Surprise double-header!

Swiss electrical engineer George de Mestral invented his first touch fastener when, in 1941, he went for a walk in the woods and wondered why burdock seeds clung to his coat and dog. He discovered it could be turned into something useful.[2] He patented it in 1955, and subsequently refined and developed its practical manufacture until its commercial introduction in the late 1950s.

The fastener consisted of two components: a lineal fabric strip with tiny hooks that could "mate" with another fabric strip with smaller loops, attaching temporarily, until pulled apart.[3] Initially made of cotton, which proved impractical,[4] the fastener was eventually constructed with nylon and polyester.[5]

De Mestral gave the name Velcro, a portmanteau of the French words velour ("velvet") and crochet ("hook"),[6][7] to his invention as well as to the company he founded.

The company continues to manufacture and market the fastening system.

That is somewhat the point. I need more blood flow apparently so my legs don't fall asleep while upright at work. I'm also told compresion pants will do wonder for my bad knee which typfically only a bother on rainy, cold days. Not willing to wear full legging/briefs under my work clothes with the summer heat though.

I prefer the compression leg sleeves/socks. I find them more comfortable to wear for longer.

Yep, compression stockings are what I was about to recommend.

I like riding my bicycle for cardio. It's pretty low impact unless you go doing some crazy shit like moutain biking.

You don't have to ride the stupid shit. I just ride it because.....

Most of my friends and family that ride, ride cross country trails. I am looking at getting into that for the exercise as opposed to going to the gym all the time.

A good compromise would be to take an exercise bike to the mountains.

I really should take up bike riding again, its about the only form of exercise I really enjoy. I don't have much of an excuse either because the combined Silver Comet/Chief Ladiga Trail (94 miles) runs within a short distance of my home.

The last time I rode a bike was when I was 12.

You had the 3-speed!?! Sweet.

I only had the Sting-Ray, but I did have the matching glitter seat, just like this one, well minus the flat tire.
