    That really is cool. And we could teach the grandkids principals of flying while we are having fun. It's hard to get much better than that.

    Yaw Mon!!!

    I got the shark coming so I will also teach them about shark behavior and to always carry a Knife with them and especially choose the RIGHT dive buddy.

    This has saved your grandpa's life on more then one occasion... When you see the shark always go back to back with you dive buddy and then take out your knife and

    Just slightly stab your buddy with the knife and then gently swim away form the chum/bait you just created.

    Then get in the boat explaining how a shark just ate the worst dive buddy on the planet?

    It works for Grandpa!

    OK so it's the how do you out run the Bear joke with a twist. = Your Buddy "Why are you stopping to put on your running shoes you will never out run a bear?" Because I only have to out run you... not the bear?

    I made this joke up years ago as we are divers once I heard the bear joke!
    Think I'm so funny... I crack myself up!

    Well I got the helium tank = 1/2 of the shipment... No shark yet!

    My daughter could not take another year of the cold. She moved away last year. Back to her husband's state, over his objections, because the liberal government here has taxed them out. Much cheaper to live in Indiana.
    She told the world on Facebook they were saving money to come back to San Diego and I jump at the chance to get my grandchildren back here as I only saw them when I went to Mentone. And posted don't wait just come home now I've got 3 empty bedrooms I'll move the pool table out of the pool hall and the boys can sleep there.

    Then on the phone It will cost you nothing to say here NOW and you can save for a down payment on a house.

    She agreed and I got them here!!!! I mean with me!!

    What we are going to do is fill the Shark up in my office.

    Then my daughter will open the door to the boys double doors into their bedroom/ was my pool hall. She'll have her camera and we will hide and fly it in and attack them!!!

    I cannot wait! Plus I've been giving them hints which makes them guess and it's driving them crazy.

    Now you might ask what are you going to do with it once the trill is gone.... Good question once my grandson's learn to fly it in the living / dining room. We will take it to shopping centers when people jog in the morning and attack them!!!
    And at the beach their are a few morning and twilight with NO WIND where we can attack the innocent too. It makes people laugh and I'm ALL IN to that!

    Then I will suggest they set up a business where they advertize to attack guest at conventions, weddings, and private parties where they ware the scuba diving outfit we saw in the video.

    They are too young to follow through but it will teach them how you make opportunity by being a 1st adapter and marketing and I will tell them one more time about how Standard oil, the wright brothers, and apple computer all succeeded by being 1st adapters but mainly because they all had a PASSION!!! One to make money, two to fly, and one to put a personal computer in everyone hands. The last two had the most fun and were not in it for the money. But 1st adapters if they succeed always get rich as a byproduct of being 1st! You could be 1st to market this new technology and have a ball doing it making people laugh and be surprised. I hope it sticks it did with one daughter.
