I really want to run from the cops for no reason. like go up to a cop and poke him until he gets annoyed enough to chase me, and i just take off. I pretty much just picture mirror's edge, which in some sense collaborates with the superhero aspect :P
im sorry but that is the most retarded plan ever, do you seriously want to get arrested
iif your joking ok but my buddy had that same plan about 2 weeks ago and he got to spend a night in jail

About making the choice between taking a bullet for someone and letting the criminal have his way: look into a self-defense art called Krav Maga. I personally think it's the martial arts brother to parkour, because it's incredibly effiecient.

Krav Maga   is one of the most deadly martial arts in the world
so use it wisley,  you just might kill someone  if u were consumed by rage
in a fight for "self defense'

i wouldnt learn  because i would probaly abuse it   :-X




Then you should consider Aikido. :)

This Halloween, my friends and I (by that i mean them) are planing to dress up like ninjas and have fun around the town. However, I am going rouge and dressing as Spider-man to have my fun ;D

Haha, I've considered stuff like that. Wanting to get a cop to chase me...just to see if I can out run him.

And yes I have thought about the whole superhero thing...a lot. I used to be a massive superhero junkie and wanted to be a comic book artist. The picture is of one of the superheroes I designed based around me. I may have to do a new one...without the cape. Lol. I'll probably see if I can actually make the costume for myself  ;D

We must make a new ordinance, parkour NEVER gets taught to the police! They'll learn our secrets....

Yeah, it seems like the cape would just be in the way.

I spend way too much thinking about this.

...maybe that has something to do with the giant stack of comics sitting next to me on my bed right now?  Nearly 30, and I'm more into now than ever before.  ;D

Haha.  One time when I was feeling especially superhero-ish, I was browsing online for possible tools that could be used and to see if there have actually been any real superheros (or close to it), I found this weird "real life superhero forum."    HAHAHAHAhahahaha.  I read some of the stuff, it was hilarious.  Very inactive though.  Someone posted a video of parkour and they started talking and saying that it would be useful.  I bet they were all either 11 year olds, or fat middle aged men.

Lets see if I can find that forum... *goes off to search*

Ok, I think I found it but I don't feel like reading through it:

http://www.therlsh.net/

Here are two more interesting links that explain it better:

http://www.cnn.com/2009/LIVING/06/04/real.life.superheroes/index.html#cnnSTCPhoto
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real-life_superhero


Basically, they all do community service, and some people also try to stop muggings etc.  But what are the chances of seeing more than a couple of muggings a year anyways?

One guy or gal (can't remember) patrols london and finds cars that have been clamped for parking in the wrong places.  He uses some massive cutters to remove said clamp.


Yeah...

Those people are frickin' classic!  I discovers "RLSH"s awhile back and ROFLMAO'd!  Gotta love TEH INTERNETS.  You can find a lot of 'em on MySpace, too.  Ridiculous.  I love how a few of 'em have blogs and months after donning a costume to "fight crime," they write about taking their first ever martial arts class.  Good call, RLSH's, good call.

There's a good comic out now that's basically about this kind of thing: kid reads comics, kid's outta shape and can't fight, but dons a costume and sets out to fight people.... then he meets a 9-yr old girl with a katana and her dad... then calamity ensues.  Good comic, it's called Kickass.
