS, nagging, scolding and bickering prove very effective if used in the late evening about an hour before the husband would normally commence his seduction.

Most men are by nature rather perverted, and if given half a chance, would engage in quite a variety of the most revolting practices. These practices include, among others, performing the normal act in abnormal positions; mouthing the female body; and offering their own vile bodies to be mouthed in turn.

It occurs to me that if I were married in 1894, then my wife and I would probably be dead by now, which makes being a pervert with her pretty fucking gross.

"Now a whole new strain of E coli at Midwestern Chipotle!"

Yes, but it is free range, sustainable harvested E coli.

Roille Figners said...

Extrapolating from present trends (always a good idea and logically flawless), this world is coming to be a place where shit and food mingle freely and eventually become the same thing, i.e. there is a single word for both, and we eat it AND shit it -- except eating and shitting are ALSO the same thing, other than the direction of travel in or out of the body, so those new words will probably be prefixed such as Einscheiß and Außerscheiß.

Oh maaaan! Still haven't written a thing. But I DID figure out how to make the perfect macaron. Turns out all of the pros cheat, so it looks as if bakers and bikers have something in common after all!!

All of the recipes say that you should separate the eggs, cover the whites with paper towel and leave them in the fridge for three to five days, but it's better to buy the whites in a little carton AND buy the (never mentioned!!) dried egg whites (also called powdered albumen,) too. So if a recipe calls for 100 grams of egg whites, use 85 ish of wet and 15 of dry and they'll work every time. Mmmmm tasty.

Happy Christmas, peeps! :) xo xo
