    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    To paraphrase a pilot's saying:

    There are old kite-surfers, and there are bold kite-surfers. But there are no old AND bold kite-surfers.

    Stupid is as stupid does.

    Wow, bet he won't do that again, or walk or talk in complete sentences


    He paid the price for being stupid
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Guess he missed the meteorology part of his pilots' school. Oh wait, he missed pilots' school.

    Sorry, I know that probably hurt like hell, but it was sure funny to watch. What an idiot.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    That looked like a lot of fun...but maybe he should have let go after his first take off.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Maybe there IS something to that whole natural selection thing. I know any half witted numskull could have figured out that was a bad idea.

    Reminds me of the great Fifth Dimension song Up, Up And Away.

    I used to whitewater kayak. "Strapped in" like that, you get into some sketchy situations, at times. Can't hardly be avoided. But, leaving the ground is something else entirely. Never have done that, except via plane. I guess that's something. (Still here, Mom. Still standing.)

    Kite flying is as safe as parachuting, in each case it is only sudden stops that cause problems...oh, I bet that left some marks.

    I wonder if it started with, "Hey guys, watch this."
