      Haha! That’s some old school hip hop, I think I still have that cassette in a shoe box somewhere. I always liked Posse on Broadway and Iron Man. This was also about the time I discovered De La Soul and Tribe, the top 2 best hip hop bands of all time.

    • Emily D. says:

      ohhhhh….loved some De La Soul!

      I had the Sir-Mix-A-Lot tape on rewind constantly ..mixed with some Fat Boys 🙂

    • Aaron says:

      Awesome, love me some Disorderlies!

    • Kerri says:

      The Fat Boys tape, ‘Crushin’, was my first ever ‘explicit lyrics’ tape I owned…..And, had to hide it in my nightstand so my Mom wouldn’t find it… Ah, the days of elementary school!

      What part of the Greenway were you running on? That’s only about 1/4 mile from my house.

    • Aaron says:

      I hit the section by Challenger/McGucken Park. My parents live nearby and I can get about a 0.5 mi warm up running from their house and entering the Greenway through McGucken.

    WTF, this has to be the most retarded article. I’m still not clear on what this professor’s experiment is trying to prove.
