A bunch of terrorists.... just kidding ;) !!!

Lars said...

Terrorists is good but I'm starting to lean towards a "belligerence of skateboarders".

chiefjudy.com said...

That might work, too ;)...

tyndra said...

maybe "skateboarders" could be replaced by "pubescents"? ;) [or does a breed of adult skateboarders exist?]

Lars said...

there are some physically adult skaters around, mentally though they're no different from the teenage ones.

Pathologe said...

chiefjudy was far too quick. Otherwise I would have stated "a bunch of idiots"

So they are already preparing for their retirement: living on wheels?

Lars said...

I think the living on wheels be far to expensive by the time these "kids" reach retirement age, if they don't kill themselves on their skateboards before they get that old.

And if someone is skateboarding he´s an idiot hmmm all the guys i used to skate with are let me think ... andi is an architect now, i work for a software company, jose has his own business,Moe is a teacher ... by the way the architect is still skateboarding so you guys better come up with some better group names ;)
