RE: Should I try skydiving?
One thing I've always wanted to do. Maybe one of these days...

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

If it were me. I would say hell fucking no.

But if it's something you want to do, tell me after you've done it.

I'd worry if I knew before.

Same goes for you Muffs.

It ain't the landing we're worried about. It's the rate of descent is what's gonna kill us.

I am thinking of doing this at some point but I might need encouragement lol!

What do ya think? Should I go through with it? Or pussy out?
Would any of you do it if you had the money?

Woah, woah, woah there! Just $350?! Just?!

Damn, man. How loaded are you?

If this doesn't dissuade you then go for it.

Mom was a professional skydiver. Grew up around skydiving. Do it. It's statistically safer than skiing.

RE: Should I try skydiving?
I just got my aff ( accelerated free fall license) and am working on my A license. I never did a tandem, I just went straight to lessons - first jump is with two coaches holding on to you until you pull. I have 12 jumps now- 25 is what is needed for my A. I highly recommend it - pm me if you have any questions.

RE: Should I try skydiving?
but aren't you afraid if your chute fails to open.... you'll go to hell? Ohmy
If you do decide to jump, you'd better pray to all the gods beforehand, just in case.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?
