Orchard downs is literally the only place in town where you can go sledding lol
That’s what I figured. Good luck to him getting it all the way out there. Maybe if it snows enough he can sled down the steps at Krannert lol
LOL. tell him he should come with me tomorrow!! I’m taking my kiddie pool!!
Where are you guys going? I told him to go to Orchard Downs because that’s the only one I know of but he was like yeah can’t really take a dorm door there. Lol
HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO BE BEST FRIENDS WITH A TEACHER EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE OLDER THAN YOU AND THEY’RE YOUR TEACHER THE STRUGGLE IS REAL
I AM A TEACHER AND THE REVERSE IS ALSO TRUE
My freshman teammate just texted me asking if I knew of any sledding hills within a mile of ISR… because he and his friends are stealing a door from the dorms to sled with. I’m dying
they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it.
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing a one blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all of three Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck
This is one of my favorite moments in “fuck you” history.
