  1. Yes, that is the book I'm talking about. I'll give Square One a call. Thanks! We are all engines of karma
  2. I've seen a skydiving formations book that contains formations for 4-way, 6-way, etc. Anyone know where I can find a copy of this? RWTrainer already has a 4-way section. I'm looking to put together "general" dives so I can organize at my dropzone (not necessarily 4-way or 8-way or 16-way, all of which are contained in RWTrainer). We are all engines of karma
  3. Great suggestion. Thank you. We are all engines of karma
  4. I've been in the sport 30 years now. I have a hard rule that I follow: if you're going fast close to the ground, you can get hurt. Seen it too many times now. I want something stable, with a consistent flare so I don't have to run, and I don't want to bleed a lot of speed coming in, especially on no wind days. We are all engines of karma
  5. I'm looking for a 150. What should I buy? Any comments on Brian Germain's canopies? We are all engines of karma
  6. That's probably not a bad thing for you. With your attitude, you might get shot.
  7. That concept seems to be lost to some in this thread. Thanks for your service. We are all engines of karma
  8. It's the values behind the flag that people in this country die for. You clearly don't have such values. What an ignorant thing to say. Current borders exist today primarily because of people who were willing to die for the political systems within those borders. You're not capable of seeing that, otherwise we wouldn't be having this conversation. I probably pay more taxes in a year than you'll ever make in a lifetime. Are you still living with your mom and dad? Do you even pay taxes? How many of your friends served in the military? I've lived in many major cities around the world, and I've always found people who are willing to die for their culture. I tend to get along really well with said people. I don't share values with said people. Actually, I find their values to be incompatible with mine. That's one of the major reasons they are still living in mud huts, and I'm not. I'd love to see you go and burn a Pakistani flag in Pakistan. Please video it when you do. I'll look for it on liveleak.com. I hope you never see the day where you may need to die for your values. Something tells me, you won't. And that will be the day your values end up on the trash heap of history, where they belong. We are all engines of karma
  9. I was raised in Louisiana. They tend to take that pretty seriously, rightfully so, IMO. We are all engines of karma
  10. You clearly were not raised in a culture where being willing to die for your country and its values is something that is a point of pride, discussed over the dinner table, and used as an anchor in political discussions. There are lots of people, mainly in "fly over country", that have that value, and live it, die for it, and it's because of their efforts the US continues to be a sovereign country. It is their efforts that allows assholes like you to burn flags. The next time you see someone in a uniform, get your shit together and say thank you. Their cultural values far transcends your punk ass values, IMO. You and your ilk are the last fucking people that should have any say in the direction the country is going. With your values, we wouldn't be sovereign for long. We are all engines of karma
  11. Where do you fill up when you're not at home? BTW, I wish I had your skill set in this area. My wife doesn't let me use power tools. She's not worried about me, it's the innocent bystanders she's looking out for... We are all engines of karma
  12. The current path we're on, absolutely. We are all engines of karma
  13. I doubt that. It'll be a epochal day in the planet's history. Especially when you consider the number of D-T fusion reactors required for distributed production. There will be plenty of work to go around. We are all engines of karma
  14. I'm not seeing anyone in this thread advocate against that. We are all engines of karma
  15. Seriously, the current weight fraction of CO2 in the troposphere is 0.0004. Just in case you hadn't noticed, that's an incredibly small number. Over the next hundred years, that's expected to increase to 0.0008. From that, an increase in temperature of ~1DegF is expected. Considering we already have ~60DegF warming due to water vapor alone, I find it hard to see how an additional 1DegF is going to produce catastrophic results. The Earth is not that fragile. If it was, we wouldn't be here. I am more than happy to see Earth's population reduce the 40GT+ of CO2 and equivalents that's being pumped into the troposphere each year. But, the methods used to address this need to do two things: 1) It's got to work 2) It needs to be cost effective. Nothing being advocated by Paris Agreement participants is going to do either of those. Giving UN agencies $1 Trillion per year is absolutely insane. We are all engines of karma
