You’re probably looking at the picture above right now wondering what the hell is going on.

Has this nice old lady been forced out of an aeroplane against her will? Has she been torn away from knitting and embarrassing her grand kids and put through some sick form of torture?

The answer is a resounding no. Quite the opposite in fact. Her name is Georgina Harwood and she recently turned 100 years old. To celebrate her century, she decided to go skydiving in Cape Town, South Africa, because quite frankly, she just doesn’t give a f*ck.

Most people who are in the prime of their lives won’t even give skydiving a shot for one reason or another, but Georgina seems to just be mad for the adrenaline.

How do we know that for sure? Well, she didn’t just stop at skydiving. As well as jumping out of a plane, the 100 year old also leapt into a shark cage to check out the cast of Jaws first hand.

The moral of the story? Make the most of every second you have on earth. And next time you’re a little bit scared of getting hurt, just ask yourself, what would Georgina do?
