Sex before Marriage

Did you wait until your wedding day to have intercourse with your partner?
Here's the latest stats on who is abstaining ....

3%  wait to have sex after they are married ( and actually do manage )
How much is 3%? Think of a dance with 100 people in attendance.
3 abstained until they said I do.


Deeply religious people are better at waiting... 20% do wait.


Do you think your parents waited?
While it was more encouraged and expected to wait than it is today, statistics say from 1954-1963, about 11% waited.
And from 1994 to 2003, 3% waited.


There's a new way of thinking, and I must clarify for the older audience, that the sex statistics here, are for intercourse ( penis in vagina). Young women, who have had oral and/or anal sex, but no intercourse, do consider themselves virgins; and indeed, in the sense of the word, they are.

Different bicycle materials

Steel
easiest to work with, wide range of characteristics that are fairly easily modified. Modern steel bikes can be made almost as light as any other frame material. A finely-crafted steel bike has a ride quality that other frame materials aspire to.
Aluminum
one of the lightest materials, but often judged to be a harsh ride - especially for smaller riders. To compensate for this, tubes made of aluminum are often oversized. This allow for a thinner-walled tube, with a nicer ride quality, while maintaining strength. Can be more difficult to weld than steel.
Titanium
formerly thought of as an exotic material, titanium is lighter than steel, and has a slightly better strength/mass ratio. Also has a slightly softer road feel than steel, which makes it a great choice for a bike you're planning on riding long distances. Much more difficult to weld than steel. Not subject to corrosion, so a titanium frame can be a lifetime investment.
Carbon
all bikes we think of as being "carbon fiber" are really carbon fiber impregnated resin. That is to say, plastic. Carbon fiber is an extremely lightweight material, and has superior vibration damping and stiffness, which makes it possible to have a very comfortable bike that is also very efficient at power transfer. Because of the cost involved in making molds, most carbon fiber bikes are stock, not custom.
Bamboo
        Some of the main features of bamboo designs are vibration damping, crash tolerance, and the natural look of the bike.

Studies on Cycling


  • According to research from the University of North Carolina, people who cycle for 30 minutes, five days a week take about half as many sick days as couch potatoes.
  • Studies from Purdue University in the US have shown that regular cycling can cut your risk of heart disease by 50 percent.
  • According to the British Heart Foundation, around 10,000 fatal heart attacks could be avoided each year if people kept themselves fitter. Cycling just 20 miles a week reduces your risk of heart disease to less than half that of those who take no exercise, it says.
  • A study of 200 people carried out by the University of Bristol found that employees who exercised before work or at lunchtime improved their time and workload management, and it boosted their motivation and their ability to deal with stress.
  • Regular, everyday cycling has huge benefits and it basically costs nothing. No membership costs ! According to the National Forum for Coronary Heart Disease Foundation in the US, regular cyclists enjoy a fitness level equal to that of a person who’s 10 years younger.
