    Default Nice Parking Job

    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I watched a friend try to land on the beach like that while on his water skis. The idea was to come to a dead stop just as he touched the beach then walk away cool as could be. Trouble is he was still going about 20 MPH when he hit the beach, which was 1/2 sand and 1/2 football sized rocks. He ran like hell for a second or 2, then went down forward and skidded to a stop. We were all drunk and had one hell of a laugh once we knew he was going to live.

    Good coordination!
    I wonder how they launch it?
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.
