We get screwed on price on everything over here. Except butter. Butter is better, and cheaper over here. Take that America.

where can I find good but inexpensive nose clips online? Might be cheaper than buying at my local sports shop

I've not tried it, but the forerunner 10 is also waterproof and pretty cheap so might be an option.
My favorite product is Carbo Pro. Unlike maxim it doesn't build up in the gut causing that bloated feeling.
Are either Twinlab Ultra-Fuel (powder) or Gatorlode still being made? The last time I bought either was in 2008.
FYI, Carbo Pro and Maxim are identical substances. Pure maltodextrin, no additives.

Not necessarily. Maltodextrin can have a variable # of glucose molecules in the chain and still be called maltodextrin. (If I remember right, the range is something like 10-30 glucose molecules.) They can have different properties based on the chain length. e.g. a shorter chain will dissolve more readily.
I'm just sayin'...
Hotel towels are the recommended method of removal.
It's always a bad hair day when you work at a pool.
...anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
Anyone ever use one of those "stationary swimmer" belts? The kind where you connect the end to the ladder or the lane line, and then you can swim in place?
I may be left with only a very small pool to swim in soon. Would be very interested in any recommendations you guys have.
