Don't listen to the weed hipsters, it's like asking about coffee in Portland. You can get excellent product at the private pot stores and it's far more convenient and consistent.

They have to dry it to a certain standard to sell it a consistent weight. Which means you actually get more weed per gram, instead of buying super fresh weed that is full of water still. Makes it easier to vape too, however definitely not as nice to smoke.

I did watch The Upside. In some areas, it's a shot-for-shot remake, but it does vary a bit here and there. All in all, it's a reasonably faithful if unneeded remake.

I had one of those come very close to fucking up allll of my shit. Was reading a book in the bed of my truck on the beach, about 100 meters from where the water even started, let alone the actual surf being a hundred feet further out. I heard/felt something being out of the norm, and looked up to see an enormous wave had already made it to my truck. Startled the ever loving shit out of me, and it kept coming. It didn't make it up into the bed of my truck, so I was all set but my dog was briefly washed away. Anyway, could have been a hundred times worse, but even if it was there's not a whole lot one could do about it. Run for the dunes I guess?

It's not just rogue waves. I have been on beaches in Kuaii and 5 foot waves will literally break onto six inches of water. Had it happen to me when I was like 11. I was really into bodyboarding at the time, but that first break was just a great wave crashing essentially straight into sand. Second day in I landed straight on my head once and my back called it quits. Some breaks are literally just crashing straight into the ground, I can see it being very easy to break something in your back, luckily I was young and flexible.

I remember body boarding in very mellow waves and I ate shit on a wave. Just as I was getting my wits back, standing in water I remember being around my stomach but it’s hard to be sure. Memories are shaky anyway and I had thought I was drowning a few seconds before.

Then the water dropped to my ankles and I had enough time to think “Wha...?” Before the ocean decided to kick the shit out of me for a while.

When I finally figured out how to get out of the water I decided that was quite enough for me for the day.

My dad just recently broke one vertebrae in his neck and 2 in his lower back from a 4 foot wave in Florida. He went swimming every single morning. One morning one just flipped him when he wasn’t expecting a wave while swimming toward the shore and from what the doctor said, he’s lucky to not be paralyzed.

This was a few months ago and he’s playing tennis and was walking within weeks. Crazy how it’s either paralysis or your spine heals in a few weeks

Sea floor, depending on where you are, can also be full of buried rocks or just straight up made of rocks. Had a guy speak at my school once (we were in Southern California) who’d broken his neck on the former at a beach some of us would drive up to on weekends. Scary shit.

Hawaii's beaches are not to be fucked with. Between the coral (which you can get staph infections from), rocks and the waves crashing on the shore line, they can be pretty powerful. I'm used to Florida beaches but when I went there, I was knocked down as an athletic young adult because I didn't expect it. Even when I knew what I was doing, I got roughed up between rocks because the wind picked up

Ocean lifeguard for about a dozen years on the east coast. Depending on the slope of the beach, the tides, and weather, this happens with varying frequency. Overall, it happens so often that we practice this more than almost any other rescue technique. Some days, multiple head and neck injuries would occur on the same beach within an hour of one another. Waves as little as 3 feet can paralyze a person, and other times, no wave at all is needed, if diving in shallow water. We (mostly EMTs) have a protocol we go through to detect cervical-spine injuries. The major sign of trauma is numbness and tingling in fingers, along with head or neck pain following an impact. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, other signs of typical head injury, like leaking fluid from the ears. If you experience this, get to a safe place, and move as little as possible until help arrives.

How to avoid head and neck injuries and enjoy your vacation:

  • Familiarize yourself with the water -- do not rush into the water and dive in without knowing the depth. It is safest to never dive in the ocean.

  • Always keep your face to the ocean -- NEVER turn your back on the waves. This is to keep you alert. Many neck injuries are the result from being hit from behind.

  • When riding waves on any format (surfboard, bodyboard, body), RIDE THE LINE of the break, do not come straight in.

  • If bodysurfing, always extend a hand to catch yourself on the ocean floor before impact.

  • When bodyboarding, be careful not to learn too far over nose -- you'll flip over and go right into a head injury.

  • You're generally safer ducking under a breaking wave, than trying to go over it.

  • When in doubt, don't go out! Shore break is the most dangerous condition for neck injuries, do not linger in shore break.

Feel free to ask any other questions you've got.

I experienced your 5th bullet point. Was just riding small waves back to shore for fun in CA when a slightly bigger one came and I turned around and tried riding it (im a novice) but instead nose dived from the weight I put on the front of the board, got slammed and scorpioned into the shore floor covered in broken seashells and rocks. Bit my lip and ruined my face for 3 weeks. Lower back hurt for a month or so. Very scary.

Haha yes, seen that movie as has he. Strikingly similar, although he wasn't paralyzed by a paragliding accident. The sense of humor the main character has in the movie is also scarily close to my dad's.

So is the "it" just assumed? I was trying to recall my French lessons from 15 years ago and thought <<je déteste>> is just "I hate".

Surcouf

It is implied. To use "le" in that context, you'd need to have the thing you hate to be specifically mentioned just before.

Ex: As-tu vu ce commentaire? Je le déteste.

Don't ask me why.

the_cramdown

Wouldn't the comment itself be specifically mentioned just before the "I hate it"?

Surcouf
2
2 months ago

The difference is subtle, but it boils down to this:

"Je déteste" conveys that you hate the whole comment/comment chain you're replying to.

"Je le déteste" would imply that there is something/someone mentioned in that comment that you hate.

If you reply "Je le déteste" to the comment "Les untouchables", it sounds awkward and unclear. "le" in this case would refer to "untouchables", not the whole comment.

Hope this is clearer.

With wheels you need to come in a lower angle with more ground speed to lessen the impact. With my legs I can come in more vertical and flare at the end for a soft touchdown with a couple of steps taken. If you can time the flare really well and the trike has nice suspension qualities then you can drop a bit more vertical

emmettiow

If you land a paraglider right you don't even need to bend your knees.

Source: I've only done about 6 weeks of paragliding with less than 100 landings but when you nail it you genuinely don't do anything than just stand. You can quite feasibly consistently meet the ground at 0 speed and next to 0 rate of descent.

That being said, a gust of wind or maljudgement will leave both pilot and passenger facefirst!

Have you seen the movie The Upside? It's with Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart. It's a great movie. Cranston plays a quadriplegic who was injured while paragliding in a storm (the character admits he shouldn't have gone out that day but desired the rush) and Hart is his caretaker. I think it does a great job in exploring the details of what it's like being disabled.

Seeing this reminded me of the movie, especially the ending of the movie (sorry for the little spoiler). It's great seeing your father do this. There are many opportunities for disabled people to be active and they need to see this. I'm speaking for myself here also as a disabled person. My activity is handcycling. I'm already at 500 miles for the year.

This is great.

The Upside is a remake of Intouchables. watch it if you have time it's an amazing movie.

That is fucking beautiful. I can only imagine, after flying for 30 years and losing that, the moment those wheels leave the ground must've been the biggest rush.

For a second my mind was thinking you pushed dad off a cliff in a devious manner.

I bet that’s an incredible experience for him and how freeing it must’ve felt to soar like that once more. Awesome video

As a Paraglider Pilot that launch looked terrifying. Congrats on the Pilot for a successful launch.

Any landing you can drag yourself away from using only your chin is a good landing.

Seriously, "props" to him. I did 18 skydives before my back gave out, and I enjoyed being under the canopy more than the freefall. Might try paragliding if I ever get the chance.

The first time I watched this I didn’t see the guy strapped to the back of the chair and I thought you just yeet’d your dad off a cliff with a chute attached to him.

I laughed way too hard at that

r/sweatypalms for the guy in the red. If he trips it could be a long trip. The ground looks covered in loose rocks and he takes a couple steps to stop his momentum. Every time i watch this i feel like he's about to fall off.

My mom always said I couldn't go paragliding cause I'd break my neck.

Tell your Dad thanks for sticking it to Mom's everywhere.

Absolutely beautiful...it's amazing because 32 years is most of your adult life. That's probably how he defined himself, or at least a part of himself, and the man hours spent learning to fly are pretty steep...now if you'll excuse me, someone is cutting onions in here.

What an overly complicated way to kill someone, he would fall much faster without the parachute.
