you have a better chance at winning the Medal of Honor than becoming a skydiving fatality

there have been 3459 MOH awarded and approximately 40 million people have served in the military since the Civil War -- which works out to serving in the military and winning the MOH as a 1 in 11,000 chance

"Winning a Medal of Honor"? Still hypnotised and stuck in that cannon-fodder mindset?

What is my chance of dying in a car wreck when I drive to town?

Should I stay home and have someone deliver everything I need?

I need to know. I won´t leave home till someone tells me the odds.

OGDEN, Utah - A woman died making her first skydive — a tandem jump with her instructor, who was seriously injured in the fall, authorities said.

Julia Bond of Evanston, Wyo., died in a hospital after the jump Saturday and Jon Vancleave, of Roy, was in stable but serious condition, police said.

Some members of Bond’s family witnessed the accident, making it “particularly tragic,” said Fire Department Battalion Chief Steve Splinter.

there will always be some people out there that will try to take away your rights and freedoms just because it "might be dangerous" among other reasoning... this is why there is a war going on against smoking, why liberals don´t like guns, and other nonsensical rights that get taken away from us because of a few idiots that abuse those rights.
