some classic and ill informed quotes on their website: "And if bankers hadn’t crashed the economy" "One key driver of the economic crash was growing pay inequality" "Long before our banks went bust people’s wages had stopped growing."
I've never got the "I only have it so quiet so that I can hear everything around me" line. Prompts the question: why bother then? On the infrequent occasions I run with the ipod - usually dreadmill - I crank the volume up.
We did have one guy in the past on a similar thread who actually said that his hearing was enhanced by having headphones on as he was more in tune with the background noise. Couldn't make this stuff up.
""If headphones genuinely endanger others why do race organisers allow folk to wear them and start in them? Try cycling in a an organised race without a helmet. You just won't get past the start line. Try failing to meet the mimimum time for a stretch on a sportive, you'll get put in the broom wagon. How come running can't do same?
If they don't endanger but inconvenience then surely it has to be a case of live and let live?""
Couple of observations on this: Why should a helmet be compulsory in a cycle race? Who is endangered by not wearing one? Should running introduce speed limits? Not pass 2k in a park run within, say 10 minutes, and you have to drop out?
