@getpittedbruh Are you seriously comparing riding a Onewheel down a hill to drunk driving?! You lost me there my dude.
If that's the point you think I was making there, then I'm afraid you simply missed the point. I'll generalize the claim for you.
An action that is risky need not result in a negative consequence in every instance, and yet, it still ought to be avoided. Drunk driving is risky, but people do it and live. The fact that people do it and live isn't a reason to think it's ok to do or that it wasn't wrong to do it.
Likewise, bombing a hill on a onewheel, blowing through the board's safety features, and wearing no protective gear all whilst doing this on a public road is risky, but people do it and live (you've provided video evidence of that). The fact that people bomb hills on onewheels, blow through the board's safety features, and wear no protective gear and do all that on public roads and live isn't a reason to think it's ok to do or that it wasn't wrong to do it.
Plus Catalina Island has almost no cars. Worst case scenario, she dents someone's bumper and they are a few minutes late to wherever they are going. Chill out and go for a float man.
That's pretty far from the worst case scenario. The worst case scenario is something like the board shuts down, she veers into an oncoming car, they don't have time to react because they're not expecting somebody crossing into their lane on a skateboardish thing, and they run over her with a very heavy automobile. That's a potential traumatic, legal, insurance, health problem for her and the driver. Failing to consider that is a moral failure to consider the social context and the plausibilities.
Again, it didn't happen, which is super cool. She's amazing. You're amazing. Stripped of all the ethical issues, what's in that video is an incredible display of talent. I wish I was as good as you guys. But I don't wish to emulate that type of recklessness because I don't think it adequately takes into consideration the context and environment, which includes other people. I don't believe this instance defines your characters. I'm sure you're wonderful people. But in this instance you did something you shouldn't have done. I do things I shouldn't do sometimes, and I'm happy to be given argument for why I ought not to have done them.
I'm both a fast typist and (as you can see) pretty verbose, so it probably seems like this is something occupying a lot of my time, but it isn't. We all make mistakes. I think you guys made one. I'm glad it worked out. I'm just explaining my reasoning here.
For all I know, no laws were broken, and even if laws were broken, I'm not the onewheel police (despite the impression my posts might give you). I'm just trying to make a cogent argument for why what that video depicts something that 1) you probably shouldn't have done, and 2) something people generally shouldn't do, regardless of their ability, professional or otherwise.
