The brazilian flag says ordem e progresso/ order and progress, a vain motto like the land of free, or liberte, fraternite egalite or any of these phrases to make young people go to war for rich old people

Pais rico sem pobreza is what it says. Every country has poverty unfortunately just weird for me to have something like this on a flag.

Sorry, you are wrong, there is no such word in our flag, just order and progress

So those in poverty loose the right to a family... talk about kicking you when you're down. A-M-E-R-I-C-A.... fuck yeah! :lol:


You DON"T get it ?

That quote you just made; is the Dumbest thing i ever seen. :lol:

Maybe if they only had (ONE CHILD), instead or 3 or 5 ; they wouldn't "Be" in Poverty ?

And YES, i outright saying that You owe it to society, to NOT make a baby
unless you can afford one. Making a baby is NOT a right ; it's a Privilege !!!

Bille


My bad.... i didn't realise it was that simple :roll:

You know not all of the world is like the US. In some countries young children aren't necasserily a financial burden regardless of whether it contributes to an areas poverty level or not.

ps - "Making a baby is NOT a right ; it's a Privilege !!!" - that would be a cool slogan for your Team America: World Police vehicles.

I'll let you get back to shooting them god damn racoons on the porch. :)

Put it simply like this:
Football = game for the mass
Kitesurf = extreme sport for a few
There is nothing to compare in my view =

@ sijandy

Your trying to make this a USA vs the world thing ,
and i'm not trying to be cynical ; just pointing out a fact :

Poverty stricken arias World-wide , (including the USA)
seem to have an increase in crime rates, along with a higher
incarceration rate and lower education level. The lower education rate in
of itself, seems to correlate to a higher crime rate for any given demographic .
How is that helping society ?

As for Football vs Kitesurf :
There's a Lot more money in soccer, and a Lot of people like that game, but i'd
rather be flying a kite , (in the air like my HG, or from off the water ) !!

Congratulations to Germany for winning the World Cup 2014 in Brazil ! Well played Argentina!

Brazilians: your chance to strike back at the PKRA Germany August 1-10 !

That would be big news in Germany and Brazil...go for it!

Good luck ! :thumb:

What a cross!!! Argentinas formations/ structures were unreal, just needed a little more up forward. A fitting final, no room for error, ref had no say in the result, great game.

Congrats Germany.

Congrats to germany! Awesome game!

But this thread made me wounder.

Many here look at Kiteboarding as an Extreme sport. imho Kiteboarding cannot be classified as an extreme sport at all.. 95% of the worlds kiters cruise back and forth, Crashing in water does not hurt compared to hitting terrafirma. Boosting while kiting, when you know how to is not extreme.

I have have been kiteboarding since 2001 and in that time, this sport has gotten less and less "extreme".. Sure, there are a few that push the boundaries but I still feel that it does not rank into the "extreme" category... Speedriding, Wingsuits, FMX, Racing isle of man, Freediving at a high level etc.. Extreme consequences equal extreme sports.. getting you knee blown out will set you back and sucks but it does not make our sport extreme, just like women handball is not extreme..

Different opinions maybe but hey.. Kitesurfing/Kiteboarding is a feelgood sport in my opinion.. megaloops really is not that "hardcore" either.. spectacular yes.. extreme.. no....


(there are some exeptions, but that does not classify our sport)
