  1. hey #2, I have a question for you.

    What would happen if DZ.com was shut down? Could you skydive anymore? Where would you go for help? Or have you pissed off ALL the knowledgeable at your DZ and are stuck resorting to the fucking internet for answers?

    I am just curious why you seem to be so against asking for help in person? You post these cockamamie things on here for what? To get a rise? I mean seriously, they aren't to get help for real are they?

    Who are ANY of us to demand how someone else is to run their business?

    So there is nothing to which you could ever possibly object about the way someone does business?
    Got it.

    Object all you want, I would personally just go somewhere else and let the guy hang himself (if anyone would be stupid enough to ban all the things you gave as an example).

    They also offered us a different option of paying for our level 1 and as long as we pass we can work for them for as long as we want!

    Whats wrong with this option? Seems like a win/win to me no? am i missing something?

    So, would all of you have equal praise for a DZO that banned wingsuits, banned CRW, banned hook turns, mandated AAD's, banned wing-loadings above 1.5, banned full-face helmets, and mandated RSL's, all in the name of safety?

    How far are you willing to go before you cry "foul"?

    If the DZO wants to put himself out of business thats his problem isn't it?

    Who are ANY of us to demand how someone else is to run their business?

  5. You're directing your anger at the wrong person. You act like the DZO just came one day and threw his arms up in the air and screamed "thats it! no more wingsuits!"

    Come on man think about if for a minute, yeah your bummed out, but instead of crying about it try to contribute to a solution.

    I can assure you calling him the worst DZO isn't going to do jack shit for you.

  6. So what discipline is next on the list? Does anyone else find it odd that wingsuiting is the next "target" in the name of "safety" before other, blatantly obvious disciplines?

    Why is a swoop course not on the radar? Not the next "hot thing" to cash in on?

    I mean seriously, what data points to the need at this time for a wingsuit instructor program over ANY other disciplines?

    This will get ignored I am sure.....

    Hey read the rest of what I put up.

    And I didn't bring up the dating the TI thing.
    Just ran with it for a giggle. Now don't get your panties in a twist.

    Smile a little. Hell life is too short to be this serious.

    You just dont get it do you.
    People do not want your viral keyboard dribble on every forum.
    This is a Topic specific forum not another place for you to stand on your soapbox and run your One Trick Pony Show.
    Please keep the shit that you spew in the BF, at least i know your posts are there and can reasonably avoid them.

    Hi squeak

    Salt water in the Adirondacks?
    God don't know if that's even possible.
    I mean you could argue that Lake Champlain is a bit salty....after all it has a monster in it. And well there are parts of the Hudson that are salty and glow in the dark....but body of water that is salty? I don't know of any off hand. But I'm sure with all the lakes up there, maybe there could be one that just so happened to be salty. That would be kind of cool!

    WTF are you talking about? You said you were upstate, having fun in salt water, with a rod, insinuating fishing???? I don't know, I was just curious about that statement, like 99% of your statements though, you can't make heads or tails of them.

    Hey in the winter when its snowing outise and you want to just go for a walk during lunch...wht do you do?
    Go to the mall if it's close to your job and walk around a little, get the blood lowing and lower your stress levels and smile a bit more.

    Yeah, if I were to do that would I walk around with my iPod in my ears, nope. Nothing like portraying the socially akward side of you like putting headphones on, staring at the ground and walking around with your hands in your pocket.

    there have been days I've had my ear buds in with my Ipod on shuffle just walking around the mall

    So you're that guy eh? I feel for you man, you need some friends and a slight attitude adjustment.

    Upstate NY GE.
    I think GE would be a nice fortune 500 company wouldn't you say?

    I was up there visiting family friends and there for some fun work. Amazing what you can do with salt water, a rod and some power and large hunks of steel!

    Can you tell me what body of salt water is in upstate NY?

    I don't know if i said it before but one day I was having a few drinks with someone from HR at a fortune 500 company.

    This never happened, I would bet any amount of money on that.

    If it were true, what is the significance of you stating that the person works for a fortune 500 company? Is that you trying to crowbar in that you hang out with important people?

    I have news for you, a fortune 500 company doesn't have HR put together or even understand the complexity of salaries and compensation. They have an entire department for that, called...compensation.

    You're a liar.

    I am not a troll, I am saying this in all honesty and don't care if I get laughs or not, what a concept.

    Shah, you trying to be an ambassador for our sport is probably the second worst development for skydiving since Skyride. :S Why don't you stick to trashing female engineering students and your other various misogynistic bullshit on the non-skydiving parts of the forum!

    This isn't speakers corner, or the bonfire, can you please keep your crap over there and stop trying to "inform" people when you still have so far to go yourself.

    Work Permit here in China is issued by the Labor and Social Security Department

    Please for the love of god don't give them your SSN.

    I would call whoever your governing body is for your passport too, might be safe to get a new one. Just my .02

    Well...if they have his passport #, and a buddy at the airport ~they prolly already HAVE the SSN.

    Can you explain this please? I have only taken 1 international flight, a bunch of domestic, and I have never given my SSN to the airlines. Is there something I don't know about?

    This shows you still don't know much or understand canopy flight. .

    You may want to re-think your post in light of the event in question happened on his jump 35...two years ago.

    But he is saying this NOW, as in he thinks this presently.

    3 years of hanging around the DZ and you still think that hanging on the fronts of ANY canopy won't change the way it flies? How do you say it, oh yeah, time for bowling.

  17. been covered a bunch of times.

    If you dont have saddle bags big enough, get a gear bag and use that. Dont ever ride with just the rig on your back with no gear bag for obvious reasons.

    There is a story of some guy doing 80 down the road and wanted to see what would happen if he pulled his rip-cord (pre BOC days). Not a good scenario...

    I was on a student rig so no matter what you did the fronts were not going to do much.

    This shows you still don't know much or understand canopy flight. When you change the glide angle by pulling on fronts, you WILL change the way a canopy flies.

    By your logic, a flare shouldn't work either on a student rig.

    I actually think you might be a troll.

    i used some thermals from a road to make it a few ft

    explain this please, you had the wherewithall to use thermals but sat there with the wind in your face pulling on your rears to get back?

    Then I notice you are on a canopy loaded 1.1:1 with averaging 20 jumps a year?

    Please talk to someone where you jump, the internet is NOT what you need right now.

  20. I also wonder if it would be better to take it a little low before deploying giving the woman a shorter time to have to hang on if she didnt fall out of the harness. I am not sure what thoughts were going through this "TI"'s mind, let's be honest that is one effed up situation to find yourself in.

    I still am baffled how she stayed in on deployment, really the whole god damn even baffles me.
