  1. This may have been asked before but is there any way to obtain the video from the Freefly Chronicles series? Does anyone still have the VHS cassettes? Better still, has anyone digitized them? I used to have volumes II and III and they were amazing. It would be a shame if that little slice of history is lost.
  2. Just pick one, call them up and ask for a job. http://www.skyventure.com/tunnels/locations/
  3. I guess the point I'm making is that you probably wouldn't want to "encourage" the untwisting of a single line twist by pulling on the riser. Or do you disagree? It would be good to have procedure to follow if we find ourselves in such a situation.
  4. Well, except for the full line twist on the main. Would a single line twist on one canopy of a two-out mean it's not landable though? You still have plenty of nylon over your head.
  5. Nik is a great coach. I've done over 6 hours with him during the last two Xmas boogies. Really good ability to analyze your weaknesses and design drills to correct them.
  6. Texas is a notable exception...getting shafted even worse than California. But not worse than New York.
  7. You still haven't figured out that: 1. You and people just like you are the ones causing this nation to be divided. Oh, I see. It's all Ron's fault. All that 'class war' bullshit that has been spewed by the left has been completely meaningless. I don't know about the rest of you, but when someone slaps me in the face I write them off. Screw 'em. Show me where I said that the right was the cause. I said people like him, not republicans. first of all he claims to not be a republican. Secondly he is as divisive as anyone that I have ever seen post. He continually posts about how stupid and horrible half the country is then complains about how divided things have become. People like him on both sides of the aisle are the reason that we are so divided. Then he continually advocates that half of the country secede from the union. If that isn't divisive then I don't know what is. As for the second part. The blue states continually contribute more in taxes than they get back while the red states get more than they contribute. Than means that the lazy freeloading blue states actually are the ones that support the hard working patriotic red states Well good, at least you acknowledge that it's a mutual problem. You guys who bitch about "makers and takers" should take a look at this article.
  8. Words that sound like Obama, or loudspeakers with his face on? (good for community organising) New iPhone form factor.
  9. I just knew someone would bring that up. Priceless!
  10. Huh? The GOP cannot gerrymander. Second, I live in Cali and gerrymandering is downright extreme here. And third, name a district that has not been gerrymandered. here are the ones I know of: (1) Alaska (2) Delaware (3) Montana (4) North Dakota (5) South Dakota (6) Vermont (7) Wyoming (8) District of Columbia Because they only have one electoral district. Other than that, it's all been gerrymandered. Drawn and redrawn by the parties in power. Yes, both parties are not blameless here. But the aggregate stats that Kallend provides show that Republicans do it to a greater degree.
  11. Such a chicken..... Chickens will continue to lay eggs. As for predicting human behavior, only a moron would think that possible. We should all be such morons.
  12. If they do run with it, it would be a prime example of them overplaying their hand. The 47% video is devastating enough - no need to pile on. Besides which, other than the word choice for "harvest", what Romney's saying is not that different from your garden variety venture capitalist spiel. Nothing to see here.
  13. It's a "shame?" really, a shame? http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?do=post_view_flat;post=1971076
  14. It's possible. Even probable. Post a gaffe from the RNC convention that is as good as the one above. Umm, how about the fact that Mr. Romney never even mentioned our troops in his speech at all?
