    At least he remembered to come back for it! Could have been worse.

    +1. Not too bad. I've looked stupid before too.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    You'd think he would have remembered those were one way gates. Panic does weird things.

    On the other hand, it looks like it would make a nice carnival ride if it had a softer landing.

    I trip a lot (stupid feet), and my wife laughs every time. I have fallen a couple of times...but the first thing I check is my weapon...practically without even thinking about it.

    I wonder why that guard didn't automatically feel for his weapon?

    Stay armed...even after falls...stay safe!

    I remember a number of years back I was walking rather briskly down steep hill it was a paved drive at work, n I stepped on a very round rock about the size of a golf ball.

    I did a perfect 360 flip in the air and landed on my feet with my only casualty of my hat on the ground. I looked all over the area because I felt so stupid, and was worried someone had seen it.

    I could not have done that on purpose (the 360 flip) if I tried a hundred times. I just wish it had been on video now.
