Liefe, you'd better believe RSA will be all over The Fark pretty soon. Flood the sports tab with Proteas & 'Boks, politics tab with ANC guff, frontpgage with stupid stunts that may kill and entertainment with WWZ spinoffs.

Never understood skater culture any better than surfer culture, but it does have the benefit of having significantly less chance of shark.

We took the urethane wheels and ABEC-7 bearings off of our roller blades and put them on our skateboards... then we'd bungee sleds on top of the boards and have 2-3 man luge team street races.

An easy way to win the downhill was to force your competitors into the gravel on either side of the road... clearing the run-off curb and bailing in a lawn was your best option once you got the gravel shakes at speed.

ages ago we came up with the brilliant idea of using a whole lot of bungee donated by my dad(who had i swear to god dozens of multi-hundred foot spools of the stuff in the attic for what reason i have no idea...) and a hand-cranked winch off an old jeep to create a giant idiot-slingshot. sucker ran at ground-level.

we had the thing mounted up on posts and set up a launch cradle in the middle. pulled back maybe 50-60 feet i want to say. we used a quick-release hook that someone else scared up out of another father's workshop.

the acceleration was an experience i have never forgotten. when you weigh maybe 70 pounds, a shiat-ton of bungee will accelerate you to ungodly speeds when you have the low rolling resistance of a skateboard. only way to start was sitting down or laying down. wish we'd built a luge sled.

we set the thing to launch you uphill. it was a surprisingly substantial hill. you arrived at the top with a fair head of speed still, at least 25-30 miles an hour.

god those were the days.

I was hoping he slid under a car, squashing what little brain he had.
Anytime I see idiots on skateboards, ON PUBLIC STREETS, I slide my car
up to where they can't get by, or force them ONTO THE SIDEWALK where
they belong.  They have caused so much destruction of sidewalks, curbs,
handrails that a lot of businesses have gone to the expense of adding metal
bumps to handrails, angle iron to the edges of curbs etc, to stop the damage
then brain dead morons cause.

opiumpoopy: joonyer: True story: I got a speeding ticket for doing 68 in a 55. On a bike. Highway 95 down into Lewiston, Idaho made it all possible.

I thought I would win in court. I was wrong.

+1. I think getting a similar ticket might go on my list of things to do once in a lifetime.

/ Although I think I'll just pay the ticket and not try the court.


Yeah I was 21. Young, dumb, and full of ....shiat.

Also....

No, you don't do that. And you don't really feel that way. You just want attention. Stop lying and get off your mom's computer.
