  1. Well, I'm sure it'll help! Good luck and have fun. PS: I wish you ruled the world for some time! I'd like to see what would happen to all the planes! PPS: Get a dropzone and I'll come to you PPPS: Let's get back to topic shall we? Honestly Anon, get out of here and stay out untill you have your A. You won't need much preparation, the instructors are supposed to be the only help you need. Cheers! From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  2. hahaha! What do they expect from noobies? That's like they expect you to do everything right from jump #1. For example to remember to pull on one of your first AFF's (Ehh? See what I did there?) And hey, are you still backsliding? Maybe some tunnel could fix that too And most important of all: Keep drawing and keep posting! I'm addicted, I check it every day! Now, let's hope i'm not getting arrested for stalking From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes

  4. Do you ever really get used to the falling sensation? For example if you've been in a swinging ship a couple of times, the feeling doesn't simply dissapear. It gets less annoying over time. From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  5. Texel, a beautiful place to jump at. Highest fatality rate too, due to the great sights everyone keeps staring at Good luck and have fun bro! From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  6. Some people can't find the line between being a massive dick and making a tention breaking joke. This crossed that line. Glad you had a fun jump though From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes

  9. I vote 'd' I thought that was the best answer. Serious now: The headache could have just been stress. Maybe let a docter decide. If it isn't bad for your health, you may get used to it and not even notice it after a few jumps. From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  10. Troll alert 10 yr old thread So we tell people to use the "search" function and when they do we slag them off for it?? Search function? Oh uhh, yeah. Let's just stick with that. And why would I be a troll by bringing back old and fun threats? It's not like I'm sitting here with a bag of popcorn, waiting for a flamewar
  11. Troll alert 10 yr old thread Threats That shouldn't be forgotten shall return. Why not restart an old one From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  12. Heard these once: Right before jumping: "You connected these last lines right?" - TM: "after this jump, I might be allowed to jump by myself! So please pull in time and make a great landing" From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  13. Not A Bad thread to revisit 10 years later best money spent would be airfares. Travelling to meet folks like the Mitchells and the Remsters and the Chemasexys etc... yeah, i found it quite interesting and what the hell happened? Part of my message turned into symbols??

  14. The windtunnel before my AFF. It probably saved me some do-overs. AFF was a great investment too. Being only 16, it's hard to get enough money together! I hаvеит ьоughт аиy еquipмеит yет, маybе шhеи I hаvе моге jцмрs, I шill From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  15. http://ezinearticles.com/?Why-Do-People-Skydive?&id=28569 (damn right I made that clicky!) I came across this article, and it was really interesting. It explains what I've tried to explain for months. (preview of article:) "No one I've ever talked to has been able to put into words the sensation of skydiving. Even asking first time jumpers - is there any way to describe what you just did - only elicits a wide-eyed, grinning, no way." ... "Mentally it is an incredibly refreshing break from "society". Skydiving is a super stress reliever. When you are skydiving, you focus on that skydive and nothing else. This keeps away all the distractions of life. No room for stray thoughts or worries here. The intense focus and the pump of adrenaline leave you feeling mentally and physically cleansed." You may reconize some of this in your own experience. From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  16. It's not getting oxygen through "thick skin" that's the problem; it's trying to get anything through a "thick skull." As long as the oxygen would reach our bloodstream it would be fine. That however is not the case From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  17. Marijuana is a hell of a drug... Seriously, what were they smoking when they wrote that? I weight 220 pounds, and this chair is amaazing! It's holding up my body without dropping it From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  18. Whoops, my bad! That's pretty smart. Are you still using the tunnel at the moment? From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  19. Congratulations on the jump! The windtunnel isn't a bad idea. It helps you fly stable when you jump on your own, so that's one point you'll have to pay less attention to. Some ground school won't hurt either There's a lot of information on the internet, like on youtube (humans seem to learn things easier with moving pictures). But you never know if the info is legit. A book will often tell the truth. I'll let someone else name a booktitle for you
  20. *massive trolls alert.* I better run From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  21. Omg I didn't see you had 999.999 jumps and 99 years I should have never thought that you were trolling me. Pass me some of that popcorn, will ya? From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  22. Are you trolling me? We're talking about humans here. Worms breath through their skin, yes... But do you? Don't think so. From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
  23. "How do you breathe in freefall? Breathing during freefall is not difficult in any way. Because of the pressure and high rate of speed, oxygen molecules will actually enter through your skin as well as your lungs until your parachute deploys." http://www.wisconsin-skydiving.com/questions-about-wisconsin-skydiving.php ...what..? Did this guy just run out of writing ideas? It doesn't matter how fast you go, the oxygen molecules will NEVER go through our thick skin. Right? From 0 to 12.000 in 9 minutes
