Hmm, this is the first reported case I've heard of someone getting kicked out by a robot.

I made a post about facial recognition in November.

http://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=97418

I'd assume the robot you encountered has the capability to take photos of  / record humans it interacts with, then upload those photos / footage to a web server. In other words, it's slowly building a database of "criminals". More data for the property owner to use against you. Tough to deny it's your first time visiting a spot when there is photo evidence of you being there previously.


One of the wildest things to me is how normal and calm people are about facial recognition. Between snapchat filters, facebook automatically detecting peoples faces and tagging people, and even the new iphones with those emoji face things. I'm all for technology improving lives and making shit easier, but even some shit kinda phases me out with just HOW good it is.

So if these robots are actually compiling a database of faces and shit, might be time to break out the tinfoil hat and go live in the middle of the woods in a cabin.

It's time to break out the ski masks.

I heard the barrier Kult is moving to NYC

soon it will be a robot dog w/ a gun for a paw and it'll embed sensors in your skin so other robot dogs will run you up a tree or drive behind you at high rates of speed.


could you imagine this thing barrelling after you?
If it's programmed to stop skaters, wouldn't it make a lot more sense to the CPU's OS to kill all humans, that would stop skating a lot more efficiently, right?

That robot has more hops than I do :(

Why has OP not replied on how the robot kicked him out? Did it just talk shit until you left?

Also we can throw cups of water on the robots, but they are going to having bathes of rice every night (naked to)

Obviously he wasn’t landing any tricks and the robot was kicked him out to prevent him (or any human) from coming to harm as is it’s directive

Hi, I left on my own before the robot really had a chance to kick me out. I did not even have my board with me. I was just walking around looking for spots. All the ledges were already knobbed and there were just a few sets of stairs. I saw the robot off in the distance and thought it was a cleaning robot at first. It started rolling towards me and I saw a "Security" tag on its front. It kinda freaked me out and I just walked the other way back to my car and left.
Maybe tomorrow, I will bring a camera with me, go back and let it go thru the whole routine.

My homie's been on that, bought a bunch of 10 inch rectangular planks and started cutting his own shapes. Rode his board yesterday, shit was mad comfy and had some crispy pop.

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down.

It's just a big rolling camera. It's cheaper in the long term and less liability coverage for the property owners. A robot isn't going to flip out when a 14 year old won't stop skating and break their collar bone. There's still some loser on the other end of it, they aren't autonomous AI killbots yet.

Stay out of view of the camera and shoot it with a super soaker.

Relapses to regain core status
Trendwatch threads
Olympic team/army threads

Seriously though. The trend I don't want to see, but it's already here and happening is, the closing of locals that always seemed to be invincible.

Dudes usually stop skating after relapsing, and we’ve had yearly Trendwatch threads for a while.

Edit:
Also, the trend seems to be more towards going healthy and sober...not a bad trend to have.

Millencollin was a bad choice in my opinion and not a true representation of how good pop punk can be. they were 3rd rate at best. A kid born in 2000 (or somewhere thereabouts) obviously has no clue though

There's this self check out little market thing in my office for snacks and drinks and shit, and you can either swipe your card like a normal person who is being tracked by banks or GIVE THEM YOUR FINGERPRINT to set up an account and deposit cash. People just do it. Give the cash register your fingerprint so you can have some oreos at 9am. Why does it need your goddamn fingerprint and why don't they think that's crazy? Total insanity.

One just needs to adopt the LD look when going skating downtown and will still be able to turn up on the block 10 toes



Or simply do this
