Taking the girls Skydiving

July 25, 2012 Leave a comment

If there is one thing I have been just dying to, it is to take my girls down to IFly Seattle, to give them a chance to experience body flight in the windtunnel… In fact I took them down there last year to check out the tunnel and give them an idea about what it was, and Lara has been begging me to go ever since..

Well, now its vacation time and we are trying to have a fun time together, while still staying in the area, so this seemed like a perfect time to do it. So yesterday I signed us up for some time today. The girls got to share a “Spread Your Wings) package with two flights each, and I order myself a block of 5 minutes… would I have want to order more, yes, sure, but when paying for 3 flyers I figured this would do it for today (it’s not like we can’t find other ways to burn true my cash during the vacation J). Judith might have considered going had things been better, but she joined us so she could watch the smiles on our faces and being the “official family photographer”.

So today we scoot4ed down to Tukwila to have a lot of fun. Now I got to say they have a pretty nice facility down there, and the staff is very friendly.. The guy at the check in desk was coming off his shift so he even offered me free coaching.. very nice of him, unfortunately the instructor on call didn’t think he was quite ready for that.. Oh well. Sucks for me J I got free coaching from his replacement.

So, without further comments, here are the videos of Laras first flight:

And Nisa first flight:

spn.dk – LIVE: Tom K.-konkurrent knækket – Motorsport
18.16: Kvinder kan skam sagtens køre bil. I hvert fald tre af dem! Schweizerne Natacha Gachnang, Cyndie Allemann og Rahel Frey har lagt sig lunt på fjerdepladsen i LMGT1-klassen. Otte biler deltager i klassen, og de tre schweiziske piger har bestemt vist sig konkurrencedygtige. Muntre mænd i presserummet (langt væk hjemme fra, hvor konen ikke kan høre dem) morer sig højlydt med, at løbets eneste bil med kvinde-besætning heldigvis heller ikke skal parallel-parkere under et Le Mans!

Oekonomisk visdom

Heidi is the proprietor of a bar in Berlin.  In order to increase sales, she decides to allow her loyal customers – most of whom are unemployed alcoholics – to drink now but pay later. She keeps track of the drinks consumed on a ledger (thereby granting the customers loans).
 
Word gets around and as a result increasing numbers of customers flood into Heidi’s bar.
 
Taking advantage of her customers’ freedom from immediate payment constraints, Heidi increases her prices for wine and beer, the most-consumed beverages. Her sales volume increases massively.
 
A young and dynamic customer service consultant at the local bank recognizes these customer debts as valuable future assets and increases Heidi’s borrowing limit.
 
He sees no reason for undue concern since he has the debts of the alcoholics as collateral.
 
At the bank’s corporate headquarters, expert bankers transform these customer assets into DRINKBONDS, ALKBONDS and PUKEBONDS. These securities are then traded on markets worldwide. No one really understands what these abbreviations mean and how the securities are guaranteed. Nevertheless, as their prices continuously climb, the securities become top-selling items.
 
One day, although the prices are still climbing, a risk manager (subsequently of course fired due to his negativity) of the bank decides that slowly the time has come to demand payment of the debts incurred by the drinkers at Heidi’s bar.
 
However they cannot pay back the debts.
 
Heidi cannot fulfill her loan obligations and claims bankruptcy.
 
DRINKBOND and ALKBOND drop in price by 95 %. PUKEBOND performs better, stabilizing in price after dropping by 80 %.
 
The suppliers of Heidi’s bar, having granted her generous payment due dates and having invested in the securities are faced with a new situation. Her wine supplier claims bankruptcy, her beer supplier is taken over by a competitor.
 
The bank is saved by the Government following dramatic round-the-clock consultations by leaders from the governing political parties.
 
The funds required for this purpose are obtained by a tax levied on the non-drinkers.
 
Finally an explanation I understand.
