That’s why you should stay in bed.
Hang gliding because it lacks a means to stop a fall.
it’s scary when Pig has a point or 2.
never done any of the three myself, Rat, but I have done Pig’s thing
Oh, I forgot that life sux. Thanks for the reminder. I wonder if you can Face Time your nervous breakdown.
Courage is doing something worthwhile despite your fear. Doesn’t take courage to do that kind of recreational stuff, it takes craziness.
Darwin is laughing in his grave.
To answer Rat’s question, listening to the constant barrage of doomspeak. Yes, things are bad, but how does crushing all hope make things better?
Pig is right and, unfortunately, it is the one option of the four presented that I can’t avoid.
Hang gliding is the safest. With the other two, you’re just hoping that somebody set up your equipment properly.
I’ve been hang gliding. That was a LOT of fun. I wouldn’t even consider either of the other two activities.
Most Courage would be taken by Andy Capp, Courage Special IPA that is!
As difficult as it is these days one should endeavor to look on the bright side of life. For example: Yesterday I heard that because of reduced revenue the MTA was cutting back on bus service. Now I don’t have to worry so much about getting hit by a bus.
What about nights, Pig?
Even Courage the cowardly dog is more courageous than you, Pig.
Where to, Captains Courageous?
To the grocery store, we embark.
Watching news is quite scary these days.
Facing the day takes liquid courage, nowadays.
There’s nothing like reading the comics to be reminded about the problems of the world on a near daily basis.
Rat the thing that took the most courage happened 76 years ago and was done by young men from many different countries . Coming off of the landing craft into a hell storm of fire. Thank You vets ! … Croc Power !
Some people aren’t meant to get up in the morning.
Pig is excitable so facing the day is hard enough for him to deal with…
you know, puns weren’t so bad..
Even when you are standing on the ground you are falling at the rate 9.8m/s^2.
Pigs are pretty wise.
Pig, outside of facing the day what are the other choices?
going out your front door
I forget what philosopher said it but I’ve always liked this advice…“Everyday I do two things dislike. I get out of bed in the morning and get in bed at night.”
Ah, another “2020 sucks” strip. Can’t you think of anything else, Stephan?
A friend shared ownership of a two seat Ultra-light. I flew with him and he crash landed it twice on the same flight. An undercarriage bolt sheared on the first landing skewing us into the trees, and a jury rigged bolt sheared on the return landing.
Pig was due for one.
I am and always have been severely acrophobic. In an office tower, I will not approach the windows. Even though I own a stepladder, I have had to ask a neighbour to change a light bulb for me. Skydiving? Bungee jumping? Just hand me a cyanide pill.
Yet I love flying. By far the most fun flight I ever had was in an open cockpit two-seat biplane — and the best part of that was when the pilot unexpectedly threw the plane onto its wingtips. Pure adventure with never the least trace of nervousness.
When I first heard the term hang gliding, I thought it was hand gliding. I was under that impression for years. I still have a hard time with it.
Lot of low T among the animals
How about adding: “…to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part…” for that last clause to this widower after 5-decades is a real bummer?
What, Stephan? Only one quick croc comic, then back to gloomy thoughts? Have you considered taking a sabbatical like Watterson did?
Skydiving and bungee jumping is just volunteering suicide
As much as I am eager for things to get back to normal – the relentless depression doesn’t help me manage the current normal. We’ve had to develop new rules and routines to manage the day to day and finding the small joys and moments of satisfaction and with a little luck, happiness makes a huge difference for me. While it can be overstated, I believe there is a power in free uninhibited laughter and finding the moments when that comes out are precious.
Wait stop…the point here is Pig made sense!!! Write it down and keep track of it!!
I’ve bungee jumped. It’s not near as scary as what we face today. A full blown pandemic, and a soon to be ex president who appears to be planning a coup because he doesn’t want to accept the fact that America rejected him. Bungee jumping? No comparison.
Love this. Actually it is terrible a lot of people on ‘ordinary days’, and we’ve none of those now. Be Kind; Keep Safe
Hot air ballooning because it always ends in a crash
Lacking sense is not the same thing as having courage.
If that’s the case I’m the bravest person alive.
toughen up, pig
All three have known risks that can be planned for and are regularly overcome. Life can’t even promise a good night’s sleep.
Which day, Pig? Dayday?
Haven’t done any of those sporty adventure-thingees, but have observed all three. The one that would make me most nervous is bungee jumping, because I’d always worry that the cord might snap….
WHAT PIG SAID!
I’m with Pig.
Wise words for a stupid man.
