    She knows she'll always be our favorite Serving Wench . . . Mostly because she's the only one willing to put up with us. But that's besides the point.

    Yeah she's married. She's not dead. Not as though all married woman instantly become hideous to other men once they say "I do."

    Besides . . . if any of you wish to show up at her front door with a dozen SureFires instead of roses, have fun convincing her LEO husband that he should step aside.

    (Hmmm . . . Another Missing Persons case in Arizona . . . Officers have no leads . . . What a shame.)

    LMAO! No, really - I laughed out loud when I read that! Obviously you don't visit some of the other flashlight forums where the guys post pictures of me that they get from my facebook page and then compare me to the likes of Jabba the Hut and fat viking opera singers! LOL! And they even have a special name for me! - Grunta!

    It's sad that having a small Johnson can make some guys so mean.

    Norm lives in Australia, where everything is backwards, on account of them being in the Southern Hemisphere. For them, closed means open, and vice versa. Simple, really.


    And the sword flailing girl just seems pretty plain to me. Not that she's unnattractive necessarily, just doesn't jump out at me. When someone says, "Wow, she's sexy!" I turn around expecting to see Zoe Saldana standing there, or some such magnificent creature. Seemed a bit hyperbolous in this situation.

    Anyways, all that is beside the point. The point is that I am hungry, and could go for a snack, but it is late and I am not getting out of bed to get anything anymore, so I ought to fall asleep soon to take my mind off my growly belly.

    I honestly don't waste my time on those poser forums. But I'm not surprised to hear they do such things. Jealousy is so ugly. I think they honestly do stay up most of the night thinking up more childish ways to lash out at you. Then they fall asleep and are probably haunted by your image in their dreams.

    Anyone else notice that the ledge is really high up, and when the cat jumps we don't actually see him land on a ledge or anything on the other side.

    It looks like a second storey balcony too, looking at the trees in the distance. Long way down for kitty.

    Yes. You are right Ted, very well spotted, you have a excellent eye for detail. Marks were deducted for lack of balance and control during the take off phase. But all four feet did clear the board. Most importantly the Tail as well. Marks were gained for a smooth and graceful flight in the free (Panic!!!!) position, there can be little doubt about that. A satisfactory dive overall. Details below. I hope you all agree. - Jem

    Criteria for Judging a Dive

    • 0: Completely Failed
    • ½ - 2: Unsatisfactory
    • 2½ - 4½: Deficient
    • 5 - 6½: Satisfactory
    • 7 - 8: Good
    • 8½ - 9½: Very good
    • 10: Excellent

    The Take Off: The take-off should show proper balance and control, and initiate a safe distance from the board. The diver must leave the springboard from both feet. On a platform take-off, the diver may leave the platform surface from one foot.

    The Flight:
    The flight of the dive should be smooth and graceful and at no time should the dive move to the left or the right of the springboard or platform, or shall any part of the diver touch either the springboard or platform. During the dive, the body shall be carried in one of the four acceptable positions: tuck, pike, straight or free.

    That was definitely a three-butt-sway jump. Loving cats, and having just spent $800 on ours (vet bill) I didn't think the video was funny, at first...around the fourth or fifth viewing I had to laugh out loud. Kitty's body language, let's call it the traditional Flying X, is indeed hilarious.

    JemR, I'd award Kitty a few more points for keeping his/her toes pointed throughout the "dive".

    notice also how time seems to slow down, almost in a roadrunner/coyotesque manner, not returning to normal speed until the cat concedes that gravity is indeed taking over..

    I love cats too Chance. I'd like to think it just walked away and fell asleep under the nearest bush for the afternoon. Brushed it off, that's what cats do. You are right, a shaky start but once in flight it did FULLY commit. A true professional. An honorary 8.5 as it's you! Always a pleasure - Jem

    So how about a contest to post up links to your killed threads (as in who has the most killed threads)? What would constitute an acceptable entry... any thread dead with you as last poster more than 1 week? 2 weeks? More? Less?

    Just thinking out loud. Or would that be just thinking with text?

    It L@@Ks to me like it's going to be quite some time before Kitty comes down from the adrenalin rush and is able to nap. Nevertheless, thanks for the good thoughts Jem.

    BTW, that video is still causing me to laugh out loud. Good stuff!
