    I don’t get the picture. Were you one of those poor kids whose overly protective mothers make them wear bike helmets when they’re walking around the block?Report

    I love walking. All I can say for sure about it is that there is a life stage in which you have to leave behind Converse All Stars forever. Clearly, the Ramones did not do a lot of walking.Report

      Ugh, I miss my All Stars. Now it’s Sketchers and sandals for me. Sandals are pretty much a necessity for summer walking here.Report

        Have you tried skate shoes? (Skate board shoes, that is.)Report

          I learned from the younger sprout, who would literally burn through clothing doing the stuff he did: clothes made for riding sports — snowboard or skateboard — are made tough and last.

      Heh. I wore AllStars from all the way thru High School. Loved ’em. Then I discovered comfortable shoes.Report

    So I picked up Civ IV.

    The last time I played Civilization, it didn’t have a number after it.

    What should I do to start with? Extra large? Extra small? Ice Age? Tropical?Report
