What?! It's not about parkour?!?! CURSE YOU!!! :-Sarcasm

yes, heaven forbid that something in socialize has nothing to do with Parkour

and, no, not an order yet but I'll talk with the team and we probably will come up with an idea that we'll need graphicated

Who needs Parkour when you can drive? Amirite? :P :-Sarcasm

lol, I think you have that backwards,  who needs to drive when you have Parkour

(PS: I know you were joking btw)

She does Speed vaults but to speed vault 8 feet would be a beast of an endeaver...

I'd say Gate vault or Pop Vault would be best

yea...  just, you know, in the Free Runner print

Like, maybe have a map of the US on a spread (2 page and all) and have dots with the lines that go to a picture and a description or something

push how NOT evil Parkour is even though the media makes it look underground and ilegal and evilishly badful... just, you know, in less stupid words

Yea, I'm mainly joining to learn some things.  We've been learning photoshop in Web design lately (Granted I feel epic since I'm way ahead because GIMP pretty much copied PS lol) it's too much fun.  Today we made custom liscense plates for a car Bevels and all...  I'm learning some of the nit picky things you have to do to get things just right.  (Self taught means I missed a LOT of secrets)

Actually, we are looking for a nice design for out team.  We don't quite know how we want it to look...  kind of Urban Graffiti with a subtle and calm back stream

dude...  joining!  I love 2D (Digital) art!  I'm not too far into it yet but I'm working with it and loving every moment!

I've mainly done Real photo manipulation for funny comments (Like putting deep dish pizzas in place of the tires on a corolla because a friend said he wanted deep dish rims on his corolla {I replied with, Mmmmmm Deeeeepppp Diiissssshhhhhh.... followed by the picture obviously})

finally someone who understands what I mean when I type XP

I haven't done it in a while because I got tired of people asking me why I had put experience at the end...  [WTF]

Socialize / Re: x^(-1) 1000th Derivative
« on: October 23, 2009, 07:10:22 PM »
actually, if 2a=a then a=0...  try it if you don't see that...

Also, good point about the 1000!x^-1001

btw, it is going to be posative since it is on an even derivative

but yea, we had a big discussion about that in class and no one thought of that...  What makes me mad is that I love !  I freak people out with that all the time...

Chain rule isn't that bad once you get it down.

It is just, derivative of the outside and leave the inside alone and then times that by the derivative of the inside

so basically, sin(x2)

derivative of sin is -cos



so that comes out to be


it is easy to overthink though

but yea, just think of it like those russian nested doll things


Blah'(blah2(blah3)) * blah2'(blah3) * blah3' then simplify

also, for quotient rule, hi-d-lo minus lo-d-hi over lo squared (numerator prime times denominator minus denominator prime times numerator all over denominator squared)

PS: You took all of the fun out of it but hey, at least I know that the 1000th derivative of x^-1 is...

I still love how I made a CD for the band Cake (Mine got scratched all the freak up...) so I call it my Cake Mix

Hotspot map (Not that you truly have hotspots in PK/FR since it is for everywhere...  just hot training spots for before you hit the real world...  well, hopefully not HIT the real world because that hurts most of the time but you know...

In Parkour terms, the video from Team 1 should have won.  It flowed, had the freedom, and showed the spirit of Parkour instead of just being a show for the people like Team 2 had...  It was great in the metaphor of Monkeys chasing the banana!  absolutely great

The whole thing was great because they kept pushing the necessity of training and safety involved while showing that even the best can fall.  It wasn't TOO ridiculous like most of their other shows and again, mainly, it pushed the present danger and need to perfect before you push.  Great job guys!

Socialize / x^(-1) 1000th Derivative
« on: October 22, 2009, 05:05:29 PM »
So...  I got bored in calculus (Sad that I have that much time in AP Calc...) and started to wonder what the 1000th Derivative of x^(-1) would look like...  needless to say, I'm not going to go through with figuring that out...

I mean, derivatives are easy and all but to the 1000th would take forever if I was working alone on it

so I was wondering if anyone here wanted to help out for the heck of it (And no, this isn't another one of those "Do my homework for me without me directly asking you to" threads...  No teacher would give a kid this to do...

anyways, for those who don't know, Derivatives are easy if you use the Power Rule

basically, x^(-1) is f(x) {That is pronounced, F of X [Basically, f(x)=x^(1) }

The first derivative is f'(x) {F prime of X} and for that, you take the Power (-1) and multiply it by the coefficient of x (At this point, the coefficient of x for f(x)=x^(-1) is 1 {Because it is 1 times x^(-1) }) and then subtract 1 from the power

so f'(x) = -1x^(-2)

then f"(x) {The second derivative} is +2x^(-3)

the third, f"'(x) is -6x^(-4) {Multiply posative 2 by negative 3 (The coefficient by the power) and then subtract 1 from the power)

after that, the derivatives are written with numbers instead of apostraphes


f{4}(x) is +24x^(-5)
f{5}(x) is -120x^(-6)

so, if anyone is interested or completely bored out of their mind beyond the point of the Grammar Nazi thread and would like to do one or two every now and then, please, it would sooth my mind (Which drives me out of itself a lot of times...)

Movement / Re: Parkour derived from Nature...
« on: October 22, 2009, 04:49:44 PM »
yea...  I love it mainly because it reminds me of times when I had nothing to worry about due to the calmness of it all...  Takes me back to my younger years (Not that I'm old, just...  Younger years) when nothing matter because I didn't know that anything mattered...  calmness that I can rarely feel anymore.  This is why I do Parkour, it frees me from the Drama of daily life and takes me back to those times when I truly WAS free

btw, this probably should have been in Socialize though I understand from the talk about landing and all

its nitro circus -_-nuff said LOL

Nitro Circus is beast simply because they are trying to do insane things that they actually CAN do, unlike Jackass which was them doing stupid things and failing before they started...  (It MIGHT have been funny if they got half way into something and THEN failed but no...  it was basically fail from the start)
