There was definitly a certain irony about reading that blog post yesterday, and my interest to bring it here. When I think of these non-geology types that dress this way I am forced to think of places like Boulder and Bozeman, for example.  

Rob And she uses the word signifies, which means giving the meaning of something. The sari obviously has an emotional attachment for her.

Exactly. As an American living in the UK for the sixth straight year, I was thinking exactly this, Tessa!

My electric bill is $480 every 90 days. Yes, using the dryer is expensive so we don t use it much. We use it for the sock/jocks and big towls, everything else is line-dried inside. (Clothes-munching dog outside.)

Fifty years ago, on 18 March 1965, Soviet astronaut Alexei Leonov took the first space walk. Listen to Rob and Neil describing the struggles of that ground-breaking space mission whilst explaining some related vocabulary.

We elected to go for sunset because we are staying in Kapalua and did not want to get up at 2am for sunrise. We spent the day visiting other local attractions and headed up about 3pm. It was very cloudy and rainy going up and we had our doubts about if it was worth the trip. We had downloaded the Gypsy App for Haleakala which is a guided audio tour and it reassured us that the weather would be different at the top and it was! Sunny and clear, although the temp went from 80 down to 63 degrees at the top. The Visitors Center at the base is under construction and the one at the top is open from 10-3:30. There are restrooms at the summit. There are many switch backs and driving can be nerve racking but definitely worth the views.  

James Reinhart spent months trying to get somebody, anybody, to invest in his idea: an online clothing exchange for women and kids.

I absolutely love it! Stereotypes are fantastic. I often wonder if this blog is written by someone living in Evanston, IL. I really look forward to reading it. Keep it up.

This is definitely an American thing. You can always spot the americans because of the North Face jackets and the outdoor wear!

Ageing, he thought, comes about because this developmental programme, this constant change, never turns off. From birth until puberty, change is crucial: we need it to grow and mature. After we ve matured, however, our adult bodies don t need change, but rather maintenance. If you ve built the perfect house, you would want to stop adding bricks at a certain point, Walker says. When you ve built a perfect body, you d want to stop screwing around with it. But that s not how evolution works. Because natural selection cannot influence traits that show up after we have passed on our genes, we never evolved a stop switch for development, Walker says. So we keep adding bricks to the house. At first this doesn t cause much damage a sagging roof here, a broken window there. But eventually the foundation can t sustain the additions, and the house topples. This, Walker says, is ageing.

 
A lot of North Face stuff is made in Sri Lanka that has one of the worst human rights records on the planet.  

I agree with Tina. I would think that line drying vs. electric drying would not be enough to cause World War III on Jillee s very eye opening post. It s true that it saves a lot of money when you line dry clothing, but it is not always possible. Please think about things before you type/say them.

De Magalhaes and Gladyshev are under no illusions about the arduous journey but they remain hopeful. History is full of claims by experts that certain advances are impossible, only to be proven wrong soon after, says de Magalhaes. Consider the state of medicine just 120 years ago, when some of today s bowhead whales were still in their infancy. Back then life-threatening infections were just a fact of life. Today, antibiotics are taken for granted as the most basic healthcare.

To each his (or her) own. Everyone has his or her own preferences. Personally, I use a clothesline much of the time in summer, but often toss those clothes into the dryer just to fluff them. Oh, that tends to get the beetles out, too. No fun finding a beetle in your undies.

 
You'll never have to hem and haw about whether something will be useful later, whether you should keep it because it's a 'good shirt' or was expensive or any of that! Note that 'sparking joy' applies perfectly well to items that aren't exactly thrilling but that serve us well. For instance, the cotton camisole that doesn't rise up and is just the right length — that sure sparks joy for me! Socks without holes spark a lot more joy than socks with holes. You get the picture.

What about non-white people who wear technical clothing eh? I m 1/2 yellow and 1/2 white and I wear a ridiculous amount of technical clothing. Although I always want to go camping, I m not so stupid as to think my buddy s going to call an impromptu session of hiking and paddling. I for one wear technical clothing because I m a paranoid bastard. When those zombies come, you want to be hunkered down in a makeshift shanty dressed in cotton, that retains water and chills you when the temperature drops? I think I ll stick with my technical clothing. I may look like a douche, but damn yo, how many hipsters look like douches and are just gonna be eaten by zombies because they can t run in their drainpipe jeans? Sheeit yo, it ain t just white people wearing clothing that works, that in itself is degrading to people of other shades. What, because I m 1/2 Chinese I can t be (paranoia-fuelled) practical? C mon!!

Rob Well, you know your saris well because that is the right answer. Well done! Now, before we go, it's time to remind ourselves of some of the vocabulary that we've heard today. Will.  

Good for winter training. I bought the Solar Red colour bright orange really for cycling/running when it gets cold/dark.Nice size & shape. Slim fit, not big and baggy. Large size fits me perfectly. I m 6 1 / 12.5st 185cm / 80kg .Only loses 1 star because the description says its ready for whatever the weather brings . Its not, it will keep you warm but its not waterproof at all. Apart from the waterproof zips which seem a bit pointless if the rest of the material isn t waterproof! ... read more

That may sound alarming, but it has long been known that our bodies are really a mishmash of many different organisms. Microbes in your gut can produce neurotransmitters that alter your mood some scientists have even proposed that the microbes may sway your appetite , so that you crave their favourite food. An infection of a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii , meanwhile, might just lead you to your death. In nature, the microbe warps rats brains so that they are attracted to cats, which will then offer a cosy home for it to reproduce. But humans can be infected and subjected to the same kind of mind control too: the microbe seems to make someone risky, and increases the chance they will suffer from schizophrenia or suicidal depression. Currently, around a third of British meat carries this parasite, for instance despite the fact an infection could contribute to these mental illnesses. We should stop this, says Kramer.

I had NO idea about the North Face thing now that I read it yes LOADS of people wear them (not me) never struck me as good stuff. That being said I m from Seattle and live in Alaska. I do tend to live in jeans and or athletic wear BECAUSE IT IS SO COMFORTABLE! I have an office job where I do not interact with customers so I can look like a hobo if I choose to hair brushing is totally optional I often wear an Arc terycs jacket but my obsession with great outdoor gear is unsatiated seeking the perfect balance of wind and water repellency and ability to vent swet I snapped up a Norrona jacket with the largest pit zips I have ever seen. Scored it off Backcountry s outlet. I am a white person who does regularly escape into the woods with my Karilian bear dog after work and would rather live this way than any other way. Yes I have to keep watch for bears and moose but I saw a huge Great Horned Owl last week and it was spectacular to watch do its territorial call and be completely in charge of its domain. No matter what your skin tone rock your gear but earn it by putting it to good use!

Published as a postcard circa 1910, this sandalled strongman leaves nothing to chance in protecting his modesty, and wears a large paper leaf, thoroughly secured with plenty of string!

The impressively muscular Otto Olympier, his picture taken by an uncredited photographer and published as a postcard. Not intended to be sent home from a holiday as we mostly use them today, but for those who collected the cards as a hobby; images of strongmen and bodybuilders seem to have been a popular subject, judging by the amount which have survived to this day.

It has been an awfully long time since I shared a photograph of Ange Camilli, 1st prize winner in an early physical beauty contest (later to become the body building still with us today). Published - sadly all censored - as a set of postcards circa 1920, by Alfred Noyer of Paris.

Eugen Sandow, in a studio photography session for George Steckel, 1894 - his directions appear to have been along the lines of ‘look up; look gently happy’, for the other shot I have from the same series follows the precise same theme!

Not many of the old photographs I post here come with a contemporary caption built in; this one leaves me with little to add besides that is a very fine quiff, sir!

Images from this glorious set are often incorrectly dated to 1863, because of the AN Paris 63 in the lower right - but this refers to publisher Alfred Noyer and his numbered registration of patent on the set.
