Posted:I take it your refering to the recent discussions on Fire Breathing, Depression, and any others i may have over looked. Being a person who has taken part in these discussions, more so in the first of the two, i think everyone is conducting the discussions fine, if anything is otherwise it takes no more than a day to straighten things out. I know i'm not the only one to notice this, i remember a few others posting about how happy they are to be a part of a community where this is possible.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:Good point tiamat

Things do seem to be a bit heavy lately; too many people preaching from soapboxes IMHO.

So I agree, lighten up dudes

Well if the world was a less silly place and a lot less complicated then we could be a lot more silly a lot of the time.

Posted:i blame Onewheeldave.

he's been responsible for a large portion of all this 'serious discussion' business.

i theorise that unicycles have a detrimental effect on seratonin levels, causing an unhealthy tendency toward taking things seriously.

if unicyclists had two wheels instead of one then they'd have a much more balanced outlook.

Ohh! You are so, so wrong...

The fact is that riding a unicycle will take your seratonin to a whole new level- unicycling makes you happy!


On a serious note, many people in this world are far from happy, a lot of these 'serious' discussions are sharing the experiences of those who have overcome problems and are very benefical.

Posted:"lighten up and stop being wussies"

Do you know how this sounds to somebody who's depressed and who's life is all going wrong? It's a slap in the face. It's like saying thier troubles are meaningless.

I'm liking seeing this forum used for true communication and seeing people in such a widespread community support each other. It's actually restored some of my interest in HoP, espicaly the social section which had taken an impressive dive into pointlessness.

Posted:theres always silly threads and serious threads. if you dont want a deep and heavy discussion, the solution is simple....

DONT READ IT!

and go to the other threads like i do and post stupid comments.

is that hard?! surely if a thread title was 'depression', 'exploring christianity', 'the new homophobia', 'abstinence,' 'my life sucks', to cite some examples, its pretty obvious there some very serious discussion going on, where people are venting some of there innermost secrets, fears, and morals, - sometimes they need to get something off their chest, sometimes they need HELP!

i note the irony that ive seen some members who are requesting that we lighten up have been involved in some very personal and volatile threads in the past.

HoP always goes through phases with the type of postings - serious to silly to random. it that respect its as unpredictable as us....

ok, rant over.... back to posting stupid comments.

For example, going forwards your balance point is in front of the wheel and you're falling forwards whilst continually bringing the wheel beneath.

The only time you're actually balanced is on the rare occasions during a unplanned dismount when, through chance, you end up unable to fall cos you're directly over the axle; that is a most unpleasent experience up always ends in being thrown of very unpredictably.

Thankfully it's rare, it's happened to me only twice this year.

As for bike comparisons, i happily do off road stuff on a uni that would scare me ****less on a bike, purely because if you bale out on a uni, 98% of the time you'll come out on your feet, and if not you'll go to ground but land well.

Whereas a bale on a bike can be very hazardous due to the risk of landing on a bit of the bike.

Also, on a uni you can't go that fast, and on downhills, cos of the fixed crank thing, you tend to be very much in control.

this assumes you can ride well, and don't forget the helmet and wrist guards.

Posted:personally I feel that Dentrassi is right.
Yea man -Fist in the air-

But yes sometimes even us fire spinners have our share of problems and burning everything to the ground just doesnt do it for some people after the fifth or sixth time. I mean the first time always for fun and well there the secon....opps i think i went a bit far on that one.
Actually that's now my style of releasing my issues and some of our fellow family members here could use a little help or a pat on the back.
Be nice and help someone out sometimes
Or you can go and light it up and burn you oldself and any of your problems away
Its a wonderful time to be having fun isnt it?
