Should people who exercise seek to proactively replace fluids lost, or can they rely on thirst to guide them during and after physical activity? And when they rehydrate, do they need all the salts, sugars, and other ingredients dumped into sports drinks, or is water fine?
The correct answers are: best to rely on thirst, and water is fine.

“Think about how you’d feel if a guy sat down at your lunch table one afternoon when you were interviewing an applicant for a vice-president’s position and tried to sell the two of you a car, and wouldn’t go away.” – @Man.
I don’t read Doc as much as I used to. Which means that when I do – I’m completely floored.

“This ‘Kubb’ entry was rescued from Wikipedia on 25th September 2006, in its most extreme and most untrue state. The article was subject to a sustained assault over a five-month period by contributors who were reacting against the censorious approach of one Wikipedia official. Gradually they changed the text, added fictitious names and events, and generally abused the concept of Kubb, whatever that may be.
Kubb is a game of uncertain origins and with no official organisation to codify its rules. This uncertainty and ignorance makes it an ideal subject to be economical with the truth thereof.
Nearly all the text is rubbish, but no-one now knows which parts are true.”

Dobbie from Des Moines Kubb was in town tonight for the Minnesota Kubb Tuesday night friendlies. Jamie and I played a couple of very fun games with him while testing out the latest Planet Kubb Scoresheet. All told, 14 players were honing their wood tossing skills this evening. Despite the flesh wound, we all fared pretty well in this run up to the 2012 Nationals – even the scoresheet.
