8-year-old learns to drive on YouTube, heads to McDonald's
Ha! That's hilarious.
I wonder why both parents were totally zonked while their young kids were still up. Even if they nodded-off while watching TV, you'd think the sound of the kids leaving and starting up the car would wake them.
if an 8 year old is going to go driving mcdonalds seems like an appropriate destination.

Kaziranga film: BBC banned for 5 years from all national parks, sanctuaries | The Indian Express
so apparently the forest rangers in india have bond style licenses to kill. i guess the bbc didn't like that and now they are banned. i'm all about making poachers have to worry they might get shot if they try to kill a tiger or rhino.
apparently cylons are real now.

Eff the poachers. At least they can shoot back.

a lot of times i read stories where someone gets a million dollar payout in some suit and i think that i wish that happened to me. this is not one of them. 760k is not work the injuries/fear this girl must have gone through.
Texas teen gets payout from parachuting accident lawsuit | Daily Mail Online
It isn't clear from the article if she really got paid. Winning a lawsuit and getting paid are not the same thing.
I have a problem with the dad's statement that the government shouldn't have allowed her to do that kind of jump. He's the one who drove her to Oklahoma. Why did he allow her to do that kind of jump?
That was how I jumped when I skydived. (Skydove?)
It was about 5 hours of class from a former army jump instructor and static line.
On my first jump, the lines twisted. They radioed me and told me to kick my feet and twist just like they taught in class. It came untwisted soon enough. They certainly taught us how to ditch the first chute (cut away by pulling the right handle) in class.
Fortunately I didn't need to cut away. That would have sucked.
We went back and jumped again several months later.
No plans to do that again.
The dad is a moron for letting his 16 year old kid jump.
Every 3 minutes they tell you that you can die from equipment failure, mistakes, acts of God, or just because. The waiver that you sign is also very clear.
I thought it was pretty standard now to start with tandem jumps?
It's an option at a lot of places.
You don't need to go through as much training before you jump.
Personally, the idea of having a crazy man strapped to my back is more frightening than the prospects of stepping out of a perfectly good airplane.
Static line is pretty good. You get the rush, the panic, and the ability to scream like a little girl without having to share with anyone else. The radio in the helmet is one way, so they can talk to you, but can't hear you. Fun fact: the place that I jumped was close to a McDonald's, and sometimes you could hear people order Big Mac's from the drive thru.
I jumped twice by static line. They tried to convince me that I needed to start working on free fall.
I had no desire to be responsible for pulling my own rip cord. (In public at least....)
I want another guys junk pressed against my ass while we jump out of a plane
Yet another New England Patriot getting away with murder (the expression but in this case also the act).
