They have a zipper.

:thinking: Okaaaay… But you put a key in your shoe…?

The “wrist wallets” are also available in plushy or for the upper arm:

or these little things:

Hm, I guess the arm one could be okay.

Can I get that one in the corner that has a parachute?


#24

Yes, at Alibaba. They deliver with a drone from China and drop the wallet with that parachute over your house.


#25

The drone zone above my house is getting busy!


#26

Yep.

Last week I went 3 times, each 30 minutes and ~6.5 km.
Seems like on/over “water” is faster than on “land” (I “run” 10 km in one hour on cross trainers).
But for now I wouldn’t be able to keep rowing at this speed for a whole hour but I’m working on it…

  • Another pro is that I can listen to podcasts without killing myself. I am really bad at concentrating on two different things at the same time.
    On elliptical trainers people even read books and watch movies.
  • For non-UK countries: You don’t have to care about sunscreen.

Btw. those machines also allow varying difficulty (speed/resistance, incline). You don’t get to see different scenery but you also won’t get killed by bears or berries.


#27

Yes! That too. I was halfway through my workout then thought, why am I not listening to a podcast? Then realised it’s because I’m used to that not being an option. I’d probably end up sprawled on someone’s lawn if I tried that outside.

Yeah, I quite like choosing a random or mixed terrain to make it more interesting/challenging.


#28

Well, I would invite you for a cup of coffee or tea if you lie on my lawn. But I don’t think that listening to a podcast would be enough to get over my garden fence… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#29

Haha, I just went through an amusing scenario in my head where you discover me on your lawn and the first thing you say is ‘Oh hello. Fancy a cuppa?’


#30

We´re germans, we´re like that. We´re not like those americans who load up their double barrels when some stranger turns up on their lawn.

Now I´m preparing for @yrface to rightly scold me for that…


#31

The German response is probably quite similar to the British, I’d say. Except we wouldn’t want anyone to see.


#32

As I’ve said before, I live on an island off the coast of America. :grimacing:

Those of us on the east & west coasts tend to have different views about guns than the middle of the country.


#33

It´s funny the americans I´ve talked to online are always like that. They hated Bush (now Trump) the brits I know are remain voters, the italians don´t love Berlusconi, the scandinavians aren´t Anders Breivik…

I dunno, to me personally the internet seems much better than it´s reputation…


#34

Maybe you’re right… or perhaps the Xenophobes tend to stay in their own bubbles, and miss out on nice interactions with people from other countries like we have here.


#35

Play Thimbleweed Park and stay fit:


#36

But that doesn´t make any sense captain! Life is no dream, that song is stupid!


#37

Ok, play Thimbleweed Park while your kids get a workout.


#38

Whew, finally somebody got the reference, I was really worried there for a second (or three weeks as it turns out).


#39
GET OFF MY LAWN!


I’ve got a new record on the cross-trainer!
This is the step counter (yes, it’s the correct orientation):

I walk more from here to the fridge!

Wait no I don´t what was a lie, terribly sorry!
