A word has to be recognized x number of times before it will be put into a dictionary. I understand that you value your education and all but you don't know shit. When blogs came out it was an unrecognized word for so long till enough people started using it. Same thing goes on with flexation I doubt you know many boot fitters, but it's a common term amongst us to describe stance alignment and flex points in a boot. Pretty similar to the word flexion actually.

hmmmmmmm maybe, but I've hung out at skate/snow shops for a large chunk of my life and have not heard flexation. not saying that it isn't something that isn't used in your area, but using the fact that the word "blog" wasn't in the oxford dictionary doesn't stand up very well. I will support this by pointing out that the word blog WAS MADE UP by a company to name a product, and people who were in on this new internet phenomena attached meaning the words new meaning. Its not like they just made up a new word. Flexation is a modification of the word flex, and the suffix ation that means something is in action, so flexation could mean the act of flexing, however I do not see a specific use for this word where another more formal form of the word flex could be used. Personally I think all of you boot fitters just made up this word because you wanted to make yourself appear to know your shit when your making a sales pitch about a certain boot. If you find me a legit internet boot description that says this boot has soft flexation, or something similar instead of it saying this boot has a soft flex I will accept the word flexation.

This is my point they put tons of other modified words in the dictionary, like articulation. there just it isn't linguistically correct to put the suffix ation behind flex.

You just can't let it rest. You have some hard on to try and prove you're some fucking genious? I'll just say it now from reading stuff you've answered you don't know shit but try to make it out like you do. Quit while you're ahead.

you probably also think that there is no way we could have evolved from proteins and amino acids, or that the earth is only a few million years old. w/e dude live in your ignorance.

While I'll let you two carry on, I will state you've got the wrong state of mind with that statement. The evolution theories are indeed, theories at best, not facts. So saying someone is ignorant because they believe in something else contrast to theories that are not even 200 years old yet or theories in general is actually ironically, making you ignorant. However I believe you said that out of whim of hasty reply instead of thinking that through

Theories are what they are, which is not facts. Personally I don't believe in the whole humans evolved from that crap and big bang just happened either, not to say evolution for species isn't possible without getting into details. Point being make sure you know what is what, continue on

"your probably" is you're. While I see plenty of grammatical errors on these forums, I only point this out to you because you appear damn well educated.

I didn't take his post as that, definitive. Simply saying there are other possibiilities. Anyways this is not my fight. On a lighter note, glad to see the Snowboardin2137 threads are dying down.....Oh wait this is his thread

"you probably also think that there is no way we could have evolved from proteins and amino acids, or that the earth is only a few million years old. w/e dude live in your ignorance."
