    Help Me; I Need A Clear Pseudonym? Hello everyone,

    so I’d like to ask you about some ideas about thinking of a new pseudonym for my YT channel.
    Of course…
    My real name is Nina, and I’m looking foward to use the name as normally, but only other surname. Of course it doesn’t matter if I’m going to hide my real name and use a pseudonym instead.

    I really like Lana Del Rey’s, Sarah Sorceress, Elena Skellington, Verena Schizophrenia, etc.

    I somehow fell in love with the name Lana Del Rey, and looked foward to use it as Nina Del Rey. But then somehow I was thinking about it as a bad idea to do, ’cause it looks more like copied and so. So I just got here to observe your fellow overpowered minds, since my mind is a bit ‘overheated’. 🙁 Also got the idea of Nina Jean Lane,…

    I’d like to watch how much of you can think of great names, of course I’m also thinking with you. 🙂

    Thanks a lot!

    Nina

    What Is All This Hate Towards Kastle? I’ve seen a lot of people (who have never even tried them I might add) around the web hating on Kastle skis because they’re “overpriced” and a number of other things. They were saying that people who buy them are gapers and sheep. Well, I just demoed some LX82s the other day and found them to be wonderful. I’m 17, and I’m tiny. I weigh around 100lbs and I’m very short. They had put me on some Volkls that were just too heavy and stiff before that. Yes, I like a lighter weight ski because of my size.. so these suited me very well. The switch edges quickly and smoothly and handle very well at both high and slow speeds. They floated right over the choppy snow and I had no problem with the crud and crust on them. Additionally, I really like the simple design of it.. nothing pink or rainbow and it doesn’t have flowers on it. All the women’s Volkls did! I’m honestly considering shelling out $1000 for a pair of these because I have the money saved up (I was going to spend it on something less reasonable in the first place) and I need new skis. I am by no means rich and by no means a gaper. I really like the handling and they’re just really fun to ski on. Why do people get so infuriated when OTHER people spend a lot of money on ski gear? They get upset over jackets, skis, goggles, everything. It’s the person’s choice to spend that kind of money and they probably had a reason other than the fact that they want that brand name.

    For someone like me it’s hard to find the right ski. Sure there are all these huge guys who want some sort of heavy tank skis but I just can’t do that. I’m wondering if I’m going to get a lot of shit for getting these skis that I REALLY like.

    • Curator says:

      If they’re working for you and you have the money why are you so concerned with what anonymous people on the internet have to say? If you’re 17 the people who’s opinion you should be most concerned with is your parents. Do they approve of you getting these skis?

      My concern as a long term skier, from your other posts, is that you don’t neglect getting your skis waxed and tuned every so often, especially here in the east. Tuned meaning edge sharpened, bases repaired, stone grind, wax– and binding release checked at least once a season for your safety, waxed every 5 to 10 days of skiing, and if you ski ice you really need to keep those edges sharp. The skis will not be performing their best if they are not maintained. Might as well then save your $1200 for college or a car. Ask your ski instructor about ski maintenance.

      FYI- 4-time X-Games gold medal winner and Canadian freestyler Sarah Burke skied Roxy skis, they were made by the Dynastar factory in Chamonix, France (Chamonix like in the French Alps), so Roxy skis are not junk. Any ski that’s not properly maintained, whether it costs $200 or $1200 will ski like junk. I have 8 year old Dynastar skis that ski beautifully, I keep them waxed and tuned and I still use them. They are my go-to skis in difficult conditions.

    Hasn’t Snowboarding Become Too Dangerous For The Winter Olympic Games? Obviously my first question hit a lot of nerves, so I’ll have to ask it again.

    Isn’t it irresponsible to promote athletes competing in such dangerous sports like snowboarding? It used to be more reasonable but now the half pipe walls can reach up to 30 feet high which means a 50 foot fall to flat bottom if a snowboarder hits the lip at the wrong angle or with the wrong timing. This is why helmets no longer protect those competing in the half pipe and is why Kevin Pearce can never snowboard again and Sarah Burke was killed.

    Also jumps have become unbelievably huge with 100 foot flats to traverse to the landing and massive 40 foot high hip jumps.

    Isn’t including snowboarding in the Wnter Olympicw the equivalent of including motocross or drag racing in the Summer Olympics?

    • Curator says:

      Snowboarding is an extreme sport, it is for brave people who is not scared of steep hills,
      you know the extreme sports, that you mean, is that people could get wounds, cause of the strong fall, but some could like it, it could be for fun, for spending your time actively,
      yeah, it could be dangerous for Olympic games for some people, but what can you do about it, would you direct the another Game for more stronger and brave people, and there you would include those extreme sports/

    Hi I Need Help With Names For My Story Please!? Well firstly I need a name for my main character. She is 16 and smart. She isn’t a nerd or super popular, just normal. Her best friends are called Reagan and Kathryn.
    She can see these things that suck the souls out of people (I also need a name for these things please). She is brave and honest. She is nice and kind but also she gives these soul suckers what they deserve and doesn’t feel bad about it.
    She is about 5 foot 9 (so tall)
    She will either have brown or ginger hair as Reagan has black hair and Kathryn blonde.
    She has no brothers or sisters but her mom is called Sarah.
    So yeah I want a name for my character, first and last, middle if you want. And also a name for these soul sucking creatures. Oh and two boy names, one for a good guy and one for a badass 🙂
    Thanks
