1: At about 100 m. reserve canopy suddenly unpacks and opens 2: Skydiver decides not to cut away the main canopy, because there is a risk the main will tangle with the reserve. Reserve canopy goes forward and strikes the main canopy. 3: Skydiver fights for main canopy. Main and reserve canopies assume biplane position (one of two possible positions when both canopies can work) Photograph by Dmitry A. Mottl
By a hard drive malfunction
A lifetime abased
Software keeps crumbling
Circuits and synapses fried
No longer firing
And takes a nosedive
Where’s the Escape key?
