    After two years, I am finally ready to launch my cycling apparel company CNOCs (pronounced knocks).* I am using Kickstarter to get things going.* * If nothing piques your interest, you can still contribute by passing the link on to your network.*

    My goal is to have a combination of high quality technical materials in well made, stylish products. I am interested in producing gear designed for specific purposes, wind resistance for blustery days, secure pockets to stash license and cash, pads that protect your other valuables, and reflective material and zippers where you need them.

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cnocs/cnocs-cycling-apparel-launch

    Thanks Matt

    My Cat has a Pavlovian response to Deli paper. I pull that schit out of the fridge and he gets to aggressive to reward him with a taste.

    A friend of mine was taking care of a red nosed pit-bull for about a year or so until the owner could sort out his relocation to a county in FL with a ban on pit-bulls. Anyway we did a lot of grilling and slow smoking pork butts and the dog always got some. It got to the point that when we walked into the house with shopping bags she would freak out. We even had to start spelling out p-o-r-k in front of her like a child cause she understood what we were talking about.

    When her owner came to take her to FL, she wouldn't fit into her harness anymore.


    Oh, you know those giant pork ribs that come from large hogs that are about 8-10 in long, she could swallow those things whole. Made a rather disturbing vacuum sound.

    My dog's two favorite foods are Brussels sprouts and butternut squash. Any time he sees or smells them he sits at the vey edge of the kitchen (he gets nothing if he comes into the kitchen) and drools. Massive amounts of drool. There will be solid streams of it running from his mouth all the way to the floor.

    Strange little guy.

    If my dog even so much as senses the cosmic vibrations of a zip lock bag opening he is directly behind me undetected seated and staring up like some kind of hitchockian murderer.

    it's creepy how he knows, even dead asleep.

    A neighbor's cat loved asparagus and green beans. Weird, but that was Asheville, where even pets are hipster vegans.

    my ex and i had a cat that refused to eat tuna, but grinded on some tofu and rice. He was all black and named Sabbath and was not metal at all, although he did **** the other male cat constantly.

    I've never had a dog but I'm starting to want one. Does anybody have suggestions on a good starter breed?

    My tomcat will only eat dairy as treats. Ice cream, cheese, sour cream anything dairy. When you open the milk jug, he comes running from the other side of the house and slides into the kitchen.

    Both of our cats exercise mind control on Hilarie and me. A large and healthy coy dog crossed the road in front of me on my way to work today. I have always wanted some cargo pants with a panel to access a tactical holster on my right leg.

    My dogs have eaten so many apples this year, I've stopped feeding them at all and they are still fat like big sausages.

    A deer jumped the fence to get INTO the dog park last night. Fletcher about **** himself with excitement chasing that thing around. He caught it when it hit the fence. THANK GOD I had a shock collar on him and was able to zap him before he went for the neck.

    When I first started at the airline a Brasilia (turboprop) hit a deer on the runway in Bend. You can imagine the mess. :bad:

    Some dogs like bananas. It's pretty funny watching them try it for the first time. You can see their brain going...

    I think that no women's clothes would be an excellent idea, but sort of tough on them in winter.

    I always cook my pork tenderloin on the grill. Crispy outside, juicy inside, and leftovers sliced thin for pork sammiches.

    MMMMM, my favorite is some nice hawaian(?) slow cooked chicken, but you guys have inspired me to try the recipe on pork. I will share my results here in the future.

    Perhaps he requires free range and organic products? Sometimes this can be confused with retardism.
