The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #146: Spheristics
One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives for movement and action, their relations,
their work and leisure activities, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.
It's a bike ride.
Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.
It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.
We'll endeavor to return before the last red line trains (around midnight).
On the third year of this bike ride, you might expect:
- more inconvenient passageways
- more full moon picnics
- perhaps more "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- certainly more amateurish enthusiasm
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- dance parties
- imaginary histories
- scavenging for fun and sustenance
- more geocaching
- more oblique strategies
- more Oulipian constraints
- traffic median tea parties
- A medium pace (maybe not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- We're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light.
- 0.25 miles
- Victory donuts!
Exercise 1.--Throwing a projectile or ball which can held in the fingers. The ball being placed on the ground at
short distance from the feet, the words of command are:
1. Take the ball in the right hand (or left)!
2. In position!
3. Throw! One!
At the first words of command, the pupil stoops, takes the ball in his right hand, and resumes his position. At
the second, he throws the right foot about twenty inches behind the left, and the right hand about eight inches
behind the ear; the left arm being allowed to fall naturally with the hand near the left thigh. At the third, the pupil
takes aim, throwing the right arm quickly forward, and then resumes the position of the second. At the fourth,
he repeats this movement. At the fifth and last, he performs the same movement but with all his force throws
the ball forward, stretching his right leg and pressing the ground with his toes; he then resumes his first
position. Throwing with the left hand is performed in a similar manner. Fig. 33.
Yes, we are going to Shatto Lanes for some bowling and/or playing pool this week, because, you know, rain
