Funny joke.

How exactly are you going to  accomplish that?

Blevins can't stop me even with DMCA and copyright law.

What do you have?

I simply said don't bother. I didn't say I could mandate it in some manner.
Some men see things as they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

So, you think I post because I care about your reaction?

You're supposed to be good at reading people. What's your read on me now?

Again, I did not say I think you post because you care about my reaction.

My read: Butt-hurt because you dropped Sheridan as a suspect based upon the false DNA narrative (started by Sheridan by the way) and I came along and proved that it was not true and that Sheridan is a very credible suspect. In other words, a territorial pissing match.

And what would I do with "Sheridan as a suspect" ??
Wipe my butt with it, to cure the butt hurt?

Here's a question for you: How much of the rest of your life, will you "have Sheridan as a suspect" ?
is it some kind of life project?

At least Blevins is apparently trying to make money off Sheridan's non-hurt butt.

What are you trying to do?

I'm all for pissing matches, EU.

Let's start.

Did you already piss? I couldn't tell.

I'll piss after I see some urine out of you.

Please post the list of all members of the Boeing Skydivers Club when Sheridan was a member.
You have that list?

You have advertised your main skill is that you are good at reading people.

So: interpret this statement for me, by Sheridan. He's writing what he claims he said to the FBI agent when interviewed.
It's from the July 2007 Smokejumper article

What does this statement mean? Why did Sheridan think and/or write it?

"There was also an 18-knot wind. Not being a skydiver,
he probably opened the chute immediately, and at 10,000
feet, the wind would have carried him possibly 30 miles out
over the Columbia River. I'm assuming that there would be
a downdraft over the river sucking him into the water. That
probably accounts for the $500 found buried in the sand
along the shore. The bills were traced to the money D.B. had
stolen."

Anybody know which of the others who opened their chutes did it right away or after a free fall? Bruce?

McCoy was pretty much on target with his landing..
McNally used the reserve (front) chute and landed rough.
Bruce knows the other guy who's name drifts on me but he made it down too..

McNally jumped at around 300 mph..

I love the guy who parked his car with a skydiving bumper sticker on it and got back to find the coppers waiting for him.

Robb Heady skydived down to 1,000 feet above the ground before deploying his parachute in order to minimize detection. He too, used a reserve chute and landed very hard, injuring himself, which forced him to spend the night in the woods before hobbling over to his car. As we know the Politizia were awaiting...

As for Richard LaPoint, I don't know when he deployed his chute. And Freddy? Flyjack would know more about his jump, I think, than me.

But those are the five copycats that jumped: Heady, McCoy, McNally, LaPoint, and Hahneman.

Freddy walked backward down the stairs and went off back first, he jumped at 9000 ft and 125 knots. Reports are minor injuries and he then walked 10 miles.  Don't know when he deployed, at least not yet, expecting more info.

There were beepers in the chutes and an opened chute was found on the plane.

LaPoint didn't jump from a 727..

The pilots and stewardesses on the flight said the man had shown them what appeared to be a bomb in a small bag on the seat next to him just before take‐off. The bomb turned out to be highway flares wired to a nine‐volt battery. A toggle switch was attached by wire to the bag and the passenger held it in his hand they said.

He demanded $50,000, two parachutes afid a crash helmet. The money and equipment were delivered and after releasing the 67 passengers and two of the stewardesses on board, the passenger ordered the plane to fly to Denver.

The plane, followed by Air Force fighter bombers, slowed to about 180 miles an hour, according to the pilot, Donald C. Burkhard, and the hijacker apparently bailed out at 12,000 feet, using a rear emergency door.

According to an airline spokesman in San Francisco, the hijacker apparently first opened an emergency door on the side of the plane but saw that he might hit the engines if he bailed out there and ordered a little‐used rear door opened. The door is under hollow fiberglass cone that is a attached to the plane's that is make it more aerodynamic.

Thanks, Shut. I was not aware of this information.
