    Slight typo guys – $1M AUD (£500,000, USD720M).

    Digging into the paincave – the psychology of suffering – link not working for me?

  • A soccer player came third in China?

      Seems like just a natural progression in sock length to me. This guy is just a little ahead of the curve.

        The Sydney Coluzzi buch of overweight oldies will be all over it, “full euro pro, bro”

        I already rock full stockings. So euro.

      Glad I’m not the only one wondering why that dude’s friends didn’t say, “Man, you look awful. Take those off.”

    That Vulpine thing is nuts. The valuation is ambitious, and that’s putting it very kindly.

      Apt comment. I don’t know, but crowd funding seems to fit a product that has some moral value and can’t get funding through the normal channels because it’s unconventional or new or just too risky. This is just another commercial venture, but its capital raising strategy is to get money based on fluffy spin rather than relevant financial information in a prospectus. Not a good inclusion in the Daily Digest IMHO.

      • It wasn’t an asked for or paid for item in today’s Daily Digest, just supporting a brand who is having a go. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if it’s worthwhile or not.

          I never assumed that CT had been paid money, that wasn’t the point of my critical comment.

        Don’t know a lot about this but this isn’t crowdfunding in the usual model. It is a crowd sourced capital raising where you are purchasing shares in the company (which most crowdfunding sites don’t allow or provide for), so it’s crowdfunded venture capital. Once you subscribe to the site you get access to financial information, etc, and from what I can tell it is tied into the UK investment regulatory system (again unlike crowdfunding sites in general).

    That RAAM dude seems a tad tired

    I can understand people running marathons, 24 hour bike races, Ironman races etc – but there are some things I’ll simply never be able to understand.
    Race Across America is – and always will be – one of them
    Fastest ever time is 7 days, 15 hours… Average speed > 26 kph…. for 7 days and nights straight – That’s just insane…..

    • And the TransAmerica and TransContinental are even more nuts. They go on for over 15 days at 300-400km/day!

    Phil Gaimon back in the pro ranks with Garmin for 2016! Coooooookiesssss

  • Winky

    The RAAM dude was very unlucky to contract AMS. The passes over the Rockies don’t really go very high. I’d think AMS would be very rare at those altitudes.

    Tour of China II is OK, but I much prefer the original. I heard the reboot might be OK, too.
