A motorcycle functions entirely in accordance with the laws of reason, and a study of the art of motorcycle maintenance is really a miniature study of the art of rationality itself.  ~Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Your dad skateboarded before you did and he’s got the street surfing skills to prove it. He was the Albert Einstein of Evil Knievel creations. With a stoned vision of riding the pavement wave, he strapped wheels to board and got shreddy land style. He’s kickflipped panties off and grinded pools like a porn star of skate. The middle class didn’t know how to handle this new menace to the suburbs, which is why they tried to pass laws to stop him from getting gnar on public property. 
So hipsters, when you’re kick-pushing your way down a bike lane or heelflip-falling while trying to show off for the apathetic female onlookers, remember this…
Your dad not only did all the killer shit that you do, but there is a good chance he invented it too. 

Hey Hipsters……try standing for something!

When I grow up I want to look like this.
Time to grow up.
