People usally don't mess with me. I weigh about 350 pounds, and built like a locomotive. I give them the Don't F$#k with me stare. Funny thing about it, is I detest violence. Get into their heads, it mightier than a 2X4.

It's against the law to be riding a bike without brakes on a public road. At least it is in every state I've been in.

And I flatly deny any relationship with that fr!

I am still trying to figure out how your transmitter wasn't damaged...
But ya, I encounter people with this mentality all the time. They are the idiots who stand there and say "crash it!"

A good flight often ends with a great crash.

Same here. With something like that the sticks usually get drove thru the case. Must have been some tall grass.

as pointed out before, some people is alive simply because its against the law to kill them.

unfortunately, if we havent been so "civilized", such guys would been extinct.
darwins theory works, as long as we allow it to work.

the good thing is, the police is ususally kind and looking the other direction, if you teach such morons a lesson. unfortunately, you cant pull it so far that they actually learn.

I recently moved from a town because the percentage of dirt bags to good human beings was way out of wack.

I can now fly at the park down the street with out fear of anything but getting distracted by people asking about the hobby.

So far only one crash landing due to me not wanting to be rude and ignore the elderly couple asking questions.

At the old flying field where I used to live I had my car broken into twice. and one time heard gunshots

You sound like me. I don't even bother to close the back door. Just the storm door, to keep critters out.

The idea of the cane is a good one. I am older now and require one due to a damaged left ankle. Older people are targeted by jerks thinking we are an easy hit. I would suggest you visit "Cane Masters" and purchase a combat cane as I have.
Even before my accident I have always carried a cane on my numerous trips to South America and it has served me well.

Dude... I would opened a major can o whoop on this guy! Knowing my luck the Tx and plane would be trashed, so I'd take it out of his .
It is really sad that this kind of person exists.

Glad to hear everything came out OK though.

Bikes do not count. How in the _ell are your going to use a bike as a weapon.
I have gotten a serious cane from "Cane Masters" google them. This thing is a serious weapon. I go no where without it. Since I spent 32 months in hospitals and rest/rehab homes for a shatter ankle I now wear Danner Boots/two colors and have had no problems with falls. In fact I just fall when I stepped on a _uc_ing tennis ball. I am going to kill my little neighbor who left it here.
Having these serious boots on allowed me to get up in 5 minutes instead 30 minutes of crawling on the floor trying to find something strong enough to grab onto to get my _ss off the floor. Hey for Danner and also Cane Master and the German hiking poles I use in the yard. The day I have to go to a wheelchair is the day I shallow my C__t ._5. Darn I need another beer. I have no wife, but I have a three legged cat that I have trained to open the frig. and roll the can to me. Top that if you can! The cat is NOT FOR SALE.

A three legged beer getting South Caroliny feline. Sounds like a good title for a bluengrass tune. As to not using the bike fora weapon...this is no ordinary bike...the hand grips deploy rapidly to reveal Bruce Lee signature num chucks. Also I am ex CIA..and can kill a man 6 different ways with a Ball Park Frank.

Default Hi kid, how old are you 10 or 12

Of course the thing about the cat is a joke. but the other is just how things were and will be.
Your response is a joke as well. No one who worked for the Agency would ever, ever admit it in a forum like this. How do I know this? No I did not work for that Agency and I am not about to tell you who I worked for if I did not know you would have no idea what I was talking about. my duties were in A_A, which by the way no longer exist. I had a TSC clearance. I lived on Homestead AFB and worked in a NSG installation with Navy, AF, Canadians and Army personal. The damn place was in a Mangrove Swamp and the bugs just about eat us up when we ran from our cars the 50 yards to the door where we had to wait with our badges under our chins until the Marine checked us out thru one way glass and buzzed us in one at a time. He was in a wire cage with a cocked .45 right there in front of him. After he checked us again he buzzed us in to a hall and we went to the room we worked in and punched a combination to get into the room we worked in. We could not get into the other rooms unless an E6 or above came and got us. There were only two doors in the place. the one with the guard and another that only opened if the fire alarm went off and the only window was right there with the guard. That was a 6 man team of Marines on duty at all times in the event anyone tried to come thru the Elephant fence. They would hit the roof of the 3 story builting and I promise NO ONE WOULD EVER get to the building. I got so tired of playing cards and battleship in those days that I went about nuts as did all the others. We were not supposed to read books, but we brought them in taped to out legs and passed them around. I served my country and I am proud of it. About the only thing you have done is play with 5 finger Mary. Little guys like you that make redicules claims make me ill. I service during the VN era, but not in N because I had enough brains to take a foriegn language from HS to College and the VC did not speak Spanish. Oh, by the way the chow WAS GREAT, the NAVY know how to dish it out. It cost me $1.50 to eat because I had housing on the base. No barracks for this guy. A nice two bed room duplex with a very pretty wife working her but off so we could have a boat to fish out of. the only problem was that I had to work trick shifts. Have a nice day.

Default My most humble apology(sp)

I am afraid I went off without cause. I, in my old age have a very short fuse.

I have sent the other party a private message telling him I am sorry.

Darn, I can not remember how to spell apology

I also ask his pardon in Latin and the guys who are not _ath_lic

deleted it. so here is it in English

Thru my fault, Thru my fault, Thru my most grevious fault.

Happy now guys.

I wish you had spell check that worked at fast.
