Parachute freefall course, my first 60 sec delay using a BOC (Bottom of Container) mounted pilot drogue (Which you cannot see when in freefall).

Instructor: OK bloggs, just before you reach your deployment altitude, left arm above your head and with your right hand reach down beside your right arse cheek, find the handle, grip it and with one smooth motion extract and throw it out to the side and return to the stable position.

Me: What if I reach down and accidentally miss the handle ?

Instructor (deadpan) Do you often go to wipe your arse and accidentally miss it ?

Much sniggering from the lads behind me.
