Did I give my cat depression? When I felt depressed he was feeling low too and now when I'm feeling better he is more active and playful. 

pets pick up on your mood for sure.  well, dogs certainly.  i expect cats also.  dont feel bad about it though, theyre there for you like youre there for them

i dreamt last night i was in a room with richie jackson and i was annoyed he was hogging a joint.  he smoked two thirds before offering me any, but i declined incase he had covid and also i dont smoke weed anymore.
then he stubbed it out on a fillet of salmon(skin side down) and placed the remainder of the joint in an ashtray, next to another butt he had smoked two thirds of.
idk why i thought of richie jackson, i never think about richie jackson.  was probably the jamie griffin crazy tricks talk.
salmon was skin side down because i guess thats what any reasonable person would do.

I turned on the tv and saw that Nigel got attacked by a naked man in his bathroom.

Shits kinda crazy. Nor does the story make much sense. Why this kind of damage control? I hope he’s good. Anxiety after a trauma is a bitch. Does feel like dying

Why are ghosts depicted wearing clothing? How does clothing become supernatural? Seems like ghosts should all be naked.

Pretty sure that’s covered somewhere in here.

-

Have we (humans), through all the wars and violence throughout history, inadvertently selected to increase the relative amount of pussies in the population as a whole?

You gotta figure that a lot of the people laying dead on a battlefield were some brave mother fuckers.  Whole bunch of dead brave guys.  Then another war eventually happens and more of the society’s brave mother fuckers charge into battle and get killed, and again and again and again for generations.

Meanwhile all the cowardly dudes are back home making arrows or farming or whatever in relative safety, making them far less likely to die than some bad ass warrior charging straight into the enemy’s frontline.

Maybe it’s balanced out by the fact that in general, most women would find the super brave guy much more attractive than the pussy.  And there’s also the fact that if the enemy ever successfully broke through to the town or city that there’s a good chance that they’d just go ahead and kill all the civilians.  Who knows

I predict this is the last year of sls. The thing that was just on maybe isn't the best example because it was at the primative park but looks like Cariuma and monster don't even sponsor it anymore. Every year the courses have gotten smaller and simpler. I predict in 2023 it will just be some bland Olympic qualifier series

It would be better if there were only 6days a week and 12 months of 30days. Altho you then get 5 weeks per month which doesn't divide by 12 nicely everything is still cleaner. The year will just be 360 days then we can do one of the new 6 day weeks as a holiday if we need
366. Or make first of every other month a day off.

Should we really be “playing devil’s advocate” so casually in discussion?  I mean think about what you’re saying; from what I hear, he’s a pretty fucked up dude.

Ok, I just need to write this somewhere.  It's been bouncing around in my head and I just need to send it out somewhere to be able to get some context / free my head of it.  I know I sound like a 15 year old smoking weed for the first time, but fuck it.

We tend to think we can fix our evolution & live forever, but in reality we're just coming to the end of our run or preparing for an evolutionary event.  Our entire societies fabric is made up of mining, which is ethically fucked and using finite resources. We're not giving up our iPhones even though children in the Congo are dying for them, but we'll use metal straws and reusable bags at our shopping centres.  The real problem is in production to sustain this life and our need to have it and our ability to ignore the cost for the end product.  The only way we'll straighten our course is to stop production of most things that fuel our lives these days and to go back to pre technological times, but that can't / wont happen.

This is our evolution.  We're creating self learning AI at a quickening rate, and our needs will deplete the earth sooner or later while recreating ourselves into oblivion. Our dire narcissism.  We have access to all the information now to understand everything, but it's just overwhelming.  Add in the warming of our planet, and it's a one way trip.  The billionaires know it, hence the space ships and looking to protect their legacies on a new planet one day.  A dying planet shoots spores out to the cosmos in a hope to extend our existence.  In Scifi, you'd think that guy who jettisons from an exploding planet is the last hope of a civilisation, but living in it you know it's some billionaire pig who added to our extinction in a final selfish act.  In simple terms, we're just a virus that's in it's final mutations.  People seem to think the style of life we have lead in the last 70 to 100 years is everything we are.

So it's not something to fix, it's something to come to terms with.  Not saying we shouldn't try, but i'm beginning to see it all as futile as flicking boogers against a speeding car hoping to stop it. 

Somehow, this gives me hope or at least some peace to the never ending barrage of noise & doom that we're confronted with these days, and it's only hard because we've had a pretty fuckin easy run.

Having a kid really smashes these thoughts into your being, but i'm starting to feel more like 'im so glad you're here and we get to experience life together' than gut wrenching guilt for bringing her into this shitshow.

Ok, peace.

I don't believe the zillionares actually want to live on another planet. I think they want to figure out how to leave the earth for a period of time while something happens and wipes most of the rest of humanity out and then they can return. Covid was just a test.
(I don't actually believe this it's just lolz)

Danny Jones is one of my favorite skaters on instagram. He’s also I think he’s the most skilled remive guy in my eyes. Also he’s hella lucky to have a lady friend who can do a bunch of nollie and switch stuff. How lucky can you get?

But yeah people think it’s John hill or giger Johnny but Jonesy’s doing nothing but manuals all the time and they are usually ones I just couldn’t do or never have or will try.

He makes me wanna tighten my back  truck a little and Torture myself at the Manny pad till I focus my face in disgrace.

I luv manuals. I love manuals and he deserves to have a positive post on slap for being a genuine manny underboss.

All the bosses are my age.

I’m putting together an 8” board today specifically for manuals and stuff. I’m just going to skate my stage 7s because I couldn’t sell them locally. Probably because they are for 8 down and the yoke hang up thing. It’s a street truck. No need for inverted yokes.

I’ve found that old Indy 139s are the best truck for me when I do flips into manny.

I have no idea why but it just works better than all modern trucks I have for manny tricks.

I’m sure I’m not the first one to think this but could a case be made that all of our god damn tech devices are a new form of life?  Instead of reproducing, disseminating and evolving the old-fashioned way, they’re parasitically getting another species to do it for them.  Almost like a macroscopic virus  :o.

Edit:  Just looked it up and apparently most biologists say viruses don’t fulfill all the requirements to be considered to be “alive”.  Still an interesting idea in my opinion.

If Sheckler went and landed the bs flip on El Toro when he tried it, which was a decent amount of time after telling Phelps he did it, would people have noticed he was older than the time he was speaking to Phelps? Would he have just straight up admitted he hadn't done it then, but planned to do it? Don't know why I'm pondering Sheckler, but here we are.

Wouldn’t it save everyone a lot of headache and misery if Biden just cut the bullshit and sent the (now) $55 billion directly to Raytheon and Lockheed Martin but without sending any weapons?

That way all the evil, corrupt elites can get their god damn money they want so fucking bad and maybe we can quit prolonging this ridiculous war and Russians and Ukrainians can stop killing each other and due to this delusion that Ukraine has any chance of winning?  Seems like a win-win.

What percentage of skate videos can you identify the trick by seeing the first second of the rollup? I recently watched Mosaic, which I've probably seen 100+ times in my life, and realized I probably could get about 98-99% of the tricks right just seeing the first frame of the clip. My memory is pretty shitty these days, but my favorite skate videos are definitely engrained in my head.

Sorta random thoughts about skate videos in general. Went to prems of bag of suck, fully flared, mind field, stay gold, pretty sweet and more I can't remember and it was always like an event to look forward to that built and built. I think fully flared was the absolute peak of skate video decadence. As far as the time and travel and production value. Pretty sweet was the biggest downer like it actually felt in the cinema like everyone was disappointed as it was playing. Like as a whole the skate community sobered up and thought oh yeah we don't actually want this anymore. And this was further felt by talking to people after the prem.
Anyway fast forward ten years and right now I'm looking at tubi and see they have some of the Crail videos including "the flare". I never even bothered to watch this when it came out and totally forgot it existed. Put it on and barely made it past the intro before turning it off.
But why did I and everyone else get over this type of video? What do i care how much they spend or travel? Maybe it's just like those crazy hamburgers restraunts make with way too much stuff on it. Like more should be better but it's not really an enjoyable eating experience

I know this old fella from the pub, who over the years has become quite a good friend.
One of his favourite sayings is “you can’t make strawberry jam outta pig shit and I’m here to prove it!”

He’s back home soon from FIFO work so I might finally ask him what it means.

The internet used to feel like walking into a giant abyss of a library. Almost everything and damn near anything, the unknowns and the familiar, just free to walk around this place. To discover.

Now, you enter the library and are immediately stopped at the front door. You get to wait around in the foyer while some entity goes in the back and brings you things. The most power you have is to ask “do you have anything about this subject” but it’s like talking to a golden retriever, constantly, almost INCESSANTLY bringing you random shit, to which you may say “yes I like this” or “no I don’t like this”. What the fuck is happening? Yes/no answers are not conducive to exploration. It’s mind numbing, overwhelming, and impossible to stay focused. STOP TRYING TO GET TO KNOW ME WEIRDO. I’m so sick of being micromanaged.

I think it's a bit like "You can only fuck with the dick you got" meaning you just have to make do with what you're given.

Can you just not copyright a cartoon? That can't be true in any way but I have like ten different streaming things and they all seem to have a dozen cartoons that are clones of each other. There's like a bunch of camp something, ones with loud in the title and like strange or something sort of like regular show or gravity falls. This should be a good thing because I have endless hours of shit to put on to entertain kids but I just had to look for like an hour for their show they like while they winge "nah not this one it's different". I thought Disney was mean why are they letting so many copies of their properties exist?

I like playing this game with new video parts. I like to try to guess what trick the skater is going to do based on the skater's stance, where they're looking, what they are rolling up to, etc. I think I get about 40% of the tricks correct.

I'm enough of a nerd that I'd put it up in the 99% mark. There's something about specific videos for sure tho like anything new I can probably guess the trick easy enough but if I remember the trick two minutes later is something altogether different. For some reason I used to think the best thing to do is learn how to do every trick with your feet set up the same. Dustin Dollin and Jeremy Wray style. I could kinda do it for most things but I don't know if size 13 feet make it easier or harder
