this is the hypothetical question/situations thread.

answer the previous post's question to the best of your abilities, and then present your own hypothetical question or situation.

details are key.

i'll start: suppose that instead of a martial artist, bruce lee became a skateboarder. in the current day. describe his style and trick selection.

He would do nothing bu Judo airs, and have Daewon Style.

Suppose there was a helmet law for skateboarders under 18 years of age.  more tickets vs. less skaters.

Dudes feet would definitely spread apart on a tre flip.    Even if that's not your flavor you have to admit when people do that it looks like martial arts.

i don't think so. bruce lee was all about efficiency of motion and ignoring traditional forms and styles in favor of pure fluidity and function.

putting extra flare on tricks=wasted motion and energy=a dishonest expression of the self.

this is not hypothetical. those laws are already in place all over the country.

yep. most places it's not enforced too hard, but its the law all over california now, and vancouver washington requires helmets for ALL nonmotorized vehicles for ALL ages. my friend carl has the tickets to prove it and he's a 30-something dad.

back to bruce lee.... or a new hypothetical, please.

So when people did the first tre flips they weren't as legs wide open and kicked as much I.E. Jason Lee and Rodney Mullen.    No dispute who did them first really.   They later became more "exagerated" and more prevalent even just this decade.   I think Stephans and plenty others are super spread out which could arguably been by your own words "ingnoring traditional forms" (Lee again), and well Stephan looks pretty "fluid" and "functional" to me.     Jus sayin'  its meer opinion.

Say a skate wizard walks into the room you're in and grants you 3 tricks that you will always get no matter what. Let's hear it.

puke, piss and shit. i didn't even have to consider it.

push button puking would be so awesome and handy in everyday life... the other two would just be timesavers.
 

what is the most degrading thing you would do in order to avoid having a hand cut off?
