>>949477 He didn't pass. He killed himself. That's it. I'm sorry I've legit been miserable the past 20 years happiness is next to impossible. I'd think getting some recognition apron the world, having a hobby, being one of the best. I have no one. Just this pad. All I am is sad No love No gf, did get laid but other than that girl who I fucked three times four years ago that's my interaction with girls. I'm broke I never achieved any of my dreams, I don't have an actual family, And you want me to feel sorry for this asshole. Go fuck yourself. I don't even feel bad for robin Williams, robin Williams was my idol, I felt mad at him for what he did, because if a man who made so many people laugh would end up killing himself then when I eventually run out of TV shows towatch I'll know my suicide will be just. No Dave Mirra does not deserve my sympathy more rich famous people should follow his and Williams example.
>>949723 I'm not even that guy. For all you know this nigga was gangraped. He could have a microdick. HOW DARE anyone on the Internet. Say that they had a worse life than Dave fucking Mirra. Do you realize how much of inconsiderate douchebag you are? I mean granted I don't know Dave Mirra he doesn't know him, but it's possible that he has had it much worse than someone who has a family, friends, fame, a video game series, sponsors, kids, accolades, acclaim, being one of the best in the world, in fact I'd say it's more than possible it's say 95 percent of U.S. Have had it harder emotionally, physically, mentally and financially harder than he has. General rule of thumb is that at least a third of the world views suicide for the weak. Seriously don't be a twat, it sucks your icon gave up on living a life most would consider worth living, but don't chastise anyone on here that thinks their life is/was worse than Mirras.
I only skate because when i was a little kid i wanted to BMX so bad. But i could never actually lift the bike. I'm too weak. Me and my friends would go to the library and check out all the BMX magazines (this was pre internet) and just sit there and be stunned that they could get such heavy fucking bikes into the air like that
I used to play his game on DC literally all the time. It was enjoyable to just ride around in the game and play, its impressive that his game was one of the only "extreme sport" games to be genuinely good (next to THPS)
Even though i still probably couldn't do a single BMX trick i have alot of respect for them. They go faster & cant just kick the bike away like you can a board. Watching Dave Mirra was just like some next level shit. As a skater i loved the way he would hit every obstacle on the course and actually do lines, rather than the other dudes who seemed to pedal across the whole course to try one big trick on whatever they were good at.
RIP Dave I read this while I was on break at work and it made me very sad. I got the honor to meet him once at X Games and he was the coolest guy ever unlike that faggot Ryan Nyquest who didnt even bother to show up at the booth signing autographs. My prayer to his family friends and kids.
>>949709 After my dad died when I was eight My mom dated some alcoholic biker asshole that moved us to the middle of no where in this shitty cabin that he would party with his biker buddies and didn't bother to fix it up for winter. I had to crawl under that shit to fill a kerosene heater(dangerous and stupid) so that my mom and little sister would be warm. He once elbowed my mom in the face so hard it broke her nose and blood was everywhere. I grabbed a steak knife and stood my 8 year old frame in between them and yelled to never hit her again. I dunno if it was respect or laziness, but he walked away and passed out. Life shits on us all faggot, but compassion is what makes us human. Quit wallowing in a pool of self pity and realize that everyone can have it hard from all walks of life.
>>949403 Here's why it's hard for me to feel bad for him. I don't have fame, fortune, kids, or a woman to call my wife. My support group is not as wide spread as his, and I don't have people to go to when life gets rough for me. I literally have my mom, and one friend I can talk to. This guy had so much support, and reasons to stay alive and try to keep it together, but he didn't. Then people will say, but he had depression. You don't know what depression is because you're a faggot. Or something unintelligent to that degree.
Guess what? I have depression too, and other health problems that I've kept hidden from my family for my entire adult life. I'm 30 now, so it's not like I don't know how the world truly works. I've got medical bills coming out the ass, but I still get up everyday and try to make things better. I injured my sciatic nerve wrestling in school, and now every day is a question of how to cope with the pain and not "if" the pain will be bad today.
You kids need to realize that you can't make excuses for athletes, celebrities, and all of these other public figures just because you like who they are. I liked Dave Mirra, but here's a fact that you have to accept. Life isn't fair, but it sure was a lot more fair for him than many people I know.
We feel sorry for the loss of Dave Mirra as an idol, one of the best. Not because "muuh suicide"
He was awesome, and i'm sad bc we lost his legacy on the BMX, but suicide is a choice. You don't need to feel sorry for him or judge him. It's his choice, fuck this, maybe someday it will be you, maybe someday it will be me.
But many of you make your own life worse without reason. Let's take some examples.
Like the anon, i've injured my sciatic nerve beyond repair due to Bad Posture as an child and a edgy teenager. years of physiotherapy couldn't help me. And i've stayed in my home only going to work during 2 whole years.
After a time, i've gone back to skate and BMX. The pain is like going to hell everyday, but fuck it, i'm glad i can still go to the streets and shred the fuck out of them. I'm glad i can still walk. Even if everyday is a fight to work, do sports or even to use the bathroom. The pain will not go away, what can i do? Cry like the loser i am? No.
There's no need to feel sorry for the ones who cant walk, or judge the ones who have perfect health. I just fucking do my game, and it's not that hard.
The ones who think like "Fuck it all" will be called edgy teenagers, but it's the truth. Just move on. Keep running even if you don't have one leg. Keep dreaming even if you're an autistic brain-damaged retard.
"You don't need a reason to live, just fucking do it, there's nothing better to do". And stop crying because "omg my life is so bad". That's retarded, son.
>>950467 just the first thing that popped to my head when I learned. You know about Sublime's singer right?
>everyone does a little healing today
it's weird, because I laid down to take a nap a few hours back and I got all those thoughts deluging me. I 'd say, no, depression is not a "part of the machine breaking down". This is mechanising the human body and experience and should be viewed as hostile by anyone who attempts it, be they pharma-hustlers or just your weird aunt. It's hostile. And I 'll remind everyone that Obama said that if space was last generation's goal, our generation's goal should be the brain. Just reminding. I don't know if he has scientific organisations, academia and think tanks behind it, like Kennedy had NASA, and I am aware at first this sounds very paranoid and conspiratory but he declared it publicly. Maybe Mirra was a victim of the CIA, who knows???
>>950584 oh and I forgot the most important thing: "depression" is a made-up mambo jumbo word. You grow up, you realise you don't live in a fairy land and your dreams as a child are on shaky grounds and ACTUALLY have a chance of not being accomplished, including anything about life you knew. It's a sign of intelligence to have uncertainty about life. One has to go through it to mature spiritually. Fuck big pharma, trust that there is good in life and realise there is bad too.
>>949861 I've used to ride a bike like 3-4 times in my life during my 0-15 age.
That means i didn't even fucking knew how to stand in a bike by the age of 16 when i've started to bmx.
My friends were doing 180 on the fucking half pipes while making full lines, while i couldn't even lift my front wheel without falling.
My cousin and a fat kid (10) made fun of me because i couldn't even stand on the bike and looked like a idiot trying to.
Then i've started to spend every day in my bike, even for just riding. Guess what? My idiot friends stopped to bmx and started to just go to trails (With fucking BMX street bikes. Old ones.).
4 months later, i was doing the 180, could bunnyhop a fucking concrete box, double peg grind, fakie, and was trying to learn the 360. Not much, but considering i didn't even knew how to stand in the bike before, that's something for me.
The fat kid broke his bike and said "nah ill stop this shit" and my cousin stayed dreaming. I've tried to make him go back but he's too autistic and weak.
However i've helped a 9 year old friend. He wanted to learn the BMX so we kind of started together. At 10 he could already bunnyhop and do some other things.
It's not strenght. It's not all about strength, you need technique and training. Even if you're a skinnyfat 75kg weak shit like i was.
Today i do bmx and started to skate (i'm 22 now), me and the little one (he's 15 now) found some friends and try to spend many time we can on the park (besides my university and his school).
Today, there's alot of tutorials on youtube explaining every single detail, it's not hard anymore, it's not a secret you have to learn from people doing it in the street. All hail the great information.
If anyone else wondering if you're too weak/your bike is too heavy. JUST DO IT.
