  1. Yep, things have gone to the dogs and the dogs have gone from the DZ. Nothing like stepping in a dog dropping on a hot day. Freefall Hall
  2. It boild down to these items.. IQ -/+ Wide hips 36/44 busts 39 -/= Freefall Hall
  3. Most people that I have met or will meet dislike me immediately. I am smarter than most people but I can't do most crossword puzzles or make change in my head. When I go most people will not acknowledge ever meeting me but the operative word is "go". I am going to stick around until I can beat old George Bush at jumping. I don't like most people and they don't like me, even my wife says she can't stand me except on payday. I ave made a couple thousand jumps but neve with a friend. Freefall Hall
  4. I never was a real nice guy and most people will find it easy to not miss me when and if I go but go is the operative word and I intend to hang around a long, long time. To hell with dying doing something you love but if I have to I hope it happens in bed.
  5. Not bad for a diversion Freefall Hall
  6. It is about strapping on a rig and stepping out of an airplane. Freefall Hall
  7. Sounds like a heck of an idea. No thanks expected. I have a few more if you are interested. Freefall Hall
  8. Well, opinions are easy to come by and everyone is entitled to one or two or three. Mine are based on over forty years in the sport. Freefall Hall
  9. There have been over 1000 fatalities in this sport since I first jumped. I would estimate that the great majority of them were preventable. I recall a study years ago indicating that a majority of female fatalities were experiencing a period at the time of the fatality. I don't have a dog in the race but self denial, meditation and common sense will get you to your old age.
  10. Look at it this way. I have seen a million people driving vehicles who wouldn't be safe walking unassisted. Just accidents waiting to happen and during the last 45 years I have seen my share of jumpers who are also at risk due to lack of common sense. You won't find SOS jumpers competing in canopy formations. Freefall Hall
  11. Age isn't the problem. The problem is when a jumper fails to recognize reduced capabilities as they age. This woman could quite possible be experiencing menopause at 48 and that condition is well documented as contributing to fragile emotional conditions. There are old jumpers and bold jumpers but damn few old bold jumpers. Personally I adjusted my performance when as I aged. I admire the youngsters but cannot hope to compete with them and I don't believe they would care to strap on a B4 with a cheapo and a four pin container where hard pulls were the norm. As was landing on sum baked turf without doing a PLF. Hell, they probably don't even know what a PLF is. Freefall Hall
  12. Todays Parachutist carries info on a wrap resulting in two fatalities. A male and a female with 8K jumps combined. The female was 48 and probably too old to be involved in canopy formation jumping. Bottom line - two dead.
  13. Forget terms; liberal,conservative. The proper address is "have' and 'have nots". Since the beginning of time it has been a contest between haves and have nots. The engine that drives haves is profits. The engine that propels have nots is need. These are basic human traits installed by nature and irrevocable. The hungry will come after those with food. Those with food will kill to protect what is theirs. Religion and politics are merely symptoms of the human condition manifested by the needy. It has ever been so. Freefall Hall
