    Hey Everyone,

    I’d go with a “sorry I haven’t posted in a while” apology, but just read a few posts down and you’ll see plenty.

    I wanted to tell you about a great website, called Yahoo! Answers. It is a place where you can ask and answer questions. There are categories for everything, from religion to history to poetry. You can find very many helpful answers and questions here. The people on Yahoo Answers have saved me countless times in situations where I need help right away, like when I had a huge report due and couldn’t get my printer to work. Turns out I needed to install some software on my computer that came with the printer.

    Anyways, I highly recommend you check it out. It is not only great fun, but an awesome knowledge database! You can search through past questions.

    You can also connect with other people, update a profile, create an avatar, have an email address, and much more! This is all possible through a Yahoo! account. Go to http://yahoo.com to sign up for one.

    Why giant corporations aren’t “evil”

    A lot of people lately think that giant corporations are evil and made up of terrible people who are greedy liars and that small businesses are good and honest and are far better. I’m here to tell you you’re completely wrong.

    I’m gonna tell you a made-up story, but it is similar to what probably happened. The setting is 20 years ago in a small town in arkansas. There are 4 department stores in town. One called Wal-Mart, the others department store #1, #2, and #3. They were all pretty good department stores, but the store called Wal-Mart had better customer service, sold better quality products, and so people shopped there a lot more than at department stores #1, #2, and #3. Over time, Wal-Mart accumulated so much money that they opened another store, and another, and another. Now, in 2009, they are a giant corporation with hundreds of stores. People who don’t know this story just assume that Wal-mart is evil and the smaller department stores are much better. Well, 20 years ago, Wal-Mart started off just like the other department stores, but was the best department store there was in the area back then. So then they expanded and got to be a big corporation. They didn’t start off huge, they started off just like the other department stores and because they had better customer service and sold better quality products, they are the huge mega-chain of department stores they are today.

    Understand yet? Corporations aren’t evil!

    My second story also takes place 20 years ago in 1989, but in Seattle. There is a store called Starbucks, and Coffee Store #1, #2, and #3. The 4 coffee stores were all very small and only had 1 store, but Starbucks made a better cup of coffee than the other coffee stores, and then made enough money to expand. The only reason they are a huge chain of coffee stores now is that they made a better cup of coffee 20 years ago. They started off the same as the other coffee stores, but they got to be the best by making the best coffee, its simple.

    So now hopefully you see that small businesses aren’t always the best. Also, larger corporations employ way more people, offer better deals on lots of products, which is always good in a bad economy like this. Also, they offer better healthcare than most small businesses can afford. Larger corporations also circulate more money through the economy, and also give back more taxes to the government, which comes right back to spend on you.

    Corporations are not evil!

    Stuff

    Update: I am planning to change a big idea of this site. I don’t skate as much anymore (I still do though) but I have played Tennis since I was 11 or 12 (One of the two) and I’m pretty good. So expect a new header soon.

    Hey everyone! Sorry there hasn’t been a post in a few days, I’ve been pretty busy and stuff. So for now… I decided not to do the lottery because I want this blog to myself. No, that’s not being selfish because you can just go create one yourself for free.

    Now, for something…. “unusual”? I’ve decided I don’t want this blog to be one of those blogs that have 25 pages. Even though I only have 4 (I count the main page as a page too because it is. So I’m going to have the rest of the skateboarding page in a post (This post actually) so its not completely gone from this site. So enjoy the page here.

    Here is the awesome skateboard I have:

    Here’s some skateboarding help, if you need it.
    How to Ollie: (Regular Footed)
    1. Put your right foot on the tail of the board
    2. Put your left foot in the middle of the board
    3. This is what I didn’t get at first- step down as hard as you possibly can with your left foot, sometimes it helps to crouch down so you can touch the cement you are on.
    4. Then, after you pop it, slide your left foot up the board with the left side of your left foot. Not the bottom of your left foot, the left side.
    5. Then, just come back down! Congratulations, you can ollie!
    What it will Look Like:

    How to Kickturn: (Regular Footed)
    This is vital to skateboarding, and its pretty easy.
    1. Press down with your right foot, not as hard as an ollie, in fact, not very hard at all.
    2. Then, while the tail (The back) of the board is still in the air, swing with your left foot, but still on the board.
    3. Congratulations! You can kickturn!
    What it will look like:

    Kickflip: (Regular Footed)
    This is a hard trick. You have to be able to ollie really high to do this, like 5-7″
    1. Start with an ollie
    2. But while you are in the air, flick the board with your left foot to make it spin underneath you in the air. Now you see why you have to ollie very high!
    What it will look like:

    Casper:(Regular Footed)
    1. Turn the board upside-down
    2. Put your right foot on top of the tail
    3. Put your left foot about 2 inches left from the bolts nearest to your right foot
    4. Swing around and stay in that position
    5. Flip the Board over and land on it
    What it will look like:

    Pogo: (Regular Footed)
    1. Stand the board straight-up on its tail (Or Nose)
    2. Put your right foot on the bottom trucks
    3. Put your left foot on the nose (Or Tail) on the other side of the board
    4. Balance, and start hopping! This takes a little practice to get your balance right though.
    Unlike the picture, you can have your hands on the top trucks, that is someone who is very good at the Pogo.
    What it will look like:

    Help with Ramps…. Something I need

    I’m going to delete the page, so just view this post instead.

    New Header! And Poll!

    I like it! It took me about 30 minutes to make and edit and find all the right size pictures. Plus World Industries is my favorite Skate Company, so it fits! You have probably seen the guys on the skateboard in the header, but you probably don’t know their names. The guy on the left is Wet Willy, and the guy on the right is Flameboy.

    Poll! Do you like the new Header?

    Another Rainy Day…

    God I hate rainy days all I can do is play computer games and do this and chat when my friends are on Gmail. Why does it have to rain?!?!?!?! No, wait that’s a stupid question. The trees and plants have to be watered! But then again, couldn’t we have those mini sprinklers that pop up out of nowhere and water everything at a certain time…. Automatic Sprinklers are handy!

    Now…. For a WordPress glitch! Did you fellow site owners ever notice that when you delete a word, the word counter doesn’t go down? Not a very important glitch but still….

    All I have to do now is some French Homework. Its always easy but we get homework from that class every night and that gets really annoying! But the class is really easy- the teacher has a bunch of pictures of a pen or some random object for us to identify. So I just basically sleep while the rest of the class says it all. It pretty easy and I don’t have to do anything!

    Also I just saw the great movie Ironman! It’s about this guy named Tony Stark who is the CEO of a major weapons company. He invents a destructive missile and goes to Iraq to test it on front of U.S. Army soldiers. Then, they get into Jeeps to go somewhere and are ambushed by terrorists. Tony is the only survivor. He is captured by terrorists. Find out how he escapes and watch the movie!

    Fiesta of Hits?!?!?!

    I just got 100+ hits since last night. This is really good (for me). Some of you blog owners with way mores obviously don’t think this is at all an accomplishment, but remember, you were like this once!

    I found 2 really good songs on YouTube by “DaveDays”. His band is really good and I’ll post the videos here.
    “Miley I can’t wait to see you” -Davedays

    “The Nice Kitty Song” -Davedays (To understand this you have to see the Mean Kitty Song)

    Enjoy the videos!

    Memorial Day

    This the day to honor the brave American Soldiers who fought so courageously in American Wars for us to have freedom and independence. So if you haven’t already put out your flag, do it now. The least you can do is show those brave soldiers you honor them by putting out your flag and taking it down today at sunset. I already put mine up. It took me 5 minutes. And 5 minutes later today. You’re probably not too busy to do that, right?
    But remember, if it starts to rain (Like it might near my house) take the flag down and inside!

    Here is the History of the American Flag:

    Happy Memorial Day! If you know an American Soldier/Veteran, honor them today!
