No sky dive

Q I’ve been re­jected for a char­ity sky­dive as I some­times use a spray for chest pains. How is that fair?

ANot fair – but sen­si­ble! Sky­div­ing in­volves jump­ing from a plane be­tween 8,000 and 15,000ft, where the air is thin­ner and there’s less oxy­gen. It sounds as if you have angina, mean­ing re­duced oxy­gen to your heart. A fur­ther re­duc­tion due to al­ti­tude could trig­ger a heart at­tack.
