Did He Think It Was A Leap Year?

A Russian man survived after downing three bottles of vodka and leaping from a fifth floor balcony - twice. He said he jumped the second time because he couldn't take his wife's nagging about the first episode. After being treated for minor cuts and bruises, he decided to give up drinking,

FOOTNOTE: Nagging doubts.

Amazing ... years ago a friend shared his hospital room with a man in a full body cast .. he had attempted suicide by jumping from a 5th floor window - didnt die - but he did break every single bone in his body ...

Note to the wife: Stop Nagging. Act. ;-)

I suppose he can explain that his rational thinking was pickeled at the moment.

i think he should rather give up jumping from 5th floor balconies!!!

He would probably have hurt himself if he'd not had a drink! LOL

Maggie May said...

So its all his wife's fault!

Incredible story!

She was undoubtedly suggesting he stop drinking, but he had to come to that conclusion in his own time and his own way.

If he hadn't known, in his little heart of hearts, that she was really right, he would have jumped out of the tenth floor instead. THAT would have shown her! *rolleyes*

If inebriation is what saved his life... **TWICE!!!**

...Maybe I oughta pick up a bottle or two on the way home. "Hey kids! If you're going to be running near traffic or on skateboards, make sure you're totally tanked, okay?"

A man told me of a climbing accident where he fell 40 feet and walked away unscathed. The person holding the rope had 2nd degree burns, though. This man attributes his safety to "angels, who carried him for the first 35 feet, so that his fall was only the last 5 feet after that."

I'm not sure what to make of it, but thought this might be an appropriate time and place to relate the account.

Haha! That would be hilarious if it weren't so stupid (or maybe it can be both). The crazy things some people do!

OMG that was hilarious! Jumped a second time because of the wife's nagging. Fookin' priceless!
