the international space station does one complete revolution around the earth in 90 minutes .. thatís four miles per second .. it blows my mind that astronauts do space walks outside of it yet they donít experience acceleration

I got offered an insane amount of money for this.

via Imgflip Meme Generator

got me thinking what is it worth


The jacket is a 1970s two pocket levi type 3 that John Travolta touched in 2013. I have two more. Should have had him sign one.

The AxCx patch I got from Seth Putnam. Charley I think sold me the Psycho.

The Hand printed anticimex back patch came from crusty tim I think. I got it at an anarchist market

My ex boyfriend got me the other stuff.

There's 20 coats of a special paint that I mixed by hand in 2002 and ran out of.

It smells like a service yard for public transportation

I feel it's wrong to sell this to someone

I could have built a miniramp with the money. Maybe I would trade for a miniramp idk

what is an insane price to you? no offense but that looks like the most uncomfortable piece of clothing ever.

has anyone ever clicked a banner ad on a website thinking "oh yes i need this" then proceeded to purchase the product?

i just feel like digital ad space is kinda pointless sometimes and only reminds people that yes, that company is still around. looking at the slap ads, its obviously stuff i am interested in and even still i wouldnt click and buy through a digital ad. especially these fucking krux ads.

haha this is a good question, I'd be curious to know if anyone actually just made an on the spot purchase due to a banner because it seems unlikely

It's because they aren't accelerating any more.

I donít pay to attention to sports but I was listening to bill burr today and he was talking about Alex Bregman hitting and home run & holding his bat all the way to 1st base . Burr has big gripe against all the constant unnecessary celebration in sports these days . So Iím curious what other people think here on the board ? Me personally I donít care for arrogance and disrespect to something thatís been around a lot longer then I have been around for and todayís society doesnít care much for previous rules . they want to make there own set of rules for others to follow .

I hate unnecessary celebrating in football, mainly. Hate it with a passion.

Most of the time when a guy scores a TD, he gets the whole team in the endzone to pose for the camera or some shit. Just spike the ball (or preferably hand it to the ref) and jog back to the sidelines.

The worst is when a guy from a team that is losing by 35 points will get up after getting a first down and point down the field. What are you celebrating? You are getting your asses kicked. Just shut the fuck up.
FUCK YOU

I don't quite understand all of it either, but I think because they're not accelerating or changing the speed at which they're moving, they don't feel that movement. Like when you fly on a plane, you feel the speed when you take off, but when your cruising at like 500-something mph, you don't feel like you're going that fast.

Plus theres no gravity or any other force working against you when you're in space.

Yea something similar when I was a kid, i thought that if you were on a train and jumped, while you were in the air the train would move under your feet and you would float. But i guess since you are going the same speed it doesnt work like that. Yea though space walks seem pretty fucking wild with no wind resistance it must be weird as hell.

What trips me out is that there is gravity and the space station is effectively falling however due to it's speed and position in low earth orbit it never hits the ground.

I've been skating for 32 years and I'm finally realizing that the glory days are over. I'm starting to grasp that skating will never be as popular as it was in the 2000s again. Skateshops are closing, I never see anyone street skating when I am out and and about and when I do see someone with a board 9 times out of 10 it's a longboard or a penny cruiser. I should mention I live in Southern California. I have to say, I'm kinda stoked that our thing is kinda going underground again. I've also realized most of us are crazy for sticking with this shit for as long as we all have and to love it as much as we do is not considered normal by the mainstream non-skating public. FUCK EM

I remember as a teenager skating around the city of sydney, you would see skaters at every street corner, you couldnt hit a spot without other people cruising up to it. I know the skate scene in sydney is still somewhat strong but i just rarely see skaters out now
I live in the middle of nowhere. Itís crazy now when I think how nobody is out skating anymore. I donít see anyone anyways. We used to roll around like bandits and cross the paths of others doing the same.

It used to be a more frequent thing everywhere: packs of skaters roaring down the street. That was such an awesome sight and sound. They've successfully domesticated and tamed skateboarding. Or maybe the younger generation doesn't see the point of leaving the park. There are still small isolated groups hitting the streets but it's not the same.

I feel like a bitch saying this but there are definitely too many parks in new york city and it feels like bread and circuses to keep us away from borough hall and big screen or whatever.* also I got kicked out of that park in East Harlem with the concrete mini because it's completely within the confines of a school's recess area and adults can't be in there during school hours.

I really dislike all sam hydes skits but i like the ted talk he gave its kinda funny.

why did 360s go out of style in the mid to late 90s and what led to their comeback? jeremy wray and some other people did front threes sometimes but even those were rare and you almost never saw back threes.

I loved this, makes me feel lucky to grow up with that in the city.... those were the best times of my life, its sad to see how much things have changed.

  The front ones never quite made it 'out of style' but the backside ones def did.  I wonder who brought the back 3 back?  J klein in The End?   360 flips were out of style for a lil minute there even at one point.

willy santos is the one i remember doing them in Uno. then greco. klein did them but he also did fast plants. i don't think anyone [other than greco] was copying klein's playbook.

His Oakley "Our Life" part has a lot of technically crazy tricks in it. I was 14-15 when that video came out and I always found myself intrigued by his part because he was so opposite of what I wanted my skating to look like both in trick selection and clothing style.

Edit: just watched the part again to refresh my memory. A lot of the clips in this part could hold up today but I think his real downfall was the tall tee. Looks like he went too many sizes too tall.

I almost never buy anything new as a result of ads. I'm not saying that to sound cool - it's fine to be influenced by advertising. Ads have definitely influenced me - but it's usually for a product I'm aware of beforehand. First I hear good things about it, then if I'm introduced to an ad and it's not cringeworthy, that's icing on the cake.

I would be interested in seeing the clickthrough rate for some of the ads on Slap, though. Can't be that much.

what is an insane price to you? no offense but that looks like the most uncomfortable piece of clothing ever.

people say that then they try it on. It fits me like a second skin. I built it on the subways and busses hand stitched it with 10 rolls of dental floss. I was wearing it daily under a leather so its hella soft. Its 22 lbs of awesome. I got offered several hundred a few times.

To sell this to someone is against my beliefs. Same with excepting sponsorships for skating. Shop is cool. Local board company cool. All else is lame shit
Let me give you the same advice my father gave me, all right
Give up hope. Look at me. Dreams are for suckers.

Amish communities are weird, tried to talk to a few different times when I see them and they are not overtly rude but certainly not friendly people just reserved to the outsiders, and I have always wanted to have a one on one conversation with one to get inside their heads.

I know you ate my shrimp, there was 8 but got 7.
