[QUOTE=kerny;613242]Its a broken leg not a beheading

Yeah, I understand that; it just seems a bit non-thematic that's all. Do we really need to see a broken ankle to realise we shouldn't jump off piers?

"Do we really need to see a broken ankle to realise we shouldn't jump off piers?"
Unfortunately its the only way to put it to some people. Its not just jumping off piers its jumping into water that you have no idea of the depth. If that guy had not broken his ankle my moneys on the next idiot would have dived in. Then he would have been in serious trouble. Regards Jim

Darwin in action methinks. Wasn't it Einstein that said "only 2 things are infinite, the universe & human stupidity & I'm not so sure about the former" or something like that.
Leave it on, didn't put me off my tea.

There will still be idiots even if everyone watches the video.

But dont worry, in a few more decades global warming will have raised sea levels to a safe height for that blokes offspring to repeat his jump

Assuming of course, hes not too stupid to have kids.
