Buy one of those Staff shirts and just show up to work there one day. I
bet you can at least make it a couple days before they notice.smileys/smiley4.gif

Yeah! Good idea and give me a 75% discount and you can pocket the other 25%!

Well let's not get him fired before he gets hired. Besides, this is a serious thread, let's not get crazy here.smileys/smiley36.gif

What ? PaulWall can't be serious! But, if he is, Frank and I have a place to crash. ;)

I would move to Dallas... so I don't have to drive down there to get the cheaper flights to Cozumel ;)

Moving to Texas would probably be ideal for me. Considering the job market sucks here in MS and houses are over priced, but I guess that's going to be anywhere eh!?

I couldn't live in Dallas, too big and my wife hates driving on the interstate. I guess we'd have to move to somewhere like, oh I dunno, Carollton, TX.

Nooo,,
Move to Collin County.
Allen / MCkinney, Plano area. Better schools etc.

I live here, and my house is going on the market monday/Tuesday.

Here's an overview of the sub-divison

Heck you can even play golf when not diving :)

Also, closer to the tele-communications corridor (nortel/cisco/HP/ Rayteon(sp) Texas Instriments....)

I don't think we should ban him, but we should all try to avoid talking about politics or religion on this board. Can't we just argue about split vs. paddle fins instead? smileys/smiley2.gif

It wasn't politics or religion, it was a joke. I guess if I were to make a joke about 911 I would be frowned upon too huh.. Cry all you want babies, if you don't like it, it obviously wasn't for you. Just my 2 cents.

Some of you need to lighten up, the world isn't coming to and end, the best comedians in the world are the ones that joke about real life actions and activities. Rather it be national disasters or granny falling in the backtub.

I was just trying to say that everytime someone brings up something remotely political on these forums, someone else throws a hissy fit. Your joke didn't bother me at all.

ScubaToys Larry
07-20-2007, 18:01
erteschq, what is you don't like about the weight system? That's my favorite part. It's the only weight system I've never seen come out accidentally. I've seen probably hundreds of weight belts slip and fall, I've seen Velcro pockets galore come out, I've seen clip pockets crack and fall out. Never seen a Zeagle accidentally dump lead... ever.

And it's the fastest way to dump on the market, and the easiest to add or subtract lead with minimal hassle... What is not to like?!

And you do realize that the Brigade harness is exactly the same as the Ranger - same weight system... right?

ertechsg
07-20-2007, 20:53
Just a little leary of the bungee system dump. Plus the ziptide 2 was cheaper.I did try it on at the shop. Not saying it is a bad BC just not for me. By the way were is JOE?

Vercingetorix
07-21-2007, 14:07
I agree with Larry. I trained in a Zeagle Brigade (OW) and the weight system is great. I threaded the weight system just for practice. Easy. The system is secure.
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Also, the Brigade is rear-inflate, like my beloved BP/W. In fact, it's the Brigade that taught me the advantages of rear-inflate versus wrap-around STAB.</DIV>
