  2. your brother is not all that sciencey. Tell him to drop a pen and a piece of A4 paper at the same time, then walk away and tell him to Google it. You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?

  5. there's a lot of people moaning about "WEAK PLOT" It's POINT BREAK FFS, not Shakespere. The original plot was rubbish. It's an action movie. Stalones plots suck, Arnies plots suck, Stathams plots suck. die hard plots suck. They're not plot or character driven movies, they're ACTION FLICKS. STOP YA WHINING YA BUNCH OF BABIES.

  6. they're like 200km apart Seoul and Pyongyang are 200km apart. Does that make them "same thing" ? Kiwi's are notoriously bad at geography.I will kick you in the nutz for that insult. Freakin kiwi rude frenchman. 200km to an AUSSIE, is nothing, that's a tad shy of 2 hours travel time.

  8. the DZs are only 30mins apart. Stay at Elsinore and commute to Perris, There's quite a few places to eat within 15-20min drive from snore. You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?

  11. Im aware pf the Grelfab mounts and my position is unchanged. G3 is NOT a camera helmet and will not come off easily in the event of a snag. You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?
  12. pretty much any mount "CAN" snag. What's important here is that the G3 is not designed to come off your head easily. No cutaway system I have seen changes that. I have seen a DIY camera mount cutaway, where the base of the mount disconnects. This i thought was decent. Everything else IMO is pretty much useless.(Especially the fastex buckle and finger trap cord version). If you really want to run a camera get a helmet designed to have one on it.

  13. I've seen a bunch of these posts over the years. The conclusion i draw from them is that the vast majority of folks are with the WRONG partner. The should be NO permission needed for anything in a good relationship. No one should be telling their loved other that what makes them happy is wrong. No one should be spending all their time away from their loved one. by reading through this thread and other threads most of you lot should probably be and stay single.

  15. I travel internationally with my rig OFTEN. I have had it inspected and swabbed many times over the years, it's not just a recent thing. I always ask the Sec guys if they have handled a parachute before if they want to touch it. If they say no, i explain to them what they should not tamper with and why. I ALWAYS treat them with the utmost respect and courtesy. In 12 years of traveling all over the world with my gear I have never encountered a problem. Only ever on one occasion have i been told I could not take my rig as carry on and it went to hold. You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS!

  20. I asked earlier but got no reply. Whose money are you spending? Yours? Hers? Money for other things? If it's your money why is she annoyed? My SO is a non skydiver and we don't have these issues never really have. I jump pretty regularly, and travel a bit to do it. But it's not ALL i do. We have joint activities that we do, and she has her own interests. How ever I may just have more disposable income for jumping than many other skydivers, because I dont drink booze or do drugs. Therefore ALL my recreational monies are spent recreationally on things like Skydiving, old motorbikes, rock climbing and travel. My life is pretty freaking awesome :D You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?
  21. Never give in to "It's skydiving or me!" You'll live to regret it. Are you married or just "in a relationship"? I REALLY dont get this type of question, My wife has never questioned the things that make me happy. Nor I her. If you're not spending monies allocated to other priorities then it should be of no concern to anyone. Are you spending HER money?

  22. Incorrect and off-topic.it's not off topic, that was in reference to YOUR RIGHT as you put it to take anything not on the exclusion list. and how is it incorrect? It's off-topic because it's incorrect so is out of scope of this discussion. And you already answered why it's incorrect yourself. I'm sorry, but I don't have time to spoonfeed you. Please discuss the instant issue or feel free to use a different part of the forum. Thank you. OH ok I can see why it was disallowed now

  24. if your jump numbers are correct, I would hazard a guess that you in fact have NO RIGHT to take your rig on as hand luggage, because it will be above the maximum weight restriction for cabin luggage. Which in most case (not all) is 7-8kg. You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?
  25. Why, how has it changed or effected your dealings with them. I had an issue with my visoII and had a lot of problems with communications in Europe, HOWEVER the Facbook USA rep, was freaking OUTSTANDING in both communication and help. L&B is a small operation and as such can sometimes get swamped in emails or caught up in their daily non work lives. I tend to give the benefit of doubt, and rarely do I every take much stock in disgruntled posters on online forums. They do tend to colour their issues in a light most favorable to them and are hardly objective. You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS!
