George H.W. Bush Jumped Out of a Plane Again


As a person who recently skydived (for the second time, no less) and spent most of his 45-second freefall screaming a wordless, animal howl of terror until there was no air left in his lungs, allow Intel Chris to assure you that he will NOT be doing it again. Especially not when he is in his eighties. Which is why George H.W. Bush gets a hat tip from us today for celebrating his 85th birthday by jumping out of a plane. Sure, he’s done it so often it’s kind of his thing, but still. He was even looking somewhat studly in that jumpsuit!
