So you've decided to live like Bodhi.
2 May 2006 | by JFHuntSee all my reviews

There are a couple of things you should remember before attempting to become a bank robbing surf god.

First: Odd's are you are no where near as cool as Bodhi and that's a major hill to climb. Here's my advice on that subject. Start smoking, everyone's a little bit cooler if they smoke. Then start drinking. A man will always be judged on how much alcohol he can consume and a woman will always be impressed, whether she likes it or not. You might also want to pick up a copy of Road House.

Second: Change your appearance. Actually you might want to start working on this immediately, as it's probably the most difficult. Grow your hair out, then use "sun in" everyday for 3 weeks. Repeat for goatee. Then go shopping. Hit up the local surf store. There your find all the ponchos and skids you will need. If there's no surf store, find a good will or second-hand shop.

Third: Meet new friends. By now you're strung out and paranoid from being alone all the time. You're going to need people to follow and worship you. Try making pamphlets explaining your cause. If pamphlets don't work, actually try talking to people. Instead of asking for change this time, try discussing sports or politics. And I know what you're thinking, finding friends is hard. Can't find them, buy them.

Finally: Funding. So you think you're ready to surf the big waves. The next step is to find money. Banks have plenty of money. Try asking nicely if they could give you some donations. If that doesn't work, try getting a job. If that doesn't work. Try robbing the bank you first went too. If that doesn't work. Start lifting weights. In jail you're going to need be able to defend yourself. Repeat step 1, watch Road House. Patrick Swayze kills like 7 people in that movie.

You're on your way. Remember your roots. You're freaking Patrick Swayze. He once survived a plane crash. He was flying the plane.
