I know, right? I had a rather nasty comment back and then forwarded links to videos which proved it otherwise. I think that office episode actually created that view of parkour

The discussion in general is far more balanced than a lot of other discussions elsewhere. The level of understanding isn't high, but then the level of understanding within the Parkour community itself isn't high either, so fair play to many of them there for keeping an open mind.
