    "I hope this finds you well" - really??

    I now hate the word "so". Like the song in Disney's ride, "It's a Small Small world". As long as you never paid any attention to it to start with, it doesn't bother you. Now that it's in my head, I hear it used all the time. "So" As the first word in a reply NOW drives me nuts. so,so,so,so ... so there! AUHGGGGGGGGG!

    You could try a separate thread maybe. Until this same category, History etc? Probably reach a lot more people with your question than the Cooper thread? Side Note: We're still running the '100 Hijackers/100 Days' series over at Quora, from the Brendan Koerner entries. (Yes, we asked permission.) Did you know that someone tried to copycat Cooper about six or seven months later out of the SeaTac Airport? Ha...neither did I. His demands were a bit more reasonable. He only wanted $50,000 and ONE parachute. A complete wacko, he was later committed to a mental institution. On a REALLY weird note...the first two initials in his name are D and B, and his last name starts with a C, as in Carre. (*insert Twilight Zone theme song here*) I try not to look at the whole series at once. When I get to a hijacker who has later published a book...I've been trying to find and order that book. So far, I have five books that until I started reading Koerner's series...I had never heard of either the book or the hijacker. 'Hijack' by Anthony Bryant has been the best book so far. He's the guy who thought life in Cuba would be great, and said he supported Castro. But he robbed the passengers on the way to Cuba...and one of them was an undercover agent for the Cuban government who had been working in the US. When they landed in Havana, Bryant was shipped off to the cane fields for almost a dozen years before being released. His story is pretty grim.

    AAD fires

    the ones I'm discussing weren't premature openings, the AAD functioned as programmed the point is that these weren't saves, everything would have been fine without the AAD firing, the manufacturer has no way to know if an order for a cutter involved a save because they don't ask for details

    I called they don’t and I figured as much. My hope is that one of the old timers has them, I’m asking around the community.

    How cold it'll be?

    Wearing surgical type gloves under thin leather gloves works great. My advice is to put on the surgical gloves on the way to altitude to reduce the likelihood of your hands getting sweaty. That means just wear the leather gloves at first, then add the surgical gloves on the way up. Work it out with your instructors, they won’t like the distraction, so clear it with them first so nobody is surprised.

    Ares II or Viso II+

    Does the Ares, like the Viso, show the “tens” of feet digit in free fall (a useless, distracting blur in freefall)? Am I the only one to think it is amazing they continue to show that digit? I think the readability of the L&B products is much worse than the Alti-2 products because the numbers are displayed on a seven segment display type arrangement - straight line segments to display the number. The Alti-2 display (even way back to the Neptune 2) does not have this restriction, allowing a much more quickly readable display. I think the “rounded” font, with higher aspect ratio of each character, and the narrower stroke makes for a huge distinction between the brands.

  18. You're having a bout of Nihilism and it's no big deal, something that passes and comes and goes and comes back again and goes again. It's part of passing through the years and trying to figure out why the fuck you're busting your ass just to uphold the premise of a normal life in which you're supposed to make money and do this and do that and then blink out of existence at a higher probability as a function of your age. Hobbies, spontaneity and internet porn help.

  20. You can't change what's happening, you can change how you think about it. Trite but true. Step back and think what you absolutely must do. Then think about what you enjoy (or have enjoyed) doing. Draw up a program that gives time for both. Follow the program and concentrate on the bit you're doing at the time. Use a timer and try not to be diverted till it rings. Then move to the next item on the program - it's valid to have 'go for a coffee / beer' as a program item. Aim is to focus on what you're doing, not on how you compare to others, or what others think. Won't work all the time but will create some impetus in life which will increase over time. Nearly everyone copes to a greater or lesser extent, you're very unlikely to be the exception. Also useful to access counselling services - just vocalising what you feel to another person often helps improve the perspective. (Speaking as someone battling a trauma-induced autoimmune disease which totally sucks out my energy and concentration, but determined that at some point I'm going to get back to real life. The above are the techniques I use to cope at the most basic level and to try and keep moving back to normality.)
