Parkour on concrete

As a relative novice at parkour, one of the initial fears you have to overcome is your fear of concrete. To advance, you must become comfortable rolling on it.

Then, once you are able to roll on concrete, your fear of concrete disappears almost completely—no longer would tripping on an uneven sidewalk be scary: you’d just fall and roll. Instead of fear, the traceur maintains a healthy respect for his environment, as well as an increased degree of mastery over it.

Once rolling on concrete is normal to you, it’s funny to think about the reactions of normal people who observe someone rolling on concrete, ranging from: “that’s sick!” to “those kids are going to break their necks.”

Maybe they will, but they have a much better chance at saving their necks while walking on New York City black ice than the average person.

Sounds like a concrete benefit to me.

Surgence

I expect to see a surge in Disney Infinity game titles post Star Wars: Episode VII. Basically, that means that Disney can make a TON of money playing out the Star Wars vs. Marvel (or whatever other universes they own) alternate realities—without it being canon for either universe, while still letting fans see what it would be like. As in Batman vs. Darth Vader or The Hulk vs. Yoda.

Surprised

Why the front door haven’t gyms figured out the “pay as you go” model. Carriers figured it out and made a huge business. And today, people use gyms less frequently than phones, but they would have a much bigger client list to cross sell to. I’d be one of those “pay as you go” folks. Fo’ sho.

Eschew consumerism.

@timkellernyc great way to exceed 140 characters when you need to is to link your Twitter to Tumblr, like I’ve done here. Then you just email your Tumblr email address and it pushes to Twitter. Pro tip: ignore the subject line.

Happiness is contagious, but did you think it made people more entrepreneurial? Apparently, it does! Get the scoop here:

Mini-Sermon for a Sunday

Jesus is baller.

Matthew 26:53 ESV:
“Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels?”

That’s like 60,000 angels.

For context, here’s what 1 angel can do:

and what 4 angels can do: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation%207:1&version=ESV

Don’t mess. Instead, repent and receive the mercy He has bought (with His life) for all who would call Him Lord and Savior!
