PPG Rules

1. WHEN A CRASH SEEMS INEVITABLE, ENDEAVOR TO STRIKE THE SOFTEST, CHEAPEST OBJECT IN THE VICINITY AS SLOW AND GENTLY AS POSSIBLE!
2. WHEN AN ENGINE FAILS ON A POWERED PARAGLIDER, THERE IS ALWAYS ENOUGH ENERGY LEFT TO GET TO THE CRASH SITE.
3. WHEN LEARNING TO FLY, NEVER TRADE LUCK FOR SKILL.
4. BETTER THAN NOTHING BUT, REMEMBER THAT WEATHER FORECASTS ARE JUST HOROSCOPES WITH NUMBERS.
5. A SMOOTH PPG FOOT LAUNCH IS MOSTLY LUCK, TWO IN A ROW IS ALL LUCK; THREE IN A ROW IS PREVARICATION. (TELLING PORKIES)

Here is a comment I read

Here is a comment I read somewhere that seems to fit here perfectly...

"When you are learning to fly you are given two buckets, one full and one empty. The full one is luck, the empty one is skill". As you learn the idea is "To fill the empty (skill) bucket, before the full one (luck) runs out".
