Plummeting without trees
March 30, 2017
German plummeter travels to San Diego to practice plummeting without trees
http://www.10news.com/news/paraglider-hospitalized-after-lakeside-crash
A paraglider was critically injured Thursday in a solo crash on a remote, rocky hillside near Lakeside.
A witness saw the man plummeting toward the ground off Quail Canyon Road in Blossom Valley shortly before 2:30 p.m.
------------
Did this guy fly Torrey or did they deny him access?
Watch this site be closed to hang gliding.
BobK's favorite hang gliding site?

Remember this?

"San Diego is a great place to practice plummeting," says English plummeter. "I tell all my German plummeting friends to come here."

Strong thermals allow hang glider pilots to approach heaven without actually going there.
Hang gliders don't collapse. An airframe makes the difference.
So insteading of wishing, during our final moments, that we had had a hang glider - we actually have one for the entire flight!
How can worrying that you are going to die in turbulence be any fun?
We don't know.
We are hang glider pilots.

Paragarbage
No airframe and no aircraft and no pilot = paragarbage






I can't believe people fly this paragarbage!

Give me one of these. These are soooo cool!

Paragliding without paragliders
Post-concussion, pre-parapeligic paragliderless people painfully practice pernicious paraglider-like percussion poorly.

On some of these videos I hear people laughing as canopies collapse and sometimes crash. :srofl:

I FAIL TO SEE THE HUMOR! :(

Am I just being too serious? :?

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Start the first video with no volume.
2) Start Blue Oyster Cult at full volume. Rattle the walls. Wake the neighbors.
3) Enlarge first video to full screen.
4) Invite your friends. Drink whiskey or something.

After a while it will become clear to you: After the tears, comes laughter.
-----------------------
You can try reasoning with these guys... But they won't listen. You are not one of them.

After a while you will begin to realize you are not responsible. It's Darwinian.
It's natural selection. The collective IQ goes up when the deficient cull themselves from the herd.
It's their death wish. Not yours. It's their peer group. Not yours.
They delude themselves into thinking they are immortal and you and I are nothing but grumpy old men to them.
Perhaps there is also some darker, grimmer, fatalistic, nihilistic societal decay at work.
It's sad. So unnecessary. So incomprehensible. So...
Laughter helps. We have airframes. They don't.
They don't have aircraft when they die. Ha, ha!! What a bunch of nitwits.
You don't even have to explain this to the public. They already get it.
