Hey, who flattened the hills?

This weekend, I went to a friend's house on Mercer Island to see the US Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration team perform. They do this every summer as part of Seattle's Seafair festival, but this was the first time I got to see the show up close and personal. The I-90 bridge is closed for safety reasons, and people are allowed to walk onto the highway (at least for a short distance) to get a better view of the demonstration.

Two summers ago my friend invited me to his place, but I made the mistake of trying to drive to Mercer Island—traffic was horrific and I finally arrived just as the show was wrapping up. (I did manage to glimpse a plane pass by at very low altitude though.) This year I decided to ride my bicycle to his house. It's just an hour's ride and I don't have to worry about traffic! It seems that somebody flattened the hills along the bike path that follows highway I-90. Okay maybe it's just that I'm in better shape now but I like to think it's because they were nice enough to flatten the hills.

  1. And of course, since you’re neither curious nor logical, you didn’t wonder where they put the hills ! I’ll tell you: Yesterday, I went for some biking in my neighborhood. And guess what : They put hills where it used to be fairly flat !

    I was wondering but now I know: These are your hills ! Please come and take them back !

    And guess what, the planes probably run QNX, but definitely not Windows, otherwise the Blue Angels would Blue Screen! Windows shell team is rubbish so LongWait realtime capabilities will be rubbish anyway.

    It’s sad when the high point of your day is posting some insulting drivel on someone’s blog. I would say the guy is just jealous because he has never produced anything noteworthy in his entire life, and most likely never will. However jealousy is probably too high of an emotion for this person to experience, he is probably just an angry bitter loser sitting in some crappy flat somewhere telling himself how clever he is and cursing the rest of the world for not acknowledging it. To the OP I would suggest you make your way back over to /. before you miss the daily circle jerk, don’t forget your picture of Linus Torvalds.
