George, a career Army officer I once met, was jumpmaster for his unit and was taking a few novices up for a drop. The flight was pretty rough, and, after a while, George called off the jump because of high winds. As the plane headed back to base and the pilot pulled off an unusually smooth landing, two of the neophytes got airsick. "How come you could take that rough flight but you couldn't handle the smooth landing?" George asked.

"Well, sir," one trainee explained, "we've always jumped out of planes. We've never actually landed before."
