    Default Did You Know.. [Fact]

    ..that you are 80% more likely to die from parachuting than you are from the prohibited drug, ecstasy (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine).

    Ecstacy (or MDMA) is an illegal and deadly drug that may cause memory loss, permanent brain damage, sensory impairment, and other disorders. Often used at parties and 'raves', even though the combination of crowded all-night dance parties and Ecstacy use has been reported to cause fatalities.

    Their is an explanation for this as to why parachuting is a lot more deadly, although I want to know what other users thought of this. A whole 80 percent! This was told today to my step-father from an expert on this field as part of his official police training.

    That which is; is the truth.

    PARACHUTES!!! With my luck and these statistics, I would die if I ever did this.

    Those are crazy stats. I would have thought that any type of drug was more deadly than parachuting...

    It makes perfect sense. Ecstasy isn't typically very lethal unless you ingest large quantities of it (which makes as much sense as drinking 50 cups of coffee, or smoking 200 cigarettes). That doesn't mean it's harmless though. It has some pretty nasty long term effects, including pseudo-permanent brain chemistry changes.

    XTC kills you because of the dehydration and exhaustion. When you take XTC you feel refreshed. But you won't notice the fact that you are drying out and getting tired. That is what kills you.

    I would like to go parachuting. But still.. I'm not that lucky.

    Exactly, it can do some serious and permanent damage to the brain. What's more is that it has still taken the lives of many people and is still deadly nontheless. Also it is becoming a more popular drug to the younger generation of school children.

    I find it quite bothering that doing one of my most biggest life ambitions is a great 80 percent deadlier than this drug is when in its deadliest form.
    That which is; is the truth.

    So you were tripping? With some people it's good. Others it's not. It's just best for you to stay away from them even if you are not tripping.

    You are right, those statistics do exist, although they are not in your favour. Their are currently 65,921 threads in these forums, yet you only have 761 posts (at this time). After a lot of confusing mathematic problems by using the site statistics and then comparing them to the amount of posts you have made, I am quite positive that you do not reply to every thread made since your arrival. Then ofcourse is the matter in which you often reply to the same thread more than once. But let us not go into this.

    On topic: It is so scarey knowing that this ambition of mine is more likely to be the cause of my death then it would me going to an all-night party and taking this crap. Their is a very high possibility that I could die the night of this fictional and never-existing party, yet the chances of me dying doing parachuting is a 'lot' more higher. Very scarey thought.

    No kidding. I actually thought that parachuting would lead to that kind of thing. Sure drugs can do it, but who can trust manufacturers and parachutes? What's next? Bungie Jumping deaths are gonna climb up by 40%?

    What does this have to do with anything? I clearly said in the OP that this was a real fact told by an officer within the Police Service that specialises in drugs and their effects. It was told directly to one of my relatives whom is new to the force. I don't know about where you live but over here officers in the police service are not allowed to lie to new recruits, especially when teaching them things so important such as the use of drugs.
    That which is; is the truth.
