  1. but aside from that BOOM! 164 way Nice one people
  2. What can I say, I'm an adult, and tend to conduct myself accordingly. Most sarcasm (especially on the internet) is condescending and insulting and really not something that should be applauded.

  3. +1 US older guys work better with ANALOG because we were raised on clocks and watches. The younger gen has had digital all their lives. for them analogue is more difficult as it's foreign You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS!

  4. You could do much better by feeding those videos through Microsoft's Hyperlapse algorithm. Instead of taking every 10th frame from a single source, as they do in the demo, you'd use frames from different cameras with similar orientation. Then, by changing the frame input order, you could create a virtual camera that's free to travel throughout the entire formation. Oops, sorry, I forgot to turn on the sarcasm font. Why did you even bother with it. It reads like petty jealousy, even though you dont freefly. Aw, shucks, Squeak, it's been so long since you got up in my grill. I've missed it so. And if you read that as petty jealousy, methinks you might be projecting. I'm cheering heartily all my friends who are participating in this record, as I have friends who've done other records and competitions.
  5. We would like you to say horrible things about your instructor John. Im assuming it's John Mitchell, he sucks as an instructor More on point, nerves effect everyone differently, for some it's the nervous anticipation that allows them to perform well in stressful situations, for others it can be paralysing and everything in between. Personally other than initial door fear on jump one, I had no real fears at all on any of my AFF jumps. On jump 50 however, I near shat myself and was almost terrified. people in the plane noticed and were concerned for me. I jumped and have been doing so since, but on that day at that time I was scared shitless. and even 1700 jumps later I still get a little nervous if I'm at a new DZ, or havent jumped in awhile, or even when I am attemping a bigger than normal or more complex jump than is ussual. It's a normal reaction to putting your life at risk. If I ever lose it, I'll consider giving skydiving away, as for me at least, that would be complacency, and complacency in this game can get you dead.

  18. it depends, can I be of assistance in any way without the camera. If yes, then put it down and assist. if no, then I'd probably continue to film. But most likely I'd drop my arms in shock and awe if it were violent and sudden. 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?
  19. I was at Snore for Flaj Flaj in March, I jumped last with Suds last year, but he's moved to the Orient and gone off the radar now. Sack almost died speedflying, but only ended up with 2 broken legs, I told the prick to try harder next time at to stop disappointing people.

  20. couple of us used to say "hope you die mother fucker" all the time, until someone in the airplane got offended. why would that stop ya Sudys, Sack and i still say it. Last time I jump at Snore with Sudsy, there was a camera chick with a neck tat and no sense of humour. She wore red tinted Flex goggles i asked her if she chose that colour to hide the blood when it starts to fill them. She got offended suds and I just laughed as we exited, we had a great jump, laughing the whole time You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS!
