  1. *sarcasm* Oh Kelly you have no clue what you are talking about, no jump numbres filled out, clearly you have no credibility. *end sarcasm*
  2. Well you would not be replying to me, you would be replying to someone who has "identified" himself. You clearly are deflecting, which is odd because I was actually just interested in your response, now I can see why.....
  3. The fact of the matter is the answer is a combonation of things that need to happen. 1. COMMON SENSE 2. Education 3. Mentoring 4. Peer policing/reccomendations for canopy changes/styles of flying. (and not some bullshit "yup, hes fine," It shoudl be an aggreement between more than one "peer" who truly give a shit to do the right thing.) This could come from some governing body, like the USPA, but more than likely it could start at the DZO level. Yes you will get a few idiots that will throw their hands up in the air, say its not fair, and threaten to go give their business elsewhere, but the normal SANE individuals will take this in a caring way. But there is also the plain old fact: Some people are too stupid, too cocky or just don't get it and never will. And for these people, the best thing you can do unfortunately (after speaking with them about the risks 1,000,000 times) is just stay out of their way, warn people about them, and let nature take its course.
  4. You share the same opinion with MANY broken and dead people, doesn't make it right. To the OP, talk to local people that you jump with about where you want to be and take their guidance.
  5. really.......?? a baby?? Tell me you're standing on the ground. I mean come the hell on, DHS would have a field day with that one.
  6. Though it was a free for all in the Bonfire, my bad.
  7. I can't imagine what its like to be such a narcissistic lunatic. Seriously, how does that happen?? Nearly EVERY post you make is down right mind blowing, AND you wonder why you're single? Dude, you are in serious need of a reality check, do you talk to a shrink? If not, find one ASAP!
  8. Bill, awefully nice offer there. This guy is too proud to in any way admit he has been or is wrong. He would rather risk joining Sangi (or worse) rather than be a grownup and count his blessings now and smarten up. Don't waste your resources on him, he's a joke.
  9. I just watched this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7YXp0e2ZR8 I don't know what is standard for 1 armed jumpers but that was kinda scary.
  10. Well it seems like your attitude has changed, we dont know how or why you learned your lesson (unless I missed it somewhere) because you wont share. You are one of the people that learn luckily before you end up like Sangi. VB you next?? come on everybody is doing it "skybrother"
  11. I never thought I'd see the day. DocPop giving virgin-burner canopy lessons in a Sangi crash thread. What a coincidence! Seriously, all 3 of you are the cool ones, WERE ALL THE IDIOTS. Case in point right here, and VB how dare you give anyone crap about ruining your thread, thats all you do on here.
  12. Whats a MARD then? Is that not what all these devices are?
  13. Yes I meant to put "pull reserve, deal with 2 out potential" but I couldnt edit the poll, sorry bout that.
  14. You find yourself after unbeknownst to you, you were knocked unconcious and are under a damaged/malfuctioning main at 800'. (pick an option, ripped topskin, lineover, broken lines, slow spinner, something that causes it not to be fully controllable, but not a streamer) I know its vague and depends on the mal/damage, but still, what do you do?
  15. what part of the "harness" are you talking about? Most would take that as the actual harness, but are you talking more of the closing flaps and material of the container??
  16. is this you by chance? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha-l2qCbFms
  17. I'm assuming this never happened? If not, why? really curious to see what happens.
  18. the dude probably "lost" it on purpose. I feel like doing that a lot
  19. Yeah, you know Pops, the abusive slandering individual. WOW, you truly are a nutjob.
  20. I completely respect your view, experience, and opinion. However, do you think a) a practice flare/controlability check would reveal that the canopy (come to find out) was not performing to standards? and b) if it did pass, how can one predict the condition will not change when they are too low to take apporpriate action?
