    The success of West Germany and South Korea, with the corresponding failure of East Germany and North Korea, pretty much blow his thesis out of the water.

    Hey stop it right there, don't drag us into your mess. We know that climate change is real, we know the importance of public healthcare, we know that more guns doesn't mean less shootings and we tend to check the things our politicians say for facts before we elect them. So please leave Germany out of it.

    John and others here will rejoice at any failure of the current admin I have to say that if the Republicans don't get some of the low hanging fruit out of the way.... FAST ......many of their believers will fall away.

    I really really doubt that the republicans will loose any support whatever they do. If we approach this from a rational perspective they should have lost all support when they essentially blocked the goverment for the last four years or started spilling lies.

  3. That is actually one of the things I don't understand of all this. It was obvious from the beginning that he was either a liar or a con artist. But neither of these qualify to be leader of a country, how can someone not see this?
    How can you not understand that Trump represents everything Hillary haters have been saying about her, for example they say that Hillary is bought by corporations and the industry. Trump IS the corporation, he is the embodiment of all the things Hillary was accused of. And yet people voted for him, I don't understand how people can not see this. Its so freaking obvious....

    Maybe I am too young or my view on the world and humanity is too simplistic in general, but I am really not sure anymore if democracy is the right means to achieve long lasting peace and prosperity in the world after 2016.

  4. Fair point, but there is a catch....

    If the base price changes then the end price changes too, so since the base price changed dramatically my assumption was that it should change as well for the consumer and that's where I opened a thread on to ask about it.

    By the way sinking fuel prices mean also sinking shipping/delivering costs.


  5. Seriously guys, read first before you reply. I wasn't bitching, I asked politely about the connection between oil- and ticket prices.
    Because I don't understand why the dramatic drop doesn't have any effect when its affecting the general economy pretty heavily.


  6. I get your points, but keep in mind that the prices have been going down A LOT, I mean according to this source ( the price has been at highest in August 2013 and went down by more than two thirds until today.

    That's not just a little drop, I mean that's huge. I have no idea how much percentage of a jump operation is made up by the fuel price.
    But I jump on a small non-commercial DZ and in the recent years the main reason for the price going up as we have been told was the fuel. So I'm asking myself why the ticket price doesn't go back down with cheaper fuel since it was the reason to go up in the first place.


  7. So the oil price has been falling like a heavy bellyflyer with addiotional weights but somehow nothing changed about the jump prices, at least here in europe...

    I wonder if someone could shed a light on the relation between falling oil/kerozene prices and jump tickets.



    Edit: Oh, since they say, that they have a hydrogen bomb it must be true.
    "According to Kim Jong-Il's official biography he was born on Mount Paektu under a double rainbow as a new star appeared in the sky."

  9. Pretty much sums it up

    "Vaccination doesn't cure people, guns do" - rushmc

    "Global warming is a lie." *drives away in his Ford Raptor with 18l/100km* - rushmc

    "More guns = better security, more fat = better health." - anonymous gun advocate

    "Everyone not supporting my views is a democrat, scientific proven research will be ignored until I find some shady source claiming the opposite. Oh and thanks Obama" - rushmc

    Sorry if anyone gets offended, except rushmc and the people making similar claims... you have lost every right to be treated with respect. Just couldn't hold it in anymore after all the bullshit I had to read...

  10. Don't argue with the intelectually less gifted ones, they only pull you down to their level and as a reasonable human being you don't stand a chance there.

    This whole argument is senseless, people who agree that more guns for everyone means a general increase in safety prove their stupidity in the first place. Funny enough that its the same type of persons who drive big ass trucks and deny global warming.

    The thought of sharing the sky with those guys scares me the hell of a lot, let me guess that those are also the kind of people who believe that AADs make no sense....

  11. Hey everyone,

    so I just came back from a ten days trip to flystation St. Petersburg and I'm absolutely stoked!

    We stayed at the accommodation right next to the tunnel (30 seconds walk and you're in the tunnel) and were very happy with it. The Rooms have two bunk beds and a separate bathroom, nothing fancy but perfect for a group of skydivers on a budget. There's also Wifi in the whole building and a community room with a kitchen, a fridge and a TV.

    The vibe is better than on almost every dropzone I've been to and the staff is extremely friendly. Almost everyone at the tunnel speaks english and they will tell you how to get to the city by public transports or order a taxi for you, if you want.

    For the coaching we went with Boris Gaykovich(BigBug on He spent an enormous effort in coaching us with prebriefings, long debriefs and a, as it seems unconventional, approach to coaching.
    After 6 hours of flying without former tunnel experience we can do:

    Back to belly and belly to back transitions
    Backflying FS
    Front- and backlayouts
    Sitflying(Grips and over under stuff)
    Lift off the net in Headdown with some help

    All in all we are very happy with our trip and we'll return as soon as possible. If you have any questions feel free to pm me.
