    I can only imagine how that 911 call went:
    911: You said you lost who?

    Brett knew before the jump that he had forgotten to do something, but he just couldn't remember what.....A mile above the ground is a bad time to realize that it was the backup parachute.

    Hope you're feeling better, I always felt woman’ rugby is a dangerous sport as you play without pads or a helmet. Maybe it's time to continue with skydiving?


    If you go tandem skydiving...try not to lose your instructor mid-air!

    This guy must have had a major WTF moment when he landed and his instructor had quite literally vanished into thin air.



    LEBANON, Maine (AP) — Authorities in Maine on Friday found the body of a skydiving instructor who became separated from his student during a tandem jump.

    Brett Bickford, 41, of Rochester, New Hampshire, and his student participated in a jump about 2 p.m. Thursday near Skydive New England in Lebanon, officials said. The student called police after he landed safely and couldn’t find his instructor.

    A search team found Bickford’s body shortly before 5:30 p.m. Friday about 750 feet (228 meters) southwest of the Lebanon Airport runway, said Cpl. John MacDonald, spokesman for the Maine Warden Service.

    Bickford was found as the team was completing one of the few remaining grid searches for the day, MacDonald said. Authorities suspended Thursday’s search around 9 p.m. and resumed Friday morning.

    Investigators say Bickford and the student became separated about a mile above the ground, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland said. Bickford didn’t have a backup parachute, McCausland said.

    Bickford and the student used the same parachute in the jump, which is typical of a tandem jump. Police weren’t sure how the skydivers became separated.

    The investigation to determine what caused the fatal skydiving accident is ongoing, MacDonald said.

    The Maine State Police, Maine Warden Service and members from search and rescue squads were involved in the search for Bickford on Friday.

    If you notice, the woman was too busy looking at her dog ,apparently confident that she had the jump in the bag. The dog had enough sense to keep his eye on the obstacle until he cleared it and then he looked at his owner. Whose smarter, the human or the animal?

    I belong to a health club with numerous active and retired LE members. A few days ago I witnesses two millennials standing alongside each other directly in front of locker-room "Hot Air Hand Dryers" exposing their genitalia to blowing hot air.

    I recall another thread complaining about older gym members hogging machines, not meeting OP’s dress code, having body odor and flatulence.

    Baby boomer generation members may be slow, hog machines when resting between sets, wear gym clothes not considered stylish and intermittently release a mixture of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen and methane gas.

    However, I have never seen senior members working out wearing academy sweats, talking in 10-code, posing nude in front of locker-room mirrors or getting after shower hot air jobs.

    Can this Hot Air Hand Dryer incident just be a Bay Area phenomenon? Townie what say you?
    Not just a Bay Area phenomenon.

    We had to put warning labels on the hand dryers at our station after an officer sustained second degree burns and loss of fertility.

    Now that we have discussed therapy for below the waist, let me make some recommendations for therapy that addresses above the waist issues that will help us cope with these stressful times...Bacon soap. So realistic, you'll want to lick yourself. An alternative is unicorn poop soap which has been described as a " magical fecal rainbow."

    I will start working on the monogrammed T-towels.
