Oooh how the ladies love alliteration! Really all I want to do is write about living in the RV, but every day I would just write "man! this is great!", so I'll write about something else. Anyway, I have very little power in the RV at the moment... I have to run the generator which uses a lot of gas. I bought an awesome solar panel that will provide me with non stop electron flow, but it doesn't get installed for another week. Anyway - on with the story.
This happened a while back, but I never got around to posting it because I'm a jerk.
Todd, Jonah, and I were hanging out on the roof of the condo, admiring the skyline. The skyline these days is packed with construction cranes just begging to be climbed. That night we obliged.
Jonah didn't want to do it, which worked out very well in the end. He got a bluetooth headset and watched for police and traffic while we walked towards the crane.
"Ok, the coast is clear," todd heard through his earpiece.
Our casual meandering walk transformed into a sprint. We ran at the fence, climbed over it and ran through the shadows as we ducked. Lots of windows in Austin could see the construction site, so we figured it was best to spend as little time in the open as possible.
We took our time climbing up the ladder, confident that no one would spot us. Whenever cops drove by, Jonah would alert us and we'd stay still. We made it to the top, took some pictures, and headed back down undetected.
Hey Tynan, just a quick FYI the links to the pictures are broken. It looks like there's no slash after your base URL and the wp-content folder.
i'd love to meet all of you who think tynan is "awesome." i think either you're in high school, are unemployed, or live with your parents (or all three). tynan, remember some idiot is reading this and thinks its cool. his foot slips and he falls off a crane. dead. no suing, no instructions to his parents. dead. my first and last post. enjoy
I Got arrested and charged with 2nd degree criminal trespass (simple misdemeanor) for the same thing.
Tynan you are awesome. Your site is so great I broke a wine bottle off in my ass today, just because I wanted to live life awesome. It was not awesome at all. It hurt, and was smelly.
Well, four babies actually, but maybe it's good to get the word out that soy milk is not enough for a newborn.
Those people are clearly idiots. No breast milk? Breast milk is incredibly important.
That said, most vegans do NOT eat a good diet. Over reliance on soy is a big problem. Vegetarians live longer than meat eaters. They also live longer than vegans, but I'm confident that my diet is better than any other (no sugar / no flour / lots of vegetables / nuts).
The most offensive thing is the article. One baby dies because of some idiot parents and everyone knows about it?
Tynan-- I enjoy your posts immensely. I'd like to read more about your attempts to become polyphasic though! I've tried changing my sleep patterns many times, all with little success. I'd love to read a "Polyphasic for Couch Potatoes" along the same lines of "Working out for Wimps" to help those of us who wish to spend less time in dream-land.
Wow. This has got to be one of my all time best stories.
On Wednesday night I was talking to my good friend Jonah and was telling him about the show "
I meandered to the application site, downloaded the application, and began to check out the requirements. Guess when the due date for the tape was? Friday at 5pm, which meant that we had one day to create a 3 minute video, fill out the two 11 page applications and get some passport sized photos taken. Not one to back down from a
Artem, Bryce and I ran the Urbanathlon in NYC this past weekend. It was pretty great.
We drove down to Artem's house in New Jersey, dropped some stuff off, and then took a train to NYC. We got to the gym to pick up our registration packets at 7:40, and saw Jessie/Hardcoretraceur, X, and M1l3s there. We hung out outside the gym for a while, then split ways and headed towards Artem's grandparents house in Brooklyn.
All I can say is: Goddamn can Russians cook. And goddamn DO Russians cook. We must have eaten two or three meals in the... 2 hours we were there and not sleeping.
Got to sleep at 11:30, then woke up at 3:30 to hop on the train to Manhattan. We all got to our places with varying degrees of fail (Artem took the express train by accident, the train I needed was closed so I had to walk, Bryce missed one of his trains), and then the race began! Artem ran the first leg of the race, and did quite well, running a 22 minute 5k, including the time it took to pass the obstacles (Jersey barriers, climbing through tubes). He passed me the timing chip, and I took off. Passed my obstacles with absolutely no difficulty. I was actually a little bit disappointed in how easy they were (Scaffolding maze, Marine hurdles). I passed off to Bryce, who took off up the 52 flights of stairs in World Trade Center Building 7. He completed those in 13 minutes. Absolutely amazing. We actually missed him on the way down, because we didn't expect him to do them that quickly.
We all met up again at the finish line, where Jessie and I took to playing with the taxis hurdles and the 8ft wall climb. We got a nice shot of us simultaneously konging the taxis (I actually slipped and had to roll on the concrete, which worked out well), and then we flew over the wall, much to the surprise of the marines milling about.
