Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit drinking.
Where would step and jump be without it?
And today is International Jumping day
True story, on topic: Found an injured kangaroo by the road this evening, apparently broken leg. Phoned the wildlife people. The ‘roo was eventually euthanised by a guy who was licensed to do so. The joey didn’t live, either.

The round hit a bandolier of ammunition he was wearing diagonally across his shoulder, causing a couple of rounds to detonate.
