 If I have to watch two ads during this video at least one should include running fails......

 A few questions for y'all:

1. Should you ask "are you OK?" while the person is still, literally crashing? Like, their head still hasn't made final contact with the rock/tree/ground and their riding partner is inquiring about long-term health outcomes?

2. What's the expectation of advice like "slow down!" when the person is already obviously out of control and in the act of crashing? Should you immediately follow up with #1 above?

3. If you crash doing something really weak and stupid, and it was self-filmed, do you (a) immedaitely delete the clip and pretend it never happened, or (b) try and get it included in a widely-viewed forum like Friday Fails?

4. If we observe a bad outcome from (a) an e-biker doing something stupid, or (b) anyone with those god-damn bear bells on their bike, is it deemed "a fail", or more accurately "karma"?

 Def Karma. I watched an eMTB rider pass me just before a big mud puddle and see hem crash out of control face first into the mud pool. Hehe. "you okay?".

 The difference between Black Bear shit and Grizzly shit is that Grizzly shit has little bells in it.

 I'm wearing the exact same pair of brown birkenstocks right now and it was creepy seeing the ad. Are they watching me?

 @TEAM-ROBOT: The Birkenstock marketing department prefers the term "Enhanced user lifestyle monitoring" to watching you. But just relax this is for the good of the company, you need not be alarmed.

 @mooreoutdoors: You must acquire a pair of BirkenstockSPD sandals.
They are far-out.....
  • 2 0
 @TEAM-ROBOT: no, your individuality is just actually a hallucination. you are only a marketing segment defined by age, sex, gender, location, income bracket, and vague array of interests.

what you buy is already known because they are the ones who manufactured the demand in the first place.

 vertical vids take marginally more effort to scroll past on phones, thereby increasing possible exposure unfortunate but that's the main driver

 @JWadd: Yes sorry knee jerk reaction as I thought he was badly hurt. As it turns out full body armor is a worthwhile investment and he managed to continue the ride!

 Fear & panic - there was no thinking.
