"Hey, I used to too; it's not a big deal."

You might have read the Ben Cousins-related post on this web-based information resource; you might have not. Regardless, the "art" or "sport" of skateboarding promotes the ethos that it's "not what you do", but rather, "how you do it". It is like music to my ears in a world where supposed "success" seems to outshine the concept of ethics far too often.

This web-based video upload is not likely to move the ground beneath your feet or within your mind (hell, you might not even get through the entire fifty seconds); but, for me, it is further evidence for why skateboarding is part of a future where the burdens of 'judgement' and 'superiority' disintegrate, making way for alternative concepts, such as 'community', 'fun' and 'creativity'.

Lest We Forget

In over 220 years of the U.S. Constitution, the 18th Amendment is the only Amendment to have ever been repealed. What was the "18th Amendment", I can't actually hear you ask? Read on... 

"The 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution banned the manufacture, sale, and transportation of alcoholic beverages in the United States and its possessions. Contrary to common belief, it did not prohibit the purchase or consumption of alcohol."

Fingers crossed ...

... for Australia's legal sector (but not with both hands, of course).
