I do MAYBE 15 mins of work in a normal day, and I get paid $30-40/hr 8 hrs a day, 5 days a week.

I'll keep it for now. ;)

Dude, I work half a mile from you, and we get youtube on our computers. They must be stingy over there!!! :P



I'd come over there, but I don't want to have to put on a uniform and cut my hair. :D

It depends on if the proxy is up or not... bored bastards down at the network center!

Yup, not sure which guy shit more, the skydiver or the pilot!



Do you think the pilot even saw the skydiver?

it seems to me that this event occured close to the end of the skydive... depending on how the Chipmunk arrived, you might be unable to see it coming....



True, however, that's why you don't just look straight down to check the spot, you also scan the sky for several miles all around to see if anything is coming in your direction. In the 60 seconds or so of freefall that we have, a small airplane traveling at 120 mph can intersect with us from two miles away.

I agree - you need to check around the plane too, as ground control should be doing to give clear drop. I did that and it didn't stop me nearly hitting a glider at about 5k over Oxfordshire 5 yrs ago. Lots of little fluffy clouds and a nearby gliding club (that we jump in harmony with, they stay below 1k), and I sure as hell didn't see the glider until I nearly hit it. We need to try our best to avoid these things but sometimes shit happens.
