Imagine it: you’re piloting a jet and something goes wrong. You know you’re in trouble. What do you do? Do you engage the ejection seat? How do those seats work anyway?

    I would engage because it is better to do that than cost your life as people say you only live once

    I would eject, but with a parachute :3

    Anyone have a snack for the kitty?

    You eject yourself by pulling on the handles above your head and a sheet falls over you (Because of the wind) and the seat gets pushed up then the parachute opens up and hopefully you’re over land!:)I would eject!
