Maybe when I turn 80 I'll try it

I will never understand why people play games with life. I will also never understand why people who get insanely lucky and survive after doing something stupid will then go and do it again....

Well sky diving is very safe statistically. So she got insanely unlucky. You know you're at greater risk of dieing in an automobile accident. You can thank my new job at the insurance company for more details on risk management. :)

If it makes people happy and it's legal then why not. I mean perhaps the judgement wasn't the best to do while preggers but that's a story for another day.

To each his own man to each his own. :)

I'm not saying people shouldn't be allowed to skydive, I'm just saying that it seems to me the risk outweighs the reward. And what is the reward, exactly? An adrenaline rush? A "thrill"? Call me a puss but I fail to see how risking death or 15 steel plates in your face just to do basically the same thing as ride "Dr. Doom's Free Fall of Death" at the amusement park but do it for a few more seconds is all that important.
/and yes, I'm aware that I didn't want to ride Dr. Doom's Free Fall of Death when I had the chance so bite me

There is only one activity I absolutely refuse to do, and that's skydiving. Fucking forget it. No way in hell.

There's video of this on the CBS site. I had to stop watching once her fellow diver realized she was in trouble and started screaming. Also says she didn't realize she was pregnant until after the incident.

the only reason that you have a greater risk of dying in a car accident is because you drive every day. you only go skydiving a couple times in your life...

i think it's very kind and considerate of her that next time she goes skydiving and dies...she'll be leaving a two month old baby motherless...

how are those thrills for you?

Bill Wheatley said...

lol yea you totally pussed out on me you jerk. I had to ride all alone that hurt me deeply.

Morgan feel free to say no to this but would you shave my coin purse?

Bill Wheatley said...

well if she didn't know she was preggers before hand then it makes even more sense. I just couldn't figure out why a pregnant lady would do that. but glad to know she didn't know that puts my mind at ease. :)

Yay! on a happy note i got the integration with my merchant gateway to work so i test charged 2 $1 transactions to my credit card and the next day it appeared in my bank account its like a magic money making system :)

Now i just have to finish writing the billing system so my hosting clients can all pay via CreditCard and i'll be happy. Go me! I thought i'd shared the happy news with you bones.

i finally rode the equivalent to the dr. doom ride at six flags over georgia (in atlanta). i won't do that again. i couldn't even scream or breathe. it really takes all of the air out of you...
