She probably wouldn't understand why you spend so much time around SSC, Google Maps and Eurobilltracker!

The N-word !

It can be used among nerds but if outsiders use the n-word its derogatory.

I don't care for politically correct. A nerd is a nerd, a black guy is a black guy and a cracker for me is just something to eat.

A black guy is a black guy, and that's a fact, not a stereotype. I didn't say "all black guys have long dongs". That's a stereotype.

Well, I spend time on all those, and more. However due to the trolls that inhabit EBT's forum I'm at record low activity . But spinoza climbs mountains too. The only peak I claimed is one of the two peaks of the Salto del Roldán (Roldan's jump) near my hometown.

Yesterday I went climbing (or better, hiking to) Monte Guglielmo (1957 m) near Iseo Lake. Crazy crystal-clear day, I could see all western Alps with Monte Rosa massif, almost 200 km away. I will post some pics later.

Awesome. Love such views, thanks for sharing! I was near Lago di Iseo in 2007, SS510 is a very scenic road.
