This news relieves the organization of the burden of what Livestrong chief of staff Morgan Binswanger called a "time-sucking" investigation.
Fleecing the faithful followers must be a lot easier when the myth goes unchallenged.

"Fleecing the faithful followers" is the myth, frenchfry.

And even though it is a dumb and hateful myth, so very few people believe it (a few hundred maybe) that it is hardly worth challenging in the first place.

I challenge it because I am procrastinating here at work.
Do you think Lance procrastinates? Doubt it lol.
He probably helped write this article:

Me - maybe I will take the attitude of the late great Douglas Adams:
"I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they go by."

Seriously I think Mr.Sherwood has some autistic core, but I'm missing the Savant. Seems to be more busy with himself than with the work that should actually be done. Spoiled dreamer, or his own (successful) boss. Perhaps both. Or it's those drugs they put into US drinkingwater.
Everyone knows, when it comes to the boss or customer, that a current job should have been finished yesterday. Even finished before boss or customer gave the order.
Why not just do your best all the time and be flexible. Every time. Like our laserlike focused Lance.
Lance should fire him. Mr.Sherwood procrastinating himself out of the job.

Just imagine, customer or boss calls and Mr.Procrastinator is right in the middle of one of his selfprocrastinating 15 minute breaks, which have to follow the strict anti-procrastinating plan.
Deadlines are for idiots. In whatever way.

PS: But that one hint is indeed helpful. Always important to get blood moving.
PPS: Once, when I was young, I did 2,5 years of my report booklets in the night before deadline.
Awesome performance. No procrastinating. Just outstanding.

Polish, how is it possible to procrastinate at your "work" being a bicycle shop?

Thanks for posting that link. There I was, procrastinating by being on the internet instead of working and I followed the link to find out how to stop procrastinating. I never actually got to read the article. Instead, the stress of trying to open the page proved too much for my browser and it crashed. Without the distraction of the internet, I returned to my work (only to return here to post about what happened...).

Back on topic: Cheat, cheat, Lance Armstrong, we hates you, we hates you, we hates you forever!

I was procratinating also, but now Im trying to be more asertive, if thats alright with you.

Back on Topic: We love you Lance, your the greatest and most entertaining to talk about on the net, especially all the haters now hate you more because Novitsky proved your innocence.

This thread reminds me of the barren landscape of the TV series "The Walking Dead", with the fanboys and trolls strolling around like zombies, looking for meals to feast on that are few and far between.

It reminds me of a stadium 2 hours after a game when the only people remaining are the hard core fans still cheering about the victory.

Small group in an empty stadium. Ghosts of Victory still in the air.
Most of the opposing fans are long gone.
Some left early.
ScoreBoard! ScoreBoard!
OneTwoThreeFourFiveSixSeven.
In a Row.

Can't remember one of us dialing "die Null", so tell me, why did you show up anyway ?
