8. You then decided to come back to racing cross and you had to be teammates with me. Is it annoying when I ask you to identify trees while we’re walking around looking for breakfast in some random town?
No. You should do it more often…and remember the answers. Two evergreens that you might lump together as “pine” trees, despite neither of them actually being of the Pinus genus, are no more alike than a full suspension downhill bike is to your 16lb road racing bike. These things are far more important than you realize. The natural world is our origins. We all ought to know something about it if we are to have any wisdom at all about our path forward.
