    Re: Do we fall off the sky?

    Tufguy, if I fell out of the sky it would be from an airplane. And the end wouldn't be good for me.

    I most certainly did not say "fall out of sky".

    I fell out of an airplane once. Luckily, it was on the ground at the time.

    Re: Do we fall off the sky?

    Falling does not kill you. It's the sudden stop at the end of the fall that gets you.

    There's an old joke about optimism versus realism. A guy fell off a 20 story building. On his way down past each floor, he would tell the people inside "so far so good"!

    Yeah, a girl's parachute got punctured and she fell out of the sky breaking several bones but survived.

    A girl whose parachute punctured on her way down.

    I am still confused. Is it "Fall out of the sky" or "Fall from the sky"?
