There was definitly a certain irony about reading that blog post yesterday, and my interest to bring it here. When I think of these non-geology types that dress this way I am forced to think of places like Boulder and Bozeman, for example.
No, they wear these clothes not to be ready at a moment s notice to head out to the real country, they wear these clothes as a form of conspicuous consumption. They are saying: see, I don t need to dress in old haut bourgeois weekend casual clothes, because I go out to Aspen (or Park City, or some other far off trendy place) and this is what I would be wearing if I were there. (Never mind that I only go once a season, or once every two years, I want you to think that it was just some huge deal at work that has kept me in NYC, so I am wearing my ski jacket to dinner on the Upper West Side, or I have on my fleece vest, even though I have just been to an indoor gym).
Luckily, we keep getting the exemptions, like noting that Europeans actually ARE into soccer. Well, we call it football. Also there should be an exemption about the sportswear. Europeans dress up after work, if they are going somewhere, Americans dress down. This means you are likely to meet a European person on the way to work in his fleece jacket, only to meet him out on town in an elegant coat and some snappy shoes after work. There should be warning for American men dating European women: do not get into your casual wear if you have invited her out to dinner! She ll come dressed to kill and if you re not dressed for it, she ll just leave your carcass in the gutter.

OMG! This is sooo funny! I m in seattle and no one knows how to dress anymore. We make fun of those women who wear velour track suits but is it any better to go to Starbucks all decked out in REI?
I love the soft feel of clothes that come out of the dryer. I also love the fresh smell of line dried clothes. What I do is hang the clothes to dry, then pop them in the dryer for about 10 minutes with a damp wash cloth/towel to soften them. This saves electricity also since I have an electric dryer.

That s because there are too many dipshits on the roads who would not see us otherwise. Of course, there is always the assclown who almost kills me, then tells me: I didn t see you. I usually reply that they should look past their nose.
De Magalhaes and Gladyshev are under no illusions about the arduous journey but they remain hopeful. History is full of claims by experts that certain advances are impossible, only to be proven wrong soon after, says de Magalhaes. Consider the state of medicine just 120 years ago, when some of today s bowhead whales were still in their infancy. Back then life-threatening infections were just a fact of life. Today, antibiotics are taken for granted as the most basic healthcare.
