Socialize / What kinda podcasts/radio shows do you like?
« on: May 03, 2011, 12:57:37 PM »
I just got the idea to ask this because "Stuff You Should Know" just did an (excellent) podcast on parkour. What kind of podcasts, if any, do you listen to?

I love them, I listen to Radiolab and This American Life, and I would recommend TalkRadar to anyone interested in videogames/hilarity. Podcasts from howstuffworks.com (like the aforementioned Stuff You Should Know) are fantastic as well.

This is what we wish all parkour articles in the news should be like.

In the Media / Parkour in SyFy's "The Phantom"
« on: June 20, 2010, 04:18:07 PM »
I haven't watched the whole thing, but apparently there's a crap ton of parkour references in it. Here's a semi-satirical blurb from a critic:

"Parkour is magic. Parkour can solve almost any problem that might come up. Girlfriend stand you up? Do Parkour on her roof until she takes you back. Miss a job interview? Do some Parkour! Irritable bowel syndrome? I'm sure sufficiently vigorous Parkour will sort that out. Seriously — in this movie, people doing Parkour are so magical, they can even film themselves and stream the results live online — without having anybody to hold the camera. Parkour RULES!"--http://io9.com/5566713/the-phantom-spoiler-free-preview


I saw the aforementioned scene. It was some guys walking around on rooftops and jumping off of them. Literally, that was it. They just hopped off a ledge shouting "Dude this is extreme!" and fell 40 feet, landing on their feet in an alley. Then they did the same thing and one of them broke their legs. Cause, you know parkour is extreme as hell.

Website and Forum Troubleshooting / Post Count No Working...
« on: February 12, 2010, 08:36:56 PM »
This may seem really minor, but it's just kind of annoying to me. It sort of starts and stops working on different days, and freezes. Like I've been stick at this same number of posts for a week, it says I still have fifty-something when I've got over eighty.

Like I said, minor, but why?

Socialize / The Military
« on: January 31, 2010, 05:56:53 PM »
So I have recently begun looking at all kinds of different stuff in the military and was just interested in APK's viewpoints on the different branches of the military. I've been looking at the National Guard as a possible career path once I graduate. Anybody out there have some sort of military experience and want to share a story? Or anything else related?

Socialize / Ninjas or Pirates? Or Assassins?
« on: January 13, 2010, 03:56:27 PM »
I personally think old time assassins (like Assassin's Creed) beat both ninjas and pirates. But I think both ninjas and assassins would both beat pirates anyway...specifically why "Ninja Assassin" may well be the best movie ever....

Lexicon / Could "Traceur" be used as a universal term?
« on: January 09, 2010, 03:18:06 PM »
As in, instead of having both "Traceur" and "Tracuse", could Traceur be used as a universal term for all practitioners? Just wondering...
