When watching a cycling video of someone riding up a steep climb, the camera angle is slanted to make the climb look even steeper.

Hello, the trees in the back ground are also angled.

On a cool day you've been riding for a bit, but have to get out of the saddle to put a bit of extra effort up a hill.

Is there a name for the feeling you get when you sit down again on the now chilled, slightly sweaty seat area of your shorts/trousers?

Yes. It's to "grouble".

"Virenque there, dances out of the saddle and he's away here with clear daylight on Alpe de'Huez with a good lead, but nobody seems singularly motivated to go with him. With no clear threat from the big men, he settles in to grouble for a while while the chasing pack reorganise".
(Phil Liggett, 1992).

I was thinking more of the feeling of sitting back down and finding what was previously a warm area is now a slightly damp, cold spot for a few seconds (before body heat returns it back to normal!)

A new station called Birmingham TV has begun broadcasting on Freeview channel 7. Apart from a few news programs its output consists entirely of crime documentaries. Why?

Going up hills, very slowly...

Not only yuk, but, on my last ride, noisy! Every time I shifted back in nthe saddle, the dampness combination of me and the saddle made a low moaning noise. Thought something was loose, but no...
:crazy:
 
Nursing staff who when doling out medication take any pill from a pack so you end up with all sorts of bits. My wife was on 12 different meds a day and when she came out of hospital it took me days to sort out the mess and discover what had to be reordered. Cards of pills were spread out all over the floor as I tried to make sense of it.
