  2. Define some? more than 50%? Less than 50% There are no pessimist in skydiving.
  3. Assuming for a moment some kind of bell curve of drive and talent that is the same for every income/wealth/racial/ethnic/religious group, it would follow that a smaller % of a group with greater obstacles to overcome would succeed than from a group with few obstacles to overcome. It takes much more drive to get into Yale from out of the ghetto than to get into Yale as a legacy admit. But it is possible yes? There are no pessimist in skydiving.

  6. < (sounds like another Skyride thread) As a matter of fact I did ask this question because of the repeated remarks from the pro skyride crowd that not giving refunds is a industry standard, and that the majority of DZ's do not give refunds, and they should not be persecuted because they routinely tell their customers to go piss up a rope. From the number of people who have voted so far I would say that the Majority of DZ's " DO " give refunds... There are no pessimist in skydiving.
  7. I am just curious to know how many DZ's do not give refunds to tandems, and students regardless of the situation? I know my DZ usually tries to persuade them to come back and do it later when weather issues come up or some other unforeseeable problem happens, but a lot of times we get out of town tourists that can't come back another time so the DZ refunds them the money for the services they did not receive. Does your DZ do this or do they just say To fucking bad you have to come back here another time or you just eat the 200 bucks you just laid down... There are no pessimist in skydiving.
