I think thatís 50% of mustache dudes, not just you

I probably looked less like a pedophile and more like a European pervert when i had just my mustache
I had the beard grown in kinda thick a few years ago at Halloween and wanted to test a mustache as ďpart of a costumeĒ so I didnít get too much shit if it looked bad.
My wife and her bff couldnít stop laughing whenever they looked at me and called me Lt. Dangle and pornstar all night. Beard came back asap.

I just tried v-flips for the first time since the mid 90s and on the 3rd try I caught one that felt better than any other trick I still have. I don't know how to feel right now.
What's the word?
Tell me brother, have you heard

It's a trick that feels good but looks bad. Nothing wrong with that.

They're like the sweatpants of skateboarding tricks.

I have absolutely no idea how to 3flip, but I got vflips like a motherfucker. get that front foot exactly midway, almost too far back, between front and back trucks, heel angled toward tail, and ninja flick that shit. idk how the hell it works but they pop pretty big for me like that :o

I'm definitely going to keep them around because idk how much longer I will have my 360 flips. At 44 they are a lot more effort than they used to be. They don't feel the same and I miss a lot of them. It's kinda depressing, like admitting I'm getting old haha. Maybe Vflips will fill that void.

yaaaa, you skate 7.75s or something like that  ;) i'v seen your 3flips on tape and they look pretty good, especially stationary in a room. I really started skating again thinking I wanted to learn 360 flips, but when I started to size down from 8.5 for learning, I really decided I'd rather stick with weird ass vflips. on the bright side, dolphin flips are a similar flick to vflips :o

Thanks man, Oddly enough I can't do them on my 7.5-7.75 I can do them on big setups, but I lose almost everything else. Speaking of indoor stationary skating it's almost that time here again, I moved my ramps/boxes into the shed yesterday  :( Insanity here we come

I have a younger trans sibling who I've grown a little distant from over the past few years, now that they live over 100 miles away. She recently got a FB account for the first time and she just posted that she is being hospitalized for the 4th time for suicidal thoughts.

A middle finger to anyone out there that trivializes the experiences of trans people and other marginalized peoples.

I'll be 49 next week.  Kickflips are getting rarer and rarer for me.  so much so, that I've started logging them in my phone.  I did one a couple of weeks ago at my Sunday morning curb sesh.  The last one before that was exactly 9 months prior.  I figure I never know when I've done my last one, so might as well take notes.

That's awesome that you refuse to let go of them! I was back home a few months ago and I was talking to the shop owner of my old local (15-25 years ago) I told him I was downsizing my setups to keep my fliptricks around. He laughed and said "I'm impressed you still do them. Guys our age usually give them up by now." I don't know how accurate that is, but it sure put a smile on my face on the ride home.

I have a younger trans sibling who I've grown a little distant from over the past few years, now that they live over 100 miles away. She recently got a FB account for the first time and she just posted that she is being hospitalized for the 4th time for suicidal thoughts.

A middle finger to anyone out there that trivializes the experiences of trans people and other marginalized peoples.

That is absolutely gut wrenching. Iím sincerely hoping that they pull through. I know it may sound trite, but if there is anything we can do to help the situation please donít be stranger.

Also echoing that statement, a giant fuck you to anyone that that minimizes the experiences of all marginalized groups.

Wishing you and your sibling nothing but the best.

Although my sexual appetite has waned considerably, I still would like to experience a relationship and it bothers me very much that I probably never will. I really wish I didn't care, but something in my brain yearns for it. It makes me feel basic and that makes me hate myself little more. Okay, a lot more. Why should I care about such base desires? Why can't I be an automaton void of emotion?

Truth be told, I'm actually doing a lot better emotionally than I have been historically. I don't dread going to work like I used to. I'm about to pay off my car. I even got a new apartment. I just can't shake this monkey off my shoulders. Oh well, back to telling myself that I don't care and it doesn't matter.

I'm glad to hear that you are at least feeling better emotionally than you have in the past. You may think this is redundant to say but I know that you will find someone that gives you that meaning in life that you are looking for. That fact that you're still here and still looking says a lot about you. You've got something special inside of you that keeps you going despite all of the other stuff that makes you want to give up. Keep on keeping on, man. I can't wait for the day when I log on and see that you found that person.

Although my sexual appetite has waned considerably, I still would like to experience a relationship and it bothers me very much that I probably never will. I really wish I didn't care, but something in my brain yearns for it. It makes me feel basic and that makes me hate myself little more. Okay, a lot more. Why should I care about such base desires? Why can't I be an automaton void of emotion?

Truth be told, I'm actually doing a lot better emotionally than I have been historically. I don't dread going to work like I used to. I'm about to pay off my car. I even got a new apartment. I just can't shake this monkey off my shoulders. Oh well, back to telling myself that I don't care and it doesn't matter.

Gonna second all this, just go places where there are other people you could talk to or who might share your interests and if you feel like trying to connect with someone, go with it and do what comes natural.  If you keep that up and don't force what doesn't work, you will at minimum get more comfortable with relating to people and I'd be a little surprised if something more didn't happen as well.

So here's my contribution: I was out drinking last night and saw a chick I thought I should try talking to.  I started mentally getting ready to chat her up when this dog came over and sat right by me.  I started petting the dog, which wound up breaking the ice and the chick and I started talking.  She was really nice, I was really complimentary, she told me more than once it made her night talking to me, but she also informed me that she was a lesbian.  I take that at face value and go back to my boozing.

So, she sticks around and keeps making eyes at me, then comes back over to where I'm sitting and starts talking to me again.   I felt more or less within my rights doing it under the circumstances, so I offered my number, which she accepted and immediately called (so now I have her number).  All the signals would be pretty clear if it weren't for the whole lesbian thing being the stick in the spokes.  Practically nothing is riding on this, I'm just incredibly perplexed and there's nothing sensible to do but post about it.

I have problems lying for no reason compulsively since a child and I know it's wrong but I try and confuse people by tricking them into a confused reality to discourage their own growth so I can feel satisfied about mine. I don't think it's ok to use people but I need what I need and I have serious problems that need serious changing.
At least my dad thinks so.
