Well, that was me landing after my first ever skydive. IAF1, Instructor Assisted Freefall. Like tandem, but I was in control…until the landing. I need to see what that’s like before I try it. The freefall from 14,000 feet was amazing, indescribable Zen. 120 mph straight down, then the deafening wind is vanquished when I deploy my chute, and play all the way down. Highly recommended for those who’ve ever contemplated it.
And then, Wow, a surprise. I saw the oddly named The Chronicles of Riddick at last, after avoiding it for years. I was sure it would suck, but I was wrong. If you keep an open mind and just disappear into that Universe, forgiving gaping scientific plot holes is a rewarding exercise in receiving a pretty cool little story.
