mythreads for later.
but fo real people, this guy could be on to somthing with this, lets help him out and make a good report. ns is good at swaying contests, lets start helping fellow ns'ers with their homework.
So you don't enjoy reading interviews, being 'upto date' with whats happening in the industry, team updates, magazine articles, or even content on NS, seeing pictures of events, video blogs, or things of the such?
PM sent to the guy who started this thread, I'd love to help you out.
He had said:
writing papers or doing projects about skiing is for retards. unless you are an engineer.
I was just going off of what he said... I was just trying to say thats what many people do for a living and or a passion... and most of them aren't engineers.
I don't understand why theres all this hate, the dudes just trying to write a paper about our sport, which in turn is going to show others what our sport is sort of about, that its more than just a sport for many people... its a way of life.
I don't get sick of seeing memembers of our skiing community reach out for a response or some help... I do get sick of kids hating on dumb shit though.
I'm not trying to start a stupid e-battle or something... I just don't understand why theres all this hate in skiing. We're all here for the same reason... keep it that way.
1. How does skiing make you feel?
It makes me feel awesome. I couldn't be any happyer when I land a new trick or when I'm just shredding out there with some friends.
2.How would you describe skiing?
- its culture?
It is a very special culture. Everyone is very nice and is out there to have fun. Everyone can show who he is in his own style And it's just great that way. Everyone is unique even if we all do and live for the same thing.
3. How does skiing provide for your physical and/or mental needs?
Skiing makes me forget about school and my problems. I just go out there to ski and have fun and get better. I stop thinking about anything else, it's way more than a drug. And I get a sick raccoon at the end of the year :D
4. How often do you ski? and how far do you travel in order to ski?
I ski every week end and I travel around 45 minutes to get there and 45 minutes to get back.
5. What is some termonology?(this is being used to show that skiing has its own language, in order to deal with the linguistic area of anthropoly, im going to present it as if it is its own dialect)
Jib, Cork, bio etc... , stocked, gang (as in cool), afterbang, steeze, There are more but I can't think of any other :/
6. Has skiing shaped your personality(has it changed you, does it define you)? if so in what ways has it done so?
It sure changed me. Now all I can think of is skiing. I even started to dress more baggy since I started freeskiing so it changed my style for sure. Every little thing makes me think of freesking. And my grades got better cause I want to ski so much and I need good grades to ski.
7. Have you ever been injured skiing? if so, why do you continue skiing knowing the dangers first hand?
Yes, I broke my arm and had a couple of minor injurys. I am always sore after a week end of skiing haha. I keep skiing cause it's the only thing I think about, it's the thing I like the most on earth and it's just way too sick. I can't picture myself not skiing.
Hopefully this helped sorry for the bad english!
