  1. Finding it hard to have too much sympathy here https://edition.cnn.com/2018/10/01/us/bear-injures-alaska-hunter-trnd/index.html "A hunter in Alaska was hospitalized after the bear he shot rolled on top of him" Never try to eat more than you can lift

    Bruce Brown - The Endless Summer

    I must have seen that movie 20 times. One of the most evocative bits of filming ever. Never try to eat more than you can lift
  3. is that it then? Is it finished? Never try to eat more than you can lift
  4. The military have some - the ones I have exposure to are very expensive and designed for quite specific applications, not really relevant to sport jumping. I've spent time on one, and landed on an aircraft carrier amongst other things after every malfunction the guy running it could throw at me . Never try to eat more than you can lift

    G-force in canopyflying

    Wasn't there an incident/fatality with someone blacking out under a spinning mal on a tiny canopy some time back? So in answer to the OP - a LOT in the right(wrong) circumstances Never try to eat more than you can lift

    What was your first phone?

    My first phone was in the picture here: http://www.mobilephonehistory.co.uk/ericsson/ericsson.php with 1999 under it. My second phone was - I reckon - the best phone I ever had. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_6210 Practically bombproof, battery lasted a week, and it had snake.

    Tesla Engineering Question

    We are here to serve. Jerry Baumchen PS) Now, start teaching that young daughter about this stuff; she might just make a bundle & really take care of you in your old age. Jerry, you have no idea. This new generation growing up in a world where STEM is pushed hard to young ladies is something to see. Her capacity to look at things and figure out how to take them apart and put them back together is astounding. Computers are a breeze, programming is boring.. She says she wans to be a mechanical engineer. I told her "You can do what you want as long as I never see you with wrenches around my Harley." "Errrr dad I managed to get it apart but I am having trouble putting it back together....." Never try to eat more than you can lift
  8. I'd suggest you're probably not going to get what you want. The things that make a speed wing good are different design constraints to a skydiving canopy. I looked at this and in the end decided to keep the two quite separate and fly them accordingly - all canopy time is good! Never try to eat more than you can lift
  9. Not sure on cheapest way right this second but check out youpost by the NZ post office. That's how I always did in the past. Beware of customs duty/GST as well. Never try to eat more than you can lift

    What is strange?

  12. The language used in the report MUST be taking the piss: "At approximately 6:30 a.m. Monday, a car crash involving two pickup trucks sent one of the vehicles inside the AnalTech building of Newark, Del., leaving a giant hole. The truck damaged the facility's laboratory and caused an odor to emanate from the cavity" Never try to eat more than you can lift
  13. Would she not need some quite significant funding for this? Is there no calling time on her for wasting other people's time and money? Never try to eat more than you can lift
