Please, no. Pinterest makes me want to rip my eyes out.

Wtf is the point of that site anyway. It's like an online scrap book of wish list shit. Like I really care what necklace or shoes you want to buy. Ugh.

Yeah well... you kids just got rid of a political forum. Now Poutanen has no chance to ever make a mature and concise post.

ok, I am ashamed to admit this but I have come up with a drinking game.... I ride with another forum member and he was cracking up when I told him of my little game!! I'll leave him out of this for now... Im a light weight with booze so I would never make it thru a thread....


so, the rules! Anytime Poutenen post contains the word....

"camber" -> drink!

any mention of his gf-> chug
mentions h ow his gf rides a traditional cambered board and LIKES IT THAT WAY -> drink three times
posts a picture of his girlfriend -> shotgun a beer
posts of picture of his ironing board -> do a shot with no chaser
compares his T7 to his ironing board -> 2 shots
argues over some semantics that matter to no one but himself? -> drink until you fall over. (the lib tech best camber thread is my #1 example)


also, any mention of "alpine" "boardercross" or "hardboot" is an automatic drink one time.


you know I love you right? <3

I'm here ish! The lack of females sticking around is not just isolated to this site. I am a mod on a longboarding website, and even the formerly prevalent females have fallen off the map for 10 bajillion different reasons. Though at this point in time, I'm going to blame sparkly things for distracting such users.

alternative theory....guys don't have any social life....thus on the webz...at least that is my case.

My daughter somewhat does some facebook, pinkbike, powderroom and is considering wolfpack. But is probably more into a varied and speedy chat interaction than a strickly focused forum. And if she needs advice there are plenty of guys to help and give her shit without being on a forum. She does hang with the guys and is often only 1 of maybe 2-3 gals that are in a group of 10-12 guys (skier, riders, dh'llers) and is generally willing to put up with their antics and give them shit right back, willing to go shred/rip and keep up. The other day she went out with 3 guys and did a 4 hour skin to a secret pillow stash...not many women willing and able to do that.

I hazard to say, at the local hill, there are perhaps more percentage of accomplished women riders than at any other hill and they are well aware of the bro/brah thing. But still, the gals that are comfortable with and accepted in the bro/brah thing in any sport are relatively rare and they often have older brothers and were raised or took to being a tomboy....perhaps we ought to poll the gals about this.

i don't think girls enjoy listening/reading about guys bitching about mundane shit... and that is precisely what goes on between users on special interest forums such as this one .. guys of all ages bitching at each other about what they think is correct, and trying to convince everyone their way is best; for the most part. members on forums like this normally bitch at each like a bunch of catty females...
