    I went on TikTok for the first time and I was extremely impressed at how much engagement there is. Really small nothing profiles and posts get fucktonnes of engagement. It reminds me of when Instagram wasn't total dogshit and there was actual reason to use it outside of following hot people. I still don't know why they did that with the algorithim.

    Okay.

    Uhive might be worth checking out if you like engagement. New app with quite a bit so far that I've experienced.

    Rumors of a black director for the next Superman leads me to believe black Superman (or maybe black lex) is in the works. I just wish they would do Steel right. It got me to thinking about race swapping characters and how weird it can be when done for the wrong reasons. I think a white WarMachine would be the most pointless thing someone could ever do. I like the black Lex in Superman and Lois because it is clearly telling a new and unique story with that twist, besides just saying "Lex is black yall" ya know what I am saying? Then it got me to thinking about how I disliked the change to Domino in Deadpool 2 until I watched it, but I still want the classic portrayal of that character at some point because that is what she always was to me. It's a tough call. I would have that black director do something like this and make it cool and better than Superman:

    Springtimes first bicycle ride, status report - after my dousing the whole system in oil last year, my brakes are still fucked up. Although they no longer scream to the slightest use - after a whole year of trying to de-grease them, they still scream full on air raid alarm on any "final push" to make my bike come to a full stop.

    Also, it appears spring sweeping has not yet happened, which means the streets are full of gravel - which isn't a problem per se - but it seems as if we have the dog-shit problem, but with shattered glass (dog shit problem: Norwegians are pretty diligent when it comes to picking up their dog shit - except for winter, they'll let their dogs shit in the snow, cus out of sight, out of mind. This results in a million dog shits coming into view, once snow melts in spring.)
    I never thought about glass shards - which prooobably stem from wild new years celebrations? That and just lack of shits to give, since snow and ice will bury all the shattered glass, which now comes to the surface. I also worry about people's pets in this regard. Either way, most of the trip I had to slalom between jagged shards of broken bottles

    Finally, after taking my expensive-ass bike to the repair shop TWICE in ONE year, some of my gears keep jolting the chain between them, resulting in these awkward kicks when trying to pedal. I do not remember my cheap-ass non-brand bike demanding this much fucking maintanance, when I was a teen.
    There's something about certain price-classes of things, where I suspect an attitude of "if you paid this much for something, I'm sure you won't mind just paying for it again and again, you filthy snob". It's really bothersome to a simple pleb like me, who will save up, believing money brings true quality.

    On the positive side, after a full winter of sitting in the sofa, eating meat and potatoes, I'm in surprisingly good shape! I took all those uphills like a champ (the same uphills that nearly murdered me to death when I first got the bicycle, and started to try to shape up!)

    My sofa-winter has not contributed to any weight gain, oddly enough - none! But I suspect that is more likely a matter of my muscles (heavy) being replaced by wobbly blubbery fat (light) - and that I'll probably experience some weight gain now that I'm back at physical activity, before it levels out again.

    D:
    You reminded me to go and check, and I'm at a nice and round 177 lbs (which equates to a nice and round 80 kilos)

    My gf's looking at all these charts, which calculate height and whatnot, and they all conclude I should weigh roughly the same as a small cat, so obviously I call health freak bullshit on those calculators. A good average weight for a good average dude is around 80 kilos, debate me. To meet her half way, I've agreed to setting my goal to 75 kilos, or 165 lbs.

    Last year, before getting serious with the bicycle I was at 211 lbs, and was starting to feel it.
    I got a nice route around my area, some flat stretches, but mostly ups and downs, which seem daunting at first, but do the exact purpose - you push hard on the uphills, and get a well deserved breather on the downhills. It took a long time to reach some form of "base level", where it didn't feel like I was killing myself. I bicycled like an absolute bitch for months and months - it was embarassing.

    One of my greatest moments of pride, was when I pedalled straight past some 12 year old girl in an uphill, like, "FUCK YEAH I'M STRONGER THAN A CHILD!" - but now I'm even kind of stable at a fairly average shape, which is so much more encouraging than struggling like a bitch was a year ago.
    If you got the will - couple it with some serious patience, get a helmet (protect your brain, own the nerd-look, headbutt anybody who laughs at you), put on some goggles - I bicycle with aviators, like a fuckin bawss, plug some music into your earholes, and pretend you're riding a motorcycle!

    Do you do liberal arts? I know someone who does and I was rather envious when they told me they were stressed out about their upcoming essay about Shrek.
