Slightly Angered

I used to work at McDonalds for almost 3 years. The goal for us was to provide a quick tasty meal for people on the go. It’s quite a convenience when you think about it. But for people like this guy to ruin it for everybody by claiming that he’s morbidly obese at the fault of fast food chains and not of his own is just rediculous. Quite honestly it just goes to show you that: More…

It’s All About Three Seconds, Part 2

One concern I have as an organizer is getting all twelve airplanes into the pre-determined aircraft formation. My concerns are soon alleviated at 16,500 feet when a nearly flawless formation begins to form. Watching the aircraft in such a precise flying formation and seeing the jumpers start to exit from the other planes is simply breathtaking. Never had I witnessed such an awesome display of human and mechanical flight. The first jump went quite well considering we just launched 300 people, out of 12 planes for the first time on American soil. The jump was a nice attempt and the level of talent is evident that this record is possible. More…
