Parkour!

Published by at 3:40 am under I Don't Get It,Jerks,Why?!?

Parkour accident

Look at me, I’m walking… TO THE EXTREME!

If I ever catch my child participating in anything that remotely resembles parkour or “free running” I am going straight to the nearest antique tool dealer, buying the largest, rustiest pre-civil war saw they own, driving back home and cutting his feet off. I’m serious, if I so much as see that kid walking on a curb or staring at a wall longingly, he can kiss those tootsies goodbye. Sure, he will complain about how “mean” I am blah blah blah, but what kid doesn’t bitch and moan about their parents? He will thank me later when he’s watching all those douchebags jumping around and falling on their faces, safely from the comfort of his wheelchair. He will look down at his gnarled stumps and think “Thank the good Lord above that I’m not wasting my time on this shit.” He will roll off into the setting sun to the sound of zitty teen faces slamming against the pavement and whisper “Thank you dad.”

Thanks to Jonathan for tipping me off to this Parkour scene from The Office!

If you are anything like me, these parkour accidents will give you a boner.

    The arrogance in this “article” is staggering.

    I read that you’re a skater of 20 years, yeah? You should know what it’s like to have your sport criticised and insulted by wilfully ignorant assholes.

    Oh, but you’re a skater of 20 years… I’ve met plenty of skaters that are closed-minded about any sport unless it involves a board or a football.

    There are also those skaters that never grow up.

    I don’t expect a serious answer. I know your reflex response will probably to troll me or insult me (as demonstrated by the past comments), which only drives my point forward:

    You’re an arrogant, wilfully ignorant asshole with a self-entitled chip on his shoulder.

    That, or your ‘internet personality’ is that of a keyboard warrior.

    Dude – You want a serious answer? OK, here you go. I have NEVER witnessed a group of people as insecure as you parkour kids! Seriously, even those Japanese guys who marry their love-pillows are less sensitive about their “hobby.” The difference between skaters and parkour kids is that skaters genuinely don’t give a shit about what people think about them. In fact, they generally don’t even pay attention to the world outside of skateboarding. You extreme walking kids are SO FUCKING SENSITIVE that all it takes is one guy on the internet to get your extreme panties in an extreme bunch. And let’s not forget that, according to you guys, I am a fat slob who lives in my mom’s basement. As a group you are so insecure that a supposed fat basement dweller needs only write ONE PARAGRAPH making fun of your little sport and you winge and cry about it for years! Grow the fuck up and stop caring about other people so much. Jesus Christ, you kids are the biggest fucking babies on the planet.

    I’m not actually one of those ‘Parkour Kids’, mind you. Sure, I occasionally use their techniques in my UrbEx (it’s actually quite beneficial in that scenario).

    I actually don’t care what the ‘Parkour Kids’ are like. This stemmed from arrogant ignorance on your part in the first place. Before you even knew what the ‘Parkour Kids’ are like.

    I’m betting there are plenty of other disciplines you could have picked on and gotten exactly the same response.

    Do you actually have a reason to hate Parkour – the sport itself – excluding the whiny little kids? The article suggests that you hate it because people get hurt. There has to be more to it than that?

    Because, by that logic, you should hate every extreme or physically intensive sport on the planet.

    What is wrong with you people? Why do you crave my approval so much? I don’t need to elaborate on my opinion of parkour. What, you never sit around with your friends and talk shit about things YOU don’t like? FUCK! Grow a pair of fucking balls already.

  5. Dude...on 09 Apr 2013 at 9:22 pm

    Okay, that makes sense. The article was shit talking, shit-stirring.

    Well, it succeeded.

    Parkour is “art” and an “awesome physical discipline” the same way an epileptic seizure is. These idiots are the worst bunch of hopelessly spastic mental defectives I’ve ever seen (as they’ve so richly demonstrated in their commentary) who are simply too stupid to walk in a straight line like sensible human beings. The only thing “extreme” about these morons is their low IQs.
    Kudos to you calling these wretched dolts out on their stupidity. Goddamn people, “free style walking”? You are the dumbest fuckers on this planet. Aliens spotting this would surely (and rightfully) exterminate all life on this planet.
    I’d retroactively abort any kid of mine I caught being so grossly ignorant.
    And these incredible pussies telling us we don’t understand “parkour”! The problem is that we understand it all too well: you’re defectives. It’s really quite simple…just like you are.
    Oh my god, Team Tempest–I’d say it was the biggest collection of fags since the SF Pride Parade but I’d hate to disparage homosexuals who have better sense that these clowns.
    Lamest fucking thing I’ve ever seen–it makes me wonder with dread what colossal retardation clueless imbeciles will come up with next; I’d say this was the nadir of all human effort but I have faith in humanity that something even worse is to follow.

    I love that you didn’t have the mental capacity to squeeze in your final attempt at an insult into your original comment.

    Good people of Earth, please take a look at how this idiot communicates. Soak in the way he rapes and murders the most basic rules of grammar. This is the future we all get to live in. We are doomed. I don’t mean that as a joke, we are ACTUALLY doomed.
