  1. A pessimist says “It CAN’T get any worse than this”. An optimist says “Sure it can!!!”. Also, what about the realist option? The glass is ALWAYS full. Because... air! ETA: Yes, I read the first defining post.
  2. I’m going to exercise my 5th amendment rights!!
  3. I was at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in 2019. Look close at the computer screen...
  4. Many years ago before I started skydiving, a fellow SCUBA instructor taught me a very valuable lesson. He taught me that the best teachers are also the best (and eternal) students. This means that no matter how much you may know about any subject, there is always something to be learned. Always look for new ways or ideas to expand upon your current knowledge base. Also, be willing to listen to students (and others) ideas. Don’t be too quick to dismiss them or say “tried it, won’t work”. If they come to you and say “I have (X) idea” and you had tried it and it didn’t work, relate that to them with your personal experience/results and encourage them to look at it from a fresh perspective. They may discover a crucial detail you missed and make it work.
  5. How can you tell when a skydiver has been to an airport?? They’re still there!!!
  6. How do you cut an ocean in half? With a sea-saw!!!
  7. How many South Americans does it take to change a lightbulb? A Brazilian!!!
  8. A guy walks up to the bartender and says “Give me 20 shots of whiskey!” As quick as the bartender can get them poured, the guy drinks them down. The bartender asks the man why he’s in such a hurry. The man replied “You’d be in a hurry too, if you had what I have.” The bartender asks “What do you have?” The guy replies “75 cents.”
  9. I have been thinking about signing up, but now you say I should reconsider??? Don't Pull Low... Unless You ARE!!! The pessimist says, "It can't get any worse than this." The optimist says, "Sure, it can." Be fun, have safe.
  10. Because he doesn't already know the answer?! Don't Pull Low... Unless You ARE!!! The pessimist says, "It can't get any worse than this." The optimist says, "Sure, it can." Be fun, have safe.
  11. I do remember seeing something about that as I scanned the email, now that you mention it. Thanks for the info/reminder! Don't Pull Low... Unless You ARE!!! The pessimist says, "It can't get any worse than this." The optimist says, "Sure, it can." Be fun, have safe.
  12. I got an email from a company called Sigma. In the subject line it states "US Parachute Association just sent you a merit on Sigma!" There were links to "Claim Your Profile". Scrolling down, I see that the company is actually Sigma Accolade. Seems to be some kind of marketing scheme (scam?). Anyone else get this? Any info? Don't Pull Low... Unless You ARE!!! The pessimist says, "It can't get any worse than this." The optimist says, "Sure, it can." Be fun, have safe.
