  1. These are words I use in more complicated speech, like technical writings that I do for my job… that I have a hard time with: Acquiesce [I ALWAYS misspell this!!!] Queue [I use the old word for it… “spooler”, but it confuses engineers sometimes] Prestidigitation [fancy word for “magic”] Dawdle Recombinant Truculent Re-factor [I forget the hyphen here, there is no “refactor”] I also have a lot of Southern phraseology that I use in my speech that I have trouble spelling in emails. For example, when I think something is broken or fucked up, in front of a nice person who is sensitive to guys who swear, I’ll say it’s “caddy-wumpus” instead. ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES!

  2. Or in a woman's face (or a man's! ) when they can feel your pulse through your... ugh... unit. ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  3. iiiiiiiiiiinteresting ::mini-me voice::
  4. I don't know. The dachshund that holds the record was never afraid of skydiving. The dog would turn its head and track the cameraman and even dock with its paw. Dogs love to stick their heads out of car windows, many will do it even when the car is going at high speed. I bet the dog is in paradise under canopy! I say if the dog wants to jump, buy it a jump ticket! ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  5. Bet that dog gets all the bitches ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  6. Pfft. Y'all are poodles. ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  7. I have an Italian Greyhound, which is cool for small houses and apartments (looks exactly like a greyhound, but only comes up to your knees in height). I would recommend a Whippet. They are full of energy and their batteries never shut off. They are also very needy pets, so they'll demand a lot of attention from your children when they get old enough to play with the dog and take care of it. Go you YouTube and search for "Whippet" to see what these dogs look like. ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  8. Can't blame you. You have no idea what kind of condition those bundles are in, and how well they are maintained. If they miscalculate your weight... At least with skydiving there are more factors under your direct control; namely the equipment. You can inspect every bit of it, and what you don't know or are uncertain about you can ask a rigger. Those bungee operators have no licensing that I know of, and they only inspect that stuff when they feel like it. I grant you that killing your clients is bad for business, but human nature being what it is... mh . I've sat down and tried to explain it at the DZ before many moons ago... as to why my fear of bungee jumping isn't conquerable. I think it has mostly to do with being so close to the ground, and my trust level is really low [are the dipshits who operate these things certified in anything? is there EVEN a cert. or standard for the equipment? ] In skydiving problems can happen mid-jump and you have time alloted to make corrections. Bungee? No. I also have had one frightening experience on an antenna tower (was maintaining it... not BASE) and add in the Faces of Death videos of bungee gone wrong... I really, really can't do it. Because I can't get past this fear, I would never do BASE either. I've also had one mal (which was me) where my shoulder was pulled out of socket and I was jumping a rig with NO-AAD. I was screaming like a banshee when I figured out what was wrong and I was trying to fix it [I still know how to do one-handed landings!! ], but it didn't stop me from wanting to jump again. I think you're right... knowing a lot about the sport and the equipment and your passion to do it is what overrides the fear to allow you to jump. ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES!

  9. Dayum! When I was new into skydiving (and going through the phase where you try to get whuffo friends into it)... the one thing the whuffos who have done the bungee would go into detail what it was like. I'm like... yeah-huh... Mmmkay. Bungee gives me the heebie jeebies. I will never do it in my life. I'm sorry I'm skeered! ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES!

  10. My list is pretty short. The Pitts Biplane (my most-favorite jump in my life at Rantoul.... oh god I want to get current again and jump that plane again I loved it... LOVED IT!) Cessna 172-182 Balloon (Dallas) Otter (most jumps) Queen Air King Air CASA ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  11. I can skate... but not this good Somehow doing this same thing on a bike (motor or chain) just has no oomph compared to inline skates with the heel brakes removed. ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  12. What is this? The only White Castle that I know of was the diner chain with the same name. They were all over Philadelphia but they shut down maybe a month after I moved up here. I miss WAFFLE HOUSE. I used to love Skydiving in Houston and stopping at 1 or 2 of them since San Antonio didn't have no Waffle Houses to speak of [big franchise named Jim's pushed them out of the area]. Crabby diner waitresses that always call a young buck names like "honey, sweetie, baby, shuga" ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  13. Just one day out of life... ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  14. Damn! ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  15. ROFL!!! Mama always sez: WRAP YOUR WHOPPER! ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.

  17. The day the minimum wage grunts who work for Uncle Sam ask me to take my cock out for God and everybody to admire just so I can get on a puddle jumper flight is probably when it's too much. ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  18. If we took a holiday... ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  19. You danced around the neighborhood in a lot of junk jewelry and bad clothes, singing? I bet he had hair scrunchies and a lot of arm ringlets. Holiday..... celebrate..... it would beeee so nice! hahhahaah ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  20. I have "thought" about it... and I've seen some PAs, some of those "barbell" through the entire head and it just... looks... painful. That, and you probably break condoms more often. ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  21. I'd like to get back down to 160lbs which is about 8% bodyfat for me, so I took up more cadio. I hate treadmills though. I let my weight swing back up to 185-190 and I'm hovering at 19% bodyfat--so the sixpack that I hard started to get has disappeared again. I did get a lot bigger though in the muscle department. w00t! 16 1/4" biceps, delts fan out 4" from my waist... so at least clothes I don't look pudgy I have a brand new pair of K2 speed skates (inline) that I use sometimes. I've had enough scares on them with Philly cab drivers that I would say the experience is like 1/10th of "door fear", and I've never done inline before (just ice). I'm getting better now... good enough that sometimes I cheat [holding on to vehicles at stop lights and stealing their acceleration]. I also go swimming at the gym. Philadelphia is such a cool city if you don't care to drive and like to use your bicycle. I bike everywhere. To work, to appointments, I take the bike on the subway. I'm a bit "dangerous" and I jam out on the iPod while I bike, but meh... I got life insurance. If I get my six pack back I'll post more nekkid pictures, how's that?
  22. The girls on dz.com are only gonna tell ya to get it done... and post LOTS of pictures of it. ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
  23. The bigger the truck... Well, you know how it is in Texas. It's true in Pennsylvania, too. Oh well, I don't have to prove anything, I'm already on here. ____________________________________________________________ I'm RICK JAMES! Fo shizzle.
