    who feels the same way, because of graffiti i know more about trains world wide i know more georgraphy.. the sport is similar to other sports as all human.. so can observe politics such as psychological aspects.. such as why peoplpe want to be good at things (attention part of motive) hobby.. etc..

    graffiti doesnt completely isolate you like i thought it would, it leasds to intrests such as other cities n shit i dindt really know about.. tell me what yoummight have learned from graffiti's helap?

    i've learned a lot more because of it. a lot of useless stuff to tell you the truth. but useless stuff helps in other matters.

    It's amazing how writing letters and words on walls and freights STILL hasn't taught a majority of writers ENGLISH.

    To Me!!,I've been in This Graff Game for Over 20+ Years and I Feel That Graff is More Like Stress Reliever to Me in A Sense Because for A Person Like Myself,It Seems like Whenever I Go and Paint Whether It's Solo or W. The Homies,I Seem to feel so Damn Good After I've Completed a Piece for The Day,Yesterday,I Painted at A LEGAL Spot W. 2 of My Homies Called THEME CITY and It's A Real Cool Spot Outside of New York!!.
    Yes,Graff Does Educate But To Me is Not A Brainwash,Like I Tell Alot of People too That When I Was a Youngster,There are a Whole Lotta Worse Things That I Could've Been getting Myself Into Besides Going Out Tagging or Painting!!.

    it prompted me to learn more about police, and how to be one step ahead before i go out... definitely continuously helps me work on my stealth abilities and acrobatics... other than that, i gotta say.. i'm pretty hypnotized by it... especially if i've been tearin it up... once you get on a roll, you can't... stop... must.... paint..... more....
