A UNC* student was taking her first skydiving lesson. The instructor told her to jump out of the plane and pull her rip cord, explaining that he himself would jump out right behind her so that they would go down together.
The student understood and was ready. Just before it was time for her to jump out of the plane, the instructor reminded her that he would be right behind her. She jumped, and, after being in the air for a few seconds, pulled the rip cord. The instructor followed her out of the plane. He pulled his rip cord but the parachute didn't open.
As he struggled to pull the emergency rip cord, he shot downward and darted past the UNC student. Seeing this, she quickly undid the straps to her own parachute, and yelled after him, "So you wanna race, huh?!"

The day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives. --2 Peter 3:10-11
