Why is a broken parachute not a big deal?

Because you have the entire rest of your life to fix it.

Just remember, it’s not the fall that kills you.

It’s the sudden stop at the end.

What’s the difference between a golfer and a skydiver?

A skydiver goes “Shit!” Whack

Parachutes: Just because no one complains, doesn’t mean your product is perfect. :slight_smile:

You can’t exactly go on a test ride and then decide it won’t work. Tends to end badly.

What is the difference between condom and parachute?

When a parachute fails, someone dies.

I can’t believe I fell for that set-up.

One aids stops, the other stops AIDS.

If at first you don’t succeed . . .

. . . Skydiving might not be for you.

You don’t need a parachute to skydive. You only need it to skydive twice.

My favorite poster on the wall at a parachute drop zone:
“Do you remember the old days…when skydiving was dangerous, and sex was safe?” :slight_smile:

Motto for Crazy Larry’s Used Parachutes:

“At these prices, it’s worth the risk!”

“And if it doesn’t work, you get your money back!”

No better time to learn to flap your wings than when you realize your parachute is on fire.

How does a blind skydiver know when the ground in nearing?

The guide dog’s leash goes slack.

See, this is why I don’t want to use a parachute on my first skydive. What if it’s broken? What if it doesn’t open? I don’t want to risk it on my first jump.
