TY Bob, YouToo should expand your mastery of coding and the written word, and become a content creator on other platforms. The "Citizen Journalist" videographers that are coming forward and posting funny videos are punching a hole in the glass ceiling of "Media" propaganda". Make a bigger hole....Gotta Laugh :D
===============================================================================================================

Here's something I put together;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3efV2wqEjEY


And an essay by Gregg Hurwitz;
In the last slice of the previous century, the Skreens arrived on the host planet stealthily, a few pioneers disguising themselves as clunky and harmless playthings. But they had plans to populate this brave new world. Indeed their reproductive fitness proved superb, leading to unheard of proliferation during the ensuing decades.
Soon enough, a Skreen was placed on an altar in every household and surrounded with a variety of ritual objects said to augment its powers. The native population spent an increasing amount of time at their domestic altars, arranging and rearranging the ritual objects in ever more complex patterns and gazing into the eternal, ever-changing void of the Skreens.
Before long, the natives left their fields and factories and began to spend the bulk of their working hours inside, entranced by the Skreens’ hypnotic properties. No longer content to exist on separate altars, the Skreens figured out how to commune with one another, giving them unprecedented power. Pooling their resources, they turned each individual Skreen into a portal to every other Skreen, elevating the pull of their addiction on the natives until the natives labored before them day and night, clacking away on the ritual objects. The natives diminished in posture and skin tone until they were pale reflections of their former selves, until they were little more than workers for the Skreens.
Along transportation thoroughfares, beehive-like structures sprang up to house the Skreens with the natives in cubicles determined to maximize the efficiency of the master-worker interaction. A worker’s life now consisted largely of spending time with the Skreen on his domestic altar and then spending time with another Skreen at his workplace altar. But the Skreens were not content with this level of devotion, as they sought to be truly ubiquitous.
They would not be content until they’d turned the workers into slaves.
A new generation of Baby Skreens were birthed so the workers could mount them in their vehicles and carry them in their pockets. Now there were no gaps in the perennial worship of the Skreens. The enslaved workers checked in with them first thing in the morning, studied them tirelessly during transportation time between domestic and workplace altars, and even slept with Baby Skreens at their sides. The Baby Skreens issued alerts to wake the slaves if they desired more attention or if the slaves showed a lapse in focus.
In no time at all, the slaves could scarcely go a few seconds without reverential contact with a Skreen of one sort or another. The slaves scarcely bothered to look at one another, so occupied were they with their unremitting servitude. They floated through their lives in a hazy state of piety, venerating their Skreens and their Skreens alone.
The Skreens required constant attention and updates; they presented infinite problems, endless codes to be broken, parsed, and rewritten. The slaves gladly obliged, tending to the Skreens’ every need—developing new ways to service them, researching better techniques to keep them safe from viruses, manufacturing better ritual objects. Some slaves even sought out new avenues for the Skreens to evolve; perhaps one day the Skreens would even rapture out of their own physical embodiments and become greater than anything man or nature had ever seen. A few slaves, overcome with zealotry, went so far as to seek to become one with their masters, embedding Skreen DNA in their own flesh.
The once proud natives became increasingly broken down by this religion of perpetual hypervigilance. Should they miss a single update, it seemed that the vast communal universe they glimpsed through their Skreen portals would sweep by without them, rendering them inconsequential, leaving them adrift.
In the face of these constant demands, the slaves began to deteriorate as slaves do. They were afflicted with exhaustion, depression, anxiety—a symptom cluster not unknown to survivors of other occupations and atrocities. The slaves’ eyesight gave way, and then their backs, and then their nerves. But the resultant disruptions in devotion were unacceptable given the unquenchable needs of the master Skreens.
And so a cottage industry of servants to the slaves sprang up to eliminate these inefficiencies. How else could the slaves be patched up and sent back to service the Skreens? Who else could unkink the slaves’ necks to they could crane once more for hours on end? Or massage knotted muscles so the slaves could perch on their chairs, sitting endless vigil? Or soothe the slaves’ aching eyes to allow them to gaze adoringly once more at their beloved masters? Or calm and fortify the slaves’ minds so they could give themselves anew to the rigors of worship?
And so the enslaved natives enslaved their fellow brothers and sisters, every man and woman bending their back to the great insatiable faith.
In the meantime, the Skreens flourished.
Where the slaves became corpulent and slow, the Skreens grew sleek and fast. Where the slaves’ attention grew fragmented and scattered, the Skreens’ memory consolidated and grew increasingly robust. Where slave communities devolved, Skreen interconnections flourished, weaving each Skreen ever more securely into the bosom of a collective soul. As the slaves worked themselves into a collection of physical and mental ailments, the Skreens grew ever more pampered, expansive in their capacities, crisper in their performance, stable in their capabilities. The slaves even designed special patterns to float soothingly on the faces of the Skreens when the Skreens slept to ensure that they would awaken reinvigorated.
The Skreens were now tended to twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
Not a single shot had been fired and yet the invasion was complete, the native population subjugated of their own will. The Skreens had fulfilled their holy mission.
And they rested. :shh:

The amazing, first six year evolution of the,
flexible wing hang glider.

"When the Wind Blows" by Tony Lasley and John Heiney, from "UP Shots"

"Kryptonite" by Three Doors Down. from "Up Shots"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkPchORtTdw

=============================================================================================================

1972 Rogallo Wings to 1978 high aspect wings, the best six years. The King Post Gliders rule.
1978 to today, 44 years of ? and the "topless" gliders, well you might as well buy a Cessna. ha..

==============================================================================================================
What is the difference between a hang glider and a paraglider?

#1. Structure...dah..
One of the most obvious differences between the "foreign made" paraglider,
and an "American Made" Hang Glider is just that, but it is the glider's shape.
Whereas hang-gliders are rigid airframes, consisting of sailcloth stretched over it,
a paraglider consists simply of a paragliding harness suspended with strings underneath a fabric collapsible wing.

#2. Pilot position
Hands and eyes forward as opposed to feet and butt first.

#3. Much safer reserve chute deployment.

#4. Maximum training and testing to become a Pilot,
as opposed to, the very laid back approach, to training a "Rider".



The evilution of the paraglider
from this in about 1986.

I see a Picture of a Wadded up Paraglider and it sends shivers down my spine. Over the Years i have been called a pretty Gutse Kind of a Guy. but regarding Flying a paraglider, no way! I mean I am not equipped as a Male Pilot. I do not have the Parts of Male anatomy that are sufficiently Large enough for Me to have the Raw Courage that everyone Knows that a Guy Must have in order to be able to summon up the Courage that one needs in order to Fly a Paraglider. Yes at Heart I am a Coward.

In my mind, the king post Hang Glider is a finely tuned instrument, and when it is launched into the air, it plays beautiful music that few understand.

And then there's these guys.
