Next time, he;ll try Bungee Jumping! (Or will he?)

If at first you don't succeed — you're toast...

Warning: auto-play!


There's an extra charge for that.

One of those times when accepting the upselling might have been a good idea

the pre-flight checklist for hang gliding is so long and complicated anyone could overlook the second item:
1. is there wind?
2. are passengers attached to glider?
3. take off

When the pilot asked, "Ready?", I'll bet the passenger assumed he was just checking on his nerve, not asking if the pilot himself was competent.
