I have done this many of the times. It is quite that which has the exhilaration because of the freedom of the air but also when you have the firmness of the breasts which I have the assumption is not something you have seen in the person men of the Fark.com website but when you do have these it provides the aerodynamics. Many rich individuals have done the hiring of me to provide to them this. They also have done the hiring of the roommate of me to act as the floating Island so they can do the resting. She is the bigger person. Once she wished to change the places with me. It was said by me she would cause the drowning! LAUGHTER OL!

A billionaire who knows how to have fun with his money (and does a lot of good with it too), I'm ok with this.

I hate my life.

She looks like she is attached to him, very literally, like a parasite in that picture.  There's something almost Bauhaus about it.
 
2014-03-26 09:33:22 AM
No argument here, Branson has had a pretty awesome life.
 
2014-03-26 09:40:53 AM
I just keep repeating, "Money cannot but happiness. Money cannot buy happiness." Aw crap, I hate my life.
 
2014-03-26 09:42:22 AM
Weren't there rumours of a hot fiery affair between him and Kate Winslet?
 
2014-03-26 09:46:23 AM
When I read these things, I just mentally change his last name to Cory.

He should of been naked too. My life sucks.

FTA:  "Sir Richard Branson recently let it be known that he has made the move to Necker Island a full-time one-and after seeing these pictures, few will be in a position to blame him. "

I know I can't be the only one who read that as Nekkid Island.

Much more impressive than this.

That's what it means, right? He's become a nudist. At least that's what I got from the context, I don't speak British.

He's doing it wrong.  Trunks should be around the ankles with the girl riding in front.

Was also on that famous boat trip the Sex Pistols took up the Thames River.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dauog--DgCI

I really do wish I was him.
 
2014-03-26 10:20:31 AM
He's the Miley Cyrus of "interesting" men. He's trying too hard.

Posing awkwardly with a naked supermodel and distributing a press release about it? Meh.

Getting naked with supermodels in private for recreation would be great? Now that would be great.

So am I. Branson's always enjoyed his wealth and seems less of a dick than most, probably because he was considered a retarded dyslexic as a lad.

Also, Cumberbatch should do the inevitable biopic. Branson's a blond otter.

Richard Branson: A man who uses gas-guzzling jets spewing out loads of carbon, having parties on his private island, wanting to have laws passed that will force the rest of Humanity to shiver naked in unlit caves with nothing allowed to eat but their own dung "for the good of the environment".

The limousine-est of the Limousine Liberals.

Helping Justin Beiber become an astronaut is not "a lot of good".

Eh, I don't know for sure, but he acts a lot like someone who secretly has no penis. Why is everything called Virgin?

Except his airlines is on the forefront of dramatically lowering their carbon footprint by being the first to test biofueled commercial flights and will be the first to offer routes that use biofuels derived by waste gases.

And that he's currently taking his island solar & wind powered with a microgrid setup, reducing fossil fuel needs by 80% and helping the island nations around him to do the same.

But yeah, other than that - totally a limousine lib.

Oh? Have you informed his wife? Because the article says it's the photographer's girlfriend.

It's not his girlfriend, it's the photographer's girlfriend:

"Sir Richard explained the genesis of the photos, saying that a photographer asked him if his model girlfriend-named Denni Parkinson-could go for a kiteboard with him, while not wearing any clothes.
"I'd be delighted," replied Branson. "I am an English knight so, a lady in distress, I'd be happy to help...it became one of those classic pictures that went round the world. I do remember as I was coming in, catching my wife's eyes as she was standing on the beach...oops!"

So you're angry about his carbon emissions and angry at people who want to reduce carbon emissions.

Lemme guess - you also want government to keep its socialist hands off your Medicare.
 
2014-03-26 11:55:51 AM
This is why we teach pronoun - antecedent. The way it's written, I thought Branson had a girlfriend and a wife.

Also to prevent all the people on welfare from having kids.

And believe the same religion as he does.

Which is as much bullsh*t as tobacco companies saying that "low tar cigarettes" are okay. Those planes are still chugging out carbon. Not enough to make dozens of polar bears plummet from the sky (remember that retarded PSA?), but it's still pollution.

I was commenting on his obvious hypocrisy. He wants to make everyone else live like a Medieval peasant to push a radical environmental agenda yet his fortune is made from the use of vehicles are a leading cause of that pollution. It's like he see himself as so superior that he wants to have 99% of the Human race pushed backward in Civilization to increase that gap between him <--> everyone else.

Really?  Cuz I'm pretty sure he doesn't want that.

Really...this model is the only naked woman out there? Snapchat me your pics and don't let her be naked alone. Sure this is a shameless plea, but sometimes those really do work.

Please give us details of the radical  plan to make people live in caves like medieval peasants. Such a nefarious plot must not remain secret.

Be specific and include citations.

TIA!

"The pictures were first taken in 2009, but Sir Richard reposted them today in connection with some other pictures taken of him kiteboarding with professional kiteboarder Susi Mai-who saw the pictures and suggested they could 'do better' (we hasten to add that Miss Tai kept her clothes on). So we saw no reason not to do the same. "

Interesting typo...and delicious cocktail.

I remember years ago when I was talking to my boss about getting a raise (he made 5X more than me) and he called me greedy for wanting an extra dollar an hour. I would love to punch him one day the little coke head.
