Yea, someone else pointed that out to me. That's some weird stuff. A window into the mind of a madman. In 80+ page colored ASCII texts he starts calling other designs and people "insane." I noticed on his tow treatise he keeps mentioning the word "strength." And referred to the "G" rating of weak links and ropes.

And I was all:



Might of has well mention the number in inches of water in of gallon, or how many volts are in a pound. A clear demonstration of ignorance involving simple concepts.


Some times, in life, you get left with the short end of the stick. And sometimes, in Tad Earecson's case, holding an empty sack. Literally. The man has no testicles.

LOL. Long Live TAD!

Good news everybody! Tad saved 100% of his athletic supporter costs by switching to eunuch.

In the quotes thread on Kite Strings, but concluded it was too pathetic to qualify.

P.S. Eareckson's is spelled with a k, Morion.

Who is Steve D? Do you think he would have the balls to call me a Morion to my face? We know that Tad Eareckson wouldn't, he doesn't have any balls.

No one. No one calls me a morion.

If i'm a morion. Then your mother is a whorish sombrero.

The answer to the whole issue could be the sourcing of towing equipment.

Willswing offers drawings and links
http://www.willswing.com/learn/scooterTow/

Experimental aviation is the most dangerous.

Moyes offers
TOW RELEASES BAILEY/MOYES TOW RELEASE & BRIDLE X REL TOW
TOW RELEASE BRIDLE X REL TOW BRI $25.00
EMERGENCY SHOULDER RELEASE X REL EME SHO $42.50
http://www.moyesusa.com/downloads/MoyesUSA09RetailPricelist.pdf
are those products safe?

People ask me: "OP, why must you troll the trolls?"


After watching this video:

Link


Tad Eareckson says:

"
Go fuck yourselves:

- Paul Voight - Fly High Hang Gliding
- Sylmar Hang Gliding Association
- Joe Greblo - Windsports Soaring Center
- The Crestline Soaring Society
- Rob McKenzie - High Adventure
"

So in effect my effort is a preemptive ban. The crack pot has been banned from most every arena of discourse on hang gliding. Now he is also known to our group as an incredible idiot on the subject of hang gliding.

In place of debunking the scientifically illiterate and religiously motivated Tad. I've started a free weak link testing endeavor. Send me your links and i will test them free of charge.

OP, it's been over 3 years since you started this topic to discuss Tad's testicles. I've seen very little progress in your maturity since then.

Public communication has been the bedrock of political change in the United States. That's why it was given a prominent place in our US Constitution:

First Amendment of the US Constitution wrote:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


There are people who use public communication (like this forum) for the purposes of improving our civilization - including the sport of hang gliding. Those people may have differing opinions, and they use free speech to argue for things like stronger or weaker weak links, stand-up landings or wheel landings, representation for hang gliding on Soaring Councils, and redress of grievances like unjust expulsions. These are all constructive uses of public communication.

Unfortunately, you have not been able to make such constructive contributions. Instead, you play the class clown trying desperately to derail serious discussions.

In some ways, you and Tad are two peas in a pod. Neither of you can carry on a rational discussion about the merits of a topic without resorting to either foul abusive language (Tad's case) or adolescent ad hominem attacks (your case). Both are intended as a diversion to throw a "monkey wrench" into otherwise thoughtful discussions.

In the past, I've attempted to take you seriously, and I have shown you respect in the hope that it might elevate the conversation. It hasn't. So just as a teacher is eventually forced to draw the line with a "class clown", I'll be doing the same with you. When you see a response from me using the phrase "class clown" with a link to this topic, you'll know exactly what I mean.

I look forward to your growth and maturity, but I won't be waiting around for it.

I have a great respect for Tad's efforts to keep us all alive.

My opinion of him is identical to George Carlin, both foul mouthed and ahead of their time.

Warning contains foul language.

As far as the testicle issue, dogs get better treatment than Tad.


according to science, a male with a single testicle can father 262 billion children.
http://scienceline.org/2008/06/ask-olson-sperm/

that is more than 2 times the people that have ever lived on earth throughout history.
"How Many People Have Ever Lived On Earth? 108 Billion"

Now just imagine Tad the only man on a planet populated by women.
