Snowboarding is gone

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

The powers that be told the snowboarding establishment 10 years ago to clean up its act. It has not done so. 70% of boarders are gang members and hoodlums. Snowboarding will not exist in 35 years.

Somewhere 50 years from now there will be a monastery somewhere in the Appalachians where devout followers of the church of boardom will keep the sport alive in a sea of.... Telemarkers.

Hmmm... that reads like more of an LSD rant to me... although things are spelled correctly. Maybe just paint or glue huffing?

You gotta be on the right frequency. Then everything makes sense.

I took a class from Kenneth at CU in the early 1980s.

 

"Psychic capital is a term first used by Boulding (1950). Capital is an accumulation of wealth, and with psychic capital, the accumulation is one of desirable mental states, which admittedly are highly transitory in nature. The mental states could be memories of pleasure, success, achievement, recognition, and the desire to add to psychic capital is likely to be a powerful motivating force. Exchanges involving increases or decreases of psychic capital are likely to occur at any time, either through decision or through the turn of events.[7]

However, failure in a task could also lead to a depletion of psychic capital. An accumulation of negative memories of failures, disasters,atrocities, or perceived injustices and indignities (as either recipient or perpetrator) could be called negative psychic capital. Negative psychic capital can also be a powerful motivating factor, in the pursuit of satisfaction through revenge or a settling of scores. In either of its forms as positive or negative psychic capital, this package of collective memory is an essential link between collective memory and collective mental state.[7]"

Let's get this thread back on topic. Telemark skiing with cross-country and alpine skis will fill the empty niche created by the disappearance of snowboarding. 

 

"Telemark skiing with cross-county skis is a wonderful sport and should be wholehearted promoted by alpine resorts throughout America and the world." -- Suzy

Yes. Looking at this persons posts, I feel I am witnessing some sort of performance art that I do not yet understand.
