I laugh at people who hate on pennyboards. I've skated and longboarded my whole life, but when I rode a penny I fell in love and don't even want to ride a normal board anymore. Pennies fucking rip. Other boards are so encumbering, but you can easily take a pennyboard anywhere. They're so fun because they're sketch as fuck. It actually takes a lot of skill to shred on one. It's a completely different kind of skating, fuck "real skaters" who hate on Pennies

Dude, my thoughts exactly.

I've found that most people who hate on it have never actually ridden one. I know because I was one of those people until I actually rode one. Haha totally agree about how fun they are due to the larger chance of eating shit.

Don't strap it. Take off the trucks and stow it inside. I have an old school board , so it's all asymmetrical and hard to just strap onto shit. But I end up tightening or loosening the thing depending on if I'm going for distance or fun, so it's only a few minutes to disassemble the thing and stow it.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

This guy with a website called "Rustic Cyberpunk", does computer stuff while living in a cabin in the woods.

You'll need a Tor browser to view his blog, though. I won't link it here because it's not a regular link, and I'm not sure if that's okay on here.

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!
