  1. Not to mention the money being given to businesses.
  2. The above post is a perfect example of posting under the influence of heavy opiates Well everything didn’t really go according to plan, 7 days in the ICU instead of the expected 1 day, a total of 15 days in hospital. But I now feel great.
  3. Thanks, all is finally well.
  4. It could have gone better, I got a pneumo thoraxl in The ICU. The staff is great and my daughter who is an RT has been here the whole time kicking my and making me work. Hopefully I get the last chest tube out tomorrow and move to another floor.
  5. Anderson tore him to pieces, it was some of the most satisfying cable news that I’ve seen in a while.
  6. After 50 years of physicals and seeing nothing but bored faces while listening to my heart, watching her bored face turn to a concerned face was sure eye opening.
  7. Thanks for the encouragement, it’s reassuring knowing others have dealt with this.
  8. What a week, I had a physical on Tuesday and now I get a quadruple bypass and a bovine graft on the Aortic valve on Thursday. I feel like the biggest pussy in the world. But I’m extremely grateful that my doctor heard the heart murmur that set the process in motion.
  9. And so it goes... https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/01/02/us/father-daughter-hunting-death-trnd/index.html
  10. I just find it perplexing after spending trillions of dollars and thousands of lives to “liberate” Iraq, only to now find them Now allied with our main enemy.
  11. It sure seems awfully slow lately.
  12. I’m not sure why we would be bombing an enemy that our president has repeatedly claimed has been defeated.
  13. Hey Yousef, I would do a little research and try and find a DZ that has little influence from the weather. That’s a long way to come and then get rained out. California has very consistent weather in the summer. SkyDance, in Northern California has a pretty respected AFF. I would also try and find a DZ close to a tunnel, several minutes in a tunnel can save several expensive AFF jumps of being frustrated. There is a tunnel close to SkyDance. Cheers
  14. There’s plenty of “real work”, the lowest unemployment rate in decades. The unintelligent chose the option that defers the true cost of their labor until months and years later. They go buy a new $30,000 car and put 100,000 miles on it in a couple of years. Many people I know that drive for Uber drive 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, they try and tell me they make $25 an hour, yet conveniently forget they have operating cost, just like Uber neglects to mention operating cost when it claims its drivers make good money.
  15. Personally, I think this is the worst idea to hit this country since child labor. Between Amazon, Uber, Uber eats and their like, the millions of recently created jobs come with no vacation, holidays, sick pay, medical, or even workman’s comp. Amazon gig drivers are now regularly killing several people a month on the roads while trying to complete their ridiculous quotas so people can have same day or one day delivery. Who pays for these folks medical? The American tax payer. Jeff Bezos evidently doesn’t make enough to pay for a portion of the medical for the majority of his workers. You can never go broke betting against the intelligence of the average American worker.
  16. Just forget you ever heard about the 45 degree exit rule.
  17. 10 jumps and you have a “usual” landing pattern? Is that 7 AFF jumps + 3 student jumps? You should be extremely concerned jumping a 200. My understanding was it takes a couple of more jumps than 10 to go to a 200, Germain suggest 100 jumps at your weight to jump a 200.1
  18. If Obama owned a country club in Chicago and did the exact same thing that Trump does... Heads would literally be exploding on the right.
  19. Not all USPA memberships are not active jumpers.

    Screed

    Is it just me, but I never heard of this word until the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting. Now I hear it on a daily basis. Kind of like the word “Trope”, up until a couple of months ago I heard it very rarely, now all the time.
