Big Man With A Little Parachute

Actually the parachute looks normal. It just didn't act normal.

And I can't think of any greater panic than having to scramble to look for the cord to my backup parachute as I'm plummeting to an otherwise certain death.

Hey, are there places which let you parachute by yourself after a crash course, or does that not exist any longer?  Every parachute place for novices seems to be that tandem jump.
