    Well, that topic died...

    So... skateboarding, cycling, rollarblading, etc... what exactly are they considered?
    I mean, I've heard people call them sports, or 'Outdoor Activities', but... those don't really fit all that well...

      Cycling and Rollarblading can be sports or outdoor activities.

      Skateboarding on the other hand is something I like to call "inefficient."

      The Skateboarders at my college have shown that skateboarding is a sham. 95% of the time skateboarding is attempting some "trick", failing miserably, and getting pissed off...unless your trick happens to be "Ollie off this staircase, have the board fly off my feet, land on my ass, damage my tailbone and yell profanities" in which case, congrats you've succeeded.

      I feel that they're all outside activities for sure. Mainly on the premises that you don't do them inside, usually.

      I don't agree with you Char on your quip on skateboarding though. I mean, I'm not gonna deny what you say doesn't happen. Cause it does, a lot. But they're also a good way to go around and have fun, assuming you're not stuck on attempting to do a olli off the roof of a building or something.

        I swear to God, Bloodex, I've seen so many skateboarders at my college. They all attempt these tricks and fail miserably. Sure, skateboarding can be a fun way of moving around, but when it comes to doing trick, every single skateboarder has done nothing but fail their fancy "tricks" ninety-nine times out of 99.

        It almost makes me feel like professional skateboarding videos are fake.

        And they're real, no worries. As are the accidents that happen sometimes. :c

        Haha, way to take your anger out on the glitchy server.

        I only find skateboarding to be fun if you're going down a steep hill and trying desperately not to fall off or crash, tbh. Oddly enough, I only have legitimately fallen off (and hit the ground) once so far, though.

        I wouldn't consider those things to be sports, either. Though now I'm tempted to try to skateboard indoors. {:

        lol Dipu :D

        But yeah, I don't really have accidents all that often. The only one is usually tripping over my own feet. It always looks like I'll never be able to skateboard because I have balancing problems.

          Meh, I don't think I've tried to skateboard in years. The most I could do is go in a straight line if I tried to ride one right now.

          I get into accidents all the time, it's something I've grown accustomed to.

          And skateboarding is a lot harder than it looks, for the record. :I

          I've never gotten into a "small" accident before. I've never broken a bone, strained a muscle, or any of the stuff that normal kids get to experience. It's either been "I'm perfectly fine" or "I'm about to die".

          And yes, it's like a slip n' slide without the "fun" part.

          The only time I've fallen while skateboarding, it was partially voluntary- I had been going down a pretty steep hill with no means of stopping, so I jumped off. Lost my footing, fell, and slid down the alley (while the skateboard proceeded into the street without me). I must've landed pretty hard, though- tried to get up almost immediately, but wasn't expecting that much pain, and fell back down haha.

          I'm clumsy- but only some of the time. Though I tend to have good luck involving injuries. My sister's cat actually pierced my eyelid with his claws, but missed my eye. It looked like I was crying blood. :D

            Blood itself looks pretty cool...but having blood running from your eye... :D

            Though blood doesn't look as cool if you're actually hurt and can't get the darn cut to stop bleeding haha. After stepping on something glass (which broke it and drove a large piece of glass into my foot) a while ago, my foot continued to bleed heavily for over half of an hour. It stopped riiiight before it was stitched shut. They almost couldn't do it, because so much of the flesh was torn out hehe.

            I've had my fair share of lacerations over the years. If I've learned anything, it's this:

                Right... Dipu's a vampyre. :I
                (~Edit: AJGRYKVGHCFWJCVKABFK, and thread lock happy....)

                :D

                Is that how you got that hole in your foot?
                You do know you're not supposed to rip the skin off if the cut's that large, don't you? X)

                That would be great to learn how to use crutches as legs entirerly... so you could just lift both your legs up and still move around.
                Imagine being able to run after people, while on crutches.
                You know how hilarious that'd be?

                What, so knowing what blood tastes like makes you a vampire? Tcchhh. Blood actually tastes good. ];

                Yes haha. I hadn't even realized that you knew about that, Roc.
                Why would I have ripped the skin off...? I didn't do anything to it. Was funny to have a family member stumble into the bathroom (he had been sleeping) to find me chilling out in there with my foot over the bathtub so I wouldn't get blood everywhere. He grunted something about not worrying and that it just looks this bad because the blood is mixed with water. There was no water. It was just a lot of blood.

                  Mn? Oh, no, I know what blood tastes like too, but he makes it sound like he purposefully drinks it.
                  Just go get some blood pudding or something man...

                  I've actually laughed at that a couple of times now, sorry, it just seems really funny. X}
                  I can't really see you as the panicing type, Jess, to be quite honest.

                  Eh, I've still got some things I want to do tonight, so I'm gonna go now.
                  See you guys.

                    I don't think there are many people in the word that don't know what blood tastes like. For some reason a person's first reaction to a wound is to put it in their mouth anyway.

                    Edit: like pennies!

                    Are all men stupid?

                    That's right.

                    I can't really see you as the panicing type, Jess, to be quite honest.
                    Tchh you do realize that it happened years ago, right? X]
                    I don't panic about stuff like that anymore. Maybe momentarily if it bleeds heavily (like when I accidentally cut some of the flesh from my ankle), but that's it.

                    It doesn't bother me if I bite the inside of my mouth or, occasionally, have someone smack/hit/whatever my mouth hard enough to make me bleed. Blood tastes good, as odd as it sounds.

                    Is anyone else thinking of that thing posted on yahoo answers a long time ago? Some woman tried to turn her boyfriend into a vampire by sneaking "blood" into his food/drinks? Except she was an idiot and was feeding him something far worse than blood that she /thought/ was blood?

                    Edit:
                    Guess not. I:
