Any skydivers here?
Posted: 7/19/2017 2:20:44 PM
Just finished my Cat B in AFF this past Sunday and going to knock out C I & II this Saturday. I'm pee'd at myself for waiting for so long to get in to the sport. I'm addicted. Had an "oh crap" moment on each jump. Botched my exit on the first jump and tumbled and flipped. Got it together by 9K and was able to pull at 55oo. Haunted me for a week. Went back two weeks later and had a great jump with the exception of a burble. Did my three count and nothing was going on. Turned to look up and see if my pilot chute was out and BOOM! I was almost able to land without assistance until I got a message that I was leaving the holding area too soon even though my altimeter was reading 1K. And I landed on my feet. Can't wait until Saturday.

What is wrong with people who don't like pizza crust? It's the best part of the pizza! Why would pizza be made over and over with a crust if it wasn't enjoyable? I just ate a pizza and there are three slices left with no crust. Suck it Trebek!

E-Cigs are the scourge of the land.
Posted: 1/28/2015 7:49:56 PM
I smoked cigarettes for 25 years and there was the usual hate of them by the public. I never really felt it. I stopped smoking cigarettes on New Years and switched to vaping. Holy crap! The vitriol against e-cigs! I don't get it. Why is everyone against it?

Power tools! GRUNT!
Posted: 1/9/2014 4:45:57 PM
I live in an apartment and have no access to super awesome power tools. I'm looking at two cordless drill systems.... Craftsman Bolt-On and Black & Decker Matrix. Anyone have any experience with either? I get mixed results with using The Google.

Bought a new set of wheels for my bike.They're painted and they squeal like crazy.I've been dragging the brake pads and ran some 1000 grit sandpaper over the braking surface yet they still squeal.Any suggestions?

Who You Attract vs Who You're Attracted To
Posted: 4/1/2011 3:13:24 PM
I always attract bartenders,military women,biker chicks,roller derby women and women I see with their personal ad posted in Post Offices.

I'm attracted to nerds...librarians,nuns,huge glasses and homemade floral dresses to their ankles.

Why guys don't dance.
Posted: 4/1/2011 3:05:43 PM
Well,we can dance if we want to,we can leave your friends behind.
Because your friends don't dance and if they don't dance.
Well they're no friends of mine.

Is Being Single Good or Bad?
Posted: 1/7/2011 2:31:03 PM

IMO,if you can't be happy being with yourself,you'll never be happy with someone else.

What Should a Man Smell Like ?
Posted: 1/7/2011 2:24:22 PM
I must be weird.I can't remember the last time I could smell myself as I bathe regularly,but if I could smell myself I would drop everything I'm doing and run to the shower.There's no chance in heck that I would go around stinking and feeling uncomfortable to attract a woman.

does anyone have an I-pad?
Posted: 9/6/2010 1:11:38 PM
I have one.It makes a great companion to my DSLR.I bought an adapter for 30 bucks that comes with a memory card reader and a USB connector.Helps bunches with fine tuning my camera settings seeing the photos on a larger screen than my cameras tiny little LCD.I also subscribe to video podcasts and TV shows.It can play Flash if you jailbreak it.I have an iPhone and an app called Bluecam that uses my iPhone as a camera for my iPad.I have the WiFi only version and it pulls up websites in the blink of an eye.

I would hold out on buying one.There is about to be a slew of Android and Windows 7 tablets coming to the market in the next couple months.My iPad does what I want it to do.Shop for what YOU want a tablet to do.Don't listen to people who argue about which product is best,99% of the time they have never set eye on the product they bash.

Lastly....Angry Birds in full screen.

Could you exist today without a CELL phone????
Posted: 7/10/2010 9:00:19 PM
I have an iPhone.I probably use the phone part of it 10 minutes in a month.It's pretty much a portable computer for me....internet,email,GPS,taking pictures/video,music,games,etc...

I could live without it,but it definitely makes life a whole lot easier :)

Is Beer a Lifesaver?
Posted: 5/22/2010 11:28:46 AM
"Well you see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo and when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive drinking of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

How to explain that you aren't into texting?

99.9% of conversation is filler.

Is it really possible to just be yourself on a blind date?
Posted: 5/21/2010 3:35:58 PM
Chris Rock did a bit on this,"You're not meeting that person,you're meeting their representative."

I personally could care less about what they say,I pick up on their actions,i.e. how they talk to the waiter/waitress,table manners,cell phone douchebaggery,and other little mishaps.

Why not just be yourself? It's all gonna come out later if you hit it off.

Anyone planning to buy this new Ipad.
Posted: 5/4/2010 2:23:35 PM
I'll be buying one.More of a luxury than an actual necessity.I have 3 laptops so all my serious computing needs are already met.It will be more of a radio/podcast and movie/tv show viewer when I'm camped out at the local coffee store.

I also have the newest jailbreak for my iPhone,so I can tether the Wi-Fi and save a few hundred

Wait,isn't this a Seinfeld episode where Elaine get's the idea for 'Top of the Muffin'

I have 3 dumpsters I make my rounds on every morning near where I work...Radio Shack,ABC store(Virginia liquor stores),and a pricey bike shop.I've probably found thousands of dollars of new stuff....brand new cell phones,carbon fiber bike frame,unopened Remy Martin,etc....

I couldn't do the food thing though.There is also a Dunkin Donuts in the same area that throws out trash bags full of donuts that are only a day old.If I were homeless,then yeah I'd be all over some donuts.

Bikers...Why they don't wave back to you
Posted: 4/1/2010 4:26:57 PM
For the record,I wave to anyone who waves to me first


Top Ten Reasons Why Harley Riders Don't Wave Back

10. Afraid it will invalidate warranty
9. Leather and studs make it too heavy to raise arm
8. Refuse to wave to anyone whose bike is already paid for
7. Afraid to let go of handlebars because they might vibrate off
6. Rushing wind would blow scabs off the new tattoos
5. Angry because just took out second mortgage to pay luxury tax on new Harley
4. Just discovered the fine print in owner's manual and realized H-D is partially owned by Honda
3. Can't tell if other riders are waving or just reaching to cover their ears like everyone else
2. Remembers the last time a Harley rider waved back, he impaled his hand on spiked helmet
1. They're too tired from spending hours polishing all that chrome to lift their arms.

Top Ten Reasons Why Gold Wing Riders Riders Don't Wave Back

10. Wasn't sure whether other rider was waving or making an obscene gesture

7. Reflection from etched windshield momentarily blinded him
6. The espresso machine just finished
5. Was actually asleep when other rider waved

2. It's too hard to do one-handed stoppies
1. They were too busy slipping their flip-flop back on

Top Ten Reasons Why BMW Riders Riders Don't Wave Back

6. Too busy programming the GPS, monitoring radar, listening to iPod, XM, and talking on the cell phone.
5. He's an Iron Butt rider and you're not!
4. Wires from Gerbings is too short.
3. You're not riding the "right kind" of BMW.
2. You haven't been properly introduced.
1. Afraid it will be misinterpreted as a friendly gesture.

Fav Hockey team/Player
Posted: 3/30/2010 12:15:16 PM
It's great to see stars play their first games and watch them over the years.I've had season tickets to the Caps for about 7 years now.I've got to see OV,Backstrom,Green,and Varly from their first games.Too early to say about Varly,but to actually see future hall-of-famers from the start like Jordan,Bird,Tyson,or other players from other sports is a privilege.

Before the new era Caps,Kolzig was my favorite.Sucked how he spent his whole career with the Caps and his career ended the way it did.

Outside of the Caps,I love St Louis and I may be the only one who does,but Avery. :P

He does everything FOR ME.
Posted: 3/30/2010 12:05:13 PM
At first I was gonna say you're being a selfish douche,but then I rethought it. I like to do a lot of stuff for women I date or are friends with. I actually like to clean other people's homes more than my own. Don't get me started on landscaping,I can spend all day out hooking up the yard as I've never had one.Also love to fix stuff.I do this stuff more for myself than the person I'm doing it for. I never did it to get a thank you and would never throw it in someones face,but what I do is always appreciated

If he's doing it to gain leverage on you,that's wrong.If he's doing it out of the kindness of his heart to help you out,you should appreciate it.I've heard enough story's of women who complain about their men laying around the house contributing nothing.You should talk to him about it in a non-confrontational manner.If you approach him correctly,it could be a win-win situation for both of you.Let him know you appreciate the things he does but you like some independence for yourself.
