    Parkour / Freerunning

    Apparently this is becoming mainstream as I saw a RedBull commercial that essentially equated this to a sport. I have no idea how they do this stuff:

    I can imagine this started out as burglar training until some people picked it up and it became cool to do.

    You really need trained ancles and knees for this.
    And falltechniques training.
    And balls! Some jumps are just ridiculous.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    If he does, god help him. Arthritis can't come soon enough. What with all these falls and stuff, the cartilage between your bones will last for only so long. Dr.Boogerballs might be able to share a few cents.

    Parkour is fun, sadly their isn't any good areas to do it around here. Me and friends would go around jumping over walls trying not to die. Theirs this gym around here that has this foam pit and trampolines and what not. Really fun messing around on those things. Feel like going back to it now haha.

    looks like a fun sport for people that have nothing to lose
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Yeah, it's crazy how much more height you can gain on them compared to the normal trampolines. Going to try to make some videos next time I go or something.
