Last time I was at a park, dude had two big ass dogs following him, running all around. One was way better at following and the other would get fixated on something and just be in some random spot, then realize and start running, almost running into people. The other dog almost ran into people too, the guy seemed oblivious, but I don’t see how anyone could be that oblivious. It was ridiculous.

Dill is way more digestible when you realize he’s pretending to be a fusion of Quentin Tarintino, Gonz, and Dash Snow.

Cats are definitely less work. Unless you got one of those ones that needs to go zoomy and you have to get them a bell when they go outside so they dont eat all the birds. Outdoor cats are trouble to own
We have too many coyotes. Every time someone I know tries to have an outdoor cat it ends in tragedy

Have you ever met a cat? They scratch and bite you out of boredom. You need to put a dog in very stressful situation for anything like that to happen.
Had both, love both, but cats are kinda insane
[close]

Cats are chill as hell and don't care enough to bit or claw you unless you're stressing them out. They don't give a fuck about anything except food and shelter really and therefore their love feels more earned as well.

I feel like it isn’t love as much as it’s just a strategic ploy to ingratiate themselves to that lumbering moron that feeds them and buys them gifts from time to time.  Like some sycophant courtesan sucking up to the king.

Do you think your cat would mourn your death?  Dogs for sure would but a cat would just step over your dead body hoping that someone else comes along to feed it soon.

Ever watch when a cat catches a mouse or a bird and they just play with it and torture it and mutilate it for its own enjoyment?  They’re total psychopaths.  Not hating on cats, I’ve had a few that were awesome, but I think one needs to call a spade a spade.

Some dude brought his iguana to the park the other day. It was cool as hell, but it was just chilling on the ground it could have easily gotten taken out by a rogue board.

That's what animals really are tho. You buy a cat because you want an animal. If you buy a dog because you want something to mourn your death then you're probably just really lonely. Humans, pigs, dolphins, chimpanzees, cats unfortunately there's a pattern of the more intelligent an animal is the more evil it is

This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Skateboarding is nothing but a game to find the right fits to appear like you're a proportional human being instead of a midget or a giant.

 As both a dog and a cat ow er - dogs are much more interactive, they're actually your companion, while a cat is just an unwilling roommate that kinda tolerates you cause you feed them and house them. Being pack-animals, dogs thrive on having a relationship with other members of their pack, i.e. their owner. Cats are thoroughly self-sufficient so people are exilarated when a cat decides that you can pet them for a couple of minutes.

On the other hand, that's why dogs are more dangerous and you have to work with them, which most people don't do, so it leads to shit happening. Also, being able to actually hurt you by their design, unlike cats.

Both really cool, tho, just in different ways.

Thank you. They're both tight/annoying in different circumstances.

Damn what did my drunk ass start the other night... Proud of you guys though. I think I probably agree that I hate overzealous and irresponsible dog owners more than dogs themselves. A well trained, leashed dog I can tolerate, but there are so many shithounds running around off leash and I'm tired of the normalization of dogs everywhere. People around here act like every public park is their dog park when we have leash by-laws and most parks have no dogs allowed signs. The amount of dogshit everywhere during covid lockdowns was enraging also.110 pound women walking unmuzzled pits is another favourite... Oh but they've never bit anyone before... Yeah I'm not trying to roll the dice with my children's safety for your trendy 'rescued' hellhound. I'm happy without any pets currently. Two kids is enough to take care of.

I fully realize the kooks that are going to passed my way because of this, but fuck it.
I’m not a fan of Louie Lopez and feel that while his skating is impressive and I enjoy watching some of it, he is greatly overhyped in my unpopular opinion.
He’s very impressive and extremely talented, but something about his skating misses the mark with me.
Maybe it’s his childlike body? I don’t know, I don’t want to be mean or tear him down, but jus sayin.
Ok, drunk rant over G’night y’all.

Uuuuhhhh, barely remember typing that, but having said what I said, he just doesn’t hit the mark for me.
I feel like I should like him more than I do, but I don’t…

At speed for someone my age is different than Nik Stain. But if the tailslide catches it's easier to jump out of the way and I might fall onto my ass but that has rarely happened. If I slip out by leaning too much my board shoots out but I rarely actually fall when that happens.

Now back board I'll shoot out half the time if it's waxed and hit my ass/back on the rail. I've also caught and nearly taken out my teeth falling onto the rail.

Iguanas are awesome! You can form very close bonds with them if you earn their trust :)

Got a bunch of herniated disc in my back and would also say backside boardslide is one of the last tricks I want to try (backside blunt being the last) altho I've always had a weird thing about backside board, feeble and crooked. I'd rather do any of them frontside, halfcab in or do hurricane, 180 nosegrind. Can't see a situation where I'd personally try a backtail over back board but different people do different things so I'll believe it.
