  1. Hope this hasn't already been posted ... http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/05/21/supersonic.skydive/ _______________________________________ Website: Dick’s Stuff Is it still considered a naked skydive if you’re wearing a helmet?
  2. Well, I can't figure out how to delete it. You'll have to do it for me.
  3. Quade: The writer is clearly identified at the very start (even before the music hits), and again at the end. And, I only directed the thing ... that's not my voice as Batman. As for misleading folks with the "XX" and "NSFW" that's a matter of opinion as to what is and what isn't. Sorry I caused any problems. I'll delete it.
  4. WHAM BAM ... a 10-min radio drama we threw together last Friday with little rehearsal. CAUTION: It's "XX" rated, NSFW Click Here _______________________________________ Website: Dick’s Stuff Is it still considered a naked skydive if you’re wearing a helmet?
  5. WOW! I just discovered my house is sitting on a rich deposit of unobtanium! _______________________________________ Website: Dick’s Stuff Is it still considered a naked skydive if you’re wearing a helmet?
  6. Some say it was Emperor Constantine who converted a December pagan holiday into Christmas in 336 AD. Others say it was Pope Julius who did it in 350 AD as an attempt to bring the Catholic Church into existing social celebrations & traditions. But, regardless of who did it, what difference does it really make if it happens at the same time paganism holidays did? If they had picked July for Christmas, there were pagan holidays then too. In fact, I think it would be cool if a modern day pope moved the commemoration of Jesus’ birth to July 4th. That would really mess-up the retailers who have spoiled the existing date … and we could have fireworks too. _______________________________________ Website: Dick’s Stuff Is it still considered a naked skydive if you’re wearing a helmet?
  7. THE WORLD CANNOT END ON A SPECIFIC DATE … because there are always TWO days/dates in progress at any moment. If it DOES end on a certain date, it would happen in 24 small increments (15-degrees of longitude) as the date SLOWLY moves westward from the Int’l Date Line. For example, when it’s December 21st in New Zealand, it’s still December 20th in New York. Those of us here on the west coast of the U.S. watching CNN will probably see it happen to most of the rest of the world before it gets to us. If you live in Hawaii, you’ll have even more time. _______________________________________ Website: Dick’s Stuff Is it still considered a naked skydive if you’re wearing a helmet?
  8. Here's a map which might better explain the problem in Mr. Camping's prediction ...
  9. Harold Camping, who has a ministry called "Family Radio", now says the end of the world will be October 21st, 2011. Do you suppose that means it will end in New Zealand & Australia before it does in the U.S. (since they're a day ahead of us)? At 12:01am on Oct 21, 2011 in New York, it will be 10:01pm the day BEFORE in Denver which means two full hours to watch it on TV and to start repenting! _______________________________________ Website: Dick’s Stuff Is it still considered a naked skydive if you’re wearing a helmet?

  11. The IMAX movie "EXTREME" is finally available on DVD. Unbelievable photography of surfers, snow skiers, wind surfers, and ice/rock climbing. (Sorry, no skydiving) The music is cool too, especially in surround sound. Anybody who likes action sports needs to see this one. It's fantastic! No, I'm not selling them. _______________________________________ Website: Dick’s Stuff Is it still considered a naked skydive if you’re wearing a helmet?
  12. I don't know much about economic issues, so please explain this to me. Why couldn't the bail-out money for this latest crisis be given to home owners who have lost (or about to lose) their homes for the sole purpose of paying off their mortages? That way the companies who made those bad loans get their money, and people get to keep their homes. I'd sure feel better knowing my tax dollars are helping my fellow citizens instead of some company who made reckless business decisions. Cooments? ______________________________________ Website: Dick’s Stuff Is it still considered a naked skydive if you’re wearing a helmet?
  13. Have 'yall seen this? http://youtube.com/watch?v=QokpXX9L8qM I hope this isn't a re-post. If it is, I'm sorry. Website: Dick’s Stuff Is it still considered a naked skydive if you’re wearing a helmet?
  14. Tuesday, March 25, 2008 6:45 PM MDT SEATTLE - The FBI says it's analyzing a torn, tangled parachute found by children in Washington state to see whether it was used by plane hijacker D.B. Cooper. Officials said Tuesday that children playing outside their home near Amboy, in southwest Washington, found the chute sticking up from the ground this month. FBI agent Larry Carr says they pulled on the fabric as much as they could, then cut the ropes. They had seen recent media coverage of the Cooper case and urged their father to call the FBI. Cooper hijacked a plane from Portland, Ore., to Seattle in 1971, got $200,000 and asked to be flown to Mexico. He parachuted from the plane somewhere near the Oregon border, and officials doubt he could have survived. __________________________________________ Website: Dick’s Stuff Is it still considered a naked skydive if you’re wearing a helmet?
  15. I think landings like that happen more often than we'd like to think. A few weeks ago I was on a commercial flight from Denver to Portland landing in high winds. The plane dipped right & left several times as we approached touchdown with the left wing coming pretty close to touching the ground. (Too close for my comfort, anyway.) We had a cool pilot, however, who was able to level it out at the last second.
