I’d love to be a fly on the wall while the US government people are trying to figure out what Russian prisoner(s) to offer up in exchange for Brittney Griner.

It’s like… how dangerous of an enemy to the United States does someone need to be for them to trade 9 years of her life for?  Where’s the line?

It’s just such a bizarre thing to quantify someone’s life in terms of potential national security threats.

Why do Scarlett Johansson’s eyes look like that?

If we have a concept of nothing then what happens when you die ? Theoretically nothing is actually something since it’s been defined. The concept of zero exists but as a place holder for absence of anything. But if you can define it ,is it still nothing?

Well I think those are two different questions.  I think the “nothing” when we die is a lack of consciousness and we would experience it just like we experienced the time before we were born… that is, no experience whatsoever.

The next point that “nothing” being defined makes it “something” is either some semantic game or is genuinely too profound for me to understand.

A little while back I overheard some rollerbladers at the skatepark taking about doing tricks switch. I wondered how that's possible with rollerblading. Seems like you're either rolling forwards or backwards and you turn clockwise or counterclockwise.


I think the term in blader speak is “Unnatural”
And can be applied to
rotation direction or foot placement on an obstacle.

I like fakie fire cracker. Might be impossible to fire cracker forward on blade tho so it might be just fire cracker.

It’s pretty much the exact same tactic as skateboarding fire cracker.  You wanna clip the tip of the stairs and basically do a manual.

What do we call RB mannys? I can’t remember. I did like bombing hills on my toes tho. That’s probably my first RB trick.

Fakie manny hill bomb. Makes sense because my first skateboarding trick was hill bomb. Same with my little brothers’.

Anyway

During my few months of PT blading I liked to land tricks into stairs like it was a bumpy wedge ramp.

I was told by a friend was is a heavy trick back in the day.

Do like alley oop? 180 fakie top soul?
(Rail on the left, counter clockwise 80, Right foot locked over the bar left foot rear wheel on the rail and pow into to the stairs.

So much fun!!! I want go do it rn. Lol.

the big negative to rbs is escaping cops or violence. So difficult

Skateboarding is the best ride for art crimes and shit. 
Hop a fence in seconds and walk down the tracks till you are outside the city’ hop on a bus and be gone.

RBs are a pain and bikes are sometimes too heavy to whip over the barbwire.

I want to start a lemonade company called Milkmilk and sell it exclusively from stands on the same block as the local confectionary.
