  1. I understand Martin Sheen is being held for questioning in Brando's death. The horror, the horror... "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  2. Now wait a minute. Why are three little babes talking about attacking ChasingBlueSky, when it was I who made the initial comment about height? Why should HE have all the fun? "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  3. Aren't ALL men tall from your perspective? "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  4. When is tongue appropriate, and how much? "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  5. "Now when I give you this signal, I want you to pull NOW!!!" "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  6. But Ron, take a good look at the photo; There *IS* a dummy there! "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  7. Plus you would have to put up with hooknswoop giving you shit if you didn't do it. Funny thing happened at the DZ last week. A low-time jumper in the packing hanger was fussing with his brake lines. A second low-timer was watching inquisitively. Second jumper: "Whacha doin'?" First jumper: "Untwisting my brake lines. My rigger said I should do it on every pack job." Me: "Is your rigger named 'Derek'?" First jumper: "Why yes! How did you know?" "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  8. Yes, that would certainly make on-line sex more interesting.
  9. Hmmm... This must be the first plank of Derek's campaign platform. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  10. I also use this suit with 2 differences: - I ordered it with the material doubled, so it is even more effective. - I ordered freefly cuffs on the legs, so I can also use it for FF. It makes a very nice all-purpose suit. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  11. Hey! Those Quakers do DAMN good pack jobs! Just remember that if you watch, it is forbidden to speak while he is packing. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  12. ::breath, breath:: ~R+R Hey, I just located Dave's website! http://www.electricamish.com/ "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  13. No, you don't look anything like Billy-Bob Thorton. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0307987/ "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  14. Hmmmm......that would depend on how big your.................plane is! Hey, size isn't everything! How fast it can get up to altitude is important, too! "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  15. And some people at that DZ STRONGLY disagree with that rule. On a 2-way linked FF exit, I took a knee HARD right in the jaw. Had it not been for my Factory Diver, that would have been broken jaw and/or teeth. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  16. LMAO!! You're only asking because you want someone to change your flat so you don't have to get dirty. I LOVE to get dirty! "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  17. WHAT DZ would let you jump at 17? As I understand, the waiver is a contract giving up your right to sue, and a third party cannot give up your right for you. (LawRocket, can we get an opinion?) If you can't wait until you are 18, then contact Mike Mullins to see if he will adopt you.
  18. Oh, swell; Next you'll have the squirrels lined up in your yard waiting for their turn. Then you'll have them at your door complaining they want a BIGGER Squirrel Flinger with TURBINE power. Then you'll have neighbor McNasty complaining about the flung squirrels landing in his yard.

  19. If you are getting LESS freefall time in a track, there is something really wrong with your tracking. I'm 6'2" and 225 out the door. In a stable belly I average 125-130m/h. In a solo tracking dive, I average 90-95 m/h. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  20. The easiest way to identify them is to search for postings by "ron" to see who he is squabbling with today, and then avoid them. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  21. Have you noticed with the RWS system that when its new, the stiffness of the bridle can push the kill like semi-uncocked? I noticed this a bit over the past couple years, with various new Vector3/M-series/Microns. By no means was it a scientific study, just something I noticed. I hadn't noticed that happening, but I like the fact that I can cock the bridle with the canopy bagged and in the container just before closing the flaps. And I don't need to worry about the killline capturing the canopy. In fact, my standard procedure is to cock the PC before I start packing, and then cock it again just before closing the container, to ensure I never pack an uncocked PC. I adopted this practice after the day I had packed my rig, and then about an hour later it occured to me I couldn't remember cocking the PC. So I pulled out the PC, and sure enough, I had packed myself a mal. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  22. I can't understand WHY some companies continue to build collapsible PC's this way. A quick glance at how the Relative Workshop does it proves there is a hell of a lot better way to do it.

  23. After looking at the profile, and seeing "Lo-Po Reserve", I declare a troll. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
