I do love how he keeps baselessly accusing that diver who helped save all those kids in Thailand of being a pedophile.

Love him or hate him, it's fascinating to see his empire grow.
The boul did co-find paypal so big ups Elon. I'm sure he would be a skater.

If a hypothetical movie happened based on him, who would play him? I'm noticing all of his little eye twitches and eye brow raises; they're great

I learned a lot about Elon during that podcast. Never even heard him speak before that. On one hand I thought he was funny, especially during the flamethrower stuff, and at other times I was confused by weird periods of silence and how he dodged Rogan about who to talk to when you're trying to build tunnels under LA.

SPOILER ALERT...

Some skaters make stupid money. Just saw the episode of King of the Road where they announced the winners. Honestly, yeah, Element had the most points, but did they need the money? Absolutely not. Real, those guys are fine. I was really rooting for Foundation. I think everyone's heard how they're hurting. I'm sure getting some money would have been cool. At least so Merlino doesn't have to do Uber for a while. I even thought that it would be cool for someone to start a gofundme or kickstarter to raise $5,000 for those guys. They deserve it.

That might be a nice bonus, but theres no amount of money you could realistically raise that would help those guys in the long run. What they need is a brand that people want to buy. Just having a good team doesnt mean people are going to buy your products.

Foundation hasn't been popular in 15 years. I say dump it and start something new that might have a shot at competing with the brands actually selling products. Same could be said about a lot of early 00s brands still trying to hang on.

why is there that diamond shaped cut out in the heel of my shoes?
Just to show off that there is some foam in there?
I landed primo and my axle nut hit directly in that hole, resulting is a serious heel bruise.

Perfect.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.

That diver who Elon Musk accused of being a pedophile, is suing him, and being represented by the same lawyer as Richard Jewell (a security guard who was falsely accused of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing) was during his libel trials.

A lot of those NYTimes Retro videos are interesting and worth watching too.

Those guys must make something for just being on KOTR.  They're providing 10-12 episodes of content for Vice. 

That might be a nice bonus, but theres no amount of money you could realistically raise that would help those guys in the long run. What they need is a brand that people want to buy. Just having a good team doesnt mean people are going to buy your products.

They would evaluate the impact that the accusation had on your life, see that it affected your earning potential a fat fucking zero percent, and order you to pay the billionaire's legal fees. Then he'd run you over in his electric car in front of the courthouse and not even get a ticket.

Andrew Allen is a living legend and must be protected.

On a similar note, is there a way to make pluralized words even more plural?
