Don't quote me, but I seem to remember hearing something along the line of 1 out of every 100,000 jumps ends in a fatality. But that includes all jumps tandems, students, work jumps, training jumps and fun jumps. Oh and I'm much more likely to meet my maker in this sport then you are since I am much more likely to take chances that you wouldn't. Damn the curse of holding a "D" license. Angelic

But rest assured. There is a 100% probability that your life on this planet as we know it will end one day. But I'm sure you already knew that.

that sort of debate is rarely about facts, usually driven by emotion. Save the trouble and buy a pitcher of beer.
