Too Much Megalomania In Skateboarding These Days

I learned a new word today: megalomania. Maybe you can figure out what it means without looking it up. First read these quotes from an email discussion I've had recently with someone trying to get a spot in Damn Am:

(1) I know I could hold my own against any AM. It's cool if you don't think so, I won't argue with you bro. (2) i'm a great guy with a good head on my shoulders, I have full confidence i'll make it in skating (3)a lot of people seem to like my skating. Otherwise, I wouldn't be getting paychecks (4)I'm a great business guy at only 23 and really down to earth (5)I did enter MASA,with billy marks, jeremy rogers, lutzka,etc,etc and got top 40's and there were over sixty riders.

Sounds amazing, huh? Now check out 30 seconds of his footage. Let me know if you think I should give him a spot.
