Hey, it's also perfectly safe to stay airborne. It is only in that transition between the two that trouble arises.

The only thing that can be worse is if he skydived into a helicopter in flight which then crashed into an orphanage. the one surviving orphan gaining super powers and then attempting to take over the world.

The observers walk away in shock but the one little boy present runs towards the dead guy

so wait, if he didn't open his reserve, that means he had probable passed out during the drop. thing is, i thought it was an international standard to have a third, smaller emergency chute connected to an altimeter that deploys at a safe(r) level. perhaps not in columbia.
sure, there is no totally safe drop, but it's pretty close. and that margin of error is why we do it.
Dont reserves have an altimeter to them to cause them to automatically open should the main chute fail and you're unconscious?
rafiki is obviously in the industry.
mouser: i didn't say it right before but yes and no. some packs just have two, in which case the "reserve" is the emergency and is hooked to the dead man altimeter switch. the times i've jumped, which is admittedly few (6), the emergency was a third shoot.
You are required to fill your pockets with quarters and candybars before jumping.

Click click click click. This lighter is so not wind proof.

Too far away from point of impact. No blood and guts. Still, a fairly entertaining minute.

He's hurt! Hurt bad! What do we do? Run!

The old Looney Tunes "no parachute" gag isn't so funny in real life, I guess.
At least, it didn't turn out to be an anvil though.

(to the chorus of Battle Hymn of the Republic):
What a hell of a way to die
With a rifle up your ass
And a bullet in the eye
What a hell of a way to die
When your ball hang lower
Than your paratrooper boots.
That doesn't even vaguely think about beginning to approximate a bad dream of the chorus of the Battle Hymn of the Republic's meter even if you ran it through Babelfish ten times while drunk. Are you sure you weren't thinking of "Freebird?"

"Oh my god I think he's dead..."
"... I could use a smoke, you coming?"

And Kenny runs.
"Don't go Kenny, it will be horrible!"
"I don't care!"
