Is High End Audio catchin' up with you all?


I'm pleased to say that I weigh only about 12 pounds more than when I graduated college.  I still wear the same size clothes.  I exercise, I hike in the Summer months, and I ski in the Winter months.  I pull up from the ocean large tuna and other pelagic species during the Summer months, too.  I'll say, that is an exercise unto its own.  My diet is excellent, and I do enjoy craft beer and good wine.

I exercise my mind with reading and with great high fidelity.

I am fortunate that my genes are from a wonderful lineage of good health and long lives.  That said, nothing is a guarantee and there is no expiration stamp on my rear end.  While I am not exactly like either of the 3 dudes in the picture, I do my best to live a healthy life and maintain good strength and mobility.  And great music with good high fidelity playback plays a nice role in my healthy life.  High end audio is not catching up with me, it has been a part of me for most of my life.

Keep it going, everyone!

Shout out to  flatblackround! I'm 6'7" and have always hated running, workouts, and all the other reindeer games. I am coordinatized but never saw the point of putting myself through the misery. I have a theory that tall people on average don't like working out, while shorter people love it. I know I'm stereotyping, but maybe it's on average true. Maybe the shorter person get results faster or gets the endorphin release faster than tall people. Maybe tall people's lungs aren't sized for the total blood volume.  Sure, pay a 7 footer 10 million dollars a year in the NBA and they will lumber up and down the court, but not normally the running type. Think about it...ever see a really tall guy running on the road, or were they pretty short? Weight lifters...pretty short. Bikers, maybe a few more taller people, but mostly short. No judgment, it has just always seemed to me that shorter people have some motivation/reward for these activities that taller people don't get. To flatblackround's point, in a bar you get a normal distribution of height and weight!
