: The thread below which referred to spinning out of control reminded me of a phrase about pilots. "It is said that there are old pilots and bold pilots; but there are no old bold pilots!"
: There is some truth to this thought, and those of us who have been lucky enough to be pilots, and have scared themselves just a few times in the air, understand the truth of this expression.

And that reminds me of a quote from Little Richard: "When you get older, you get bolder."
