I need you guys to spam this link wherever possible and to please fill out the form yourself. There really is nothing that will benefit any one of us if this bill goes through

Copy/paste this text if you don't want to type out the description yourself

The PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) is a threatening sequel to last year's COICA Internet censorship bill that would -- like its predecessor -- invite Internet security risks, threaten online speech, and hamper Internet innovation.

Please consider urging your members of Congress to reject this dangerous bill:

this really makes me mad. my little brother went through cancer, is all tore up from chemo, and it sickens me to see that if some one were to have cancer the fricken doctors or whatever wont let them be cured over the counter.
Yeah I know how you feel. I remember back in 6th grade hearing about this doctor who had figured out that by using electric shock treatment, you could kill cancer cells. She found that they can take way less than the non-cancerous cell, and consequently this would rid you of cancer in a few short weeks. I never heard about her after that though. Then a year ago a guy who made nanobots that would seek out cancer cells, and then you could heat them with radio waves (totally harmless to the human) and the nanobots would literally burn the cancer cells into oblivion.

I'm sure there have been countless more stories about it too...

It's all the government I tell ya!
They put cancer cells in our food, this allows them to collect money from organizations that claim they are working towards a cure (Which has probably already been made a long time ago).
Along with the monetary gain, the cancer can kill many people before they are 65. If you're dead before you're 65, the government doesn't have to pay you retirement benefits.
It all comes down to money really...

Is it bad I just thought of all of this and it kinda makes sense?
Kinda speechless.
Yeah I could see most of that being true. Almost everything around us is a carcinogen - even fluoride. It's sad that you always hear of "cures" that get a 3 minutes special on the news, but are never heard of again. This one is a definite cure that we know the side effects for already, and it's not even going to be mentioned.

Population control too? Ya never know

It sadly doesn't surprise me that this hasn't been circulating on the news... The Pharmaceutical companies can't continue to make extreme profit on cancer patients if we all learn about this, so they'll try to hush it up.

Please pass this around and/or research it and see if you can find more articles. I'd rather save people than see a few people's bank accounts grow

This is a general overview of shoes (semi-outdated for the general view now as this thread was started in 05)
http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/topic,184.0.html

And browse this:
http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/board,128.0.html

You'll have to find what suits you (or in this case, your friends) preferences. If they like padded shoes, go for those, if they like lighter shoes, go for those. Lighter padding + good grip is what I personally look for. The more padding, the less you feel, and the less you notice if you have bad form.

There's no need to buy Ariakes or 5.10 Freerunners right away (shoes specifically made for parkour) and they're all around 100 dollars. The KO (Know Obstacles) shoes are around 50 bucks and have gotten good reviews
http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/topic,27291.0.html

Feiyues have become popular, and I myself have a pair. Their bottoms are rounded so you have to watch yourself until you wear em down (I've rolled my ankle in them) but they're extremely cheap and have pretty good grip. 20-25 bucks a pair, with shipping, off of Amazon

If you like going barefoot and you're willing to drop some cash, I'd suggest Vibram Fivefingers as they're AMAZING in my opinion (as well as many others)

Middle weight cotton taekwondo pants. Lightweight with a tough material that protects and they are designed for putting your foot upside someones head so super flexible. Plus they are flowly so they look awesome. Get em in black or get em in white and dye them whatever color you want. I love em!!!!!
I actually have a pair of white and pair of black :)
They're amazing, as they're MADE to let you put your legs in crazy positions

Oh yeah I just meant from an aesthetic perspective. . .I needed to get away from those steps and my webster just wouldn't have done it.  I'm all for efficiency over aesthetics, but I'll take both wherever I can get them :D

Alright good... I was just making sure you weren't the "crowd pleaser" type... That tends to lead to injury...

Never mind then :)

I enjoyed it, but I agree that your style is crazy haha

While I think seeking improvement is always a good thing, you sound like you're being a BIT hard on yourself. If something feels right (like a two foot front as opposed to a one) then just do it. As long as it works, and it works without injury, then I don't see why you can't do it. Looks don't mean anything if you got a crazy guy chasing you haha

Letting the OP know just in case he wasn't subscribed to the thread. More people had their input in the other one so I figured someone searching this topic in the future would prefer to get more information in one thread as opposed to, well, more than one thread lol

Well Tex I assume you came from the Sweatpants thread as I did....

I will assume the OP is coming here as well

I like wearing Adidas pants (or similar, the brand doesn't matter)



I don't get the loud scratchy kind, I use the silky kind. I wear mostly black variants and I stay cool. They have pockets (granted my stuff falls out pretty easily) and they are extremely flexible... They also look pretty decent in my opinion and I wouldn't feel weird wearing them to a semi-formal place.


EDIT: I wear these on a daily basis now, not just for training. They're comfortable and I like to always be prepared
