There a tutorial for how making a hoverboard. How the thing work is quite steamy and the appropriate decoration and pretty much what left to do to make a nifty victorianish thing.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Completely rubbish unless you've got a perfect surface, but entirely too much fun when you've got a proper place to use it Grin

Yeah, I made on of those several years ago. They're really easy to make, and his doesn't work nearly as well as mine did.

Also, you don't need a perfect surface; asphalt's fine. You can't really steer, but riding down a sloped cul-de-sac in one is like the summer equivalent of tobogganing.

Your reality, sir, is lies and balderdash, and I am delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever!

hahaha!  i just watched it, and i loved where at the end he goes down - but with a flair.  haha, so funny.  didn't the mythbusters try something like this?  i know they made hoverboards, but did they make one that floated on water?  whatever, my friends and i are going to make one of these, as it's wicked cool.  i wonder if a smaller, more like a skateboard version would work? 

either way, this is hysterical.  good job, guys.
