And we all know that guy. It's are all the same guy, no matter what the location he frequents or name he happens to be sporting. All the same dude, aging not-so-gracefully with his luxurius long flowing grey ponytail. Always the outcast by sub-concious choice, fighting "the man" by choosing what nobody else does, and trying to talk everyone else into it, and if he is successful in doing so, he needs to choose something else to outcast himself again.scklandl wrote:And at least one jackass on the beach who spends all his time talking about the superiority of his ram air.

Best will buy out Slingshot in 2014, closely followed by acquiring Takoon and Wainmann in 2015 and the eternal rights to Kevin Langeree's soul in 2016. North reply by buying out Switch and then Naish. In 2018, Flash Austin is elected as the 268th pope. Following the great Cabrinha war of 2020, only Best and North remain, splitting kiters firmly into two tribes; those that want a flying cock on their kites and those that want their kite covered in meaningless slogans. This proves to be a boom time for colour blind graphics designers. By 2021, all bars are pointlessly over-engineered and kites are made of Cuban Fibre and have a lifespan of 3-4 months. In 2023 Tiger Woods learns to kite and kiteracing becomes the new golf, paving the way for it to be accepted into the 2032 Olympics.
Well, its about as likely as half the other crap written on this thread.
love that view.. if anything hopefully they will weight half as much as they do now. that's one area where they could really improve.. considering the fact that as wind force decreases more and more of the area of the kite is devoted to keeping the kite in the air.SaulOhio wrote:Asimov style robots as kite slaves, pumping them up for you and helping you launch and land them.
Then they go running after you to keep you from engaging in this hazardous sport in keeping with the First Law of Robotics.
