  1. Is this any better than the vented Toxic pilot chute?
  2. man, I just disoriented that the calculations came out ok. it was a multiple year effort and i cried when the calculations came out ok. Regardless, Felix is the man, my hero, like Joe Kittenger and when I talked to him, it was so cool, like almost talking to Neal Armstrong. I just so astonded it worked. Don't spell check me on this post 'cause second word is missing a 'm. Looks like a death sandwich without the bread - Steve Deadman Morrell, BASE 174

  4. thank you. Looks like a death sandwich without the bread - Steve Deadman Morrell, BASE 174
  5. thanks y'all. i shed a tear when I saw him him open his canopy. it was really neat that missile defense knowledge could be applied for something like this. what was really cool was when I talked to Joe Kittenger back in 2010. Joe is my hero. It was like talking to a fellow daredevil - it was awesome! Looks like a death sandwich without the bread - Steve Deadman Morrell, BASE 174
  6. I am the aerodynamics scientist on this project. His speeds (once confirmed) matched my calculations. This was like watching a moon landing I'm told. I shed a tear that all the work that went into this project with me (I did a lot less than the rest of the team) actually worked! Chris Stokely Physicist Jumper of some sort or another.

  7. But now a days we do have the technology to identify people who would want to detonate 100lbs of C-4 strapped to a container of Cobalt 60 or Cesium 137. So we should identify them. We didn't have mass produced Radioisotopes, 747's, or other WMD's 100 years ago. They had to kill people the old fashioned way, 1 at a time. . mustard gas, nerve gas, botulism, plague infested fleas... just saying. All of which were not unavailable to smart people in that era.

  9. It would be great if we the people could jump El Cap legally. It appears though at the current signing rate that we are not going to get the 5000 signatures required to make it an issue to White House. It seems like we are going to have to start multiple voting. Vote often. Looks like a death sandwich without the bread - Steve Deadman Morrell, BASE 174

  11. What if I claim I'm black but "look" white? I could claim it was a mistake on the form or I could claim someone crap about genetics and traits. Looks like a death sandwich without the bread - Steve Deadman Morrell, BASE 174
  12. So, man leaves... Woman keeps business and must own more than %50 of it to qualify for the benefit. It's a twisted form of corporate affirmative action. I've dealt with affirmative action on an individual level but this whole SDB thing annoys the crap out me. It appears the way to rid ourselves of that system is to politicize it and have it reduced or removed. Or I could just marry a woman and start a business with her with a iron prenup.

  13. I cannot put on makeup every day to attend work or school, like C Thomas Howell did in his movie Soul Man http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZFTSCLzGTE&feature=related Looks like a death sandwich without the bread - Steve Deadman Morrell, BASE 174
  14. I know, but it's much more rampant in the government sector from what I've observed over the last 20 years. Looks like a death sandwich without the bread - Steve Deadman Morrell, BASE 174
  15. Something has always irked me. I am a scientist and I have worked at national laboratories and NASA. What irks me is that a majority of the contracting agencies that provide people for these jobs are so-called "small disadvantaged businesses." Aka, SDBs. Let me explain: if you are not white OR not a male, then you can form a staffing company and GET INCREDIBLE PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT from the government. Almost every staffing company around the government brain centers are SDBs. One of the schemes male scientists/engineers would do once they got married was to have their wife start the company with her as president. This worked well until their was marital strife and the man was kicked to curb. In Houston, when I am currently, I am in the minority. Same thing when I was in Atlanta. Why in the hell am I still federally discriminated against for being a white male? What do you think about such lucrative preferential treatment?
