What Ever Happened to Super T? - Video
@PHeller: That's not what you just said. Literally what you said was that he only cares about being on camera and that it was a shame that he doesn't love mountain biking as much as you. I don't know Super T nor was I into the scene back then, so I'm not taking anything personally. However, personally, I would like to see you walk back your dipshit, holier than thou take on this video. Personally, I think you must have a really fragile ego if you listen to this interview and fell the need to express how pure your love of mountain biking is, yet say it's someone else who needs validation.

What Ever Happened to Super T? - Video
@PHeller: You're the only one saying short term passion (really you basically said no passion in your first comment.) Whether or not he rides a bike at all anymore is completely irrelevant to any point, especially some stupid comparison of if he ever had the true love like pheller. You're the guy who asked about building a rig to cheat learning how to manual, and you're here talking about how it's all about the love of riding and not trying to look cool?

What Ever Happened to Super T? - Video
I must have been watching a different video than you in that I wasn't able to psycho-analyze him from that interview and draw those conclusions about his motivations. The idea that anyone who has risen to the top in anything could possibly not be passionate about that thing is by and large only espoused by dilettantes who will always be irrelevant even in the things they're so passionate about. You identify with four guys who got lucky and were able to make solid careers from bikes? Sure you do. If you ignored everything he said about sponsorships and the expectation to live like a rock star while being paid like a peasant, and only took away the idea that the early freeride scene was some filter to rid of the guys who didn't really love the bike, you are an idiot.

Does he say "Eagle" more or "going away from the norm"?

Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
@dthomp325: Stop talking about wheelchairs. There is nothing prohibiting wheelchairs, even motorized wheelchairs, in wilderness areas. You're talking pretty definitively about what this bill is and what its results will and will not be which seems strange considering you're either ignoring or are just unaware of facts.

Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
@SJP: you asked if it would make a difference, which I understood as a difference in my immediate suspicion of the bill, as that was the topic at hand. You did not ask if it would change my opposition, and it would not. The only change to wilderness regulations I would support is tightening them by banning horses. This is one bill so you're stretching it pretty far to imply that anyone suspicious of it because of its proponents is the problem with politics. Will you feel better if I tell you that when I vote I vote for at least one republican just so I don't appear partisan? I realize that lots of mountain bikers will support this bill, and I think that's selfish. I realize that many people will say who proposed the bill doesn't matter, and I think that's incredible folly. I think many of you are using one of those to justify the other. I don't think it's a "slippery slope", I think it's a precisely placed wedge.

Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
@SJP: You're playing word games. Why would you say it allows more people to experience wilderness when what you mean is that it will allow mountain bikers to experience wilderness more? Yes, it would make a difference if the bill was introduced by anyone who didn't have a history of trying to erode federal protection of public lands. I'm sure you'll have something to say about that, but it's irrelevant because whether or not it's all partisanship or grandstanding, it hasn't happened.

Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
@SJP: They have a lot do with it as they are the writer and major supporter of this bill. Unless you consider your bike a person, allowing bikes in wilderness does not allow more people to experience the wilderness.

@Kitejumping: You should cling to that red herring until your last breath. Never let go. The rest of us can have a grown up discussion.
