Tumbling Down the Trail: Opinion
@WAKIdesigns: Apparantly you can not cancel your account. Probably should have looked in to that before declaring. Anyone? Little help here. Do I have to get myself banned? Because I could probably pull that off.

Tumbling Down the Trail: Opinion
@WAKIdesigns: fair enough. I will admit I got a bit lost in anger in my original comment and lost my point. That's sad to hear that in your particular line of work there is no reward for loyalty and ethics. Sounds like work wise you chose a path of "bigger" reward which always comes with bigger risk. The parallels to biking are sort of ironic. Provide more for your family, but risk providing nothing when you are replaced. I don't believe anyone has job security in this day and age but you can earn respect in you respective field. My job lets me enjoy my life without taking the pressures of the job home too much. I start very early in the morning and could basically ride my bike almost every day if I wanted to. So basically, I am going to log out right now and cancel my account so that I am not even tempted to get involved in this circus ever again. I have been reading this comment section for years and years and managed not to get involved. I am not sure what happened this time. It's not that I don't have the time, I am just going to back to riding my bike which is why I am on this website in the first place.

Tumbling Down the Trail: Opinion
@fartymarty: I understand what you are saying. I am not an advocate of pushing limits and being hardcore. I ride within my boundaries, that I have taken many years to figure out. Like anyone I have desires to go above my skill level occasionally and if the situation feels right, that's great. I have been teaching my girlfriend for a few years now and I actually think I hold her back due to my experience in the field. A lot of my riding buddies have kids and I see their priorities change, I get it. Some people can't have kids, does that make them a lesser human? Are they missing out on life? It's all perspective. The irony of this is when I (myself and nobody else) broke both wrists I had to cover people at work who constantly couldn't come to work because of their respective children. I wouldn't dare ask them to do the same for me because of my injury. Ownership. Anyways, I am going to go back to reading rather than commenting. My bone was never with you, it was Waki. I hate the way he talks down to people.

@fartymarty: Are you saying that your children make you more important? Did you not read my comment? Own up to your decisions. Even if that is the choice to have kids. I went to work out of consideration for my coworkers who shouldn't be affected by my choices. Just like your children.
