Those Founding Fathers couldn't have imagined we'd have legislators who'd make "government" a career.

How could they have known the average life expectancy would increase by a quarter century (and that sheeple would keep re-electing these fools)?

Since our "representatives" don't have the self-discipline to step aside on their own, it's time for a term limit amendment.

Congress passed the Twenty-second Amendment, limiting presidents to two terms, seventy years ago.

Here's one idear for a 28th Amendment

Great piece on reducing drag via The Race Club is here.  Thanks for the heads up, DJA!

Frontal drag is the number one enemy of the swimmer. Swimming is arguably the most technique sensitive sport on the planet. With water being some 800 times denser than air, the frontal drag forces that slow swimmers down come into play at much slower speeds than all other sports on land. For that reason, in order to become fast, we must learn how to reduce frontal drag as much as possible.
