    So you restore old scales? That's pretty cool I guess. Do you sell them?

    As far as hobbies are concerned for me... I have way to many and mostly expensive ones.

    Here's a video from a couple weeks ago. The first boat is my gf's brother's, the second one (faster ) is mine:



    I don't have any video of the planes or heli's. I'll try to get some video of more of them, I've got far too many toys collecting dust right now!

    I'm completely talentless. Hence my hobbies are:

    - drinking
    - sleeping
    - playing vidja gamez
    - breaking my junk off to miscellaneous porn

    You want any pictures of those?

    Lets break this down.
    Figurines = dolls
    Giant = Pimp
    Smashing houses = Slapping bitches
    Stealing livestock = Taking money from da ho's

    Ya, we got you figured out.

    I am pretty good with falling (or pretty good at falling)...
    pants i may not need but an ambulance yes :0

    30ft jump gets you pretty high and far, was scared...now im terrified but I have to do it...i have to conquer this and my fear, just like i did with my fear of chickens - the chicken's who's head i broke i am pretty sure will hunt me down in heaven or hell...

    ^^ Just have a good look at the take off and landing first so you have an idea of what to expect. I've jumped ~40 foot tables, and that's a long time in the air.

    Bigger ones take more speed and body control/awareness while in the air. Same ideas, but definitely takes more skill and practice.

    Just like hitting drops on a bike, hitting a 15 is the same as a 5, just different mental game.
