The best dessert I've ever had was a double fudge chocolate Coca Cola cake from Cracker Barrel!

I would say yes, get up in the air, then chicken out and not jump.

I wouldn't personally because heights freak me out, but skydiving sounds like a lot of fun!

Never. There are many times that if I didn't have bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all. I'm pretty certain my parachute wouldn't open.

I know what you mean... I have horrible luck :d

It's not that much different than flying in an airliner except that you're in charge instead of the pilot. Who do you trust more? I've flown in a small plane with my Dad as the pilot, so I'd definitely do it. One day he tried to land at a small airport against the wind while a plane was taking off. And, he did that again in a small airport in California and didn't realize it until we were almost on the ground and he wasn't slowing down! I could go on and on. So, yeah, no problem!

Lessons

The gear. How worn?

Who packed?Qualifications?Pre-Inspect? Supervision, regulation, accountability etc.

The jump (solo)

Main>reserve>(Instructor?) pancake

Many variables

Airliner.... Multi-engine. Can ditch. Much supervision. Aircraft (this evens it up. Scads of parts and complex systems. > maint. Crew )

Hardly an in depth statistical analysis. I get what you're saying, about sensation and SENSE OF control, but moral philosophy/aside, what do the stats/actuaries say?

This doesn't even address the long term health impacts, if you'll pardon😁, (pollutants, radiation, spinal compression/height loss, terminal velocity, your dad/sucked into intakes etc.)

Well, it might also just depend on whether or not there is a Clinton hitman on board. Funny things happen even with a good captain and crew, maintenance and such with those types on board.

My Dad once told me (of the young man who lived next door and was becoming a Paratrooper): Anyone who would jump out of a perfectly good airplane has to be out of their mind! So, it's all a matter of perception. But, I'm an adventurous sort so I would love to go at least once just for the view. Would want one of those chutes that are easy to navigate with!

I prefer spreading butter on my toast! (I'm lame, I know.)

bread and butter are a classic for a reason ;)

Butter is good for you, too. Once in a blue moon, some of my homemade jam or some soft cream cheese is put on after the butter. Oh! or some cinnamon-sugar when feeling child-like.

I am trying hard to watch my language and keep the cursing to an absolute minimum. My NAVY days nearly ruined me grammatically speaking. Hence-Beez Kneez :D And a lovely mornin' to you @Kween :)

Kween 3 weeks ago

I hear ya... You're doing a good job - although there are times when a good ole cussing is the best thing for the job. In this case however Beez Kneez tells a better story and is a really cool word picture too :)

Butter. Sometimes bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

What about a BLT cheese spread?

5
Kween * 3 weeks ago

If you make it...I'll try it at least once :P But I haven't made coffee (or tea for that matter) yet. Mornin' @DeplorableRick!

I used to do a spot in my virtual world at Kweens Karma Kitchen - we'd discuss what we ate or made that was a bit odd the night before.

DeplorableRick 3 weeks ago

Top of the mornin' To you @Kween. I hope the sun finds your face and the coffee finds your belly :)

You can actually buy it at Kroger. Its not a "healthy Choice" but dang its good!
