Read through these posts and it should be clear how I got confused. I may not be good at math, and sometimes my comprehension may leave a bit to be desired, but I think it is clear that Dave lead me astray but his post, the first quoted here.

Dave said:



Pretty sure "kms" is kilometers, and 100 doesn't look like 160.

So when Mark related his journey, my response was thus.



So then I went back through the thread, and sure enough, Mark said he was going to be riding 160kms.

So I made yet another post, feeling like a dope.




And of course there could have been only one conclusion to be drawn from Dave's misleading comment.




But Dave wasn't finished.



I think it is because he works the graveyard shift, and is sleep deprived. I worked the graveyard shift once, and I know that getting adequate sleep is near impossible, and once one gains a sizable sleep deficit, well, all I can say is there aren't any drugs or alcohol that will produce the state of euphoria that lack of sleep does.




Yes, Mark, even with my poor math skills, I know that much.



Mark's math was flawless.

This all started with Dave.






Mark is a math whiz, man. A math whiz I say.

You youngun.


Dave?

Not so much.

Dave is confused from being upside down all the time.

Wow... things move fast in this thread. I've not read nor posted much in the forums today and there's 3+ pages of posts to read in here alone I have some catching up to do...

In the mean-time... A very slightly sad day for me - but only slightly...

For over a year now, Monty - one of our neighbours' cats - has spent most of his waking hours in our garden, relaxing in the flower-beds, chasing birds and leaves, and "managing the population" of our mice. He's also got to know Boo Boo, my own rescue cat who frequently goes in the garden attended, wearing a harness and long leash. Initially, Boo Boo didn't like him, but they gradually became friends of a sort. Then, a few months ago, Monty's brother - Jones - finally overcame his shyness and began visiting us daily, usually to eat Boo's left-overs from breakfast, lunch or dinner, and to enjoy a stroke and an occasional cuddle. Again, with some reluctance on Boo's behalf, they had become friends of a sort.

Well, yesterday there was a big van going to and from our neighbours' home... and now, the curtains are all shut, there's no car in the drive-way, no lights on in the house tonight, and no sign of Monty or Jones since yesterday afternoon. I'm not 100% certain, since we never knew those particular neighbours well enough to chat other than at the annual summer fair, but I feel sure they've moved away. And whenever Boo went out today, he sat by the garden gate for a few minutes, looking through it to see if his friends were nearby. In all honesty, my folks and I have been doing the same thing.

If our neighbours have indeed moved, we all of us shall miss both Monty and Jones. Lovely cats, both of them. Really lovely
What?

No visitation plan in this divorce?

I never!

Wow, I have not even been trying and 2 posts to go for another raffle ticket....yay!
I guess you didn't get the memo Charlie.

This is no place for discussion of the contest.



Try one of those other threads in the General Talk section, eh?

Just to be sure there isn't anything lost in the translation, once more, in French.

Je suppose que tu n'as pas reçu le mémo Charlie.

Ce n'est pas un endroit pour discuter du concours.



Essayez l’un des autres sujets de la section Conversation générale, hein?

Come to think of it I do rate woman by their nibble factor.
Me too.

I like to nibble, bite (lovingly of course), and tickle.

Women that is.

On a firearms site that I am a member of the wife of one of the members sees dead people. She sees them wherever they go. Just normal for her.
Well I would think that if she is a pistol packin' mamma she may see lots of dead people, that is if she is encountering people who are bent on her destruction.

Taupo Cycle Race this Saturday. 100 miles / 160km.

Bike's cleaned, serviced, new tyres and tubes.
I'm not feeling nearly prepared for it as I'm not sure I've trained enough. Time will tell. It hurts from the 100km mark to the end anyway, it's just a question of how much hurt.
Well this is the offending post....72452....5 days ago......have we been going 5 days on this and Mark never said how he went


Yes I got it wrong I only read the 100 before the slashy thing and wrongly called them kms


I told you the coffee hadn't kicked in yet.....

Happy


Dave

I'm mostly better, but Mrs Bob is sleeping in the spare bedroom tonight due to my coughing spells last night.
Can't say I blame her.

Slow Dave, slow. Or rather, very quick for the first 80km, a little slower for the next 40km, and very slow for the last 40. Got my electrolytes mix wrong and ended up with bad cramps in the rectus femoris and vastus medialis muscles.

Camel Plains Bob. 9 out of 10 doctors can't be wrong.

Jokes aside - I hope you're better soon.
