[ Fowler vs. Flipper ]

We are planning a little skydiving adventure in the next few weeks and opened up the invitation to our entire office.  My favorite response was this one, from our friend, Chet Fowler.  Please note that all of these freak accident scenarios have actually happened to him:

I did a little research.

Chances of dying while skydiving    -  1 in 5,051
Chances of being bitten by a dolphin  - 1 in 300,260
Chances of having your shoulder dislocated while diving in deep water from a short ledge   1 in 1,528, 987
Chances of getting your finger shattered while pitching batting practice in a cage , behind a net with a glove on   1 in 2,673, 258

I'd love to go skydiving, but the odds are not looking good for me coming out of it alive. Thanks

LOL! Chet visited Jeremy today at the hospital and was telling us about his dislocated shoulder and then went on to tell us about the squirrel that jumped on it while they were watching the laser show at Stone Mtn. That's the funniest story I've heard in a long time!
