  1. The Times-Call article was revised this morning: http://www.timescall.com/news/ci_30678502/colorado-court-appeals-sides-mile-hi-skydiving-longmont Obviously, Gibbs still hasn't learned a damned thing.

  2. And just in time for Christmas! "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  3. I think we need a DPREGuy opinion here. It sounds to me like the appellate court has upheld the decision, but is sending it back down to the lower court to reconsider the orders on awarding of legal fees to the defendant. ETA http://www.timescall.com/news/ci_30678502/colorado-court-appeals-sides-mile-hi-skydiving-longmont ETA Entire text of decision (link to CQS website): http://citizensforquietskies.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/20161222-Appeal-Opinion.pdf See page 15 "Respondeat Superior"; It looks like the court just wants the lower court to elaborate more on the reason for awarding that portion of the award.

  4. No... Gibbs has no clue how foolish she is. She doesn't understand what a complete idiot she has shown herself to be. She will find a new avenue for her fight, regardless what the court says. In fact, my guess is she rushes out to buy a bigger shovel!! $100 says she is already asking her attorneys about how to appeal to SCOTUS. There are times I feel sorry for Weiner & Osofsky; It must be a PITA having a fruitloop for a client.

  5. Well, I just stumbled across something that surprised the hell out of me: The state appellate court put the video of the appeal on Youtube! Note: There is 22:07 of "Please Stand By - Broadcast will begin shortly" at the front of the video, so I have set this to begin at 22:07: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qaqgefh-g40&t=22m7s There are apparently 3 unrelated cases on this video, but the first one (15CA1159) is the CQS case.

  6. I just stumbled across this trivia today. James Franklin Oldham used the name "Jim O'Brien" professionally. He had a daughter named Peri Kay Oldham. After her parents divorced, her mother married Allen W Gilpin Jr, and she took her step-fathers name, becoming "Peri Gilpin". This was the name she used as an actress when she played "Roz Doyle" on "Frasier". Here is the news report of his accident and death: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lp5pbcKc7A "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  7. In the CQS v MHS trial, it came out that one of the witnesses had set up a microphone->computer interface to auto-generate noise complaint emails based on any ambient sound that exceeded a threshold. Here is an article about Heathrow complaints where someone auto-generated complaints using a different method: In January last year the airport unearthed a scheme whereby campaigners were using automated software to generate complaints against the airport. Officials caught out the set-up when the two anti-Heathrow enthusiasts forgot to take into account the hour going back in October, and began complaining about flights that had not yet taken off or arrived.

  8. I'm guessing they just don't want to waste time listening have what they have already reviewed in the case documentation. I couldn't find a clean copy of the CAR, but here is the redlined version with the last changes: https://www.courts.state.co.us/userfiles/file/Court_Probation/Supreme_Court/Rule_Changes/2015/2015(06)%20redlined.pdf The reference to "28(j)" is outdated; It is now 28(i). "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  9. From CQS web page today: Oral Arguments in the judicial appeal (Quiet Skies vs. Mile-Hi Skydiving) have been rescheduled. We hope to see you there. Pursuant to the order of this court, Oral Argument in the above referenced case has been scheduled for: December 13, 2016, 1:30 PM Court of Appeals Courtroom 3rd Floor 2 E. 14th Avenue (Denver) In accordance with C.A.R. 34(2), length of argument is limited to 15 minutes per side, unless additional time has been requested and granted for good cause shown. Also note that C.A.R. 34(c) prohibits reading at length from briefs, records, or authorities. If supplemental citations, as permitted by C.A.R. 28(j), are filed they should not include argument and should be filed, when possible, no later than 7 days prior to the scheduled argument.

  10. I had an ex-GF who kept nagging me about it; So I'd just look her in the eye, and exclaim: "Well, somebody's gotta do it!" Then the bimbo would earnestly try to convince me that it wasn't really my duty. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  11. Article: http://qz.com/811270/us-airport-noise-complaints-come-from-a-handful-of-people-who-risk-making-air-travel-costlier-and-more-polluting-for-everyone/ Study referenced in article: https://www.mercatus.org/publications/airport-noise-nimbyism PDF: https://www.mercatus.org/system/files/dourado-airport-noise-mop-v1.pdf "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  12. From Gibbs FB page this morning: Oral arguments in the judicial appeal (Quiet Skies vs. Mile-Hi Skydiving) were scheduled for Oct. 19th. Mile-Hi requested a continuance (delay) and the court has granted their request. We will keep you posted when we have the new date. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  13. POV video posted today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTTOnvvEpn0 "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  14. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  15. We're still waiting on the appeals court ruling. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  16. I would think the FCC would like to hear about that. (Former radio amateur here.) "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  17. Your details are incorrect: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vesna_Vulovi%C4%87 "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  18. If that guy can change spark plugs in flight, I'll really be impressed! "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  19. I can just see it now; from 25k ft and you do not have to worry about any reserve being in/out of date. Jerry Baumchen The net will also come in handy at the Cat Chasing Championships, to save the uncaught cats for reuse. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  20. Yah, I have my doubts about that. But whoever built that giant net might get a bump in sales. Especially after they paint a giant bullseye on it, and hold the first accuracy meet. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  21. So what is the reason for doing the jump at 25K? Seems like doing it at half the altitude would have avoided the bother of O2, and made spotting simpler. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  22. Something else that occurred to me: If I was going to be hitting a net at terminal velocity, some dense padding on my back might be welcome. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  23. Take a look as he is hugging his wife after landing. They do a 360, and I see no evidence of a rig. And do you really think they didn't talk to the FAA about this??? "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
