  1. I've known more skydivers that were killed in jump plane accidents than for reasons related to skydiving equipment malfunctions or misjudgment. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  2. Went out to his DZ three weekends ago just to say hi to a real good old skydiving bud I hadn't seen in quite a long time, however, it was on a weekend he wasn't there at that time, three weeks later.........well.........RIP Scott. You were always someone so many looked up to starting out our skydiving careers. Airplanes have killed more skydivers I've know than parachutes. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  3. "I managed to crawl through 500 miles of sewage, only to surface in San Francisco where 3 hippie chicks found me and took me in and gave me a bath, fed me, and then we had a 4some. Now I just spend my time blending in with the crowd." The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  4. Kerrysmith, there's still not a day that goes by that Bob doesn't cross my mind, what a memorable person he was. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  5. There is a physiological condition called 'sleep paralysis' where you can 'half-wake' and it can be pretty freaky. When you're in REM sleep you're brain actually 'paralyses' you so you don't thrash around and hurt yourself. Sometimes, you will come out of REM and the 'paralysis' hasn't quite worn off yet. So, you're awake and your eyes are kinda-sorta half open but you can't move. Objects and shadows in the room and take on some pretty weird and freaky looking characteristics because you're not quite out of the sleep-state After a minute or so you come out of it and are fully awake and everything looks normal. But, if you don't know what it is you might be popping rounds off at nothing or running off to join the 'alien abduction' support group. Don't know if that's what you're talking about but it happens to me every now and again and it's really nothing to get worked up about. I take a look around, see that everything is back to normal, and roll over to catch some more zzzz's. Hell, I've paid lots of good money to feel that way. :-0 The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  6. There are an additional fair amount of gentlemen in uniform that presented with an old white guy aiming an AR at them would welcome the chance to carry out orders. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  7. Good thing the teachers weren't armed, they might have shot and kill this poor unfortunate. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  8. The Chinese obviously have a problem with their culture. I predict these attacks with a knife will continue to become more frequent. Instant NRA equalizer? The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  9. My heart breaks, RIP old friend. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  10. They're running out of old white people. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  11. If official valaditation of such records are that important to you in the whole grand scheme of things then that may show how small a person you really are, hence the minutia reference. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  12. No, I have five vehicles and have no need for anymore. As far as cancer is concerned......hope you get it. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  13. God, life must be pure Hell for anybody that this is a big deal to. Believe me, there are much more profound, life changing/threatening issues happening to people right fucking now, in the real world, to care about this minutia. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  14. Sued the maker of Zicam Nasal Gel about 10 years ago when its use ruined my olfactory system causing loss of taste and smell. They settled out of court and I have yet to $pend all the money I got from them. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
  15. Saw them live in a very small venue in Dallas late 70s. Just another one of those musical experiences that makes you feel like either burning every guitar you have or cutting off fingertips so you have an excuse. The older I get the less I care who I piss off.
