No way anyone can claim that.

Is there a score for all 5+billion people in the world? :rolleyes:


There ain't no evidence....
Good to know at least some people can see obvious arrogance.

I don't see how God has anything to do by favoring him to win over the other christian riders. So Lance is telling the truth in that aspect.

Someone could just enlighten me with this-- how does God particularly helps people wins awards? I see this people say after receiving an award, "first of all I like to thank God... mom, dad, the poodle...." Did God really favor a particular celebrity to win the Grammy over the another???

Ok, I guess I got so focused on making my point that I didn't take into account that Garbad's statement cannot be proven with 100% accuracy. Fine, you got me with that one.

However, that does not change the fact that Lance Armstrong should not be considered a braggart since his statement cannot be refuted. He stated what he believed to be the truth. The evidence backs him up.

Like I said in a previous post, how come nobody blames God when they lose?

I am smarter than at least 99% of the world population. Bragging or no?

If you still believe that an IQ test is a reliable measure of intelligence that alone makes your entire statement a paradox. And no, it's not bragging, unless you're trying to brag about how misinformed you are, which again would be somewhat odd, since for it to be a boastful statement, said statement would have to include some claim to posess a desireable quality, no?

I thought that somewhere under all the rest there was some point to this thread... found it! So Lance is back in the lead and I think he'll stay there. Isn't he going to retire after this one?

Wish him luck, be nice to go out on a high...

Those'd better be beers !

Nope! They're three "famous" col's in the Tour de France. Aren't you Belgians supposed to be cycling-freaks?

Oh, and a "col" is a sort of "route over a mountain".... :p

Nonono, a "col" is the foam on top of a beer. And I'm not intrested in watching sports :p

@KnightFall: You gotta admit, those are nice names for a beer !

I work 10 minutes from the beach (in the Hague) so if the weather stays this way, I'll head on out to the sea with a couple of mates of mine in about 4 hours......

The only advantage of my work-place...... Scheveningen-beach! :cool:


Hang in there pal; we're on "hump-day" already! :)

I also like to brag about being an asshole. What part of the definition says it must be desirable or an exaggeration?

And who said anything about IQ? I didn't.

Never signed up. I went to a meeting once though and it was funny. Mensa is where the nerds go to escape bullies and the mere mention of bully behavior sends them into a panic. I said I played 3 sports in high school and people were trying to stuff themselves into lockers to avoid me.

Uhh....... but enough OT-ing. Vino has a good day (better then yesterday at least!). He got over the Madeleine in fourth place. The peloton are 1.13 behind.

It's early yet, and I doubt that Lance will let a rider of his ability get too far ahead.

No, not too far but Vino is 5,18 behind.... so a couple of minutes won't harm him.
