    a six second video would be amazing!!! :) 

    Learning by experience is a far better teaching method. 

    Grab your rig at home sit down in the lounge and muck about with closing the main tray different ways.

    Did you see the flag?  I'm in Papua New Guinea for a two-year posting.

    right now my biggest problem is my goddamned left knee which is getting replaced next week, then IDK how many months rehabbing it to jump again. I went to LP this summer and didn't make a single jump because of this damn thing. 

    Anyway, that's my world. :D

    you still had fun :) and you're the new Steve Austin dude, you'll be faster better than before :)

    Equivalent of USD 6.85 / gallon here :(


    It just cost me $145.00 to fill up 80 litres
    That's 21 gallons so $6.90 AUD per gallon $5.00 USD/gallon

    ***You're missing a key point here. It's got NOTHING to do with you.



    I'm not missing that point at all. It's his mistake to make; it's his lesson to learn. That doesn't make it any less disappointing to see.

    Again (or still) missing the point. It's their choice, it's not a mistake. Jut because you would do it differently does not even imply that anyone else has to choose your path. Your idea of success and potential, is not the same as anyone else. Try to not judge others by your blinkered standard.

    ***Well, the military can pay for his education, so there's that.



    As scholarships would have. Of course, most of those for which he was qualified immediately out of high school will no longer be available to him when he is discharged.

    Don't get me wrong, it's better than graduating and getting a dead-end job. Or graduating and not making any effort to move forward. It's just not the best path for an outlier-smart kid to maximise his potential and increase the value of his contributions.

    You're missing a key point here. It's got NOTHING to do with you.
    How he chooses to live his life and how he directs his energy is HIS alone to decide.
    Maximising potential is a bullshit term.
    If he's happy doing what he's doing then Job done.

    ***Wait- so you're impressed that they were capable of donning their dress uniforms for an outdoor ceremony in the summer? Wow.



    ————————————————————————————-

    I donned my dress uniform for hundreds of ceremonies in summer, winter, rain, etc. but no one ever explained what was accomplished by standing around for a few hours.

    I am still waiting for an explanation.
    ?????????????????????????????????? a Visible presence a show of ceremony, tradition, and unity. What you accomplished was you physically and visibly REPRESENTED your country's defence force.
    I have stood in full dress uniform in 100+ degrees for 2 hours in an honour guard.
    I don't feel a need to question why.

    ******current prices in Belgium:
    95 unleaded: €1.53
    Diesel: €1.55

    95 unleaded is €1.79 in the Netherlands currently. Thats $2.01, per Liter, not gallon. So you can do that times 3.8 roughly.

    20 gal would roughly be $152 in the Netherlands, $134 in Belgium.

    So yeah, 40 bucks is cheap. dirt cheap.



    YUP Yanks have no clue how good they have it in regards Petrol costs. It cost me $110 -$120 AUD per week to fill my vehicleYou can thank your government for that. The oil isint really any more expensive in AUS or the EU, but the government taxes the shit out of it so most of what your paying is taxes and not the cost of the fuel itself. REALLY :o WOW:o

  13. Hi Sunny B|

    I miss the NOT USA thread where all the folks who are awake at the time of USA night (and night owls like Amazon) would get together from all around the world and chat. It was almost a live mIRC chat :)

  14. Man there;'s a lot of negativity in here.

    Chica take it seriously but have fun,:)
    40 years riding and no major issues, I would recommend once you are comfortable on the bike to take DEFENSIVE rider training. and also find a "Track day" event (if there is one in Alaska). You'll learn heaps about cornering and braking from a good "track day".

    Congrats and have fun:)
