I’ve flown my paraglider at over 1000m AGL, not a twitch. I’ve had disco leg on a 20m ‘cliff.’ No idea why... control of the situation, maybe?
The latest naval gazing over half a dozen Grand Prix drivers not ‘taking the knee’. Good on them I say. What isn’t being discussed in detail is that every one of them were wearing t-shirts clearly showing their abhorrence of racism. Predictably, arch hypocrite Lewis Hamilton accuses them of ‘disrespect’.
Whatever happened to freedom of choice? Bloody annoying all this BLM shite, particularly the Media’s stance, which doesn’t seem to allow counter discussion or analysis.
Little more irritating than a bunch of millionaires bending their knees to an organisation created to destroy them, the companies that pay their wages, and the very society that sustains their industry.They should get T- shirts made up with Black Billionaires Matter.

Not a pilot, but I was told at Airborne School that the towers we jumped out of during tower week were 34 feet tall because above that height you became, as you put it, detached from ground mode.Seeing as it's 'this' thread, none of you dashing sky stallions will be too troubled if asked this irritatingly bone question......
At what height did one become 'detached' from ground mode (ie scared of heights etc.) to flying mode.... Aerodynamically Free as a bird sh*t..?
I used to ride in a flying pram at a mates farm..,I felt we needed to be
4-500 ft up before I could feel as if we should actually be airborne rather than bouncing along a cart track worrying about walls , wires and pylons..
He wouldn't even climb a bloody stepladder on the yard.
We had a ride in a hot air balloon in Spain early one morning, absolutely dead calm just went 1800ft straight up...
Scared shitless just remembering it, total silence and you were free to lean as far over the basket side as you dare...it really wasnt very pleasurable even with copious amounts of 'fizz' to excite/calm ones senses!
Pre lock down my wife and I were taken out for lunch with some friends.Their children came along.Son got his arse handed to him yesterday
him and kids round for lunch , Doris has her rules , and table manners are tops
young lad (7) chomping away with mouth open , elbows on the table , not using his knife to cut food just holding it on his fork ...she was getting really pissed off his dad says " lay off him mum , that's why he says he doesn't want to come round here
drags son out side " MY ******* HOUSE , MY ******* RULES!"
granddaughter raises her eyes at me , looking shocked , never heard granny say the F word ( heard me say it occasionally when I don't realise kids are around)
thing is , kids without good manners , especially at the table, really really piss us both off, as I have posted here before, and there is no excuse in my house. FFS my son lived here long enough to understand this
Then, when said children become teenagers, the parents wonder why they won't do what they are told.Pre lock down my wife and I were taken out for lunch with some friends.Their children came along.
Five minutes of good behaviour - then their kids went berserk.Running around screaming and shouting, knocking into other customers and the very pissed off staff. I asked if they could not control their own children? I was told that they do what they want at home, and they (the parents) "encourage freedom of expression"
We left five minutes later.Not heard from them since.
But if said scrote has called the copper mate, he would’ve said “I’m not your mate!”.Police officers who refer to crime-breaking chavs as mate. No wonder respect for them is dropping off the chart when they refer to everyone, even those they've caught in the act, as mate.
