So, once you've achieved terminal velocity, it's no longer a problem of altitude but one of attitude. Wise advice!
Really enjoyed this, thanks.
a la Wile E. Coyote *whistles* puuf!
Wise words for uncertain times: "You cannot give up and plan aggressively at the same time."
You means like fighting for peace and f*cking for virginity? No cold sweat for me! Far be it from me to fall with eyes wide shut. I almost never get the chance to act natural while listening to the deafening and eloquent silence of limited space as I take the acceptable risk of the deliberate speed and hasten slowly through my increasing decline. It's oddly appropriate for a pious atheist to be sadly amused on the way down while thinking of the qualified success and zero defects of non-stop flights. I lubs pondering me some oxymora while falling from space. Wheeeeee!
could probably tell you a thing or two about falling from a great height.
Survivor still haunted by 1971 air crash
I don't know which would be worse, the fall/landing, or the hike through the jungle, knowing your mother must be dead. Tough gal.
Or the maggots in your arm.
That's what the tough folks call 'companionship."
