Iceland has already accomplished as much as I could have wanted in the #WorldCup ... by embarrassing Tiger Woods commentators ... shit ... I meant Lionel Messi commentators.

I had a dream it would end this way...laying in a ditch covered in mud and grass, bleeding profusely. Little was I aware that no enemies stood over me but, race promoters. According to the Spartan Race officials, this was their most destructive course yet devised. Built into a ski slope, not one distance held level ground. Immediately you were confronted with a slope to the top that scavenged my subpar cross country training for salt. I find need to hail excuses such as the 3 hours of sleep following 6 hours of work the night before, the improper diet pre-race and inadequate gear, but the truth laid bare when combating grades like this that training was my Achilles'. However, for every distance lost on the hike, I gained on the obstacle. An array of jungle gym accessories were keen to my skill set of agility...sans for one. A Home Depot 5 gallon bucket, gravel and that god damned slope. There was no sweet spot to be found on that ascent. A worthy mention as well to the 36 meter uphill mud and barbed wire crawl followed by (two further ascents and) a downhill ice barbed wire crawl. 1 hour and 7 minutes later I was assaulted by 3 guards of the gates (see video) which now has me here clutching my side, not in agony but as humbled. Succinctly, a worthy contention for the competitive and those seeking mental merits. I come away with assertions to improve. [Photographs: Daniela Travaglini]

Business Card No. 18
Having exhausted fifteen long years into a near American Psycho-esk state over the development of a functional, multi-purposed business card; we have arrived at our first successful destination.

Portability, identity and encased within a near limitless supply, the pocket stamp with our personalized internet dialogue (search?q=Tv+Miller) has become our "Ace of Spades". Applicable anywhere and should further information be necessary, an impersonal, old-fashioned, unfeigned, hand written note will suffice. [Vistaprint Pocket Stamp $11.24 ea. #shill]

When exiting a building or accessing a lane of traffic from a street, you must observe the same rules applied in Part V.

Upon exiting a doorway you must:

1. Stop.
2. Look both directions regardless of intent.
3. Yield to all traffic.
4. Enter your lane of travel at an acceptable velocity as to not compromise other pedestrians.

This course of action applies as well to entrance from a street or automobile parked adjacent to a walkway.

Lane possessors must cautiously accommodate impediments such as doors or sublevel access points.
