- what are the chances of a girl like me getting on the PD Factory Team?
- Well, Mike, it's pretty difficult to say..
- Hit me with it! What are my chances?
- Not good.
- You mean, not good like one out of a hundred?
- I'd say more like one out of a million.
- ... So you're telling me there's a chance!

If by that you mean a long chest strap, then yes, I think i do. I have the longest chest strap in the world! although some jealous haters may dispute that.

At least if there was an emergency & your chest strap broke you could use some of Frost's chest strap to save the day. You wouldn't even have to be on the same load!

Wink

PD Factory team, etc. Yay, etc.

Me 2. It's actually a hair too long (I think) - definitely a weird feeling laying flat during a swoop - but it's fun!

Isn't there some kind of pill I can take to naturally enhance my chest strap?

yes, indeed. But that was in the past. This year, with my winnings from the last FL CPA meet at the Farm, i was able to undergo a mildly painful operation where my oversized human testicles were replaced with simple, yet functional fist size brass balls.

For those who've never been to FL CPA - fifth place winnings were 1500 bucks this season, up $500 from the year before, when i only got $1000 for the third place. Also, FL CPA pays down to 10th place who basically gets his money back and 11th-15th places usually get back rubs with happy endings - compliments of Ian Drennan.

Yes. The rejection stung so bad...

Seeing my dreams and hopes flushed down the toilet was so painful, i got wasted and didnt sober up til just yesterday. When i woke up i saw that my eye brows were gone and my had was shaved. But they left a nice mohawk to preserve business-like appearance for when i go back to the office. Thanks guys, that was very thoughtfull of you!

I dont recall much of the last week, but i was told that i sold my JVX for less then $500 (true market value, i guess) to a post AFF student, saying that the canopy was perfect for him and that i dont need it anymore. I would't be surprised if i cried...

Embarrassing, but it was a good reality check... I guess it is time to face it i am not good enough and go visit a tattoo removal specialist. "Property of PD Factory Team" logo is getting burned off my ass. And this time - forever, I promise. Not like the last three times.

Highly unlikely man. I already cut the chest strap down to normal size... i dont deserve to have the longest one in the world. Also pulled out my old Mirage to accommodate my new canopy which will be in the 150 sq. foot range. It's done. I'm retired.
