Arm extensions - Fail.
« on: October 04, 2019, 02:25:41 PM »
I was thinking...  If the TE tip hits the water; why not raise the wing?  ..for cleaner air, etc. ..like Talldude could do. Just add an extension from hand-to-handle?! 

I forgot I have a Humerus, Ulna, and Radius that keeps my arms from being noodles. It flys - but like a single-line kite needing a tail.  If I bust my ass on a slackline I know, fer-sur, stilts are not in my future.

Yikes. That's kind of the opposite of the pseudo boom idea.

Hmmm. I can tell my head is screwed on sideways because I tried to spell pseudo as sudo. Unix geeks will get that.

Amy from Peoria. When I just need a little trip to town, my new hand kite is truly a blessing.

Bill from Billings. When I-first got my hand kite I wasnít too shure. The instructions were very good and now I can do my whole paper route with one hand on the bike.... 8)

Bill,  'Still trying to figure out a way to initiate a deepwater start as I got from kites  ...if I was only head-and-hands above water.  I don't think it will happen.

Rider.  I guess I don't see enough standup acts. I sense you may have been mocking me, but you can speak directly if you have something to say. I am not 12.

Pono, if you're like me, you blow the syntax about half the time.

Check this and enjoy.

Search "GitHub the f&ck" and thank me later. (with the real profanity)

And for those of you not hip, it's "Super User Do" so don't let Pono make you look like a noob pronouncing it like Pseudo. ;)

Geez, Rider, get a grip. Normally I just ignore your trolling, but yeah, people are having fun doing this. Keep going back and forth for the next twenty years. Whoopee. Welcome to 1980. Find someone who gives a shit.
