    You've got quite the Closer Encounters of the Third Kind obsession going. When are you going to sculpt Devil's Tower? Can't wait to visit the lifesize one at the exit point! It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  2. Stay the course. Stay the course. It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  3. Fly to L.A. and go to http://www.bungeeamerica.com/. They use a real honest bridge. It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  4. I agree with the use of some kind of "vouche for" system, and not just for the "locals database" (which, like Inzite, kind of freaks me out). I think the "vouche for" system should be used for posting (or even lurking) in certain forums on the site as well. It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  5. What's weird about that statement is that I would have worded it, "The canopy can feel a lot weirder than with no PC" since 96.1 percent of my jumps used a PC. It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  6. What was the bridle made of? Dirty laundry? It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  7. I think I remember watching that canopy surging backward on opening when you were jumping during the "Yuri Incident." Did you ever sort that issue out? It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  8. And when we, the BASE jumpers as a whole start saying, "Yeah, there's a chance I might kill an innocent bystander down there. Oh well. 3-2-1 C-ya!" we've seriously hampered ourselves in the eyes of your law. I'm pretty sure I won't be killing any innocent bystanders, as I am pretty sure I'm not going to be sprouting wings. My parachute works pretty well. If I didn't think so, I wouldn't be jumping. It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  9. There's a possiblity he could sprout wings, too, but it'd be pretty rare and has never happened (as no one doing a building jump has ever killed an innocent bystander), so... It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  10. Recently someone commited suicide by jumping off the observation deck at the ESB. They didn't impact the street or sidewalk or anywhere there might be pedestrians. They impacted the roof of a lower level of the building. No danger to pedestrians. If some very, very rare reason Jeb went in with nothing out, I don't think he'd have been a danger to any pedestrians either. It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  11. You noticed that the recent suicide didn't hit the street, right? It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  12. I thought I read somewhere that the Sorcerer requires that the main canopy be out before the reserve can come out. Isn't the main packed on top the reserve canopy? If it's true, and the main is already out, then I'd probably always pack the reserve slider off. But also if that's true, then the two canopy system doesn't do much to protect from PC in tow or hard pulls. I've never seen one in real life or in pictures really, just a few fun-a-way videos. Can the Sorcerer reserve be deployed without first deploying the main? It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  13. Nice one! And doing it during the day makes for good video! I like! It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  14. Thanks! I did some calculations to try and figure out how fast I could have the vehicle going without hurting myself on opening when the vehicle speed and the delay started intermingling. After my brain started hurting, I decided on 30 mph. My biggest worry was having the sideways velocity cause a big off heading and/or line twists. In the end, it wasn't that hard to exit and/or gymnastically turn into the relative wind before opening. Or I was just really lucky. The biggest affect the forward momentum had was on the visuals. I exited where the steel arch was lower to the ground and fell toward the center where there was open airspace. That felt really nifty. If I remember correctly, you've done the Hobo BASE, right? It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
  15. Bacon! Drat! I passed up an International House of Pancakes on my way to Qdoba for a huge burrito later that day. It's time now! My time now! Give me mine. Give me my wings! - MJK
