Not so good odds

I just learned that the odds of survival for something I’ve always wanted to do are 1 – 1,000. Meaning, 1 in 1,000 people die. I’ve also learned the proper term for this activity. It’s called parapente, or para-gliding. It looks like so much fun, but I just got done talking to a co-worker about it and he said he’s done it before and it’s very dangerous.

My thinking is that it’s not as dangerous as just plain parachuting or hang gliding…so if I’m going to do something dangerous, at least it’s not as dangerous as other things, right? haha.

Oh well. I suppose I could spend my time doing something more safe…like making sand art in a monastary or playing with cotton balls in a padded room.

    Go do it! What’s the fun of living if you don’t live?
    Besides, can’t be worse than motorcycle riding without health insurance…
