    This is one of the best. I like how it’s actually a story.

    Wow. There’s so much backstory.

    The way I interperate it, the lovers only had one parachute, but they loved each other so much that niether could live without the other. So neither one of them used the parachute and they died together.

    No, I wouldn’t sue you. I think that’s really cool that you want to use it for a song title. Please feel free to.

    Also thanks everybody for the nice feedback on this.

    The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one.I mean, I know it was my option to read, but I in fact thought youd have something interesting to say.All I hear is a bunch of whining about some thing which you could fix if you werent too busy seeking attention.

    The comment below mine is sort of interesting :).

    At first I thought it was directed at me so I took it at face value and got all offended about it. I was all set to do a massive, hate-filled, hamer-down rebuttle. But then, on a whim, I followed the link and it brought me to a site advertising cars. So then I stoped and thought about it, and the whole thing doesn’t really fit at all does it?

    I did a little research on Google. Turns out this phrase (or variations on it) is popping up all over the web. Basically anywhere that you can attach a website to your screename you might find this comment. What I found out is that it’s actually a very cleverly designed gimmick done by a private advertising company. This flame is spread about blonging-esk sites in an attempt to get you to click on the link, at which point it takes you to the site of one of their patrons. It’s interesting because it builds on itself by drawing attention and flames to it from other commenters – which then increases the number of people clicking the link.

    I know this isn’t really the place for it, but I just thought I’d post this here; partly because I thought it was interesting, and patly so that you guys know what it is if you ever run across it in the future on your own blogging sites. I do hope removes this comment from their website soon.

    Tip for a Great personal ad – Create Attraction – Do not just list every little thing you would like in a person but go much more for highlighting your personal characteristics and personality. That way you’re far more most likely to attract your accurate match as like attracts like.

    A sad, romantic story summed up in just 6 words. I love it.

    The twist in the story is that they were actually on a cruise ship.
