I figure it's paragliding but with props behind you to keep you aloft. I've seen people with them, very cool. If I had the courage I'd do it.

Airsoft related for those still interested.

I bought some more airsoft sh@t. I am like a kid waiting on Xmas...I bought a WE GBBR HK-416(8) off ebay a few days ago and it's in transit. I got it for $600.10+$45 S/H CDN. The 9 extra mags alone are at least $400+. He also upgraded the trigger with a RA-Tech steel trigger, Falcon (?) hop up and tight bore inner barrel. He also replaced the stock grip and butt stock with HK ones. Included is a VFC PEQ 15 light/laser and some misc parts. All the stuff pictured is worth at least $1300+cdn new.


Bad is I hurt my back AGAIN. I only got in one game a month this summer. The down side is when I am idle I buy airsoft sh@t. I bought a lot of gear (real steel vests and many accessories) and some more guns. Added a all metal Sig P226, I had to have a "Navy SEAL" pistol...actually CDN JT2 and Brit SAS uses them also....rolleyes.gif

Its a hobby, its supposed to be about acquiring pointless ****...it gives our lives meaning smile.gif I do it too with some silly hobbies......1/6 scale stuff (Think GI Joes), but also I'm the first guy who will drop a grand on his PC just to keep the performance up, which is also quite silly........this is what life is about dude....embrace your discretionary spending smile.gif

But if your back is shot, ask about soma muscle relaxant...that and some large doses of Advil will hopefully fix you right up!

Changed the oil in several of my cars today. Had all of my cooler cars out, so I figured I would snap some pics. I got a new cell phone last month (Samsung Galaxy SIII) and I am shocked at how good the pics came out. Didn't even bother getting my digital camera out:

The cars are: 1970 GT 429 CJ
1968 GT with a '92 302 5.0L HO
2007 Noble M400 twin turbo Duratec 580ish crank HP

I remember an airsoft model of a Robocop gun that I had many years ago. But now, I'm into games, movies, trying out new restaurants, video editing and such. Someday I'll actually fix up my Youtube channel and add some new content.
