“Why I race has evolved over the years and although winning feels great, racing to me has become about the challenge of performing MY best at that moment in time. Whether it’s a local beer league race or a World Cup its just me, the track and that damn ticking clock. It’s the rewarding feeling of doing your best despite feeling good or bad. Whether I win or lose, I am not the best and I am not the worst. I am not even in between. I am that I performed my best under whatever circumstances.”
Claire Kovarik (née Buchar), professional downhill mountain biker with multiple Canadian national and world cup medals in her trophy cabinet and fresh from winning the Garbanzo Downhill at Crankworx in Whistler Canada yesterday. Claire also coaches mountain biking and works freelance as a graphic designer.

Imagine, if something like gun control was applied to computers because a politician decided you don’t need to own a computer more powerful than what they defined as good enough for you, and the media was spreading fear about criminals having easy and unrestricted access to machines they could use to ruin peoples lives with over the internet. Now if you add angry mothers who fear that their children might get hacked or scammed online and thus computers should be restricted for everyone, you get something very similar to gun control.
Because only hackers and criminals need something more powerful than this, right?

Technically, you could say that is Florida, since Computers were actually banned here.

Wait what, tell me more

I wish I could make this up, but sadly, I can’t.

Stay classy Florida
