    Ground Crew Etiquette

    I would tell them that the whole dropzone that is there for the after sunset soirée is looking at them and talking about how cool they are.

    Taken For Granted

    I try my best to stay in character while floating around in Europe but sometimes I have to speak engilsh as I can't drum up the technical words for things. Switzerland is another animal though. They are a quadlingual country (Italian, French, German, English). America still hasn't broken that language barrier. people bitch that they have to choose a language at the atm machine. Spanish? I thought that was only good for partying in Mexico.

    Near Hungen, Germany

    Yes there is. It would be super wise to get ahold of a local though. I will see if I can look up a contact. Germany has recently changed some rules regarding leaving objects with silk overhead. Ask me how I found that nugget.

    Bushnell Laser Rangefinder

    the real history of BASE jumping

    It's cool that we can trace the lineage of the Protec Half Ace. The mystery has plagued us for years but now we have proof they existed that long ago. :rolleyes:

    Fatality in the Swiss Valley. 15.04.06

    Did Stephane frequent the Horner? Can someone maybe descibe him to me in a PM. I am trying to narrow down who this is. I have made jumps with two locals but I am thinking of one in particular. Thanks and sorry for losses here. Fly free brothers

    Land Purchase Under NRGB - Latest News

    It's like that in every Fayetteville. It's the curse of the name. Maybe you should change the name of the town first. I suggest "BRTTBB" (Backwoods Rednecks Trying to Be Big Time). Man with all those constanants you could pretend it is a Serbian colony.
  10. I would have told him to use the main with one riser unhooked and tied to his buddy's shirt. Then I would go on to say, if you have a video camera duct tape it to your right hand pointing back at you and tell your soon to be shirtless buddy to mail the tape to me no matter what happens.

    Responsibilities of selling a rig...

    You're just fucking with nature. Keep them from buying your rig and they will jump something they can get their hands on, like a skydiving rig. Why don't you just sell it to Tom A or Johnny Utah or one of the guys that do FJC's 'cause that is the only way you are going to know that it's going to a jumper. Shit, you can smoke in any of my old shit. It's nature at it's finest.

    Quote of the Week

    "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride!'"- Hunter S. Thompson -Comitted suicide I hate misquotes. * Source: Rolling Stone, June 1994 Why bother with newspapers, if this is all they offer? Agnew was right. The press is a gang of cruel faggots. Journalism is not a profession or a trade. It is a cheap catch-all for fuckoffs and misfits - a false doorway to the backside of life, a filthy piss-ridden little hole nailed off by the building inspector, but just deep enough for a wino to curl up from the sidewalk and masturbate like a chimp in a zoo-cage.

    Fatalities, leaving a jumper behind, and the Pact.

    That's what I am talking about! I started this rollercoaster in the same way and continue to live "The Creed” every second. You know before the Rangers, SEALs, and everyone else coined that motto it was common damn sense! The absolute worse thing that could ever happen after a death is not having closure to it. The living are the only thing that has a chance to provide it. "The I don't knows" are almost worse than the event itself. If your own traumatic stress comes from your own near death experience, you've probably been thinking way to highly of yourself. If there is any confusion that you need to see a buddy through please let me know and I will let you know where you stand. Just because one dumbass has a horrible plan to "save" everyone else doesn't mean you have to follow through. Suck it up!

    How to intervene?

    Tell them to stop taking the calculation out of the risk. Unless that is what they are going for, then see how much he wants to do it after an ass beating. It might be your ass getting beat but it will at least drive the point home.

    BASE Ethics: A crock of shit?

    No that is called making chinese eyes picking your nose, and masturbation.
