Skydiving

I feel bad for people who lived before the advent of skydiving. Without skydiving they would have had no way to demonstrate they are “adventurous” and “living life to the fullest.” And their bucket list would have been diminished. How did people measure the quality of their lives before skydiving? Thank you skydiving for giving the modern world an activity that people want to do before they die. You and electricity have given us so much.

  1. I’m pretty sure that sky diving will never, ever be on my bucket list. It is not something I need to do before I die as I’m convinced it will speed me quickly to that day. Nope. Not for me. I like my feet on the ground. Thank you very much.

  2. I can safely say skydiving is NOT something I’d like to do before I die. Nor bungee jump or parasail or… Giant wuss am I.

  3. For what’s worth, I went skydiving twice in a month when I was 19. Cannot be described to someone who hadn’t done it.

  5. My list for why skydiving should not have been invented: retinal detachment, no plan B when your ‘chute doesn’t deploy, if you don’t die when you hit the ground without your ‘chute (I have treated these unfortunate souls in the spinal unit), heart attack on descent… I could keep going, but let’s just say I am not one to take unnecessary risks for adventure!!! (Or maybe just too chicken) 😀

  7. This reminds me of Peggy Hill’s skydiving SNAFU on King of the Hill, also that episode of Boy Meets World and the entirety of Band of Brothers (in which parachuting serves a greater purpose).
