Amazing! For me personally swimming 1 mile would be equivalent to running 50 miles. Maybe even farther than that....

Maybe the "average person couldn't bike 25 miles because the average person is pretty out of shape. But the average person between 15 and 50 that is even moderately active could bike 25 miles. Not at a 25mph pace though. Not sure where that came from but it wasn't in the OP....

It has to be swimming. You use more muscles. Watch the Tour de France and you'll see riders with huge legs and pencil arms.
Personally I haven't swam a cumulative mile in my life. Probably not even half that. But I have run over 5 miles dozens of times. Biked 25 miles plenty of times but most of...

Nobody really paid attention to assists before Magic. And then just like that Stockton made it irrelevant again because all he did was throw the ball to Karl Malone on fast breaks and pick and rolls. Not a...

Have you filled out a census before? Hispanic isn't a race so they ask you separately what your race is and whether or not you're Hispanic. You can be white Hispanic (Christina Aguilera and George Zimmerman), black Hispan...

I agree. Every major city is pretty bad at rush hour. What separates them is how long rush hour is and how bad traffic is outside of rush hour. In my experience only NYC and LA have rush hour traffic at random times of the day and on weekends unrelated to any unusual road work or accident. I haven't...

Yeah the 101 is terrible. I was in Hollywood last night and traffic heading home between Hollywood blvd and the 110 was 15-35 mph the whole way. That's not rush hour bad but this was 1030pm on a Sunday!...
