The random online “eulogies” are a bit of a drawback too. You exponentially increase the likelihood of your family periodically being reminded of your Darwinesque misadventure at random points in the future.

I wonder about that whole thing. I’m not one to try such things, but from the angle of the video it really looked like the cliff face wasn’t sheer enough to even try to do it “safely” - like you needed to jump out 20-30 feet just to clear any rocks. Is that normal for this kind of activity? Is it a spot where people often jumped?

Yeah, it looked like something a sensible person wouldn’t have attempted. You’d need a good bit of run and a very “forward” leap, it looks like, to stand a chance. This is one of those things where if you’re not 100% on the math/logistics, you err on the side of caution and go do something else (meet for drinks, collect seashells, play some croquet, work on your tan, enjoy an afternoon of wild hotel sex, etc.). You know, all the stuff normal, reasonable folks do on vacation.

Was booze involved? If so, did the wife not step in and veto the idea..."honey, you're drunk. You're not about to jump off a 100-foot cliff. Let's go grab lunch...", etc. Or was she part of the stupidity? "Hahaha...do it, babe! It'll be cool. I'll even film it so we can show everybody!"

I don’t know why people do crazy dangerous things that seem to be a sure-fire death (or serious injury) sentence.

To me, that’s not “living”. Living is…well, living. Not traumatizing your family by doing pointless, unnecessary stuff and having them see you splat all over the rocks 100 feet below.

But I’m weird that way...

That it's called "tombstoning" implies that the idiots doing it must realize there's some truth/accuracy in the naming. But, in their quest for coolness, clicks/likes and viral 15 minutes, it's a chance they're (foolishly) willing to take.

You know, so their friends can post asinine shit like "he died doing what he loved...respect!" and so forth, as though he were a firefighting smoke-jumper, worked North Atlantic oil rigs or was part of Doctors Without Borders in some war-torn region (as opposed to some fool who decided it was a good use of his vacation time to jump off a 100-foot cliff for no reason whatsoever).

**And This Is Why I Go To Wendy's News**

Child porn investigation reveals Arby’s worker peeing in milkshakes, Washington cops say



Quote:
A child porn investigation took another disgusting turn when Vancouver police officers found a video of a man peeing in milkshake mix at an Arby’s restaurant, Washington authorities reported.

The man, a night manager at the restaurant, told police he urinated in the milkshake mix for sexual gratification at least twice, Vancouver police said in a news release.
Oh, is that all? Because I would've been absolutely livid had it been 3-5 times.

Quote:
Investigators are seeking anyone who bought a milkshake at the 221 NE 104th Ave. restaurant on Oct. 30 or Oct. 31, the release said.

They ask that anyone with a receipt or verified transaction information contact detective Robert Givens at robert.givens@cityofvancouver.us.

Another Arby’s manager told police the restaurant sold at least one ice cream float and 30 to 40 milkshakes Oct. 30, The Columbian reported.
That's quite a few potential, unaware piss drinkers, unfortunately. And, factoring in those dates, you have to figure there may have been a bit more customers/business than usual, with folks stopping by on a break from trick-or-treating and other Halloween activities.

Quote:
Detectives in a child porn investigation contacted the man May 10, the release said. He admitted downloading and distributing child pornography, police said.

A search of his phone and other digital devices uncovered “dozens of photos and videos depicting the sexual exploitation of children,” the release said.

The search also uncovered a video of the man urinating in milkshake mix containers, police said.
How bad do you have to be that "pissing in a restaurant's milkshake machine" is the least of everyone's concern in this story? Any other time, if that's the sole offense, that's plenty. But, placed up against the other stuff the bastard was up to, it's barely a drop in the bucket (you'll pardon the figure of speech).

Another one that needs to be beaten about the head and neck with something a bit weighted and sharp for 2-7 hours.

"Sexual gratification"?



Unrestrained self-expression will be our doom.

I'd get in line, but I suspect he would be pulp by the time my turn came.

Shocking bit of piss-ism here.

One man's foot fetish (or fascination with huge knockers) is another's pissing-in-the-fast-food-milkshake-machine. Who are we to judge, mannnnnn?

But here you come, with all your judgmental, caveman bullshit, disrespecting the memory/efforts of those who courageously spent years pissing in milkshake containers at McDonald's, Burger King and Dairy Queen just so, someday, a night manager at Arby's might freely pursue his urges/desires without condemnation and discrimination (other than, you know, getting busted on a separate, unrelated pedophilia rap).

But, that aside, we WILL NOT pee quietly into the toilet, dammit. EVER! We've come too far to stop now.
