Far more people are mid-west transplants or from overseas...

I'll be willing to grandfather in anyone that has either experienced a riot, an earthquake 6.0 or greater in magnitude, or been trapped in a "lockdown" during an active shooter situation.

My passport says "california" for my place of birth Cool

Surrender your passport NOW you imposter! Cool

That near grab of the cutaway handle didn't really look unintentional either....nor safe for that matter! But what do I know...and I'm only on page 1 so someone probably already beat me.

sass and myself are "Cali" originals...maybe hookitt too. And no one from California refers to anything as "Cali". It is NorCal, SoCal (or even LoCal for San Diego area).

I bet he could answer this differently:

What has been your worst skydiving moment?
I had a drogue-reserve entanglement that kept the reserve slider stuck all the way up after a container lock on a tandem. I spent terrifying time trying to bring the knot down the reserve lines in order to get the slider down. At the time, I had fewer than 100 tandem jumps and did not understand how it would be possible to container lock a Sigma tandem rig. My ignorance put me and my passenger in a potentially fatal situation. Thankfully, we both walked away with only bumps and bruises.

I'm from Montana but was born in a different State.

Been here 25 years so I guess I'm local now. I'm calling it Cali from now on. Just like the exploding fist bump, I'll help keep it popular.

Edit: Look on a map, really we are more MidCal than NorCal

Haven't really heard much precedence of "MidCal", but not opposed. I just can't accept Cali, but will tolerate it in small doses.

What?! I mean really, what?

"His record", "stealing records", where do you get off?!

You're gonna justify that breach of safety and trust, over an ego driven dick move?

Don't ever get on an airplane with me.

I think travelling freeflyers from California going to big-ways should now get t-shirts that say "Cali-prick" on the front. We need to know who you are. Laugh

Edit: Or even better, the organizers of the new Texas state record should get everyone on the new record a Cali-pricks shirt.

I am ashamed to say that Simon "dick head" Bones worked at Skydive Suffolk a while back if he shows his face around here not Only will he not be welcome I hope I can reframe from slapping his punk ass..You knew better you are better was it REALLY worth it ? Remember me telling you more than once " Your only as good as your last jump"? Maybe you can dig your way out of this one day Simon I don't know. I have been jumping for 32 years and what you did I must admit is a first for me..Trust is hard to earn and damn easy to lose..you are truly a selfish person Frown

I was born and raised in California, and this "Cali" thing is rather humorous. No one from California ever called the CHP Chips, either. Crazy Sheesh.

Posers! Tongue

Everyone, please remember that Simon is a member of these forums. The no PA rule still applies in this situation. Don't get yourself banned over this.

I think it's worth noting that the blood-lust in this matter is unbecoming. Everyone screws up. What he did was wrong, on many levels, but since he isn't here defending his actions, seems like he's not proud of it. He's got a long road ahead of him to repair the damage from this, and everyone deserves the chance to redeem themselves.

This isn't a screw-up!
This was an intentional fuck you and intentionally put others at risk on the jump.
People typically spend a ton of cash on record attempt trips.
People would be expected to be pissed the hell off after someone pulled a punk move like this.
I was happy to see they stuck him with the tab for the load too.

His facebook comments clearly show he made a conscious decision to do this. He admitted what he intentionally did. He didn't "screw-up".
