With Scott Weiland, it was kind of expected? But Chris Cornell? And suicide? Fark :(

Same, it just seems so unexpected. :(

It's a w00t of sorts - better than being stuck in customs?

Glass half full and all that ;)

That is shit. Good luck with getting it back in good condition.




I hate getting notifications like this, I assume the app is actually safe, but it makes me wonder...

And further on the android...
I hate websites with geographical redirects.
Anyone got a trick for visiting io9.com rather than Gizmodo?
I've clicked every deny location access button I can find, cleared every cache and told Google apps to gtfo etc...

A brother wants his preference of pop science news, not the shitty diluted version.

I hate how my mate's having ongoing issues with his Norco.
2013 Sight broke around the middle of the downtube, took 4 months to-and-fro with Marleens to convince them there's no impact damage.
Received new 2015 Carbon frame.
Spent $1000 for new wheels and fork as it's 650b, not like the 26" he had.
Now it's cracked on the seat-tube where a front mounted range extender would be.
In the 7 rides it's done it has never been crashed nor had any impact in that area, yet the warranty claim has been denied.
Crash replacement offered.
Why on earth would he want another Norco now?

He just wants to ride his bike FFS!

How are they claiming that though? My Giant cracked through there and everyone just scratched their head and couldn't work out how it happened.

It's a high stress area, with all the torsional force going through the BB.
But impact? Unless there's a ding nearby?
