    Contributing to a broken jumper?

    (Not directed directly at Iago, just last post on the thread.) But I would like to give a quick thank you to all the people who felt it necessary to drag the discussion that belonged in this thread to one that was put out there to try to help someone. Thanks to you it was requested by certain people close to the person that it be taken down due to the negative turn it had taken. Apparently no one can respect any sort of bad situation enough to keep discussions that don't belong in that thread separate. The fact that you felt it necessary to drag the topic of this thread into another for your own agenda is mind boggling. Thanks to you, and your need to bad mouth people who are injured when you don't know the full situation, many donations have probably been lost. I'm often amazed at the coldheartedness on this site, and the lack of thinking about how your post might hurt someone close to the person involved. This is rampant in the incident threads where it seems people can't seem help but bad mouth a person who is dead or gravely injured without thinking that friends and family might be reading that stuff. So thank you for having a hand in someway destroying some of my faith in humanity, and for convincing me that my decision to leave this site a few months ago was the correct one. If you want to discuss what I've said do so amongst yourselves, for I will not be bothering to read or reply to any responses. I'm done the obscene amount of immaturity and lack of general courtesy that runs rampant on this site anymore.

    Fundraiser for Andy Copland!

    As I said...he doesn't spend money on jumping. He only ever does work jumps.

    Fundraiser for Andy Copland!

    I'm trying to keep my cool with you people. There is another thread for this discussion about whether or not you would contribute. THIS thread is for those who are willing to help others no matter what the conditions. And just to be clear, he was WORKING when both these jumps happened. He doesn't fun jump, he only does working jumps. So this money isn't going to fund more jumping. If you read my update you would see that his condition is pretty severe. So please, take your discussion about whether or not you would help a fellow skydiver and human being to the appropriate thread. Here is a link for those too inept to find it on your own. http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=4206347;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC;forum_view=forum_view_collapsed;;page=unread#unread

    Fundraiser for Andy Copland!

    Here is an update from Andy's fiance for those who actually care and aren't here simply to badmouth a fellow skydiver who is also a nice guy: If you're in this thread simply to bad mouth my friend, please do so elsewhere. This thread is intended to raise funds and support for someone in need.

    Fundraiser for Andy Copland!

    On Saturday, May 4th, we are having a fundraiser for Andy Copland at Skydive the Farm. Sunday evening he had a canopy collapse at the Farm and he's in pretty bad shape. His medical bills are piling up quickly, and like a lot of full time skydivers, he does not have insurance. Even if you are not able to attend the fundraiser itself, a paypal account has been set up for donations. ALL proceeds will go directly to Andy and helping him through the very tough times he has ahead of him. Every little bit helps. All donation info is on the facebook event page that I have linked below. So please, take a moment and help him out. https://www.facebook.com/events/552494484801780/

    Booth's Law #2

    So Booth's Law #1 was brought up in an incident thread. Which naturally got me to searching (I had never heard of your laws.) I really like and agree with Law's 1 and 2. What are the rest? Harry Potty has been out long enough that you should be done reading it by now.

    RIP Rev Jim

    Haven't been on the forums in a while but then I heard about this. Never got a chance to meet him in person, but we chatted a bit online. He was a great guy who will be missed.

    Thanksgiving!

    Just my parents and me this year. I may have an "orphan friend" come. Depends on if she can find a car to drive home to Alabama or not. However, looks like I'll be doing all the cooking this year for the first time. (Mom still can't get around well enough to cook a basic dinner, let alone Thanksgiving dinner.) Hopefully I don't kill everyone. lol But, I thought, just to be nice, I would share with all of you the best cake recipe there is. Guaranteed to please. I made it last night. 1 C. sugar 1 tsp. baking powder 1 C. water 4 large eggs nuts 1 bottle tequila 2 C. dried fruit Sample a cup of tequila to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the tequila again to be sure it is of the highest quality then repeat. Turn on the elctric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point, it is best to make sure the tequila is still OK. Try another cup just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eegs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the fruit up off the floor, wash it and put it in the bowl a piece at a time trying to count it. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit getas stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver Sample the tequila to test for tonsisticity. Next, sift 2 cups of salt, or something. Check the tequila. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don’t forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the tequila and wipe the counter with the cat..........

    Skydive Pennsylvania, Grove city PA

    That is where I started. Great DZ. Most DZs up there are closed this time of year due to weather. But I highly recommend going there to learn. Great people and you'll learn a lot.

    Super Bowl XLVII

    --------------------------------------- wow. your homerism is showing. Perhaps you didnt see Ben Rothlisberger running away to the hospital where the steelers BARELY beat the 1-7 kansas city chiefs. Dont make me laugh any more than you already have. Nothing definitive has been said about his injury yet. And yes, we have a tendency to forget we still have to play even when we're playing against a crappy team. But I am NOT a fair weather fan. I always love them and always believe they will get there and win until it's certain they won't. And we WILL beat those dirty birds on Sunday.

    ~ Flu Shot

    I never used to get them. Oddly enough when I was an EMT my employer did not offer them to us. Weird seeing how much disease we were surrounded by everyday. But my current employer gives them out for free. And considering the year before I started working hear I contracted the full on swine flu, I started getting them.
