You and Professor Reimann, in full-body jumpsuits, riding 15,000K feet up, in an empty aircraft. You signed a waiver while on the ground. There’s no going back now.
As you reach cruising altitude, you contemplate and discuss the legal ramifications of said waiver with Professor Reimann. What exactly were the provisions? Did this business exculpate themselves from all liability? What is the duty of care in such an extreme environment?
The aircraft door opens. You begin to ask yourself more questions. Should I have drafted a will? Who will inherit all of my legal books? Why did I go to law school in the first place? What is the meaning of life?
Professor Reimann, donning a mischievous, ear to ear grin, yells something you can’t hear. He pulls you over, gives you a thumbs up, and PUSHES YOU OUT OF THE AIRCRAFT!
This is a rush you’ve never experienced. Not only are you free falling at 100+MPH, but the law has finally, for once, escaped your mind! You take in every blissful second of this transcendental experience, living completely in the moment.
Your parachute opens and you see your law professor’s parachute open nearby. The ground approaches as you float feather-like towards it. Before you know it, it’s all over. You made it safely to ground. Lawsuit free.
You think to yourself: “Boy, am I glad I went to the auction this year and bought this item! My life will never be the same. And to think that every cent of the money I paid is going to fund the public interest work of my fellow peers!” **What a Wonderful World by Louie Armstrong begins playing in your head**
Professor Reimann lands and comes running towards you. “Wasn’t that great!?” he says. “Did we just become best friends?!”
You spend a few minutes giving each other Top Gun high fives and bear hugging. You walk off into the sunset, returning to law school on Monday a new person.
Today’s SFF Auction Item of the day is Skydiving with Professor Reimann. This experience of a lifetime could be YOURS by coming to the Auction this year!
