Suspension Manufacturers Introduce Metric Shock Sizing
@Golden-G: When they first started the spaceflight program it was considered an offshoot of the aviation industry, and still to this day most flight traffic control is done in standard. The Apollo 11 control computer displayed and accepted standard units, and the astronauts received their burn information in standard units. It wasn't until the 80's and 90's when NASA started making the changes, and they only recently made the official switch in 2007 to better co-operate with the ESA joint effort to return to the moon. Yes, it does make better sense to use the metric system, and I deal with it every day. But to say that standard units of measure are incapable of any good is kinda silly. Besides, the US and Canada can thank our previous British overlords for developing the standard system of measure and spreading it around. Edit: and if you want to see where I got my information, or just want to read up on how the Lunar control computer was built and work feel free to read this: http://www.doneyles.com/LM/Tales.html

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Prepared For a Medical Emergency?
Trust me, your opinions of what is properly prepared change after you get thrust into a emergency situation. Back this summer I was doing an out at back ride on Skookum Flats in Greenwater,WA which is a pretty remote trail. After I finished lunch and headed back to the trailhead to make the return trip, I ran into SAR(search and rescue) hustling a gurney up the trail. I had first aid and search and rescue training through Boy Scouts, and figured if they were bringing a roller gurney that it was serious. So I asked the situation and if there was anything I could carry in my pack since I would get to the scene faster. They told me they had an older male with no pulse or breath, and they gave me a ball mask and a couple other things to hustle up the trail. Once I get to the scene I get my pack emptied as fast as possible and immediately join the first responders in CPR. We did the best we could for about an hour and a half, and managed to avoid lividity for about an hour and a half before the ER doctor called it over the Sat phone. The best preparation is to not only plan on how to be able to treat minor cuts and scrapes, but anytime your going out i the backcountry, making sure you prepare for the worst and have the basics to try and keep someone as stable as possible until help can arrive. I will always carry the basic first aid along with CPR supplies and the skills to preform it. Trust me, the best consultation you can have after being in such a situation is knowing you did all you could to try and save someones life.

Good thing John Oliver plays on HBO not comedy central. And if you fact check his work, it is all accurate...
