Bears in slippers and boots on cats would make a pretty cool beat box beat.

I bet all pro skaters can do a handstand on a moving skateboard and a flatground backflip. That's the basic level of athleticism you need to be a pro.

Do you think Duane Peters can do a kickflip?

Haven't really been skating as of late. I want to but the weather and my schedule has been busy. Ya'll ever just take breaks for medium to long amounts of time? During the summer I was skating almost everyday but now I get lucky if I can fit in one day a week.

That's the only way I know of. They're probably getting your messages but just not responding.

Why be loyal to skate brands, or any brand , when they will replace you with the next big thing as soon as you get injured? All while also not offering any benefits outside free merchandise.

Donít sponsored skaters get sick of wearing/skating the same shit all the time?  Seems like itíd be a little bit of a bummer not being able to switch up trucks or woodshops if you felt like it.

I know it doesnít rank very high in the pantheon of all the possible hardships a person might have to endure and is the pretty much the definition of a ďfirst world problemĒ... Itíd still be kind of annoying though.

I guess one of the benefits of being doo-doo at skating is that no one gives a fuck what trucks Iím riding... so I guess I dodged that bullet.

Why do airports still use carousels? They suck and there has to be a better way.

You donít like them?  I think theyíre kinda fun.  Itís like you get to play a little carnival game after a long, boring flight.

But then again Iím kinda simple.

One of my greatest regrets is that I never sat on a carousel and high-fived all the bewildered passengers as I rolled past to celebrate the fact that we're still alive. Maybe if I give that a whirl next time then I'll start to appreciate them more.

Is it possible to describe what different colors look like to someone that has been blind from birth?

Is this Josh Stewart editing skate footage in an Adobe ad they run on Twitch? Or do I have prosopagnosia?

I was just reading up on failure neurosis online and first thing, I pondered how frequent and widespread this has to be in professional skateboarding.

A simple definition I found, although there are sharper sources on the subject:

Quote
The failure neurosis can also express itself in a collective enterprise, such as when someone suddenly throws himself headlong into conflict with another, immobilizing the joint effort, or when a person decides to leave a cooperative, knowing very well that her departure will produce a crisis that will damage the success of the work.

The failure neurosis also manifests when, once the work is produced, one retrospectively demolishes it, perhaps by falling into a deep depression, or by sabotaging whatever is left to sabotage, like the publicity that will carry the project to the world.

The failure neurosis expresses itself as an indefinable malaise, feelings of guilt, the notion that one is ugly or incompetent in spite of all objective proof to the contrary. In extreme cases, the person kills himself or sinks into madness after having attained his goal.

The reason Zuckerberg will never do anything of consequence to spam or troll accounts is because it's part of his business model.

He has low cost troll farms built up offshore hired as a large scale astroturfing outfit. Along with making money from targeted ads, facebook is paid to target users to be trolled by the right department of trolls or to be fed a predetermined diet of propaganda.

For the truly simple minded and friendless, they are really interacting with nothing more than simplified AI that does nothing more than feed them a steady (though limited) diet of likes.

There are duplicates of your account being run by AI that you are blocked from seeing so you never see your digital doppleganger.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.
