So I bought a cheap digital camera and decided I would take photos and edit them and post them mostly without comment (hard for me!).&nbsp;The collection grew to 31,000 photos!&nbsp;Before September 11, airline flights were cheaper than the gasoline to drive some places. I had free places to land on floors.&nbsp;I went. I took photos. I edited them.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/roadskater-net-photos-revolved-faster-better-fetching-views-people-days-and-places-brightened-my-life" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/roadskater-net-photos-revolved-faster-better-fetching-views-people-days-and-places-brightened-my-life#comments Roadskater.net 2011 2012 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2000s United States of America (USA) North Carolina (NC) 2000-9 2010s Alabama (AL) Anniston AL Athens GA Athens to Atlanta (a2a) Atlanta GA bike rides Carolina Century charity rides Clemmons NC Dacula GA District of Columbia (DC) Earth Florida (FL) Forsyth County NC Georgia (GA) Greensboro NC Guilford County NC inline skating Manhattan NY Miami Beach FL New York (NY) New York City NY open road outdoor Pennsylvania (PA) Philadelphia PA photo albums photofloat photogalleries Roadskater.net roadskating skating skrides (skateable bike rides) Smyrna GA South Beach FL Tanglewood Park Tour to Tanglewood (t2t ttt) Washington DC websites photos North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1457 Thu, 08 Nov 2012 02:25:42 +0000 roadskater 1457 at http://roadskater.net Rat Has No Control: High Fructose Corn Syrup, Cane Sugar, Glucose, Sucrose http://roadskater.net/rat-has-no-control-high-fructose-corn-syrup-cane-sugar-glucose-sucrose <p>Many years ago I saw a documentary on PBS. Something about stress in animals, including, supposedly, humans. Anyway, as they were interviewing some human, a sign on one of the cages in the background read, <strong>"RAT HAS NO CONTROL."</strong> I have almost never stopped laughing about the beautiful truth of those four words of homemade bumper sticker. This is the answer to the majority of the world's questions.&nbsp;</p><p>To be fair, there must have been another cage back there that had a sign reading, "RAT HAS CONTROL." This was the point of the experiment, to show that rats with some control (and predictability of circumstances, as I recall) were much more able to handle rat stress induced upon them by humans.&nbsp;Anyway, great show, and one I've remembered for a long time, eh?&nbsp;</p><p>This site mentions the experiment (check out the base url!):</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Princeton University </span> <span class="locality">Princeton </span>, <span class="region">New Jersey</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="40.348718">40° 20' 55.3848" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-74.659047">74° 39' 32.5692" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=40.348718+-74.659047+%28%2C+Princeton+%2C+NJ%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;csz=Princeton+%2C+NJ&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!

Maybe it's the low center of gravity, little awareness of pain, and ability to spin without expelling previously ingested appetizers? I don't know, but as much as I love road skating and find most street and vert performances to be a bit repetitive, I enjoyed watching this young Scot hit the ramps. Here's a bit of viddy with more available. If you only look at a few seconds, start at 2:30 or so to the end to see some front and back landing spins and some post ramp flippage.

Being from Holland and then Canada, it'd be crazy to think she never skated, but it seems her speedskating started some time around 1980 in a serious way.
