lohphat: sigdiamond2000:Drinking a cold bottle of water from my fridge and chucking the bottle in the recycling bin rather than grabbing a glass and filling it with not-cold water (and then washing it out when I'm done) is worth $3.99 to me.I'm paying (minimally) for the convenience. I'm not paying for the water.Your tap water has quality standards, bottled water has none.I can see using a filter for hard water but the economics of using fossils fuels to produce the plastic container and burned for the transport of a product that comes out of your tap for fractions of pennies a gallon is institutional stupidity.Use a filtered carafe for the fridge and reuse the water glass. You don't have to rinse it between glasses the same day.
MasterPlanz: Also, I am so old I am not entirely certain what 'hipster' means.
big pig peaches: If there was no evolutionary advantage we wouldn't be able to do it.http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persistence_hunting
stuhayes2010: I like running in these. I can't run as fast because of lack of cushioning, but I do feel that I use more leg muscles and the run feels more "natural" or fluid. I guess I am smug or a hipster or something.[www.northwestmilitary.com image 483x304]/jogs with regular shoes too.
Rapmaster2000: I didn't know that people gave a shiat about barefoot runners. Like they actually sit in their car at a stoplight and upon seeing a guy with no shoes on think to themselves "Look at that guy with no shoes! He thinks he's so great."These people need a hobby... or maybe a blow job.
Rustico: My experience is simple: ran using traditional padded shoes (fitted at renowned running stores) and developed problems with my legs; ran using minimalist shoes (Vibrams) and mid-strike and leg problems went away.
AverageAmericanGuy: Good luck with your hookworms, hipsters!
