The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Great, now we have a bunch of old men ripping off kids with their skateboards! I can see me hiding in the bushes with trip lines across the road waiting for my prey. How many boards do I need?

Depends on how fast you can make your get away(s).

You buy the kids new boards so they'll give you their old ones!!

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

That looks pretty neat. No two alike.

Did I miss the part where the anti skid stuff was taken off each and every board or did they conveniently leave it out of the video?

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Nope, he used a heat gun (harbor freight I believe) and used a wood dowel to roll the strip off. Colorful, isn't it. Except for relieving the kids of their boards a fun project for turners..

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
