Modded the forum some time ago

A while ago I modded the forum to allow for youtube imbedded videos. You first need to add the url link

Then you highlight the entire link and click on the YouTube BBCode tag above in the editing view. That will put the tags around the link. The forum will do the rest.

It will look like this

Code: Select all

Video simulations don't think. Maybe we can use the same software to make a video of hang gliding through LAX?

Huh? Are you saying that the video isn't real? Sure looks real to me.

That "31 roller suit" kinda makes it look like a human version of the Skeleton event that they have in the Winter Olympics!!!!

Sure looks like a blast!!!

Believe it

So do you have some reason to believe this is faked? Did you look at the other videos about the same guy? Looks like a lot of work to fool somebody.

Hard to believe this is a fake. I don't believe this is anything but the real deal.

How about this one? Is this not true either?

I agree Chip. I truly believe that the '31 roller suit' videos aren't faked. Now where can I get one of those suits?

As far as the 'flying squirrel' suit, you won't catch me in one of those things because I just don't trust my life with having to use a parachute all of the time. At least with a hang glider I can see the condition of the hang glider before 'jumping off' the mountain. Just don't trust something popping out of a 'backpack' every time. :o

Yea!!!!!!!! Let's get some of those '31 roller suits'!!!!!!!
:D
