Useful, but as I grew up, "sport weight" is (US) 3-ply, equivalent to CYC (Craft Yarn Council) #3 yarn. #1 is fingering, #2 is what we used to call "baby yarn" (which was meant as a weight, rather than pastel colors and easy-care fabrication). "DK" is mostly meaningless with respect to vintage US patterns.
As we stock yarns from around the world, they're not all manufactured to the same standard weights. Elizabeth Bagwell explains the different terms. Yarn we

Honking can startle and distract cyclists into moves that are unsafe for both them and the impatient motorists behind them. We can hear your engines and see the halos of your headlights! Give us the room to start, stop, and maneuver safely, and we will ALL get where we're going in one piece!

First thought: would these make weekend warriors able to finish a marathon, for example? If so, would they be considered performance -enhancing drugs for the purpose of competitive sports (the Olympics, for example, or any WADA - World AntiDoping Authority -controlled sport? 
Second: what would be the cost and availability of these pills? Would they be so expensive that only the "leisure class" (which has the time and money to exercise) can afford them? Would they be prescription-only, and prescribed only to those individuals who have a medical issue preventing them from exercising (advanced arthritis, MS, Parkinson's, etc.)? Would they be covered by health insurance -- and if so, under what conditions?
Third: what are the side-effects -- both short- and long-term. So many "short-cut" medications have turned out to have side-effects worse than the issues they've tried to solve (think "Fen Phen")?

Of course, it doesn't hurt that the public face of American politics, and mainstream news media, actively fan the flames of terrorism concern: it sells papers, elects politicians, and allows them to aggressively strip away our civil liberties, thereby escalating any individual's risk of being a victim of physical or mental violence, rather than someone who can actively limit the aggressor's damage.
Terrorism has won an apparently permanent space in the American mind.

Well-written note on where and how evidence-based medicine fails, and how doctors need to be able to interpret and adapt clinical guidelines to the needs of individual patients

His solution: cyclists have to stop halfway back of the corner where they can't be seen, and can't move until all other traffic is off the road. NO. Trucks do NOT deserve priority on the road #leastvulnerableuser  Also, aren't most trucks in urban areas restricted as to the hours during which they may travel and make deliveries?
Three days after a truck driver was charged in the death of an Ottawa cyclist, the head of the Greater Ottawa Truckers Association is defending truck drivers, saying bikes shouldn't have been made equal to trucks on the road.

Just viewed Spectre. Cool opening graphics, plus homages to many previous Bond films. Spectre reboot/prequel for the 21st century, bringing together the previous three Daniel Craig Bond films.

This place has closed. Previously, it was the area's "cheap" cleaner at about $2/garment and always busy. Disappointed that it has completely closed down.

Not sure why the negative reviews. It's a reasonable place to go if you need to see a doctor quickly, without an appointment. As with any group, you'll get some doctors who are better than others. Had only one major insurance issue with them in over 10 years. That said, most of the time I'm dealing with one of the doctors who has regular appointment hours. It took a few visits to build the relationship, but it's been time well invested.
