Although hitting the knuckle def hurts and all, I'm less scared of that than I am of overshooting the landing slope. I've seen a couple of videos of guys that completely overshot their landings. That actually distinctly resembles a recurring nightmare that I've had all my life. So, it's kind of a good news/bad news thing with me.
In retrospect, "Let's get the goat drunk"
should have been my cue to leave the party.
