Re: [chuckakers] This is what the sport has come to

In reply to:
If you need a f*cking beep in your ear to help you land your parachute...

We need a GPS to determine our spot.
We need an audible altimeter to tell us when to pull.
We need an AAD to deploy our reserve.
And now we need more ear beeps to fly a landing pattern.

I suppose it was inevitable.

I can see it now:
S&TA: "Why did you turn into that other jumper and almost collide with him?"
Jumper: "Because my ear beep told me it was time to turn final!"

I eagerly await the invention of the electronic parachute packing machine.

In a few more decades we'll be like that first monkey shot up into space on a rocket, strapped down and helpless, while automated gizmos took care of everything. Yeah, that'll be fun.
