Urban Downhill Mountain Biking

Urban downhill mountain biking is one of the more extreme versions of cycling out there. Rather going through courses down a mountain, riders navigate through tight alley ways and jump off roofs to skip entire blocks. These events definitely draw a crowd. Spectators fill the streets to watch these guys take on their towns. The second video shows Wyn Maters' run through the town of Lyttelton. He barely lost first place, but he did a killer job!

These events are always so excited to watch. I think this is the first time I've seen it taking place outside of south america though! Hahaha

Love It Or Hate It: Would You Ever Skydive?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about EDM! Out of the 48 who gave your opinion, 25 of you said EDM is just 'meh'. Soooo... EDM has been voted to be NO GOOD!!!!! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about skydiving? Some of us can totally keep our chill when it comes to heights. Others - like Miley Cyrus, here - can definitely not. Which category do you, uh, 'fall' into? Is skydiving something you'd LOVE or absolutely HATE to do? @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei @EasternShell @musicundefined9 @peahyr @TerrecaRiley @MoisEsGaray @atmi @AlidaGarman @sanRico @orenshani7 @jannatd93 @ReadAnimateSwim @Astrohelix @dimplequeen @ChildofSparda13 @grapetoes2000 @sarahpjane @LittleHorn @justinasarmento @deilig @GalaxyTacoCat @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @Jason41 @kpopdeluxegirl @BlackDragon88 @Bobs @paularasnick @Animaniafreak @YumiMiyazaki @Patmanmeow @MarvelTrashcan @kawaiiporpoise @Xiuyeolhyun @MaggieHolm @xDaisyDaysx @yaakattackk @Starbell808 @KyleBerke @fatimajj23 @GabrielMarques @Alletaire @kkimberlyy @Priscillasdoor @chrisg3584 @brandontearss @bradleygialamas @justme29 @buddyesd @changoleon @Sara3 @felicityautumn @ssora @MorghanPorter @IzamarPalomo @realjoy @Heartofgold35 @mscocoasupreme @MyFunkySpell @ChakiahWallace @Krystalstar22 @KarlythePanda66 @JoeyNelson @TonyLepera @dianes6711 @Aripendragon @MichelleHolly @AviannaLin @seouls @AustinThurston @Sammyjuicoooo @divanicola05 @RavenQueen0810 @captpeter @Kourtland @Tsukasakrdcd @MistyTaylorByrd @MariPili @TylerCassalata @SarahRegulski @Melodicballoon @heyitskat @KellerBertrand @jiggzy19 @gogglesghost @BanalataBera @JayAi @mpandy @Gibbous1992 @Kody18 @ctsr1 @iamaweirdoo @Jasminep96 @CynthiaForeman @MzDawson31508 @MundaneGirl @DeniseNishikawa @lvplus2 @YourConscience @Bose @wrightally15 @jla23 @tiffany1922 @bettytolliver @Pocahontas41 @Dojjin @MelissaGarza @donmarques6 @VanessaAcosta @HollasiS @karlkahambwe @LexTrilly @HikariAkuhei @xander1981 @LinnyOk @colvitt @Isolate @Birdy915 @Nerdydemigod @na11 @CristalTrujillo @camilletoomer @selfishmachines
Mystery Artist Wanksy Paints Penises Around Potholes To Get Them Fixed [NSFW]
Armed with only a can of spray paint, an artist located in Manchester, England, is determined to rid the streets of potholes. How does one get rid of a potholes when city officials don't take the issue seriously? By drawing penises on them of course. The anonymous artist goes by the name "Wanksy", a clever spin-off of the famous street artists Banksy. The artist decided to draw attention to the "appalling" pothole-ridden streets after some of his cyclists friends were badly injured due to the potholes on the streets. “I wanted to attract attention to the pothole and make it memorable. Nothing seemed to do this better than a giant comedy phallus,” he said. “It’s also speedy, I don’t want to be in the road for a long time. It seems to have become my signature. I just want to make people smile and draw attention to the problem.” The artist uses non-permanent paint that washes out within a week or two. Despite the paint's short life span, the potholes have been getting fixed quicker than they were previously. So apparently a penis on the street elevates the urgency of road repair. "People will drive over the same pothole and forget about it,” the artist said. “Suddenly you draw something amusing around it, everyone sees it and it either gets reported or fixed." The local government is not amused. A council spokesman in Bury, a town in Greater Manchester, told the Evening News that the artist’s actions “are not only stupid but incredibly insulting to local residents. Has this person, for just one second, considered how families with young children must feel when they are confronted with these obscene symbols as they walk to school? Not only is this vandalism, but it’s also counter-productive,” the spokesman said. “Every penny that we have to spend cleaning off this graffiti is a penny less that we have to spend on actually repairing the potholes.” Regardless of whether the local government has to spend more to clean the graffiti, the artist is ultimately succeed in his goal. And from the looks of the repair jobs, the local government is spending no time or money trying to remove the graffiti. Rather, they are just covering the pothole with new asphalt.
97% vs 3%
Society is divided up between two categories. There's the 97% and the 3%. The 97% are the average people. They work 9-5 jobs, focused too much on their education, don't think outside the box, and simply quit on themselves and their goals (if they had any significantly big ones). Yes, some people chose to be a part of that percentile and that's ok because it's their choice. They wanted it to be easy. But for those who complain about it have no right to. They may be thinking "I work 8 hours a day. I deserve better and should be living a better life." In reality they don't. They knew what they were getting themselves into and what the rest of their life would be like. They have made their choice a have given up on what could have been, for them, a life full of rewards and luxury. They decide to see the obvious instead of what's further ahead, and when they see the obvious, they hurt themselves more by looking at it through one perspective. These are the people who have simply said "I will do my part in society no matter the cost." Education plays a huge factor in your destiny. Some dream jobs do require an advanced education. When this is present, education is ok to take part in for it is needed to achieve a dream. For jobs that don't require education, you simply are spending $100,000 to people who will never know your name. The 3% of people in society are the people who put themselves away from society. They're the entrepreneurs in this world, the people loaded with confidence, they ignore what people say, etc. These people realized they have so much potential in their life and they take the opportunity even when it's not present. To be where they are they took the risks and sacrifices and understood what outcomes could come. Every penny they've ever made was put into what they believed in even if it was a dream or goal so big it scared them. Fear is not present in these people. They realized the only thing that could really stop them was fear therefore they learned to overcome it. No matter the criticism they received, negative comments they've been told, or even simply being told "you can't do it." 24 hours was not enough for them to get what they needed done so they would put in a full 24 hours of work. Now, depending on who they are and their stories, they could have had an easy start or challenging one. Some entrepreneurs were lucky enough to have a family member who already started the business or gave a startup of $1,000,000. But some start with nothing but a dollar and a vision. One feels much more rewarding than the other and causes them to have a bigger appreciation for what they have and have done. The 3% are always hungry no matter what they have. They will not stop until they have what they want. There are many quotes for these people but the quote posted best describes them. So now that you know a little about the two sides of society, which one will you choose? Are you happy with where you stand? Or do you want better? It's never too late to change or start. All it takes is confidence, hard work, and a drive strong enough that you constantly think "I can't quit now." Keep pushing towards what you want and stop at nothing. Have a good day guys, Kyler
