*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Default I saw a bumper sticker today...

I saw a bumper sticker today on my way to skate:



Made me chuckle and wonder if the meaning of life could be so simple!

Turns out there are some interesting thoughts about this conundrum out in Internet land:

"The origins of the song, though, go back even further. Some argue that "The Hokey Pokey" (or "Cokey") is a corruption of "hocus pocus," the familiar term used by magicians.

"Hocus pocus" derives, in turn, from a Latin line in the Catholic Mass, "Hoc corpus meum" ("This is my body"), indicating the transformation of the communion "bread" into the body of Jesus Christ.""
- The Ambiguous Origins of the Hokey Pokey

So... Maybe it is what it's all about!


N.B. I found the above image on the Internet. Since i was going 65 at the time getting a pix wasn't a good idea or have have sufficient image quality and could have ended badly.

Default makes me wonder that

what if everything we strive for is just as pointless as the hokey pokey.
then that closes up the importance gap and then its quite possible the hokey pokey is whats its all about.
just having fun.no status fun.

We're here because of the hokey pokey, if we are here in 500 years it'll be because of the hokey pokey, even if it's clinical, the egg and sperm are hokey pokey.(I imagine we'll beextinct due to poisened water and air but if we manage to not blow ourselves up and stop destroying the planet....)

Yea, it's all about the hokey pokey.
