YOU (South Africa) - - YOU LEISURE -

On the first day of train­ing for para­chute jump­ing, a man lis­tens in­tently to the in­struc­tor as he tells them to start pre­par­ing for land­ing when they’re at 100m.

“How am I sup­posed to know when I’m at 100m?” the man wants to know.

“That’s a good ques­tion,” the in­struc­tor says. “Well, when you get to 100m you can recog­nise the faces of peo­ple on the ground.”

The man thinks about this for a mo­ment.

“Okay,” he says, “but what if there’s no one there I know?”
