I mostly just use the internet to follow 50 cent on twitter and watch people fucking on red tube. I was unaware there was much else
All the Internet has done is massively expand information flow - input and output. It's done so to a greater extent than other changing technologies (eg phone, fax) but in the end, it's simply an extended network communication medium.
People who lack ability to assimilate, process and analyze big storehouses of information will be disadvantage; but then they've always been disadvantaged. People who can critically analyze and process lots of information will have extraordinary advantages - again, there's nothing new here. What's new is the degree to which people will win and lose due to an ability to process information.
What's new is what Darthyoga alludes to. The Internet is also an output mechanism in the sense that people can take action on that information because the unit costs of sending out information is so minimal (eg email blasts, a blog, viral videos etc). People who know how to use this medium and engage other people will win really really big.
I'm not quite as pessimistic as Bukkake. Sure there will be a tendency for limited attention span but i don't think the medium itself is to blame. I do believe that grassroots, niche interests enthusiast communities also win big using the Internet (eg freeride mountainbikers, lovers and protectors of frogs etc). What I mean is that there always were a lot of talkers and not a lot of do'ers. What the Internet does is allow the talkers to have a voice (Eg. all the keyboard NSMB warriors who always threathen to stake out trails to look for the mythical trail nazi - we wouldn't even notice their clueless posturing if they couldn't post about it.) . People who tend to take action will always do things with or without a "global computer network". All the Internet does is make the job of spreading a message easier and quicker.
DJ Khaled is a collosal douche. I don't understand how average looking fat guys can have any form of confidence. It's like " look at me, I sit around in my house all day pushing drum buttons to make beats, all the while shoving my face with fatty foods and under excersizing. Don't you wanna be me?" Eat less bro.
I feel that it is pretty tough to the be at the top of two sports. Generally, to be the best at anything you need a remarkable amount of skill but at the same time you need to put the most effort/time into it ( at least for the long term). By being in two sports it seems that after a long enough amount of time you will become mediocre in both of them. Schley is a perfect example, he is a great skier and bike rider but has never been that exiciting in either of them. Shaun White kind of had to put his skateboarding on the backburner to achieve the results he has had in snowboarding. Michael Jordan attempted to go to baseball and that was just fucking embarassing.
Fox racing, Fox shocks, Gabe Fox [HTML_REMOVED] Meghan Fox.
I would rather sit and watch transformers once (keeping in mind I loathe robot movies) just to admire the hot piece of ass that is Meghan Fox than get a lifetime supply of all 3 other mentioned fox people/products.
have you never watched drop in? About time we had another one!
Of course I have seen drop in. But i don't feel like watching some watered down crap with content regarding the cheese sandwich that super T ate on the bus. I need more than that. I want to see the real deal. I'm talking bearclaw doing special k and then entering a qualicum beach fishing derby and falling asleep, forcing his friend to take over the boat.
How cool would it be. An MTV camera crew follows around 6 mountain bikers and documents their lives both on and off the bike. You could follow around Paul Bas as he filmed for NWD during the day and then went and threw up obscene gang signs with his frat boys at the University of Las Vegas. Have Andreu Lacondeguay at the tattoo shop with his team managers while they cheer him on and feed his ego all the while knowing in the back of their heads that his career in mtb is about as sustainable as a heroin addiction and that in 5 years, the money will be gone but the dice sleeve tattoos will still be there. Film ROMO hucking a 60 footer in the day and rallying drunk in his F150 with his buddies through the fields of Kelowna at night. :ohthedrama:
I have been away for the day and I come back to this mess. It's a bunch of nerds claiming how needless this thread has become and yet they're the ones keeping it going. They post links going nowhere and somehow claim that the fact that I have learned to articulate myself is a bad thing. I mean, back when Shore King ran show, it was " oh what a loser, he can't spell so we shouldn't take him seriously. Shore King, if you want us to listen, then learn to spell." These days, it's " oh look, this idiot found the grammar checker, im so unimpressed." It seems I can't win.
Yeah what's with all you haters. It's like " oh oh no something exciting and fun has come to the board. Put that shit down like a sick dog. If the thread isn't about the '09 truvativ line or wade simmons riding oilcan, then i want nothing to do with it".
