    Noob Cartoons: Skydiving Duck

    Hey, thanks. It's been pretty dull in Ducksville thanks to my career laying an egg. I don't think I even linked to my latest post when I published it because I was a bit embarrassed as to how things turned out, but hear it is, if anyone's curious as to why I fell off the radar: Now What? I still have my equipment and am doing tunnel practice to keep in shape, so I will jump again, dangnabit, but maybe not as soon as I'd like. My blog with the skydiving duck cartoons.

    Noob Cartoons: Skydiving Duck

    Thanks. Not long ago I was considering my options and "the problem is I'm stupid when it comes to clerical skills, math, or anything useful. I'm the kind of person who solves puzzles and comes up with ideas." Then I thought, "You come up with ideas? Good. How about coming up with some ideas about what you're going to do next?"

    So what picture got your team the Academy Awards? "Life of Pi" (Best visual effects). That's Bill Westenhofer (the Visual Effects Supervisor, to the left) and Erik-Jan de Boer (the Animation Director, to the right) They were the Big Kahunas. I was one of many Little Kahunas.

    Here's a new one but I'm still on the ground (thanks to work) and may be on the ground for longer than I like (thanks to lack of work). My blog with the skydiving duck cartoons.

    Rudeness and culture...

    Also I've noticed different cultures seem to have different boundaries as to how friendly and formal you're expected to be with others: eye contact, personal space, how direct (or indirect) you're expected to be, etc.. Thus people from some cultures seem aloof, while others seem "in your face." My blog with the skydiving duck cartoons.

    Beware the IKEA Effect

    "I'm the kind of guy..." Huh! So who is using the Duck's account? The schtick was I'd pose as a "guest blogger" who'd complain about his/her predicament. Some other examples: A vicious bully complaining he was being persecuted, a dog complaining about the mailman, the Sun complaining that nobody cared, a bigot insisting he wasn't a bigot, and so on.

    Beware the IKEA Effect

    I goofed on IKEA and the IKEA Effect a few years ago, before my "Skydiving Duck" days. My blog with the skydiving duck cartoons.

    Believe in ghosts?

    I wrote this elsewhere, years ago, but it more or less explains my opinion on most (if not all) supernatural stuff: My blog with the skydiving duck cartoons.

    A new Skydiving talk show would you listen?

    Sounds fun. I'd tune in! My blog with the skydiving duck cartoons.

    What Are Your Plans For New Year's Eve?

    Me? No plans. I'll probably curl up with a good book and go to sleep with earplugs so any midnight festivities won't wake me up.

    Noob Cartoons: Skydiving Duck

    Parachutist wanted to run the series as my journey from Tandem noob to A licence holder. It seemed reasonable to me- I figured my continuing schtick of duck-is-nervous-on-the-plane, duck-is-a-klutz, duck-slowly-makes-progress might be growing old (even if it was what how it happened). You can still see my continuing adventures on my blog- has gone semi-dark since I've been grounded (till spring) thanks to my ridiculous accident. Still, it's nice to know I'll be missed. Thanks!

    Organ and Tissue Donation

    Same here. Better to donate a few parts to someone else, since the alternative is donating them to "lunch" for bugs and microbes. My blog with the skydiving duck cartoons.
