@kubaner: The infinity of the decimal numbers is infinitely larger than the infinity of the counting numbers, but negative infinity and positive infinity are equal. I think
@drewstinky: The word is cardinality. The cardinality of the decimals is greater than the cardinality of the integers, though both sets are infinitely large. The cardinality of the rational numbers is the same as the cardinality of the integers, though.
@kubaner: Infinity is not a number, so you can't really add anything to it. If you could, there are two possibilities: -infinity + (a finite number) = (another finite number), in which case - infinity = (another finite number) - (a finite number), which doesn't make sense, or - infinity + (a finite number) = (plus or minus) infinity, in which case (a finite number) = (-1 + (plus or minus) 1) * infinity, which also doesn't make sense.
@WaterBear: I get what you're saying Negative infinity plus any finite number, regardless of how large, would still be negative infinity. Cool if you want to think about infinite items. Like space. Don't try to think about it. Because you can only think about it. No one can understand it. Really hard to think about. Especially if you're an atheist. But for PB sake I will say that negative infinity is negatively headed in the wrong direction if PB users want more. Best I can do after 11 beers
Seeing Semenuk race would be ultimately unfulfilling. All of the gratuitous air and steeze that makes him him... would be gone, because it all costs time. I love watching dh racing, but every rider I've ever seen is better showcased in a non racing edit.
@AllMountin: I appreciate both. Seeing racers finesse in hitting every corner and feature perfectly is something almost unreal. Adding that self confidence that was seen in Danny Hart during the Worlds is taking it even further
When two years ago or so they said Semenuk will do more filming instead of contests I was like Yeah, right, so what, there are so many bike movies out there... - But he throws one banger after the other, stunning skills! And stunning film making also, thank you Revel in the Chaos!
The guy can ride! The art level of the production is intense. Am I the only one who noticed the stark difference between the full growth and the clear cut section? Combined with the soundtrack this little edit makes a statement. It's there. It's not accidental. True art gets interpreted on an emotional and visceral level. This edit hits that bar. Brandon is easily one of the most talented riders out there, and he possesses depth to go with it. Still waters run deep.
Don't get me wrong Brandon is a wizard on a bike but I get a bit over the pretentious edits these days. Give me a loose rider and a handy cam over this any day!
Watched twice back to back, the norm for senenuk vids. That seat grab one footed can looks steezy as! signature semenuk trick who the f*ck else does that on a full dh bike?
Listening to the new Ash Borer before I see them tomorrow and looping this clipz. Like Pale Chalice titled their album: Negate the Infinite and Miraculous.
i agree, now dont get me wrong, i think that semenuk is a really cool guy and an insane rider but im not a big fan of his edits as i dont believe they portray what mountain biking is all about; having a laugh with ya mates one-upping each other not going to your grandmas funeral like this one. yea the riding is good but cmon negative infinity wtf does that even mean!! sorry for the rant but it had to be said
@wesfife155: your comment came off in a way that just made you look dumb but i kind of agree. I love the shots and riding but the horror film style kinda ruins the vibe for me.
@adrennan: no what I'm saying is semenuk-level of banger..like the whip to tailwhip in the foggy raw 100 or the world firsts in his latest releases.. that was super sick but it still feels like a mellow move from a guy like him!
Ok, he is good, I get that. But what's the point on gay comments? Strawberry chocolate? Blue Balls? Semenuk so hot? What's wrong with these guys? Can't you just enjoy the video? Keep your pants on, boys!
Ok he is good, I get that. But what's the point with comments like "strawberry chocolate", "blue balls" or "semenuk is soooo hot"? What's wrong with these guys? Can't you just watch and enjoy the video without imagining the guy with nothing but his underpants with blue balls and chocolate etc?
Say what you will. But as beautiful as the cinematography was and as smooth as the riding, these brief teaser style edits are just stupid and I am sick of the weird xfiles vibe. Quit dangling that carrot and give us the real goods.
1-2 minute videos every month or so is better than a 5min vid every year in my eyes. This series allows the viewer to maintain a constant boner throughout the year and even into the off season. The dark vibe is perfect for Rupert walkers filming style and semenuks mysterious nature. Roll on the next episode...

Been watching old Horizons on BBC I-Player?

Ah, math.
