    Forget something???

    DUANESBURG, N.Y. A 29-year-old man leaped out of a plane at 10,000 feet with a camera but no parachute Saturday. His body was found next to a house with a damaged roof, police said.
    Sloan Carafello of Schenectady, who was observing on the flight, followed an instructor, student and videographer out the door, wearing no skydiving gear, officials said.
    Police said they did not suspect foul play but would not elaborate.
    Robert Rawlins, pilot and owner of the Duanesburg Skydiving Club, said he was flying the single-engine plane and had begun to close the door when Carafello jumped.
    His body was found next to a house west of Albany.





    Imagine the pucker factor when he realized he left something valuable in the plane.

    Wonder if the camera was running on the way down...

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    but every girl I found was either one way or the other...

    He jumped as the other guy was closing the door? Sounds like a suicide to me.

    I have to agree to that, sounds like he knew exactly what he was doing. Shame.

    Wonder what the blood tox screen comes back with?

    Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.

    The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.
