i have always wondered if anyone actually has trouble with those scrambled word things. THere's the number-substitution ones, like this one, and also the scrambled ones. Also backwards and upsidedown and mirrored and shit. But does anybody actually have trouble reading them? I always figured they're just to make you feel special but actually everyone gets it.

it would be a lot cooler if it had a more interesting message.


Yes, to both of you.

Dribble, I also often wondered whether there truly are people who can't read this sort of drivel. I do remember reading some research saying that as long as the longer words had the same first and last letter, people have no trouble with reading a scrambled message like that. Not sure about number substitutions, but really, seems pretty easy.

and that one is made easier by the typeface.

the mirrored, upside-down, and backwards ones I wonder more about, because people do seem to be occasionally surprised when I write more-or-less fluently upsidedown. (like, writing something for someone across a table and writing it so that they can read it.)

I can't do math in my head though. Like, at all. If I try to, I have to picture a piece of paper and "physically" pin the numbers down to it. But that's another one of those things where you're like, "does everybody do that?" and there's no way to know, because nobody talks about the way they conceive of letters and numbers.

It was definitely warm. But I still sent. That thing took way more time than I thought it would. Dribble also did some gneiss tard routes off the couch. Was a really good trip.

dribble clymes?

apparently, yesh. 5.11 trad, even. 5.10 with 40 foot runouts! (was snadbagged by camhat on my first route in 2 months. "lead the warmup" he says, "its awesome" he says.)

If that runout was 40 feet, then my ____ is 16 inches.

I would be careful with statements like that, if I were you. I am sure dribble will be able to disregard your screams of pain and to stretch _____ to the required length, in order to prove the point. If the thing falls off, as a result of stretching... just saying!


In other news, I have determined that I am imminently susceptible to mental suggestion. I got on Crown of Thorns, even though I was intimidated as heck by camhead's opinion that I would totally hate the route. Just as I was getting to the giant hueco and what looked like the reachy crux of the route, Shaun casually mentioned that his friend Ben, he of the 5.14 FA fame, took a long time to figure out that move out of the hueco, and was really mad at the beanpoles.

Next word out of my mouth, as I fail to reach the lip of the hueco? Of course, "TAKE"! But that move wasn't even the hardest one on the route!!!! Definitely not the reachiest!!!! And it took me about 30 sec to figure it out, once I got really mad. Sigh... I really wish BANZ was there, instead of Shaun. He knows just the right mix of mocking and encouragement to get me to believe in myself. Mad

Still, wouldn't want to hang the draws on that one! But I did hang my own draws on BEHJ.

Aw, you shouldn't have listened to Shaun. I would have just told you that a short person would have an easier time getting a high left heel on that move out of the Hueco. What was the reachiest move? That one out of the cool undercling pocket at the base of the top headwall?

Heel, what heel? No, I didn't use the heel, it was too far. And I didn't rock over on the high left foot and go up with the left hand from the rail coming out of the hueco. I pushed with left toe and went up with the right hand first, then got the left hand crimp, turned it into a fingerlock, and went with right to the jug. The cool undercling pocket on the headwall was not reachy, either. The reachiest move was above the last bolt, before reaching the anchor-clipping jug. I had to use an unchalked intermediate crimp.

In the gym the other night, N. was talking about a proj she had at the Red, which she needed B. to "hang the draws" on for her.

Me and Ande busted out laughing at this. After N. asked us why this was so funny, we told her what "hanging the draws" meant. She obviously did not fully get the gist of the entendre, because she simply said, with a disgusted look on her face, "Whatever you guys! I'll just hang my own draws!" To which we laughed even more.

Gud thymes.

LOL! In this case, I probably shouldn't make a big deal out of the fact that I hung the draws for N. on BEHJ. Well, I hung them for both N and B., as it happens... OI! NO, we will not go there!

Yeah, I went up with the right hand first, after matching on that rail. Slopy rail with both hands, toe in down low on the left, then reach up with right, then with left to the jug.

And you hanging the draws for N... AngelicAngelicAngelic

Well it made me feel special, and isn't that what counts?

I did find it interesting that reading the first couple of lines was a bit hard and then it became easy. Looking at it again the whole thing reads easier than the first time through. It's like learning to read someone's messy hand writing.

not really that hard. although our kat does not wake us up. it waits for the alarm to go off, then jumps up on the bed.

I think what happens is the cat takes a shit at 5am and then is all full of energy!

He hasn't been eating a ton in the last week since he got up here, I think he needs the time to adjust, but I'm chancing the time on his automatic feeder to feed him later at night, and hence he'll hopefully poop later in the morning.

our kat isn't really ever full of energy. although she will occasionally get freaked out about (??), and take off in a mad dash for the hallway. Can't really turn properly at full speed on the wood floors, so she basically runs along the wall in order to align herself down the hallway ... I haven't checked, but I assume paw prints are showing up within the first 2-3 ft. from the ground along there.

Calvin gets all squirrely and excited every time he poops. Kinda like a cat version of Doc?

I remember talking to a grade 4-5 teacher about this once. I tend to break up math problems into small chunks and deal with them individually before brining them back together.

hmm, not sure how well I write upside down -- but can read upside-down pretty easily (often do that at work).

I have weird visualizations for doing math in my head (and for spelling), but I wouldn't say it involves picturing a piece of paper.

Good times at Da Gunks. Great conditions today but supposed to rain tomorrow. Donny bailed on us to go sweat on some chix on the tango floor.

Did the Dangler and Star action today, and a couple easier things too. Oh yeah, did MF. Pretty impressed, this place is way good. Grades seem pretty normal so far.

HOw teh fuque did you wind up at dah gunks? A bunch of wack photos of ewe have come up on teh sfacespace, but none indicating and East Coast excursion.

The Gunks are pretty rad, though. Some of the best trad cragging evar. MF is the quintessential 9+.

I think somebody from out here is renting a haus for teh weke end. though depending on when I get in saturday night, I might just throw down at the oak creek trailhead off the rode, since we're gonna try to do Eagle Dance on satyrday. no brit to get sick and bail this thyme.

How long are you here?

Did the Dangler and Star action today, and a couple easier things too. Oh yeah, did MF. Pretty impressed, this place is way good. Grades seem pretty normal so far.

HOw teh fuque did you wind up at dah gunks? A bunch of wack photos of ewe have come up on teh sfacespace, but none indicating and East Coast excursion.

The Gunks are pretty rad, though. Some of the best trad cragging evar. MF is the quintessential 9+.

I can't beleive you just upgradded MF. Next you'll be calling CCK 5.8 and High E 5.7 (which would both be at least 5.10 anywhere else....).

Wait, I thought MF was 9+? Felt hard for me, but I may have been weke. Though, Dribble did take a phone call while leading it, so it can't be that hard.

i have always wondered if anyone actually has trouble with those scrambled word things. THere's the number-substitution ones, like this one, and also the scrambled ones. Also backwards and upsidedown and mirrored and shit. But does anybody actually have trouble reading them? I always figured they're just to make you feel special but actually everyone gets it.

it would be a lot cooler if it had a more interesting message.


Yes, to both of you.

Dribble, I also often wondered whether there truly are people who can't read this sort of drivel. I do remember reading some research saying that as long as the longer words had the same first and last letter, people have no trouble with reading a scrambled message like that. Not sure about number substitutions, but really, seems pretty easy.


and that one is made easier by the typeface.

the mirrored, upside-down, and backwards ones I wonder more about, because people do seem to be occasionally surprised when I write more-or-less fluently upsidedown. (like, writing something for someone across a table and writing it so that they can read it.)

I can't do math in my head though. Like, at all. If I try to, I have to picture a piece of paper and "physically" pin the numbers down to it. But that's another one of those things where you're like, "does everybody do that?" and there's no way to know, because nobody talks about the way they conceive of letters and numbers.

hmm, not sure how well I write upside down -- but can read upside-down pretty easily (often do that at work).

I have weird visualizations for doing math in my head (and for spelling), but I wouldn't say it involves picturing a piece of paper.


Not only can I write upside-down, and backwards, I can do it with both hands at once.

I actually learned to crochet when I was 6yo by taking a book with crocheting instructions and putting it in front of the mirror, so I could do it left-handed, instead of right-handed. I was kind of surprised when people made a big deal out of it. I was like, hmm, what's so special about it? I can still read the text, and the pictures look better that way.

And my math visualizations... you don't want to know!

She obviously did not fully get the gist of the entendre, because she simply said, with a disgusted look on her face, "Whatever you guys! I'll just hang my own draws!" To which we laughed even more.

Gud thymes.

I assume N. and B. are the two I met at teh BROnaugh wall?

Durp.

did she zend Belly of teh Beast, then? no draw hanging required on that won.

No, she is taking a break from that one, bc she was getting too frustrated. I guess she needed to mix things up with some draw hanging.

Sometimes hanging draws is just the thing needed for a zend. I'll have to ask her how it went tonight at teh gym.
