Great reggae style closer from their classic debut album “Outlandos d’amour”, released in 1978.
[..] only one failed the “simple pleasure” test. Most just rode and enjoyed themselves with their colleagues in the day clothes that they wore at the meeting, just as one should when cycle commuting. Just one felt the need to dress up like a complete dork in the high viz vest and helmet that he […]
The last time I read of a similar experiment, it indicated that cars/taxis were the worst for this. Here, being in a car is best.

A darkened and mysterious north polar region informally known as Mordor Macula caps this premier high-resolution portrait of Charon, Pluto’s largest moon. Captured by New Horizons near its closest approach on July 14, the image data was transmitted to Earth on September 21. Always wondered what Pluto and Charon looked like, incredible to actually see […]
