Not very articulate, but it’s usually the last thing I say when I lose all forward momentum on a steep climb because my back wheel is just spinning. The next expletive is directed towards spds if I haven’t managed to unclip in time…I_did_dabSubscriber
We are told* that Eskimo’s have hundreds of words for snow so we really should be more descriptive.Posted 4 years ago
Here’s some I thought of:
Minestrone – mostly water with bits in
Porridge – sloppy mud and leaf mulch
Readybrek – see above but finer texture
Plasticene – good for tyre tracks

The claim that Eskimo languages have an unusually large number of words for snow is a widespread idea first voiced by Franz Boas and often used as a cliché when writing about how language may keep us more or less alert to the differences of the natural world. In fact, the Eskimo–Aleut languages have about the same number of distinct word roots referring to snow as English does.Posted 4 years ago
