Life is dangerous for those guys.

I'm waiting for the guy from that movie to freefall to his death. What a whacky bunch.
Did I leave the oven on?
So far, so good.
I hear people are dying to get out of that sport.
Do you want to die while pretending to be Spiderman?

Something like, " Maybe i really should have used a stopper knot or two. "
