If you couldn’t tell by his paramount sock game, 41 is an all-American badass. The second half of Reagan-Bush ’84 turns 90 today, and he celebrated this impressive milestone in one of the coolest ways imaginable.

From CNN:

Bush has parachuted seven times – once when he was shot down as a Navy pilot during World War II and the other six voluntary, including jumps to celebrate his 75th, 80th and 85th birthdays.

Today, he added one more to this list.

Let me make clear how cool Bush the elder is: He once parachuted involuntarily. He wasn’t trying to jump out of a plane–life just kind of threw a curveball at him. I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure there is no non-cool way of parachuting involuntarily. HDub couldn’t get any more frat if he tried.

Bush, Sr. jumped into the skyward blue today to celebrate 5 more years of life, and I believe I speak for everyone when I say that we wish him many more than that. Happy birthday, Mr. President.
