    A young soldier was making his first parachute jump.
    The corporal explained the procedure "You count to
    ten and pull the first ripcord. If the chute doesn't
    open, pull the second. That should do it. Then, after
    you land, there'll be a truck waiting to pick you up."
    The soldier checked his gear, called out the customary
    "Geronimo!" and jumped out of the plane. He counted to
    ten and pulled the ripcord. The chute failed to open.
    He pulled the second ripcord and the chute still didn't
    open. As he plummeted downward, he said, "I'll bet that
    damn truck won't be there either!"
