Lessons Learned
Caffeine enhances athletic performance. But today I learned, as with everything, that old adage about moderation in all things holds true here as well.
I learned DO NOT drink 7 cups of coffee before a big workout. You will get diminishing returns.
I was all wobbly by the time I was done.
I learned that mall gangstas driving their mom's SUV's with fake bullet holes in the back look incredibly stupid when they are driving around suburbia. Especially if they wear their ball caps sideways (does anyone even do that anymore?).
I'm hoping that we don't learn a tough lesson if the proposed legislation scheduled to be introduced by the Alberta government comes to fruition. Essentially, the legislation will allow for children to sue their mothers for car crash injuries they suffered while in utero.
We are all being assured that this type of legislation already exists in the UK without there being any subsequent reduction in women's rights.
That may be, but I can see this legislation providing an inpetus for further action toward decreasing the rights of women. We all know that certain groups with certain agendas will seize every opportunity available to them to curtail reproductive choice.

I seriously do not get what this legislation is all about.....Like if 18 years later the child is a loser (because of his/her own stupidity), she/he will sue the mother??!!! "Oh Mom, you hit the curb one time; I am going to sue you."
In my opinion, all this is ludicrous...........

Caffeine + workout = feeling my heart beat in my chest. I don't like that lately. I apparently need more iced tea... damn Autunm changes.

As for the whole kid/parent/right-to-knowledge thing... if I'm a horrid enough parent to the extent that my child doesn't feel safe enough to talk to me them I'M the one who needs some schooling. Generational gaps are products of the elder age, not the younger.

Weirdly enough this was actually started by the family (mom and dad) of a girl who is disabled so that the insurance company of the mom who was driving (when pregnant with her) will pay out for her care. I still find it worrisome. But yes, there is far to much litigation going on in my opinion and not enough personal responsibility.
