Like "gremmie" "grommet" comes to climbing from surf-lingo, where "grommet" generally refers to a young surfer who is often disrespectful of his elders.

I am not sure, exactly. However, if you are using "liters per problem sent" instead of "problems sent per litre" you are probably going to be in trouble. 8^)

He is getting flamed. It's just subtle. As somebody posted, that thread has potential to become an all-time rc.com classic.

If you had the choice between living in a world with unlimited long trad routes and NO SCOTCH, or a world with scotch but only bouldering, which would you choose?

Is there a negative relationship between amount of Scotch consumed and climbing ability? Is there a unit of Scotch where even Class 1 becomes too difficult?

As a current college student and an aspiring bum, the possibility of this effect has been plauging me.

Cuz curt has over 6000 post. So he obviously has nothing to do but sit around and answer your questions.

Actually, if you check out the back of the books "So Long" and "Mostly harmless" were listed by Douglass Adams as part of "the ever growing Hitchhikers Trilogy" but then again the guy was a comedian. Now for a Climbing Question:

Can you descibe UIAA lead rope testing methods?
And what do you think about the new dynamic testing?

UIAA rope testing methods are severe and rightly so. As a climber, you will never experience even one standard UIAA rope test fall in your climbing carreer. Because lead ropes are certified for multiple fall ratings, climbing ropes never break when in use. The only exception to this, which I have recently become aware of, is the breaking of a single climbing rope that was exposed to battery acid.

how do know 42 is the answer to "what is the meaning of life, the universe, etc."? i thought the the question to which 42 is the answer is unknown, but i don't remember if i read all the books, so i may have missed the question. and if that is the question, isn't that a bit of disappointment? so ho-hum.

Trust me on this one. You don't want to spend summer in Phoenix. Flagstaff, AZ. maybe, but NOT Phoenix.

Thanks. Here's one for you. You are a contestant on the game show Let's Make a Deal and you are asked to choose between getting what is behind door number 1, door number 2, or door number 3. Behind one of these doors is a new car and behind each of the other two doors is a goat.

You then select one of the three doors. After doing so, one door is opened, revealing a goat and you are then asked if you want to change your door selection. What should you do if you want to win the car?

jt512 and others who already know the answer should not respond.

i'm assuming they open one of the doors you did *not* pick?

in which case, you have, statistically, an equal probability of winning either with your initial choice or the other, 50/50 either way right?

Yes, they open one of the two doors you did not pick--and show you a goat. That being the case, should you change your original door choice, in order to better your chances of winning the car?

'cause it's a 1/3 probability that you guessed right the first time and a 2/3 probabilty its in one of the doors you didn't pick.

and if its not in the door they open... it's still a 2/3 probability that its in the one you didn't pick.

you switch. :D

Ive never seen lets make a deal so im not sure on how the game works but... i would say he would have to switch because by switching he would increase his probability of getting the right door to 2/3 as opposed to 1/3... but if that fails he could walk around with the goat hoping they are opposite sexes and the feral moans of a goat in heat would give away the answer.

PM me if im wrong... i might be way off

The question was "Before Mt. Everest was discovered, what was the tallest mountain in the world?"

Mount Everest was still the tallest mountian in the world even though it wasnt discovered.

Camalots or tech friends?

Did you really ever climb with Duskerhu?

Do you know how old Kurt really is?

And what was the bottom line for leaving Minnesota?

Thanks,

Doh. What is the tallest mountain in the world from base to summit (bottom to top) as opposed to elevation above sea level?

I think Clausti is right about his island in Hawaii... although its spelt Mauna Loa (day have dyslexic a). If i recall from my history classes its like 15 - 17 km (i cant remeber exactly)in evelavtion although most of that is pushed below the ocean floor.

Close. Its actually Mauna Kea, which is near Mauna Loa on the big island of Hawaii.

Excellent question. While much of the rock in Minnesota is indeed wonderful, the "choss" we have available to us down here is not currently covered by ice or snow.

Well, let's see. I had the opportunity to take a job in LA, involving a huge pay increase in 1981, with Tahquitz, Suicide, Rubidoux, Joshua Tree and Yosemite basically in my backyard--or I could stay in MN amd freeze my ass off for six months out of the year.......

Tough choice.

I think it is a hoot you know him. I don't think I'll look him up. It was a . . . what . . . 2 hour sesh and never saw him again. That would be akin to stalking. :)

I'll take these.

1. Yes
2. To my knowledge the two may not be mutually exclusive.
3. I once saw bear scat in a parking lot, so the answer is obviously sometimes.
4. Einstein's biggest mistake... that turned out to not be a mistake afterall.

Okay - I am an incredibly confusing person I am told... However, I am told I am incredibly articulate... but not articulately confusing....

Help?

1) Does the Pope wear a funny hat?

4) What is the Cosmological Constant?

I'll take these.

1. Yes
2. To my knowledge the two may not be mutually exclusive.
3. I once saw bear scat in a parking lot, so the answer is obviously sometimes.
4. Einstein's biggest mistake... that turned out to not be a mistake afterall.

For this first rate, buck-up effort at standing in for Curt and for correctly answering the above questions, I am honored to present you with the following prize.

Congratulations, j_ung!

Kerwin! Hah! I am sure he doesn't remember me, but that name! That rockabilly hair! :)

Well, you are going for your PhD, no? You can look up Kerwin Klein at UC Berkeley. He is a professor of history there. I think its a hoot that you ran into him in Toulumne.

Curt

I think it is a hoot you know him. I don't think I'll look him up. It was a . . . what . . . 2 hour sesh and never saw him again. That would be akin to stalking. :)

Hey Mac, you should really check out Klein's book, at the very least, although I am not sure if that is stalking or not. Frontiers of the Historical Imagination. Really interesting fusion of intellectual history and literary criticism that traces the development of how writers through the twentieth century have approached the myth of the American West.

hehe. Dude, curt, Mac is another humanities student, she just may like Klein's book. I've been using it for a lot of stuff lately as I prepare for my comp exams.


(soapbox)
Academics in the climbing community are incredibly rare. We all how many engineers, scientists, and mathmaticians climb, and not infrequently we hear about how they apply their logical, left-brained analysis to their climbing. The sciences are conducive to climbing.

However, we never hear about professors in history, english, philosophy, or anthropology that climb. There are very few. There have even been a few times as I sit through seminars listening to fellow students and professors hedge around problems, using unnecessary complicated words, and accomplish absolutely nothing intellectually, that I sometimes wonder if being an academic is somehow NOT conducive to climbing.
Would we push forward through the crux, or would we simply sit around talking about it?

So yeah, that's why I was so stoked when you told me about Klein: tenured professor at a very reputable institution, who is also a hell of a climber.

And his book r00lezzzzz.

NH is cooler than UT for all of the following reasons and many more:

-Easier access to Beer and other staples of a climber's life (whatever they may be)
-The temperature is lower
-There are no "anti-cruising" laws in NH
-The traffic lights don't beep at you
-Fewer people will try to get you to join their religion and bring all your dead relatives with you
-The lakes don't have salt in them
-Having tried to sleep in a car in both states, I can tell you that fewer people will hassle you in NH
-If people do hassle you in NH, they are less likely to be armed
-Orin Hatch does not live in NH

coylec

I returned to this thread because this is a SERIOUS QUESTION, requiring a SERIOUS ANSWER. First of all "scotch" means different things to different people. For instance, to me blended scotch isn't really scotch at all, in spite of the fact it is Scottish. Go figure. So, we are talking about single malt whisky here, OK?

There are distinct regional differences found in the malts distilled in the four major regions of Scotland. There are lowland malts, which are rather light and somewhat resemble Irish whisky. There are the Highland malts, which vary considerably, but (in general) are more distinctive than the lowland malts and often have flavors that result from ageing the whisky in Oloroso Sherry barrels, or Port barrels, etc. Next are the island malts, from Islay, Skye, the Orkneys, etc. which charactaristically exhibit intense smoky flavor, resulting from the use of local peat to halt the germination of the barley. Last of all are the Campbeltown malts, which are in their own distinct class. So, you will really have to see which type (or types) of these malts appeal to you personally.

In spite of that caveat, here are a few suggestions for you:

Everyday drinking: 10 year old Springbank (Campbeltown), 12 year old Macallan (Speyside - highlands), or Highland Park from the Orkneys.

Special occasion drinking: 25 year old Macallan (about $400 per bottle and in my opinion, the very best malt available) or 25 year old Glenfarclas (at $150 a bottle, about 1/3 the cost of the Macallan) which is almost as good and is similarly aged in Oloroso Sherry casks.

To impress people: Well, either of the two above should get the job done. If you want to impress me, you can buy the bottle of 1946 Macallan that is on sale at the store near me, where I buy my whisky. It is only $3,000 and I will help you drink it. Haha.

I have often remarked that I prefer spotting you, as opposed to Kerwin. This is partly because you fall. Frequently.

In reply to:
Hey Curt, how long of an article do I have to write (@ 35 cents/word) to afford a bottle of Curt-worthy scotch?

A mere 1,200 word article would score a bottle of 25 year old Macallan. Its older than you--and sweeter too.

@&^**@%^ you and the ^%&*@@#$ horse you rode in on.

In reply to:
Hey Curt, guessing the answer to the above question, can I have your new rack now, too?

Nope, I used the stuff in October at the Gunks, where there is actually good trad climbing. So, I still need it. Besides, I already gave you all my old crap.

Silly Irish and Canadians. Hahahaha.

In reply to:

I suspected something had died in there, when I was at your place several months ago.

In reply to:

Only with my beta and me spotting you.

In reply to:

No. Actually the time passed quite quickly on that trip, since I was deeply immersed in imagining various means by which I could kill myself.

No. Actually the time passed quite quickly on that trip, since I was deeply immersed in imagining various means by which I could kill myself.

Curt

I`m sitting here with a mental image of climbsomething spraying pringles all over the windscreen talking with her mouth full whilst curt is stabbing himself in the chest or bashing himself upside of the head with some slung hexes. climbsomething, blah blah blah, spray, blah, spray, stuff. curt, cling, bong, thud.

NH is cooler than UT for all of the following reasons and many more:

-Easier access to Beer and other staples of a climber's life (whatever they may be)
-Orin Hatch does not live in NH

how do you have easier access to beer? you gonna buy it for me?
who is orin hatch?

Do you really not know about beer in UT? It's called near-beer. Only 3.2% alcohol content. I can pound a six-pack and not get a buzz. (And I'm a major lightweight.)

Orin Hatch is a repressed homosexual who likes to sing cheesy patriotic duets with John Ashcroft.

By far and away, the climber I learned the most from was John Stannard. John Gill was another huge influence on my climbing carreer, but of course, that influence was more related to bouldering. As far as "favorite" goes, there are many, many climbers that I have enjoyed climbing with and continue to enjoy climbing with.

I'd just assume not associate the words "work" or "career" with climbing, so hence no "climbing career". So to rephrase, you could say John Gill helped you with your climbing mojo.

Not bad at all. Probably around 65 degrees and sunny out at Oak Flat today. I did get one $^&*@#ing flapper that wouldn't stop bleeding, but other than that, it was a great day.

dude, "indie kid" is sooooo mid-nineties.

and all I know about emo is that it gets played at my gym way too much. I can't really see why one would be inclined to make out to it, though, unless it makes them feel unusually heartfelt-tormented-whatever.

Back in Austin, TX there is a club called Emo's that had a band play there frequently called the "Fuck Emos", which I assumed was a comment on the club itself. I'm sure all of this goes back to the Tickle me Elmo doll from Seasame Street. Pfffft.

Uh, cos they're emo? I'm still hung up on the goth kids that would cut up their arms in class and write bad poetry to Marilyn Manson and NIN (how 1997 am I??). My little brother (who's 17) makes fun of the emo kids, but I don't know if what he listens to is rockin' either. Taking Back Sunday, whine-whine-effeminate wail-SCREAM, type-stuff. Kids. Which reminds me, my dude got the Vans Warped Tour 2004 compilation disc and we listened to it on the way to and from Hueco this weekend. Blah. I must be out of touch... but that shit was bad.

Uh, cos they're emo? I'm still hung up on the goth kids that would cut up their arms in class and write bad poetry to Marilyn Manson and NIN (how 1997 am I??). My little brother (who's 17) makes fun of the emo kids, but I don't know if what he listens to is rockin' either. Taking Back Sunday, whine-whine-effeminate wail-SCREAM, type-stuff. Kids. Which reminds me, my dude got the Vans Warped Tour 2004 compilation disc and we listened to it on the way to and from Hueco this weekend. Blah. I must be out of touch... but that s--- was bad.

I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about either. And here I thought you might be able to serve as an interpreter between clausti and me.

Curt

It's apparant that the term "emos" is similar to what "goth" means, albeit with a particular modification that is only meaningful to those who apply the term or felt the need for it. I think quite possibley for you and me Curt, we could lump all those kids into the group labeled "little fuckheads".

When I was in high school in Utah ten yeas ago it was all metal heads, ska boys, ravers, grungers, and straight edgers.

No emo back in them days, although Sunnyday Real Estate did give a local concert. I think they later became total emo bedwetters.

Hey clausti, there were always guys like that in school when I was younger, we just didn't have a specific name for them. It's actually good that you have identified the personality type, and so can more precisely ridicule it. This is always good.

Yeah, I wear baggy jeans and frequent coffee shops myself. I thought the devotion to a particular type of music and the drivel it embraces was the core of the emo thing, like goth kids wanting to be vampires and get all into death stuff, way cool. Speaking of sort of proto-goth kids, my brother once knew a kid named Danny he met in art class. Danny knew some punk kids who reportedly robbed a grave of an elderly man and put it in their attic and named Gramps. This is the sort of thing I think would later appeal to goth kids to do. I'm surprised there was not a fad like this.

Maybe if I dig up a photo of my brother, it'll make it all clear. He's what clausti described to a tee (girls' jeans included!), except for the bad music he listens to. Being scrawny and unkempt with too-small "vintage" clothes and big black glasses works for me at Tori Amos concerts, but not him :P I'm not trendy, just horribly out of touch.

Curt, if I go to Red Rocks with only one day to climb, is Levitation-29 worth my day or should I pick something else? Also, is it in the shade or sun (doable in the Winter without too much discomfort?)?

Emo is like the new Country. Every song sounds the same...and it all sucks.

"Emo" is also short for 'emotional punk.' Frightening concept.

Also, I think clausti is being a little generous by saying that they are usually above average intelligence. :P What a bunch of whiners! :lol:

I have gotten snowed out a couple of times at Red Rock that time of year, so it will all depend on the weather. Do the first 7 pitches and rap, rather than topping out and doing the walk-off. Supposedly, that's the better option.

I`m guessing here and will say you would weigh the same as gravity is a factor of mass and not of rotation.

In reply to:

It does not swirl at the equator.

In reply to:
Does the swirling effect increase as you move away from the Equator?
Obviously the answer to that would have to be yes due to the non existent swirl at the equator, thus the swirl takes effect due to the coriolis effect when even a hundred yards from the equator. So from no swirl to some swirl the effect is thus an increased swirl.

The swirling effect is what gives us the rotation of tropical storms such as hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones and of course last but not least tornadoes.

Cyclones rotate for the most part in a clockwise direction in the southern hemisphere much in the same way as water swirls down the toilet in a similar fashion of clockwise. This is of course reversed in the northern hemisphere to being counter clockwise.

Hahaha, as Papua New Guinea is the nearest foreign country to our state of Queensland (we share a border) I keep abreast (pun intended) of our neighbours. I`ve seen pics of those women with their babies on their backs and I kid you not that the babies are using their mothers breasts to feed from whilst still strapped to their backs. Those things are like razor strops. They pick their boobs up and fling them over their shoulders to keep them out of the way. A kid will be feeding on one while a pig feeds on the other, I am not joking.

Pigs are virtually the cash econonmy of Papua and so if a pig is orphaned a mother will feed it herself.

Are you too old to go to the geezer gathering?

Brenda

Actually I fear I may be too young. However, I intend to try and sneak by on a waiver or perhaps on a technicality. By the time of the geezer gathering next June, I will be 49 (and in my 50th year) so, I may round up my age rather than truncating. Haha.

If you lived in Papua New Guinea in all likelyhood you would have had half a dozen kids by the time you are 21 and as bras are not a fashion accessory you would more than likely be able to throw your boobs over your shoulders.

Where did you come up with the less than 1% number, Most estimates say that approximately 10% is gay or bisexual. You don't have to approve of the lifestyle. You don't have to consider it moral. You don't have to beleive that it is a genetic, not learned, trait. But, as global and US citizens, you have an obligation to accept diversity. Tolerate at least. And how is it shoved down our throat? Just ignore it if it bothers you, but don't persecute others because of it.

Who`s persecuting who here, where did that come from?

The ten percent figure comes from the now widely discredited Kinsey report. The true figures are less than 1%.

As for toleration, the 99% of the rest of us are expected to tolerate but that same toleration is not shown by the other side.

what on earth are you talking about? i don't recall ever seeing any petitions to ban straight marriage.

i have a question curt that is much more important than this religious fundamentalist crap. i'm moving into a new house with a full bar downstairs. i want to stock it with a good selection of whiskys that represent different regions and characters of scotch well. so far i have a bottle of macallan 25yr(i broke down and had to buy another bottle - you can get it for $290 at applejack in denver), a bottle of lagavulin 16yr, a bottle of talisker 10yr, and a bottle of bowmore 12yr. what do you suggest i get to complement that? maybe 4-5 additional bottles.

Well, diversifying by region is always good. I would suggest a bottle of Springbank, the premier Campbletown malt, a bottle of Highland Park from the Orkneys, and a bottle of Edradour from Pitlochry (the smallest distillery in Scotland) and my favourite of all the distilleries I have visited.

Then perhaps double up on either good Speybank or Islay malts. If you prefer Speybank, I would recommend either a bottle of Glenfarclas or Glenlossie (if you can find it) or, if you prefer the smokier Islay malts, go for a bottle of Ardbeg.

If you actually care about your scotch selection and don't want to drink the same 15 or so name brands over and over until you die from boredom, and don't care that guests will not see fnacy lables, may I recommend you either purchase re-bottlings of single-cask (scotts selection, etc. any decent store can help you, or I would be happy to) or, better yet, join the scotch malt whisky society. (www.smwsa.com) I have been a member for a number of years. You get access to HUNDREDS of bottlings from every region, shipped to you undiluted, non-chilfiltered, single cask, cask-strength. Tasting notes are available. When someone comes to your house, find out what they like, and then use your experience with these remarkeable whiskies to give them a treat they will be amazed by. The opportunity to dilute (with correct water, of course) to an appropriate nosing proof or drinking prrof is remarkeabble, as is the option of tasting at cask strength and diluted, experiencing the difference in the nose and moutfeel as different strengths are attained. otherwise, go with Curt's selections and recommendations. They are all quite good.

The smws whisky is not cheap, averaging around 90-100 a bottle, but they are simply amazing. If you have not had the pleaseure of drinking indivisually selected cask-strength non-chillfiltered scotch, you are missing out. if you are ever around CT, I'd be happy to share a dram or three with you.

Edit: To further agree with Curt, if you do buy springbank, buy a bottle of every age they have available. It is one of the most intriguing vertical tastings I have ever had the pleasure of taking part in. Old springbank is hard to find...good luck!!

Yes, I think they do, and see a country they still love rejecting it to such a vile degree that they stated (most speaking in hyperbole, I imagine) this extreme position.

The fact that a decent percentage of the populace supports writing bigotry into the constitution based on their own morality is simply unacceptable to another decent percentage.

HOW DOES GAY MARRIAGE/RIGHTS affect you?? You don't have to find it moral. But why must you make it illegal? Why should people in love and dedicated for life have less rights than you because you think they are doing something immoral?

What if the religios right said that having the hair color you have makes you less of a person, and you should not be allowed to marry. If the majority agreed, you would just accept it, right? Thought so.

Yes and Yes. For example, in a dispute between a husband and wife, the husband almost always wins, regardless of who is at fault. In the spirit of embracing diversity shouldn't we withhold judgements?

I do believe you are missing the difference between tolerance/diversity and blind acceptance. If a person is harmed, or rights UNDER THE LAW are infringed, then it is not a matter of tolerance. If a person is considered "winning" in the home, then yes, that is a matter for the religion, and should be tolerated. If, for example, a woman can be diverced inside the religion for disagreeing with her husband, that's her religion. I might not lie it, but its hers. If she tries to get help from the courts, because this is against the family law where she lives, then the court must apply the law of the land fairly, regardless of her (or his) religion. If religios doctrine is allwoed to run the law, then the taliban is right, and we are wrong. Same goes for the debate re: homosexualtiy. The law must not be driven by some group's take on religious doctrine.

Dude... how hard can it possibly be for you to make a smart comment... I am still waiting patiently on the first one to be said. :P

Oh and a question for Curt:

How does one convince their parents that they are an adult and therefore can make decisions on their own without alienating said parents?

Dear Curt,
What's with your striking resemblance to actor Kevin Spacey?

When you climb w/ Hillary do you check out her ass? If yes is it:
A) a quick glance
B) multiple glances
C) a long awkward stare where drool starts to form in the corner of your mouth and unconsciously your brake hand slides off the rope to adjust your unit from the fantasies that you play out in head

Usually we are bouldering, so it is my solemn responsibility to watch her ass all the time. Sometimes, if she falls, I am even forced to save her ass. Thank you for your question. :wink:

Hey Curt did this thread turn out like you thought it would?

Pretty much, except I thought it would have died out about 15 pages ago. :lol:

Curt

Do you feel that same responsibility when we boulder together??? Do you look at my ass the same way you look at Hillary?

On another note. Found some cool boulders above Eldorado with Kelly. I feel the same way bouldering with Kelly as you do with Hillary.

Get your ass ready ready for JT in Jan. Later, Bob

Of course I watch your ass when we boulder together, just not with the same fondness. 8^) J.T. in January sounds good, count me in.

what smart remark could you possibly make from this??

Something along the lines of cold, bra top, M&Ms perhaps. We call it "on high beam". You asked. :roll: :wink: :lol:
