At last, a religion of our own. The Holy Cretin Church of Skydiving
invites you to visit

        http://SportToday.org/~dmintz/CretinChurch

so you can experience instant spiritual enlightenment and amu***t.
Cretinism is superior to conventional religions in that it teaches
self-indulgence. Celebrate the hear and now through freefall. No
praying for forgiveness, no waiting to be rewarded in the hereafter.

Warning: if you are a Christian and you have a problem with blasphemy,
you may find Cretinism offensive.

Praise Freefall,

David Mintz
Archbishop of the Cretin Church

  Although, passing the test, was stumped on question #3
  What the hell is burking anyway? Know of lerking and
  lots of Jerking!, but have never heard of burking in AZ.

Jim,

Your font is making it look like "burking" when in fact it is "lurking".

We do, however, do have a local variant on our Eloy Dialect known as
"BURKING".

Consider the following scenario...  You swoop the hanger really
close...pass between the otter mockup and the skyvan mockup poles...You
realize that was a little too close...you gather up your gear and slink
into the hangar...hoping nobody notices...  All of a sudden, the manifest
window slides open and Bryan Burke says... "Hey, Brent... why don't you
try landing in the student area for a week."

Oh man... I've been BURKED!!  (but I deserved it)

After jumping in Sebastian for 4 days...I realized...it's a good thing to
have to actually walk 100 yards in from the landing area.  Keeps you away
from spectators and things to swoop...and hence you don't do anything too
stupid.

Brent

God bless you, Son.  You have seen the light!  We saw the light many
years ago.  The light was us and we  were the light.  And the earth came
toward us and our nylon saved us from the gravity demon.  Go forth and
multiply.  Praise the nylon.  Forever and ever.  Amen
