Me without parkour is like getting a new game system 14 years before the games come out, you know there's potential buuuuuut you just can't see how to use it, I would be that scrawny little kid in my avatar still, i would be very unintelligent since parkour has opened new windows to learning for me. I would be anti-social still, and play wow for days, I would be just another person without it, more of a hollow person with no life, i still have no life but at least i know how to live  ;D
Oh and I would be around 5 pairs of shoes and 3 pants richer  8)

2 Samuel 22
30 For by you I can run against a troop; By my God I can leap over a wall.
33 God is my strength and power, And He makes my way perfect.
34 ...he sets me on my high places.
37 you enlarged my path under me; so my feet did not slip.

id still be afraid of things. parkour helps me get over fear. i just relate real life experience to parkour. if something in life gives me doubt or fear i just think back to when i had doubt or fear of that precision gap on a high ledge that i knew if i failed id bust my nuts on the fence between it, or doing sumthing i havent done before and say "well if i did that then i can get threw this".

If I didn't have Parkour, I'd be un-motivated and fat.

I also wouldn't have my sometimes-creepy-yet-usually-awesome blue synesthesia! It'd be the same-old orange for food.
Fecteau, you are the first person I will turn to when I break up with Micah, haha

I would be that skinny-ass who plays videogames all day and night, without any real ambitions, who gives up really easy at the slightest challenge.

I'd most likely be at the same place I am, just less happy. That and playing WoW, not that I already dont, but more like my uber nerdy friends that have no life

I personally can't imagine life without that amazing view of your surroundings, for lack of a better description, "parkour vision"  ;D

Without parkour, my mind would still be in the same systematic mindset that a lot of people have right now.
As well as that, I'd look at things as obstacles, not opportunities, both outside and in the mind.

^Yes, parkour vision too.

Might I also add, i would've had significantly less dangerous encounters with the Stego. Like that little hole in my leg. Ouch.

I'd probably be in College and playing a lot of video games when not there.

Everyone can try to get rid of us, my theory is, they need to catch us first :P

I'd still be keeping in shape with jogging and lifting weights because I like being fit, but I'd be bored as hell and have nothing to look forward to in life.
