Hi, I’m Manu.

I used to have a blog a couple of years ago. I have to admit that I missed it a little, so I decided to go back at it in 2014. I write about a bunch of different topics.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, or plothole is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot, or constitutes a blatant omission of relevant information regarding the plot, sometimes even contradicting itself. These include such things as unlikely behaviour or actions of characters, illogical or impossible events, events happening for no apparent reason, or, statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Here are a couple of links if you want to know more about me:

And last but not least, here is my resume.

Thanks for reading.

N.B. this site has been tested on the most recent versions of Safari and Chrome on Mac OS X, as well as Safari on iOS. If something seems broken on one of those browsers, shoot me an email. If you’re using another browser, I’m sorry. I don’t find fixing browser quirks very interesting, I do enough of it professionnally.

double backbreaking

c’est à ma connaissance la seconde fois qu’un pro de bmx se fracture la nuque en faisant un double backflip. Après Chad Kagy, qui s’en est sorti indemne, voilà que Stephen Murray s’est viandé sur cette figure. Aux dernières nouvelles, il est toujours dans un état incertain. J’étais aux X-Games à Philly quand il a plaqué ses premiers doubles backflips en compétition. C’est vrai qu’il s’agit d’une figure impressionnante, mais je la trouve un peu moche, tout comme les autres doubles combos (double tailwhip, 720, double barspin, etc.), et visiblement elle est un peu dangereuse. J’espère qu’il va s’en remettre…
