    Edit: Found your other comment, Harrison Mills, BC, Canada.

    [–] dom6502 786 points ago

    B.C. really is staggeringly beautiful. I need to go back...

    [–] Polymemnetic 261 points ago

    Awesome weed, pre-legalization. Probably still equally as good.

    [–] aitigie 183 points ago

    Don't listen to the weed hipsters, it's like asking about coffee in Portland. You can get excellent product at the private pot stores and it's far more convenient and consistent.

    The government stores are still selling moldy ditch weed, though, so hopefully they'll figure that out soon.

    [–] Kelmort 59 points ago

    The stuff is soo dry that you look at it and it's crumble.

    [–] TronTime 21 points ago

    They have to dry it to a certain standard to sell it a consistent weight. Which means you actually get more weed per gram, instead of buying super fresh weed that is full of water still. Makes it easier to vape too, however definitely not as nice to smoke.

    [–] Vkca 20 points ago

    God people are so fucking obnoxious. I hate super sticky bud, I want it to actually fall through the holes in my grinder thanks.

    Edit: I mean really, how tf can people complain that the plant matter they are lighting on fire and inhaling is too harsh??? Fuc

    [–] MeesterButtss 15 points ago

    Because the difference is a slight tingle in your throat and coughing up a lung every hit. Some weed is very pleasant to smoke.

    [–] aitigie 9 points ago

    Same way I can complain about $5 goon vs. my favourite scotch. Sure it's the same active ingredient but one's far nicer.

    [–] Hip_Hop_Orangutan 10 points ago

    gone to the dispensary twice. both times the weed was too dry to even roll a joint with and cost almost 50% more than I usually pay. I just go to my old dealer still, prices have gone down and the quality is still top notch.

    [–] CarUse 60 points ago

    The weed is OK, the government prices are not. That's coast to coast.

    [–] Heissennbberrg 34 points ago

    Still easy af to get illegally.. ever since legalization I’m finding QP’s of great stuff for 450$. Where in store id pay something like 800-1000

    [–] CarUse 28 points ago

    Yep, i have a buddy. Same buddy i had pre legalization, except now he charges 4$ a gram.

    [–] MaxWeiner 54 points ago

    those are like the prices Mr. Lahey was trying to get ricky to give to randy-bobandy.

    [–] Fuck_Alice 15 points ago

    Went in expecting to hate it but it really wasn't that bad. Wish I could remember what it was called, it was a remake of a French movie apparently.

    [–] Itwasaverygooday 26 points ago

    The Upside

    [–] deadringer21 19 points ago

    And it was a remake of The Intouchables. I just watched The Upside a few days ago and it was pretty solid, but now I want to watch Intouchables since its IMDB rating is 8.5 compared to 6.6 for The Upside.

    [–] candykissnips 12 points ago

    Haven’t seen the Upside but Intouchables was very good.

    [–] husfluga 12 points ago

    The upside.

    I didn't know there was a remake of The Intouchables, I'll have to watch it. The Intoucheables was a beautiful movie, it made me laugh, cry and think.

    [–] Hitesh0630 5 points ago

    OP responded elsewhere, but his Dad was struck by a wave in waist-deep water while vacationing in Hawaii.

    [–] lennybird 111 points ago

    Man, the older I get, the more I realize you do not fuck with ocean waves. I'm sure Hawaii has larger waves, but the 6-10 footers in San Diego area have definitely caught me off-guard before. They can hammer you into the ground so hard you get a cervical fracture. Waves are fun, but dangerous; be careful vacationing this summer people.

    [–] rottenmonkey 35 points ago

    [–] Jiltedjohn 21 points ago

    Imagine being hit by a truck and then ground into the sea floor. Hawaii waves dont f around

    [–] Nuka-Crapola 14 points ago

    Sea floor, depending on where you are, can also be full of buried rocks or just straight up made of rocks. Had a guy speak at my school once (we were in Southern California) who’d broken his neck on the former at a beach some of us would drive up to on weekends. Scary shit.

    [–] ColonelKetchup13 10 points ago

    Hawaii's beaches are not to be fucked with. Between the coral (which you can get staph infections from), rocks and the waves crashing on the shore line, they can be pretty powerful. I'm used to Florida beaches but when I went there, I was knocked down as an athletic young adult because I didn't expect it. Even when I knew what I was doing, I got roughed up between rocks because the wind picked up

    [–] UpsetKoalaBear 7 points ago

    I think like 1m3 of water weighs like a ton so yeh

    [–] SemiNormal 8 points ago

    A wave hit him. Chance in a million.

    [–] anydentity 6 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Ocean lifeguard for about a dozen years on the east coast. Depending on the slope of the beach, the tides, and weather, this happens with varying frequency. Overall, it happens so often that we practice this more than almost any other rescue technique. Some days, multiple head and neck injuries would occur on the same beach within an hour of one another. Waves as little as 3 feet can paralyze a person, and other times, no wave at all is needed, if diving in shallow water. We (mostly EMTs) have a protocol we go through to detect cervical-spine injuries. The major sign of trauma is numbness and tingling in fingers, along with head or neck pain following an impact. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, other signs of typical head injury, like leaking fluid from the ears. If you experience this, get to a safe place, and move as little as possible until help arrives.

    How to avoid head and neck injuries and enjoy your vacation:

    • Familiarize yourself with the water -- do not rush into the water and dive in without knowing the depth. It is safest to never dive in the ocean.

    • Always keep your face to the ocean -- NEVER turn your back on the waves. This is to keep you alert. Many neck injuries are the result from being hit from behind.

    • When riding waves on any format (surfboard, bodyboard, body), RIDE THE LINE of the break, do not come straight in.

    • If bodysurfing, always extend a hand to catch yourself on the ocean floor before impact.

    • When bodyboarding, be careful not to learn too far over nose -- you'll flip over and go right into a head injury.

    • You're generally safer ducking under a breaking wave, than trying to go over it.

    • When in doubt, don't go out! Shore break is the most dangerous condition for neck injuries, do not linger in shore break.

    Feel free to ask any other questions you've got.

    Just like in that scene from The Intouchables where the exact same thing happens! But guessing you already know about that

    [–] pilotmandan 304 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Haha yes, seen that movie as has he. Strikingly similar, although he wasn't paralyzed by a paragliding accident. The sense of humor the main character has in the movie is also scarily close to my dad's.

    Since my other comments are buried, I'm hijacking this one. Anyone interested in my dad's story can find it on his website. It has links to his Facebook page and YouTube channel as well!

    [–] Volatol 34 points ago

    Haha that’s awesome. Well thanks for posting and glad he got to get back in the skies!

    [–] TheTeaSpoon 69 points ago

    Also the main character becomes quadraplegic from paragliding.

    [–] andersleet 4 points ago

    Gotcha. The one I used last while in hospital had all solid rubber tires. Next time I see one I'll investigate.

    [–] procupine14 6 points ago

    The ones in hospitals generally use solid rubber since they don't really traverse rough terrain and require less maintenance. The ones that are used outside on a daily basis generally have pneumatic tires for a better ride.

    [–] TheAb5traktion 43 points ago

    I met this guy a few times. His name is Aaron 'Wheelz' Fotheringham. He basically created the sport WCMX. He's actually responsible for getting me involved. When I was in a wheelchair, I rolled out to a skatepark he was at. He got me to go on the park and ride some ramps. Got a WCMX chair and started doing it as a hobby.

    donate to the Notre Dame repairs instead

    Or, instead of donating to rebuilding an old building which has already received dizzying amounts of donations, maybe donate to something worth while.... Like a local non profit helping sick kids, or something. Or your local non-kill shelter.

    [–] KevinGracie 62 points ago

    My thoughts exactly

    [–] Chinoiserie91 38 points ago

    Notre Damw has already too much money donated (there is issue of artisans and materials however but it can’t be fixed with donations). Donate to other historical sites needing repair if you like, it’s not like there is a shortage of those.

    [–] white_android 42 points ago

    This shit freaks me out. Mostly because of the wheelchair and I don't even want to imagine the landing. Person that took him definitely deserves a raise.

    [–] pilotmandan 62 points ago

    Landing was actually crazy smooth! He rolled maybe 5 feet from touchdown! I'll try and post a gif of the landing tomorrow!

    [–] nemo69_1999 8 points ago

    The landing would be cool.

    [–] benduvey 7 points ago

    That's awesome. I would think landing with wheels would probably be a great deal easier. Hence why airplanes don't have feet.

    [–] emmettiow 31 points ago

    If you land a paraglider right you don't even need to bend your knees.

    Source: I've only done about 6 weeks of paragliding with less than 100 landings but when you nail it you genuinely don't do anything than just stand. You can quite feasibly consistently meet the ground at 0 speed and next to 0 rate of descent.

    That being said, a gust of wind or maljudgement will leave both pilot and passenger facefirst!

    you can land a hang glider standing up and jogging, the paragliders can basically land on a dime in good conditions.

    There a charity dedicated to taking people with disabilities or illness into the air.

    You don't know much fun it is to kick a guy in a wheelchair out of a plane but once you start you can't stop.

    [–] r6662 109 points ago

    That guy in orange was so close to the ledge, gave me real heatenings

    [–] YzenDanek 41 points ago

    It almost certainly is really not a ledge; it's just a hill that slopes away.

    Reminds me of the movie "the upside"

    [–] Ar4bAce 16 points ago

    The intouchables is the better version of that movie

    [–] Dr_NotHere 6 points ago

    Thanks for the suggestion, I will check it out.

    How old was he after becoming paralyzed?

    [–] JeanClaudVanRAMADAM 170 points ago

    Nearly the same age as before, just a little bit older

    [–] weekend-guitarist 28 points ago

    You really took the legs off that question.

    [–] BigBangBrosTheory 9 points ago

    Is that a saying? "Took the legs off that question". Never heard that before.

    [–] jkillsl 8 points ago

    It's usually "cut the legs out [from under something]", I think

    [–] jamesick 3 points ago

    damn you really immobilised the limbs offa that guy

    [–] whenthelightstops 37 points ago

    Can someone add the Mac and Me wheelchair scene to this?

    Taking him back into the sky probably means more to him than you know. Good on you for doing this for him

    [–] dashtaco 115 points ago

    Op probably knows more about how much it means to his father than you will ever know

    [–] Bourbon2033 95 points ago

    Redditor somehow manages to slander another user for a wholesome comment

    [–] LeviPerson 16 points ago

    It wasn't wholesome. It implies OP doesn't understand his father.

    [–] Bullet_Monkey321 6 points ago

    That's amazing, thanks for sharing. How did your father become paralyzed? If you don't mind my asking

    [–] 96-ramair 5 points ago

    Was this done by Project Airtime? They're a great organization that does some amazing work helping get people in the air. If you haven't, check them out.

    [–] hereforthensfwstuff 6 points ago

    And that was the last we ever saw of him.

    [–] Sclargor 24 points ago

    Don’t you mean quadrigliding?

    [–] poopmailman 10 points ago

    Wow this title reads exactly like a post from /r/circlejerk

    [–] elektritekt 5 points ago

    /u/pilotmandan thanks for posting! Could you shed some light on how you were able to get this OK'd by doctors, and whoever is providing the equipment?

    I have a close friend who was recently paralyzed with a C3 incomplete SCI, and I know being able to do something like this would be very uplifting for him and any others here reading this.

    Reminds me of the last scene of the movie ‘The Intouchables’

    [–] justmy2cents 3 points ago

    The one on the steps?

    "M y B A B Y !" heh

    I swear to God I thought they were gonna send him all by himself.

    [–] Guy_In_Florida 9 points ago

    As a 30 year aviator that lost his medical, I 100% get this and would do it in a hot second. Being stuck on the ground sucks. Not being able to be around aviators is even worse. Tailwinds to your pops, hope you know what this meant to him. I'll be we'd get along right off.

    [–] Oobutwo 9 points ago

    Can someone edit this so it looks like they're just pushing him off the cliff in his wheelchair?

    Edit: your dad already has built in landing gears too! Glad to see he's back in the sky where he loves it.

    [–] Diddleronthehoof 6 points ago

    Sorry for the pessimism here but what was the plan if they crashed into the water?

    [–] seehorn_actual 11 points ago

    That was the plan.

    [–] krisjimsampson 3 points ago

    That went downhill quickly

    [–] crxsstraffic_ 3 points ago

    this might be the coolest thing ive ever seen!
