Xtreme Sports


In middle school/junior high school, I got into skateboarding due to the influence of my peers growing-up. I would buy skateboard magazines (featuring Tony Hawk) and would hang these cool posters from them all over my room. I never owned a skateboard, but I wanted to be a "skateboarder". I would try my friends' skateboard, but couldn't get the hang of it.

During the winter time, snowboarding became the "thang". I tried snowboarding in the backyard of the townhouses we lived it, but couldn't stay up!

I've learned that I probably can't do these xtreme sports because of another "calling" in my life. However, I can still enjoy watching it!

"Man dies after 50 hours of computer games -msnbc (Aug 10th 2005)

South Korean left seat in Internet cafe only to use toilet, take brief naps Updated: 6:43 p.m. ET Aug. 9, 2005 SEOUL, South Korea - A South Korean man who played computer games for 50 hours almost non-stop died of heart failure minutes after finishing his mammoth session in an Internet cafe, authorities said on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old man, identified only by his family name Lee, had been playing online battle simulation games at the cybercafe in the southeastern city of Taegu, police said.

Lee had planted himself in front of a computer monitor to play online games on Aug. 3. He only left the spot over the next three days to go to the toilet and take brief naps on a makeshift bed, they said.
