I thought it was funny.

Granted I'm not sure this is the appropriate forum for that post (general/bonfire is better suited), but I'll let it stand for now.

It was funny and this forum needs some more humor in it. Although it is a dying meme, played well out on most topics.

I did LOL at the bit where Hitler has his fists up and the subtitles are about him risering out of swoops. That was well designed.

Nice one thats pretty funny. Reminds me of e few people i know. I mean the 20 jump wannabee swoopers, not the anti semitic mass murderers.

Thats a pretty good example of the downfall that has become our sport. I was recently at a DZ "dont ask which one" with a new canopy. I couldn't get coaching becuase of my wing loading and jump numbers. I was then told I couldn't jump my canopy for the same reason. I was told because something could happen. Well no shit this is skydiving and something could always happen. At what point in someones life do they become so great, that they trully believe they have a responsibility to make decisions on what is safe or unsafe for someone else. Why don't we all just quit skydiving because that would be safer.
First, I came to that DZ eager to learn more about flying that canopy. So that I could be safer under it.
Second, Not one person actually looked at my logbook to see what my canopy progression was.
Third, I was planning on just doing hop and pops so the danger to other jumpers line is B/S.
Forth I would have absolutely no problem if they had let me do a jump, and if they saw anything dangerous grounded me.
Fifth the whole jump number system has got to go. is is a unfair assesment of any jumper.

I'm not trying to say that i'm some bad ass swooper or even a good canopy pilot for that matter. But I am confident that I can fly the canopy I have with out killing myself or others.

Oh and by the way, the overwhelming majorty of fatal and serious injury canopy related accidents have come from high jump number pilots.

"I'm a pilot and a wing is a wing..."

That was said about two weeks before a friend of mine turned it into the ground on a Vengence 120. He had about 300-400 jumps at the time. He lived because it had been raining that week, but he barely lived. It was a nice divot in the ground where he first hit, but then he didn't land again for another 50ft or so.

He had a few thousand hours behind the yoke at the time.

I wondered if there was a "Hitler is upset that it's too cloudy/windy to jump" so I did a search and found this. It made my day Laugh even though I have no swooping ambitions.
