    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Holy cow. My concern would be if it took off at a wonky angle, I would have been a bit further away.

    That looks like fun!

    I have seen it done and it is impressive to say the least!
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
