Interesting Contrast

--Don't read too much into it; I don't care what folks wear as long as they don't scare the horses.

That said: On the one hand, we have U. S. Winter Olympians competing in uniforms specifically designed to minimize drag. On the other hand, U.S. Olympic athlete Johnny Weir.

Further, deponent sayeth not.

I was wrong.

Even Jackson never wore heels in public (I think).

Johnny Weir(d)

I guess it is your turn tonight to nearly cause me to blow chicken sammich on my keyboard.

Good thing he isn't into speed skating, we'd have to put a tree with three yellow lights and a green one at the start of the track.

Nice banner, too.

One of these days, his inner Nelly is going to chew its way to the surface and run shrieking around the room. It'll be like that scene from Alien, but with less blood and more sequins.

Truly, I am but an amateur in the company of professionals :)

I may never look at an L/D curve the same ever again.
