dont worry bra! everybody makes mistakes, recently we just found out that the knee pucks dont actually go on your knee.

i know, i know - mindfuck right? we'll have some articles about that too but its pretty complex, bra.

Actually, its quite a good community to grow with. With all of the available information, if your conceptualization of how people are operate was true, there would never be things like this posted. People would read the tomes already written on the proper things and places to do things.....and then just do them.



Obviously that utopia doesn't exist. Instead, the only tool left to keep people in line is to embarass the out of them, and hope they quit. Even this is only effective 25% of the time.

I think the OP just got very excited that he dragged his knees and wanted to share it.....

I am sure that if he had done it at the track instead of on the street, the feedbacks from this forum would had been a lot more positive.

You clearly dont understand socialization.

Also, page 1 gave him the chance. The advice was offered and this schmuck ran his mouth about "dont hate, appreciate." Well, that attittude. The guy didnt come on here to get advice or pointers, he came to brag about some lame accomplishment and he got flamed for it. This site will offer an abundance of advice TO THOSE WHO WANT IT, but some know it all isnt going to get much further than getting flamed.
Open your eyes and get your head wrapped around that.
But hey, at least he has you to fight his fights for him.

You're correct, the feedback would have been more positive as the track is the proper venue. There's a time and a place for everything.
