Japan, one of the wealthiest countries, has impoverished areas.

Yeah, I agree. That’s a huge problem. People serve their country, then lack support as they exit said service. That alone discourages enlistment.

I don’t know how much the government does for veterans, but I don’t have to do any research to know it’s definitely not enough.

It’s a sad story.

Considering he had on a parachute, it’s better the bars broke and he went off the cliff prematurely, rather than the bars breaking and he lands face first on the ground behind him. He would’ve had terrible injuries.

They have the same kind of mentality. They probably have different reasons for pursuing such danger, but they strive to be great. I think it would be hypocritical of us to praise them when they succeed, yet call them fools when they fail.

If that’s the case, we should call them fools when they start that path. But then that would say more about us than them, wouldn’t it?

It’s not much different than Ronnie Coleman or the competitive eater guy…I don’t remember his name…the one who doubled the Nathans hot dog record. Same for Goggins. When Goggins ran his first 1st 100-mile race he nearly died. He could have died. He had really bad rhabdymyolysis. No one would say it was a smart move for him to do that.

They know the risk, and take a chance on themselves. Sometimes, they fail. But at least that guy died pushing his limits. That’s more than what could be said for the rest of us who are often playing it safe.

Steve Irwin died doing what he loved. CT Fletcher risked dying during a bench press. His doctor warned him not to because his heart valves could burst.

It really is a different kind of mentality.

When they succeed, they’re great; when they fail, they’re fools. Strange, no?
