  1. I can’t really see the photo clearly, but is that redneck white trash actually wearing eye and ear protection to go on a mass-murder shooting spree? Only in America.
  2. Technical Feedback: I'm confused by the forum's new formatting/display of quotes. Honestly, I was reading this post by Ron and thought "damn he's actually making sense" before I realised it was Jakee's text in the same body as Ron's text.
  3. I’m quite disappointed with the new GUI of the forum. layout uses far too much screen space for single thread titles, threads & posts. removal of country flags for nationality/location The screen layout makes it slower and more cumbersome to use the site. On some of my other hobbies/interests forums (pilot & helicopter forums) there is always confusion as to whether the poster was asking/replying regarding North America, Europe or other locale – now we’ve introduced the same confusion here.
  4. Age 36 In 2002 on holiday in Cape Town, South Africa saw an advertisement for a dropzone (“Skydive Cape Town” near Melkbosstrand) and thought I’ve always wanted to do that. So the wife and I went the next day and both did tandems. On my video the tandem master asked me “If you like it; do you plan on taking up skydiving?” I replied “Yes, I think so”. I flew back to South Africa a few months later and did AFF. Why not AFF in the UK? In the 2002 the South African Rand (ZAR) had crashed against the UK Pound (GBR). So AFF was the equivalent of £350, tandems were £65 and I even got a custom-made carbon fibre helmet (rare in those days) for £40.

  5. Why? Lodi is a bit shit. About the same driving time will get you to Skydance near Davis, CA. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  6. If we are all God's children, what's so special about Jesus? "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  7. The recent missionary story is like the three attempts in this joke above: https://edition.cnn.com/2018/11/27/asia/india-body-us-missionary-intl/index.html They stopped a little less than half a mile away and waited in the dark. At some point in the morning, Chau "used a canoe to reach the shore of the island," Pathak said. He returned later that day with arrow injuries, police said. But that did not discourage him. He returned to the island the following day. It's unclear what happened but "the (tribespeople) broke his canoe" and he had no other option than to swim back to the boat. On the third attempt of his mission, he didn't come back. Looks like his Jesus also goes with "three strikes and you're out" "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"

    Burner phones

    There are two levels of security/anonymity: 1) The other party can’t trace you by number (or see your “real” number) 2) The other party cannot even link the physical device to you (higher-level stuff like hiding from the Law or NSA type stuff; not avoiding an old acquaintance) For basic anonymity, you could either use: 1) physical burner phone 2) physical SIM card put in any phone for the purpose 3) software solutions such as “Burner Apps” If you have need for an anonymous number on an ongoing or frequent basis, I’d opt for buying a pre-paid or pay-as-you-go SIM Card and put in an old phone.

  10. In the UK we're going to a "opt out" system in 2020; whereby everyone is by default an organ donor - if you disagree; you remove your name. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-45056780 This is what I've always wanted to be in place. I think choosing to have a much needed organ buried to rot (when it could save a life) is the ultimate in selfishness. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  11. Following the shootout of the small church in Texas, one of the churches in our area experienced an incident of moderate violence. We discussed and considered the situation and decided to have designated security personnel. Several other churches in our local area have done likewise. What do you do with your guns while snake handling or speaking in tongues? "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  12. Kind of puts it into perspective; I just Googled this and at 12 deaths this doesn't even put it in America's Top 10 for mass shootings. Also, that's three times in a row with no "brown people" to blame. I'll say it again - some crazy white guy with a gun is your real danger. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  13. Homeland Security is focused on foreign people with brown skin, however Americans real threat to safety seems to be more with domestic nutcase white men. Between FLA bomber, PA shooter and Kroger guy that’s three in the space of a day. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  14. Today’s mass shooting in Pittsburgh seems already on the usual track. White male, AR15, Dumbass in Chief saying you need more guns... "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  15. Don't know what you've been doing with your spare time, but (judging from your grammar & punctuation) it certainly hasn't been spending time in an English class. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  16. The news is discussing his mental acuity & capacity now. He’s got Trump stickers on his van. I think that definitively answers the query ... not very fucking intelligent. They’re describing him as the “MAGA Bomber” here; is it the same in the US? "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  17. Great photo. I've got a array of three 24" monitors and it looks really cool opened across all three monitors as one photo. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"

    OK. Game on!

    I'm curious about the non-lethal mousetraps. So it works and I now have an angry/scared mouse in a box - what am I going to do with that? I also live in London, so where is this wilderness that I am to release it, so that it lives out its days with its mouse friends? "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  19. Is that true? I'd love to get a chance to jump that. Any more info anywhere? "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  20. Watching the news, the one item that works great are their outdoor microphones - they've definitely got that tech sorted. The reporters may be barely able to stand against the wind, but you can hear them crystal clear. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  21. Watching the weather (NC & SC areas for Hurricane Florence), it seems the public gets fixated on the Hurricane “Level” number and don’t really look into the details which can potentially be disastrous. I have friends that live in these coastal areas and been speaking with them on the phone. One contact noted “I’m on higher ground than “in town”, but I just looked at the elevation map and town is 6ft elevation; he’s only 8ft. He’s 75 so I’m certain he’s not ever checked this on the internet. Being a pilot and yachtsman, I’ve studied weather for years, but note now that even though we have the best available resources, models and methods to disseminate the information – we’ve “dumbed” it down. I’m watching this on television now and there is not a single mention of the air pressure. With silly descriptions like “heat index” and “wind chill”, the mainstream weather reports today just simply about “do I need a jacket or umbrella today”. I hope that those that think a category 1 or 2 hurricane is nothing to really be concerned about, don’t find the contrary. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  22. Seems I was born on a good month: http://playmate.uw.hu/html/6612.html "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  23. No, I think you'll find Britain got the Industrial Revolution started. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  24. I see the Trump Organisation’s CFO was granted immunity today. Along with the National Enquirer’s head. The Trump CEO has been in the Trump Org since the 1970’s; so can surely provide some good info. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
  25. We're OK with the rest of the world misspelling or mispronouncing English words, but we expect that others at least use the correct word. "Pain is the best instructor, but no one wants to attend his classes"
