Coss Posted March 26, 2016 Report Share Posted March 26, 2016 I comment the following edited news article, in order to express my dismay, at the ability of adults to remain teenagers, well into adulthood. The following could apply equally to basejumpers. The following has been edited to remove identifying details. I of course do, regret that someone has died and I feel for the family and friends involved. --- The family of a 21-year-old killed out longboarding (skateboarding) near xxx on Friday, say he died doing what he loved. (So often the phrase for death whilst doing something stupid and dangerous) Joe skateboarder was killed when he fell, and was hit by a car following him down xxx Road on Friday. (the car, driven by his friend, in order that he be recorded doing something stupid and dangerous) His sister, Joella skateboarder, said he'd been longboarding (skateboarding) for years, and he'd skated that hill before. (most of us give up skateboarding, about the time we want to be taken seriously by girls, 14 or 15, the will to procreate, is not strong with skateboarders) "He just really got into it really quickly, and then he just progressed," she said. "His talent was amazing." (balancing on a board with wheels? not really amazing, climbing Mt Everest, that's amazing, beating a supercomputer in chess, that's amazing, surviving a bear attack, etc, etc) Ms skateboarder said her brother came home the other week and told her and their mum that he was going to go pro. (skateboarders? pro? that's like being really good at pubescent masturbation, if you're really good at it, like most 13 yr olds, go pro) She said a group of professional guys from the States ('merica) had been over here staying, (the purpose of so many adults stuck in puberty, "what are you doing?" "nuttin, just stayin") and wouldn't go longboarding with anyone else. (very important, like all 12 yr olds stuck in adults bodies, the exclusivity of the group is the important thing, pubescent girls have this down pat) "He was the only person in xxx allowed to skate with them, (see previous comment) which is mental (if you say so). So yeah, so many contacts everywhere, and he was so excited to go over. He was going to go over to California in April." (apparently they have pubescent skateboarders in the US) The 21-year-old's girlfriend Briella said Joe was always positive, and he had the most infectious smile. (how could he be otherwise? and adult with a child's responsibilities) She said to him, everyone was talented, and everyone had so much to contribute. (gosh the world is such a wonderful place) "He just saw the best in everybody, and I'd just never met anyone like him." (given the small size of their home town, that's not surprising, that they only mixed with other pubescent skateboarders, that is surprising however).
