  1. I like the idea! Instead of having the glass tube contained inside a building, have it free-standing on top of a tall building, so that you are hundreds of feet above the ground. That way, when you look around, instead of just saying walls, you would actually get skydiving-like scenery. That would be awesome!
  2. That's an expression that means he heard nothing in reply. Like sitting outside on a quiet night when all you can hear is the crickets chirping. He didn't actually get a box full of bugs. I hope!

  5. They can start by taking those 350 Bills that have been log-jammed sitting on Reid's desk, and start putting them up for a vote. Up or down. One or the other. But don't allow them to just languish with no action. Everyone will now switch roles. The democrats, who have been defending their actions, will now become the complainers. The Republicans who have been the complainers, will now become the defenders. Everyone switch hats... now!
  6. Need more info... Was the loop brand new? Where did it break? At the loop? The knot? Somewhere in-between? What kind of material was the loop made out of? 550-cord? Spectra? Do you use a leverage tool to close it? How do you remove the pull-up cord when the rig is closed? Are there burrs on the grommets? Sharp edge on the loop washer? Show everything to a local rigger and have him examine it. Yes, something is wrong. Might be the rig. Might be the loop. Might be you. If it broke on jump 6, you probably should have noticed something wrong on jump 5, and replaced it.
  7. Oh, thanks. I thought it might be an airport code. That might be a common abbreviation in the PNW, but I don't think the rest of the country knows it, especially down here on the FGC.
  8. Well that does it! No nuclear reactor for them!
  9. Click "Dropzone" above. Search Louisiana.
  10. The only thing that comes to mind for me is this: For want of a nail the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe the horse was lost. For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the message was lost. For want of a message the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail. But I don't think that's what you're looking for...
  11. This begs for a satellite photo link of your new airport so we can all admire it with you...
  12. Another story with a photo of Ann Barbarich: http://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/news/62847694/air-nz-pilot-collapses-after-landing-dreamliner I always like to see photos of people that are being talked about...

  14. Re: Candy cigarettes. Nice to know they're still available. I figured the political-correctness police would have outlawed them by now. Other fun childhood candy: What about pixie sticks? Those straws that contained flavored powder inside. You would bite off the end, spit it out, and pour the powder into your mouth, a little at a time. How about those little wax bottles containing flavored liquid? What were those called? You would bite off the top of the "bottle", and pour the syrupy liquid in your mouth. For a real treat, you just popped the whole thing in your mouth and bit down on it, for an explosion of flavor. And you could chew the wax too, like gum, although that never did anything for me.
