why would you jump out of a perfectly good airplane? Can't Post

I wrote this post for my 4-way team's blog, but if you think it's any good you're more then welcome to share it with your friends as an answer to this question we hear every day.

I'd love your comments on it (english is not my first language so feel free to comment about my grammer and spelling as well as about the content :P )

Well, first off, there is no such thing as a perfectly good airplane, but to answer the question specifically, "BECAUSE IT IS FUN!"

Well, speaking from the point of: My first airplane ride was my first jump: The ride up was scary as all get out, so I did. BlushTongueAngelic

Close to a quote from a previous thread, made by someone other than myself but seems to be the best answer overall.......

So I can open the parachute, fly it to a landing, and do it all again.

Best answer:

"That's the only kind of plane I WANT to ride to altitude in."

The door was open.
I didn't like the inflight movie.
The stewardess pissed me off.
They ran out of the little bags of peanuts.

* Why not?
* I'd rather jump from a perfectly good airplane than a malfunctioning one.
