Parkour Fail

Am I imagining it, or are inept Parkour practioners responsible for 95% of the "oh man, that had to have hurt" videos circulating on the web these days?

Seriously people... aside from seriously grossing me out, most of you are gonna end up selecting yourselves right out of the gene pool of you don't stop doing that!

[Don't know what I'm talking about? Go to YouTube and search for 'parkour fail'. If you don't end up whimpering in the fetal position after watching a few of these idiots, you are made of stronger stuff than I am.]


Parkour (sometimes abbreviated PK) is a method of movement focused on moving around obstacles with speed and efficiency. Originally developed in France, the main purpose of the discipline is to teach participants how to move through their environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing and jumping. Traceurs (parkour practitioners) train to be able to identify and utilize alternate or the more efficient paths. Parkour can be practiced anywhere, but areas dense with obstacles offer many different training opportunities.

Some of them probably should be eliminated from the gene pool. There are moments where I am glad that cheap video cameras didn't exist when I was a kid- some things are better left as memory.

Thank you for introducing me to that.
I feel enriched and blessed.
Nearly choked on my lunch watching some of those.
There's fragments of salmon, rice, and chili sauce on my keyboard now, and the guy who sits across from me mentioned the word 'epilepsy'.
Again, thank you.

Someone should tell those people that "The Matrix" is FICTION.

The only time I ever heard of parkour was on an episode of The Office - hilarious!
