For the uninitiated "Le Parkour" is the French past time of performing an obstacle course over roof tops and such.
I believe the only person who can do it is this guy. Look close.


People who call me 'paranoid' are probably in on the plot.

more specifically its stuff like a tic tac climb.

a tic tac climb is taking two steps up a wall and grabing on to a fairly high ledge.

2.

3.

4.

5.

6.

Fealiks, for the love of God, reduce the size of that signature image! I mean it's LucasForums' fault for ever allowing that to pass through the filters, and I could just disable sig images in my user preferences, but still, as a moderator, nay, as a human being I urge you to reconsider before the mere size of that beast takes over the forum. (And why is Yoda red, anyway)

Great comic though.

The follow up comic.
http://www.penny-arcade.com/view.php...02-05-07&res=l

Penny Arcade is one of the few (possibly the only) webcomic to induce laughing out loud. In the real sense, not the l337 one.

Damn you for linking to Penny Arcade... it made me spend an hour going through the archives and drinking Orangeade.

Isn't it a felony to browse Penny Arcade with an orange tongue? Or is that just in Texas?

Jesus, Oranageade doesn't give you an orange tounge! What the **** have you been drinking!?

The same stuff as Yoda, probably...

And dammit, I want that Gabe shirt so much except it's black and his hair fades into the background so it sucks.

After orangeaid and an hour of Penny Arcade, he really might be.

On a totally unrelated point, I spent the last hour going through the PA archives.

Perhaps Fealiks there are some things better left unsaid and untold, as the people involved should well know.... that includes you Gabez.

Since this thread is already completely derailed, I might as well ask Fender which songs Finntroll played...

My memory is a little hazy, plus I only own the Nattfood and Jaktens Tid albums, but heres a few that sprung up on either or both of the setlists.

TROLLHAMMEREN!
Fiskarens Fiende
Slaget Vid Bokosav
Kitteldags
Fodosagen
Bakom Varje Fura
Jaktens Tid


Those are all the ones I remember, but you must see them McCoy, they are the most fun I have ever had seeing a band live. Wacken was a little violent so I couldnt fully enjoy them, but in Birmingham they were a great laugh!

Maybe its catching.

Incidentally, doesn't le parkour mean "death" in Spanish or something?

Trying to think back to Nighlight Productions and Tierra De Los Meurtos...
