  1. Hey Justin! That Niagara tunnel will never be completed. It's funding has been cut and it's construction completely halted. It was to be a blower anyhow (fans below) My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  2. So I hear! Hey, how many skydivers are in Quebec? Does anyone know where I can find a reliable number? N My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  3. That tunnel will never come. The funding was cut. It was a blower anyway (fans on the bottom) and would never have amounted to anything near equal a skyventure tunnel. My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  4. Don't kid yourself. The remaining senses of a blind person are often stronger. She wasn't deaf... and your outfit is loud! My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  5. A beagle you say? Well, it's that time of year. What's it like where you live? Is it city or more rural? It's the hunting dog in him. A beagle will do anything to get out of the house when this feeling strikes him/her. It'll join up with a pack of other dogs, and can end up MILES away from home. A lot of the time they come back, sometimes they don't. There might not be much you can do other then protect your valuables and be VERY watchful of him when he is outdoors.

  6. Also, if you are going to be laying cement, I'd be sure to be adequatly protected. That sh*t is corrosif even! My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  7. Unfortunate. Sorry about your misfortune. Do NOT pop the blister. Resist the temptation as it grows. The longer you can keep it in tact, the better your chances you will heal without scar. The skin below it is not developped yet and will do so under the fluids which will keep it moist and feed it. (gross) Get some Vitamin E pills -the capsules with actual gel in 'em. Break them and apply the gel. You can't use too much here. If you can find a nice healthy Aloe plant, break off an arm and squeeze out the aloe gel. Use this instead or in addition to. Resist the temptation, no matter how annoying it is, to touch it or play with it. and lastly, Do not keep going to the mirror to look at it; try not to look at it at all actually. Visualise it healing back to beautiful, fresh, unmarked skin. Visualise it as intensely as you do your dirt-dives... it helps!! Good luck, I hope you heal fast!
  8. I voted "other" ...because they call me the Jack-Hammer baby! Duh-duh-duh-duh-DONE! My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  9. I understand, yoink. The original post said it was an easy task and I've seen someone do it before. If it were "easy", I'd say go for it. However, you are absolutely right about entanglement issues and I would never advise struggling for it. Nick My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  10. HA-HAAAA! Jen! I remember that! I landed out that night too... but not nearly as far as the marina. I got out, did my freefall thing and deployed. I remember shouting a couple times to make sure there was not invisible traffic. Then hearing someone shout back. I had this eerie feeling that I was about to have a head-on with another canopy. 6th sense-style. I grabbed a front riser and did one full diving 360. Looking upwards thereafter, sure enough, I saw the silhouette of another canopy whiz by overhead in the other direction. WHOA!!! That was close... now, if he was going that way... and I'm going this way... urm... where is the DZ? Yup, I had lost track. Looked ahead and all around. Turned myself around in the harness (so as not to waste more altitude in a turn until I had my bearings) and looked directly behind me. Did you all catch what I missed? ..directly below me. Of course, it was far too late by the time I figure it out. Landed three fields away. I remember thinking I was going to bust a leg because the "texture" of the field, I could hardly determine. Started walking back and was picked up by an old couple in a mini van. I must have looked pretty weird walking down the road in the middle of the night, goggles and helmet, floppy jumpsuit, covered in broken glowstick juice, canopy slung over the shoulder. "Are you heading to that Skydive place?" they asked. "There's a skydive place around here??" I answered. My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  11. Oh, okay then, forget what I said. lol (for the record, I have seen someone deploy with their left hand with ease... yes, on a normal right handed BOC) My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  12. You did good. Don't knock your flare because all it did was what it was supposed to
  13. You show you've done a little homework by stating that you know of different systems. Honnestly, you'll get 6 of one half-dozen of the other responses here. If you know of the different systems, I say: "To each their own." Take the one that sounds optimal for YOU... because it will be. nick My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  14. lol That's what I was going to say. Nevermind saving money, you'll be making money!!! My Karma ran over my Dogma!!!
  15. I understand that scissors can beat paper, and I get how rock can beat scissors, but there's no f*ing way paper can beat rock. Paper is supposed to magically "wrap around" rock, rendering it immobile? Why the hell can't paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors, why can't paper do this to people? Why aren't sheets of notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they attempt to take notes in class? I'll tell you why-- BECAUSE PAPER CAN'T BEAT ANYBODY! A rock would tear that sh*t up in 2 seconds. When I play rock/paper/scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper, I punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say, "Oh shit, I'm sorry. I thought paper would protect you, asshole."
