....aaaand then they figured that it is crazy to let the people on foot compete in Marathon against creative people on the animals, bikes, cars, planes, trains in the same category. So they created CATEGORIES with some rules, so people on foot did not bitch about people on wheels.

....aaaand then came the transgenders, FTwhatever, rentastations and screwed things up arguing that people have rights.

....aaand if reason did not prevail, things started to go nuts and sane people figured no more fun in competition, they turned to activities that were satisfying and rewarding, like fighting communism and fake media.

I am retiring to focus on digitizing my photo/video archives so my kids could see how it used to be.
