    Hold on. You say that like it's a bad thing. :)

    In 2015 I was giving a talk at a battery conference and I tripped on my way to the stage. I was concentrating on getting my microphone on and not looking where I was going. I guess my company was participating in "elder abuse" by paying me to talk at those conferences! I am clearly senile and demented; they better unpublish all the patents I got from 2015 to today.

    Aw, jeez, all sorts of grab a beer after the last load, or some landing shenanigans contest, are critical parts of the sport. In a way they signal an end to the repressive and constant focus on sanity and safety and the beginning of the party. That we can never lose.

    What 'infirmities'? Please be specific. He tripped over a sandbag that was in a bad spot on the floor. He has a stutter. Foolish and ignorant people ridicule that sort of thing and claim its a 'sign of dementia'. If anyone actually pays attention to the things he says and does, it's pretty clear he's in full control of 'his faculties'. Did you see the part of the State of the Union address where he sparred with the Rs about their intent to destroy Social Security? I can't find it with a quick search, but I came across a video recently of Biden discussing his stutter, how it's affected him and what he's done to overcome it (and the stigma). Again, if you think he is suffering from dementia, you are fooling yourself.

    https://youtu.be/0jLfb76FzkQ For the last year or two I've only been making a low number of jumps. Just got recurrent Friday. I've watched many packing videos over the years, this one I would say stands out as one of the best for NEW and old jumpers. IMHO

    Well, straight high school girls are contemplating suicide because there are trans people in their locker rooms. Nikki Haley said so, so it must be true. She was only called out for a handful of lies, surely this wasn't one of them.

    So vote for the guy who was President during the worst recession since the Great Depression? Or vote for the guy who led you out of that recession?

    Based on your last year or two of posting here I simply do not believe that for one second. You are mad at Target for something they didn't do, just because you heard it from somebody else. You would totally get swept up in fighting for Woolworth's right to prohibit black people from eating at the lunch counter. There is absolutely no way you would stick your neck out for the rights of a minority. Just like 15 to 20 years from now you will be telling your grandchildren how you always fought for the rights of the LGBTQ population.

    Who here hasn't been tempted or had that thought when you see one of the ramped trucks though???

    Putin sent an urgent message to Wagner's Prigozhin. "The Ukrainians have started their offensive, how far have they penetrated?" Prigozhin replied "They are already deep in our rear"

    I’m really sorry to hear about your loss, Cory; that’s so tough, and changes your life into a new, and not always welcome, one. Metallica somehow never did it for me; it’s like a Rothko or Pollock painting. I can tell the talent, I know it’s all deliberate and people find it meaningful and beautiful, but it just doesn’t speak to me somehow. But, old and corny as it is, this song (pre-videos) does always send me: Wendy P.

    Here we go folks! Anticipation in domination A sea of hearts beat as one, unified Magnification, all generations Approaching thunder awaiting the light Full speed or nothin', full speed or nothin' Lux æterna Lux æterna, yeah Exhilaration, frenzied sensation Kindred alliance connected inside Commiseration, sonic salvation Cast out the demons that strangle your life Full speed or nothin', full speed or nothin' Lux æterna Lux æterna, yeah Lux æterna Emancipation kill isolation Never alone for the feelings alike Amplification lightning the nation Never alive more than right here tonight Full speed or nothin', full speed or nothin' Lux æterna Lux æterna, yeah Light it! (Btw, those guys are about 60 years old, been doing this for 40 years and are about to go on a 2-year tour. . .) Last time I saw them live (probably 20 years ago) They had this thing where the stage collapses, pyrotechnic failures, guys falling from the rafters. For those that didn't know, it seemed real. It was a play-off a real pyrotechnic failure when James got burned live on stage. Anyway, after the collapse, these guys played old school ride the lightening under a single hanging light bulb for 30 mins straight non-stop. Who does that? Anyone who plays knows that's near impossible. Just the band and the crowd - More energy than lights and pyro could ever create.

    I shoe-goo my booties fairly regularly, and keep them on whenever it’s convenient (the snaps can be persnickety), and the booties have never been the first thing to go. But DONT goo where the elastic across the bottom (if you have that) attaches to the bootie, because the elastic can’t be replaced if you do that I probably have 500 jumps on this jumpsuit, and it’s showing its age. I’ve reinforced some of the leg seams, but it still works. Wendy P.

    The cable repairman was on my street and asked me what time it was. I told him it is between 1 and 5 pm.

    Two old friends, Ned and John, lived for baseball. Then one day, John died, leaving Ned inconsolable. A few weeks later, Ned heard someone calling his name. He looked up. Standing on a cloud was his old pal. “Ned,” John called down, “I have good news and bad. The good news is, there’s baseball in heaven!” “Great,” said Ned. “What’s the bad news?” “You’re pitching Sunday.”

    I love my Aurora. It is only recommended for wingsuit flying.
