Re: [Nicholas1990] BASE Jumping, it's a martial art! [In reply to] Can't Post

I will pass on to you two words that have been said to me repeatedly over the years: "grow up".

Makes me feel like a real hypocrite saying that to *anyone*. On the other hand, I think anyone who hears those words from *me* has reason to take a moment and think about it. You have just been advised to grow up by someone who is socially retarded.

Ok, so I'm a hypocrite, but some of the best advice comes from those who have failed miserably and learned from it.

The things that I find most striking about what I have seen from you so far are:

1. I get the sense that you figure that it's all about you.

2. Although you are willing to air your dirty laundry and say you screwed up, you seem to be remorseless.

First impressions are often wrong, but that's my first impression, so I'll go with it.

If the above *does* describe your general attitude, I can tell you from experience that in the long term it can make you very lonely. It does not work because you end up alienating the people around you because if they hang around long enough, you will shit on them sooner or later. Not necessarily intentionally, but by not considering the impact your words and actions have on others.

I'm not saying it's a good idea to run your life based on others' reactions--it's not--but if you are a socail outcast, it just might be wise to look at it as a wakeup call.

I don't have a huge number of close friends, but the few that I have are the kind who would help me move a body. If you want *have* friends like that, you've got to *be* a friend like that.

Just guessing here, but I'm thinking you are not.

There is no shortage of really awesome people in the BASE community--extreme acitivities seem to attract the best and the worst that society has to offer. Which side of the fence do you want to be on? What kind of people do you want around you when you are in deep shit?

Please think about that.

Sorry if this has turned into a lecture. I didn't mean it to be one. Just passing along some lessons learned in case you are interested in getting along better with others.

I hope you stick around and keep posting.

Walt

No you're not. I'm guessing you have latched on to that phrase like a Pit Bull and will remember it the rest of your life!

I probably will too.

There are phrases that just roll off the tongue and make imaginations go into overdrive.

"*I* am your Doctor of Love".

"I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky."

"Don't tase me bro!"

"*I* am a professor of adventure".

Nicolas, you have made your mark on not just the BASE community, but have created a new catch phrase.

Dride, I had already seen the video and was wowed by that phrase, but you have cemented it in my mind. Gee, thanks.Tongue

Oh, and blitzkrieg, you started this!

OuttaBounZ, my crafty friend, how about an appropriate pic for this thread?

Learn from your mistakes, professor. Go slowly, especially when alone, and always leave yourself a margin, it may save your life one day.

Good luck on your journey.

There *are* some no-shit, standup great reporters out there (or at least one, that I know of--Craig Lucie) but you've got to be really careful.

Check this out: clicky.

Funny, but do a search on the followup. The next day the reporter was on TV labeling herself as a crime victim (claimed she was assaulted) and the guy got arrested and charged with a felony. Just because of a stupid and harmless prank.

Reporters have their own agenda and many of them are not concerned about who their agenda hurts.

Not to hijack the post.. but here is the follow up..

That reporter is such a dumb fucking cunt. Million bux says if it was a drunk white guy nobody would have said shit.

Back to whatever it was that was being discussed..

Not a hijack at all. Talking to reporters or NOT talking to reporters is a very relevant topic in this thread.

I do not think it would be a safe bet at all that a drunk white guy would have received a free pass. I do not think this was a racism thing. I think it was more a case of opportunism on the part of the reporter.

"Assaulted by an intoxicated white male" sounds as good as "assaulted by a young black male" for her purposes.

For all we know, something heinous happened off-camera, but I doubt it. I won't condemn her without getting her side of the story first but I think it likely that she is an opportunist.

I e-mailed her, asking for her side of the story and the e-mail bounced. Apparently her e-mail account has been disabled. She has probably been getting a lot of hate e-mails and threats. Hopefully she deserves them if that is the case.

Regardless of whether she was being an opportunist, I think the lesson here is clear--any dealings with a reporter can have a HUGE downside.

I hope the charges against that guy are dropped.

Walt

Funny.. I did the exact same thing with the same result. Crazy

In rethinking your probably right. Wouldn't matter if it was a drunk white guy or a young black guy. Her opportunity to come across as an "attack victim" would only increase ratings for the network and help increase her image as a "I'll do anything to get the story" type of reporter.

The media ALWAYS over dramatizes situations to make them seem more critical. For sure it's the same with any BASE related report. ...Unless a LOT more happened off camera I still say she's an idiot.

Yep, it's pretty bad.

It seems to me the most likely scenarios are that the reporter is either very new and naive and is being manipulated or coerced into doing some really unethical stuff, or she is fucking evil and will do anything to get a dramatic story--including ruining some poor bastards life just for being a wiseass.

We have no way of knowing without hearing her side but I tend to think she is evil and that she's a pathetic excuse for a human being.

I do not doubt that the guy who interrupted her broadcast is a loudmouthed obnoxious asshole, but no way did he deserve to get arrested for what he did on camera. No way.

I hope her name and the TV station she works for are remembered for a very long time and blacklisted.

She's an attractive woman for sure, but is she so hot that you would give her an interview as soon as you walked out of jail and lay the "Professor of Adventure" line on her?

I'm starting to see Professor Nick's point of view a little.Tongue

I am the true Professor of Adventure.

There are many other woman out there more attractive who are less cross eyed. So, no to tapping her with enthusiasm.

If you were THE profession of adventure you would just make her wear sunglasses while you tapped her with enthusiasm.Tongue
