    I got the Pfizer booster on 10/5, when it was being offered to anyone who had the second Pfizer shot at least 6 months ago

    It gets you 67 in 100k

    You conveniently sidestep the idea that your "doctor" may be a naturopath or chiropractor. That is to say, not actually a doctor at all.
  6. lol yeah you can tell by the video that i nearly femurred and bled out
  7. Which part is BS, and what does DGIT mean? You can watch my landing and judge for yourself how wildly dangerous you think it was.

    Those who believe vaccine mandates to be unamerican may be interested to know that our country's first (inoculation) mandate was instituted in 1777 by George Washington, giving us a strategic advantage contributing to our victory in the Revolutionary War. Our country was founded on vaccine mandates. https://www.loc.gov/rr/scitech/GW&smallpoxinoculation.html?fbclid=IwAR0DCON5VQ_rXOMm2mwLZ6SXC3QBnaKCY9vc6IlK-ZUjFKbDsE2Rj2yc8i0
  9. OMG guys I finally just realized something... I could have cut the stows that the brake line was tied around. fuuuuuuuuuck... Reserves are really docile, and you weigh less after chopping. Judge me if you want, I don't really care--I had a nice soft landing on my tippy toes.
  10. I see people using these for CRW and flocking as well. The slim is probably the model to get.
  11. I've heard some people say the sabre 3 opens better than the 2, but I don't have significant personal experience.
  12. Ok I've read the article now, and I don't see anywhere an implication that wing loading matters less for a bigger jumper, or that a bigger jumper at 1.2 is analogous to a smaller one at 1.0. In fact, the author refutes that notion directly from the very start:

    Looks like WebMD isn't such a great source.

    Right... Billvon quoted an article from WebMD and then you quoted an article from CBS and pointed out a flaw in it... Completely separate articles...

    Lol you're the one who cited the reference. What do you think you're proving by pointing out flaws in references you're citing yourself? This, combined with an excess death measure lower than COVID deaths, could be compelling evidence that COVID deaths are being over-counted. As it turns out, excess deaths (675K - 850K) are the same or higher than COVID deaths (680K), indicating that COVID deaths are either accurate or under-counted.
