  1. You disagree with the new canopy piloting portion of the licensing system? Which part is new? Looking here at 3.1.E for an A license, it doesn't look like anything has changed: http://www.uspa.org/SIM/Read/Section3/tabid/165/Default.aspx I'm about to send in my paperwork to obtain the A license; is there something I'd be missing besides the Proficiency card and USPA membership application?
  2. What do you mean, "you people?"
  3. History has shown that you cannot spell big nor small words. You realize he's posting in a foreign-to-him language, don't you? BTW, that's big OR small words. Grammar and all. actually nor would be more appropriate since the second part is also negative. just to be a grammar nazi Papers, please. "Nor" would be appropriate if you said "neither big nor small words". But without the "neither", it must be "or", not "nor". In the alternative, one could say, "you cannot spell big words, nor can you spell small words". There is also the "either-or / neither-nor" distinction, which includes implied words. Thus the sentence violates that rule, too. Since the offending sentence implies the word "either", and not "neither" (and implied words count in grammar), the proper coordinate conjunction is "or", not "nor". Using 'nor' was correct, if theonlyski meant to say that shah could not spell big words, and cannot spell small words. "Nor" is inclusive, meaning both cases are what shah cannot spell. "Or" is exclusive, meaning one or the other. The "rule" lies in the meaning of the word. If theonlyski meant to say that shah cannot spell big words, or cannot spell small words, one or the other, then 'or' would be correct. From context, it seems as though theonlyski meant to say that shah could spell neither one. If this was the case, 'nor' is the appropriate word to use. *shooting star* The more you know...
  4. She sounds all cute and innocent, but nobody noticed the bombs in her aircraft that she planned to use for assassination.

  6. Fuck that. I'll take a good ass-pounding over a bj any day.
  7. Which post gave you that idea? I guess I'm not that great at reading into things that aren't really there. Maybe that will also come with experience? As for the OP, I would love to start swooping when I get plenty of experience. Watching people skimming across ponds is just plain exciting to see; I can only imagine what it's like to be the one doing it.
  8. Oddly enough, street price of my favorite drugs just went down. Supply and demand and all...
  9. I'm willing to bet the web traffic filters were in place far before you started having trouble printing. They only take a minute to set up anyway. Changing them to allow people searching crazy bitches, however, would take away from the real problem; printing. Speaking of, why are you printing anyway? We have PDFs now. The last 2 offices I worked at have been paperless offices, and we did great. Why not start talking to your bosses about going paperless instead? Take the printers (which are a common item to fail in an office environment) out of the equation altogether.
  10. I'm still too new to be able to help much, but watching videos / movies is part of how I learned many maneuvers in snowboarding, inline skating, mountain biking, etc. When I started inline skating, I would watch other skaters in skating movies perform certain maneuvers over and over again, seeing which parts of their body were positioned over a rail and how far, watching their body twist, seeing which parts turned first and how hard they were pushing. Same with snowboarding and mountain biking. For some reason, watching and studying others who were much better than me made me learn things SO much faster. Again, I'm so new to skydiving that I'm not sure it will help me as much as other sports, but I haven't exactly watched many skydiving videos either. I've been sticking to talking to other skydivers at my drop zone and asking them to show me how they do it on the practice table. If I had the opportunity to ask those people in the videos to show me in person what to do, it would be far more helpful than just watching their videos. Couldn't hurt though.
  11. You seem to have pretty good credentials. There's a write-up of you on a company's website, and you weren't very difficult to find through Google, so you at least have a few records outside of a resume that speak of patents you have written and such. You also share a name with a lead developer of an extremely popular video game, so your name has some competition there, yet you still pull up pretty easily by searching your name and the state you live in. Google yourself and see what pulls up easiest. Elaborate on these on your resume, and this will help validate your experience. Once you have doctored your resume, search for recruiters in your area in the field you want to work in. A recruiter will not see your credentials, take into consideration that you no longer want to do what you do now, and help you find a job unrelated to your experience. They will send you offers for jobs that match your experience, so it will probably be best just to get in touch with them and see what jobs they have available through their website. I would advise you to know exactly what you want to do, and tailor your resume to fit that job description. Going through a recruiting agency sucks. You end up with job offers that you don't want, and you may get stuck with either only temp jobs, or having your pay based on what the recruiting agency makes off of you; not what you are worth. Really think about that before you jump into that boat. (Apologies in advance for finding your personal information online. It was mostly a test to see how well-known you are in your field. You shouldn't be surprised though; this is the information age, and you already shared enough personal information here to make my search easy. And, well, I'm good at this shit. )
  12. To help you out, I was going to host a proxy on my site that would direct the results to a "bitches be crazy" search and see if it would get past your filter. Problem is, there was really nothing interesting coming back from the result. Here are the best results from the first page of a standard Google search, and a Google Image search: Image: http://profile.ak.fbcdn.net/hprofile-ak-snc4/41577_10150160635640006_7100851_n.jpg (may or may not work, being as it's on facebook's image hosting) Website: http://bitchesiscrazy.biz/bic/ Hope this helps! EDIT: Oh, and the obligatory NSFW pic. Must have forgotten being as boobs don't catch my eye. http://bitches.co.nz/images/20110208183330_bitch_u_crazy.jpg
  13. If you'd quit breaking the server, your email would still be working. Did you try restarting your computer 3 times? The problem is probably all the "crazy naked bitches" searches you're running. See, the Internet is a series of tubes...
  14. One less burglar off the streets, and one less murderer working in a pharmacy. Seems fair to me. Just too bad someone had to die.
