    Taking a break

    Look around for a good deal on used student gear from time to time. It's what I did. I only make anywhere from 1-10 jumps a year these days. I got an old Javelin with a 250/260 canopy combination for about $2k. "No cookies for you"- GFD "I don't think I like the sound of that" ~ MB65 Don't be a "Racer Hater"

    "Really, I was in the Army..."

    I still like the story I heard at Ft. Benning back in the '80s. Two MP's approach a guy wearing a class A uniform at the Columbus airport. On his sleeves he has Sergeant stripes and on his lapels he has the bronze oak leafs of a Major. The MP's inquire as to what rank he's supposed to be and he replies, "Sergeant Major".

    Latest on Tipping

    Tipping an instructor is quite easy if proper stealth is used. Just give a packer, S&TA, or DZO a fiver and have them get down on their hands and knees behind the instructor of choice. (The hands and knees bit should come quite naturally for the packers and S&TA. You may have to work with the DZO a bit.) Then lightly push the instuctor in the chest area. They tip over quite easily as they have no balance on the ground. "No cookies for you"- GFD "I don't think I like the sound of that" ~ MB65 Don't be a "Racer Hater"

  11. Oh I know all to well how devastating it can be. I'm still paying off 25K in medical bills.

    Would this situation annoy you?

    Yes. That is one of the reasons I hardly ever donate to organized charities. I dated a woman who was the manager of a NPO solicitation group for a diverse range of charities. She appeared to be doing quite well for being such a martyr. Turns out that most of the money you donate to organized charities goes to pay for the operating and promotional expenses of the NPO. And the salaries of it's employees. Most often 10% or even less of your money goes to the actual charity.

  14. What are the communities feelings on this ? I personally have no problem with a family or persons setting up a fund with a bank to be managed by someone responsible to defray medical expenses. Especially for those with extensive injuries that will probably result in a permanent disability. On the other hand, I do have a problem with people asking for donations to help with financial obligations, day to day expenses, and incidentals like room decor ?!?. WTF ? Really ? People say, "Oh, they're going to lose their house, car, boat, RV, or whatever. And their credit is going to be ruined. Everybody should pitch in and help them". My personal answer is tough shit, they shouldn't have been skydiving "No cookies for you"- GFD "I don't think I like the sound of that" ~ MB65 Don't be a "Racer Hater"

    Organ donation :/

    Perhaps the organs that the group was most interested in needed to be taken as quickly as possible at the time of death so as to actually have usable organ. Then again you would think the family would be clearly informed on why certain actions needed to be done in that type of fashion. I'm thinking perhaps there may be some miscommunication going on here. "No cookies for you"- GFD "I don't think I like the sound of that" ~ MB65 Don't be a "Racer Hater"

    Therapy or counseling for "Nice Guy Syndrome"

    But isn't that what the entire world believes ? The bullshit artist always comes in 1st. Especially where women are concerned. He who can tell the biggest lie and get everybody to believe it gets the golden crown. While the nice honest guys of the world finish last because the are obviously duds and have nothing worthwhile to offer.

    Therapy or counseling for "Nice Guy Syndrome"

    Anybody able to recommend the type of psychiatrist, psychologist, or therapist one should seek because it is their personal nature to be nice and thoughtful. Yes sometimes, no actually most of the time nowadays, these actions, especially where women are concerned are considered to be sinister motives. It is really sad that the world has come to this It is really sad that a person comes across another person that says that nobody has ever been very thoughtful or nice towards them. The 1st person sees this as an injustice and tries to correct the situation with some gifts and gestures. All the while trying very hard not send or give anything that might be considered romantic. In fact telling the other person several times that friendship is nice but it shouldn't go any further than that. Next thing you know person number one is considered a stalker, a villian, a sexual predator. Really ? WTF ??
