On most Stack Exchange sites, jQuery is served from the Google CDN:

<script type="text/javascript"
 src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js">
</script>

On Blog Overflow sites, jQuery is served from the site directly. Not only that, it's served from each *.blogoverflow.com subdomain directly, instead of from a central location. This means that whenever a user visits a different SE blog, they have to redownload the jQuery script all over again.

<script type='text/javascript'
 src='http://bicycles.blogoverflow.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.7.1'>
</script>

For performance reasons, the blog overflow template should be altered to use the Google CDN version of jQuery.
