Laptop Falls From Helicopter


Recommended Posts

Did it survive?

 

 

Yup. It was small point n shoot in a Lowe Pro case and it landed in a soft spot.

 

 

(Years ago, I dropped a SLR off of a cliff. I watched it drop 40' then bounce off a grassy ledge and disappear outta sight. We found it about 300' feet down from where I dropped it and only the $12 filter was broken. Lowe Pro - worth the money.)

We used to know someone was getting fired when we heard the sound of a C30 hitting the floor at a certain Engine shop back in the day. The only thing I ever was lost was a bit of self respect at the Sumas Inn in Port Alberni.

Well, 'nuff of the small stuff! :D How 'bout the time in China that NMH dropped a complete 205 from 'on high' to the dock. One toasted Bell!! Yahoo!! You pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

 

P.S. Sweetie and I are immigrating to Melfort, Sakatchewan on Monday. Had enough of the tree huggers, taxes and turbine politics in B.C. Any advice for me?? Now, now, keep it nice. :D:D

You can always tell someone from Sask. as they will cup the flame lighting a smoke indoors! :D

Good luck and safe move,

Max

 

Funny you should say that Max. I am proud to say that after 48 years of the habit I am smoke free for four months so far. I have gained SEVERAL pounds. Sure hope I can hold out, as it's tough going.
