Suppose it is a Quad line, so has some redeeming factors, AND it is smaller then the Peter Lynn Waterfoil that tried to kill me a few Years ago.

:lol: I just read thru the "is the RNG random?" topic; cheering on your number is hilarious :lol:

Concerning the RNG... I'm a hardcore gambler, I have run-ins with cousins of this RNG many times daily. As long as it (Ni!) is in use, it is a soulless device, just as the numbers it spits out are hollow.

It doesn't eat. It doesn't sleep. It doesn't feel pain. And it doesn't have feelings.

So....

HEY rng!!! (un-capitalized on purpose)

YOUR MOTHER HAD AN 8-BIT DATA PATH!!!

YOUR FATHER WAS AN INPUT/OUTPUT SERIAL BUS!!!

YOU'RE ABOUT TEN "0"s SHORT OF A "1"!!!

YOU WOULDN'T PICK MY NUMBER IF I HAD MY FINGER ON YOUR DELETE BUTTON!!! (I've seen reverse psychology used here!)

PS - Um, I'm sorry RNG :innocent: please please PLEASE pick my number!!!!!!!!! :devil:

Wow Dave, now those are some REAL insults.

You just so have NO chance after that little outburst.

Even with the whispered apology.

Oh and welcome to the forun btw.

I had an SDT once. Quick trip to the doctor and a shot of penicillin and it was cured.

(crickets chirping) "...and I'll be here all week long folks!" Actually, for the next year +.

Sorry, 'twas a bad pun all around.

If I win this kite I'm going to put wicked long tails on it and attract mass attention at my local park B)

This thread has gone quiet, wot's wrong? Run out of banter?

Or are you just all running scared of the RNG?

Or perhaps scared of the kite itself?

I have been trying the silent treatment with RNG and it hasn't been the successful, so, COME IN 880!

I had one go on a power kite and its about time to get dragged around the park again.

RNG it time to pick 880!

I was surprised to see how powerful this small foil is. Dodd recently posted a video from his buggy whizzing along, pulled by this same kite. Looks like a great chance for someone to get into power kiting ! I know the RNG isn't stupid enough to pick my number again, so good luck, all !

Not that I need this kite...but, how do I enter the contest? Just subscribed a couple of days ago. Presently, getting used to the site layout and really enjoying the "banter" amongst friends(?). Also, the info that my wife has rec'd from the Rev tutorials is certainly worth the price of admission! So, again, how do I enter these giveaways? C'mon..I need ammo to bash that RNG too....lol. Just teasin', but any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Forum Marty, aint no friends on here, more like family (you can choose your friends, if you join the forum you are pretty much stuck with us)

And John, when I saw your post so close to the drawing I thought it was going to be One of your lame excuses for doing it late, like you are busy or something :ani_sleep::ani_giveup:

Good luck 000, sorry 880, no I mean 960, blast wrong again I mean 833. Oh heck RNG, just draw any number. You know we will all be happy anyway. :gathering:

Thanks Baloo, twice now you have cheered on my number but I don't think that it will sway the RNG your way.

The RNG is single minded and only look for one thing. The numbers!!!

So here they are 880 880 880 960? 833? 880

Hmmm, less than a week away ... must have taken a "Bear" snooze. The kite would be a neat addition to my collection. But, I'm not going to participate in intimidation, begging nor ignoring. Simply going to wish quietly for the RNG to have a less than cold-hearted moment and draw my number.

Cheers,

Tom

First of all, thanks John and Baloo for the kind welcome to Kitelife and the shoutout of my # to the RNG!

Wow, imagine the "chat" when I win this damn kite :akuma: . Oh, relax, I'm not winning anything...but, what if? Conspiracy theory maybe :gathering:
