  1. I have this issue too. But if you click the "Login" button on the home page, then you get another logon box, and if you click "user name" entry box there, it DOES remember your user-ID and password, and inserts the values for you. I take that extra step so I don't have to type it every time. But the initial logon box on the home page should do it too, so this is a valid problem. I use Windows XP.
  2. Tell. Then if he breaks up with you for the old flame, he wasn't committed to you anyway, and you're better off for it.
  3. Here it is! The prettiest rig ever designed. Send my free jump money to manifest at Skydive Dallas.
  4. I second the motion for the swimming pool.
  5. Go back to your beginnings in the sport - do a solo jump, do no maneuvers, just look around and enjoy the scenery, feel the wind, reflect upon the magnificence of what you're doing, and grin.
  6. Do you have to wear a robin's egg blue helmet?
  7. I understand such things have not been uncommon during final approach on runways. Take a low-wing plane at 400 feet and a high-wing plane at 300 feet, both on the same approach, and neither can see the other. As they get closer to the end of the runway, they merge...
  8. The vast majority of people who pay zero income tax do pay sales tax, property tax (even if in the form of rent, which always includes the owner's property tax costs), etc. If there were a flat rate of (say) $25 minimum, what would be the cost of administering that flat rate, and what would be the rate of return to the gummint for collecting it, enforcing it, etc. Would it be worth it? You might bend over to pick up pennies, but not everyone thinks it's worth their while. I think everyone should pay some federal income tax. We all need to be invested in America, and have some stake in how the money gets spent. If 47% pay no federal taxes, then that's 47% who don't care about federal spending, and thus we have out-of-control federal spending. If everyone had to pay something, then everyone would pay more attention to federal spending, and would vote to get it under control. Even if you only make $20k per year, you ought to pay, say, $200 federal income tax. We need something to make people a part of this country, and to care about how it's run. If half of all Americans have no stake in it, then we're doomed.
  9. Zero is not a fair share.
  10. I hate the way the 60-minutes host repeats much of what the SEAL says, as if it doesn't really count until he says it. I heard it the first time!
  11. Every gun sale made by a gun dealer is personally approved by the BATF. They ARE screened.
  12. There are also still too many parachutes out there in the hands of idiots...
