  1. I'm still here.

    I spend so much time moderating the BASE Zone these days that I rarely get to sign as on $kin anymore.

    There's only one Tom Aiello...

  2. What a bunch of queers!

    It's no more difficult now than it ever was than it ever will be.

    You could die on any jump. What difference does it make that you could do bird if you get caught?

    BASE is for renegades. You get got caught.

    Jeb is the perfect example. He knew the score, he did the deed regardless. Risk management 101.

    Figure out your values and act accordingly. Lie in the bed you made.

    Too many light weights in this "sport" already.

  3. Knowing you're both batting for the other side this paints a really nasty picture.

    Good luck with the assoplasty.

  4. I asked a five year old.

    His response was "Get a fu(king life you idiot."

    In future I shall not ask five year olds whose birthdays fall on February 29th.

    My own thoughts...If a disfigured midget on a unicycle was juggling on top of a building and you jumped it, would you record:

    a) Building
    b) Your mom.

    14 more please Mr Aiello. Good day.

  5. I am an insider looking out. Anyone who uses a self-credited signature line appears to be a total twat.

    Deceptive appearances or 100% accurate?

    I particularly like the [again, presumably self-styled] moniker "Butter Stotch". Nice.

    Perhaps an even better one would be Miserable, unintelligable, hairy-arsed, blue-faced, tight-fisted, Mel-Gibsonesque, skirt-wearing, heroin addicted shop-lifting Stotch Bastard".

    There. I managed to insult an individual in the US and an entire species of sub-human cock-gobblers in one sentence.

    My work in 2006 is complete.

  6. Who cares?

    Fewer people in NPs means fewer rangers and more safe bandit jumps.

    Nick's right. It's only a matter of time because the pure bred BASE jumper wins either way.

    The only loser is the MTV kid who wants to show his buddies how cool he is but can't risk the prison sex that accompanies a stay at the gray bar motel. $hit...we knew you were a loser from the getgo. Victory is ours. Not given to us but yet again stolen. Renegades can't ultimately lose because nature loves purity.

    Lick my love pump, bitches.

    ok then its on we need a dead pool


    That's exactly what we need. In fact, we can populate the list with the names of people we don't like so that we can actually root for the participants.

    Too cool.

  8. "He probably did." - [to be said out loud while you wiggle your first two fingers of each hand next to your ears like some half assed moose / student hybrid.]

    You should probably put the pipe down.

    There are a few very competent BASE jumpers who visit regularly, use this forum to pick their brains to let them point you in the right direction.

    I remember when Grandma started to go a little dotty. It was funny at first but then the strippergrams just started getting old.

    PS You meant very few, right?

  10. Easy guys. I think he's learned his lesson now.

    Dangerous Dan, I confess to being the lucky soul who recovered your rig. The colour is a little unstealthy for me so you can have it back...for 500 quid plus the rights to use your spankin' nickname.

    I did nuts on it a couple of times as revenge but other than that it's cool as a cucumber.

    I left it at Mac's place for safekeeping and I want my identity to remain secret so put the money in an envelope and drop it into the Oxfam shop on Kensington High Street. If you wink three times at the lady behing the counter she'll know who it's for. The rig will be waiting for you on a bench near the kids play area in Kensington Park by the big wooden ship within the hour.

    All cool?

    PS Tom, it's All this time and he still doesn't know how to pronounce the name of the website.

  11. Sorry, old chap. I figured that a real man's arm would've had some biceps sticking out past the top of the bridle but your arms really are that shape.

    I'd better get a new monocle.


    You tool!:)

  12. That's awesome.

    The bridle tucked into the crook of the elbow is just priceless. So much for not being able to fuck up hand-held.

    Incoming salad-tossing gimptanglement.:o:P

    What else did we learn?

    1) We continue to fail to learn by the lessons of our predecessors.
    2) Our enthusiasm far outstrips our skill level
    3) These trends continue to accelerate
    4) Very few will absorb 1-3 this is the norm.

    Next verse, same as the first.

    We have forgotten the basics in favor of less appropriate, more ostensibly impressive skills.

    Two mantras that aid the quest for the perfect score.
    1) Keep it Simple, Stupid!
    2) Execute the basics flawlessly.

    The bit when you schlare the tarp is kind of critical. From the point at which your start to pack your canopy you are preparing for this moment. How strange that the instant foot and earth are reunited has become an arcane and forgotten detail in favor stunts such as not packing at all. I believe the reason for this is threefold...the new school is too impatient to pack and too scared of freefall and the old school is too worried about being seen to be left behind by the kids.

    There is nothing less BASE and more crap than jumps without purity (unpacked shit) and not being able to land on a dime no matter where it is placed.

    We should pull that fucking bridge down. It is becoming the birthplace of an increasing problem population.

    How do you like me now, bitches?

  14. Dressing like that in Denmark is probably the reason for the infection.

    Rest up, buddy (but lie on your back this time).
