answer my newbie questions.. and if I ever see you, I'll buy you a beer Can't Post

if you adjust your container to be too loose, can that cause lower back pains upon deployment? or did I have a hard opening? As much as I try to and remember what the hell actually happened, I can't.

I had just readjusted my leg straps because my right leg got numb on my AFF5 canopy portion... on my AFF6 after all the adjustments, I jumped, upon deployment I felt my back just curving inwards like a mofo, and I landed with a sore back =/ . At least I passed my AFF's, but I'd like to know if I made a mistake before deployment, maybe too much arching? (if there is such a thing).

Electronic alti or analog?

When should one start looking for a rig? 30? 40? 50 jumps? B-license?

I weight 195 lbs, 6 ft tall. I'm thinking of sticking to 230 for rentals and my first rig, however some people, including instructors, recommended I buy 210 or 190. I'm a little confused because that's slightly below the 1:1 people recommend here... does that rule matter less the heavier you get or something?

Should I get a brand new container? just so that it fits me perfectly?

Hot summer southern california weather is coming up... should I even bother getting a jumpsuit?

If I hold my flare too long, (edit: at high altitudes) the canopy collapses, what are the odds that it doesn't recover from the collapse? are there any videos of that happening?

what kind of beer do you like?
