    Right, I get making sure they are comfortable. Looking for hesitation. The whole asking for concent is where I get lost. Point blank asking "Do you want to have sex?" just seems awkward. Maybe it's not these days. Would have been 20 years ago.

    My Mom was drugged and raped at 16 and attempted suicide immediately after. GTFO with a woman undressing and spreading her legs claiming rape because she was scared of what might happen if she said no. If she is in an unsafe environment/predicament with unique circumstances that is an exception. Drugs/alcohol are also an extreme exception to the rule.

    I think you are emphasizing on the “Do you want to have sex?” question too much. There can be talks of being on the same page and being consensual without full on asking “Do you want to have sex?” You just want to make sure you are on the same page with your partner. Just doing what you want with her until she says “no” or “stop” is not the way to go about it. There is nothing awkward or uncomfortable about being respectful to women.

    I think this is a really great point. Women’s basketball at times feels like it’s on life support. He and GiGi would have been wonderful for the sport.

    Admittedly, I have never been a Kobe fan and frankly despise the Lakers, but I always respected him. I grew up loving Jordan and David Robinson and then fell in love with Duncan’s Spurs and Pop. I loved Kobe when he played for Team USA and always respected his game, preparation, and tenacity. What a loss.

    This is truly devastating for the game and for the myriad amounts of young boys and girls who looked up to him. Hopefully it galvanizes them to live up to that mamba mentality.

    Hugged the wife and 15mo tonight extra hard. I just can’t imagine what his family is going through.

    he and his daughter were close with the oregon women's team and their best player, who is some women's basketball phenom. she stayed in the locker room during warmups before their game this afternoon and was crying during different points today. the broadcast showed a photo of the team with the daughter and kobe and i had similar thoughts as that tweet; he was going to be a huge advocate for women's sports.

    So what's the ATC protocol in a situation like that? As a commoner, if I was a pilot, the first thing I'd do was gain altitude. I'd fly well above any possible threat. So was the pilot given a ceiling?

    Not just basketball. Women's sports. Heck he just published a tween book about a girl who uses magic to win in tennis. His influence in youth sports reached well beyond basketball and was only going to grow. That's what really sucks to me.

    The rape accusation conversation is interesting to me today because I remember at the time it happened that it was a reminder that we don't really know these people we cheer for. That was kind of bookended by the stuff with Tiger at the end of that decade in a much different way in terms of "he's not what we were sold in the commercials" and such. Kind of seems like we forget that lesson frequently and the example of a journalist tweeting a story about his case and getting death threats because of it shows that. The hero worship that exists with athletes and celebrities is scary sometimes.

    not regularly, no. But I have twice in the last ~2 years (Blade) and that and some other friends’ experiences engendered a few friends and family members to bring it up today in group chats etc :idk:I also have some family members who are scared of flying, period, which doesn’t help.

    my point is that it’s a growing sector of the transportation industry right now and high profile safety issues will harm it while still pretty nascent.

    there's a lot of pilot talk in this reddit thread but you can kind of follow it if you want early speculation about what caused the crash (which reads a lot to me like fog -> flying into the mountain)

    Ok, so here's a potentially long answer and I'm on mobile but I'll try my best.

    There are two types of flying. VFR and IFR. VFR is visual flight rules and IFR is Instrument Flight Rules.

    When you're flying VFR, you can mostly go wherever you want as long as you can see the ground. (There are exceptions but keep with me.). For IFR, you give up choosing your own routes and ATC now tells you where to fly. They keep you on "roads" on the sky so to speak.

    So, once the pilot got himself into trouble (flying VFR), he should have asked for a pop-up IFR clearance. ATC would have taken over and told him to ascend to 6k feet and turn to a specific heading.

    This is not what the pilot did. He instead asked for flight following which is still VFR but ATC helps watch for other aircraft in your area. They couldn't get him on radar because he was in a valley so he went up to 2k ft agl (prior to this they had stayed at 1k agl because he need sight of the ground). Then he descended back to 1k ft agl and moments later collided into the terrain.

    I posted that my mother was drugged and raped for the first time in my life. I don't want to here shit from a woman that opens her legs with no threat then claims rape. GTFO bitch. Sounds like you respect a woman so much that you never have touched one if you think a consent form needs signed when a woman takes their clothes off and opens their legs. Don't get your inability to comprehend a woman with it being respect for a woman.

    So the pilot was absurdly negligent in flying that low in those conditions when there are fucking 2k'+ mountains along the route, right?

    Not negligent. He went with what he knew which was to follow the road. It just got beyond his control.

    ****This is my speculation and all I can do to make sense of what happened. Please wait for the official NTSB report and don't take my word as gospel. I could be wrong and wrongfully pinning it on the pilot.

    you’re such a fucking idiot, man

    sorry to hear about your mom. it’s a shame that her story didn’t have more of an impact on you. you just said someone who wants to make sure his wife is comfortable is a cuck. you also said anyone who’s had sex and were raped was making it up unless they fought back. not like they could have been scared they would have got the shit beat out of them, or even killed, if they fought back

    you’re a piece of shit

    Thanks for this. I am not a pilot but I know enough about flying to be dangerous... This is kinda what I thought happened based on where and when it crashed. I know its a mountainous and highly trafficed area. And unless it's major mechanical failure, you don't just crash into a mountain without poor piloting.
