    I start picking out the MGRS coordinates and plotting them. The targets are interesting to say the least.

    Jean-Claude van Damme was cast as the alien in the 1987 movie "Predator". He eventually ended up being fired and replaced by Kevin Hall.

    You don't go "up" when you deploy a parachute. It's the Cameraman continuing to fall at terminal velocity as the jumper decelerates gives that visual effect.

    How’s this for a follow-up, Rango?

    Jimmy Hendrix was a paratrooper.

    ...and one more. :)

    The answer to every Student Skydivers question:
    "How Long do I have to deploy the reserve if I have a malfunction of my main parachute?"

    Jumpmaster: "The rest of your life". ;)

    If you build a man a fire, he’ll be warm for one night.

    If you light a man on fire, he’ll be warm the rest of his life.

    Van Damme's "Predator" costume was insectoid and bright red, and he objected to having to keep the mask on. Once he was fired the Predator went through a major redesign courtesy of Stan Winston, resulting in the creature we all know and love today.

    Most of those are info traps posted on social media.
