    Don't get into a spitting contest if...

    (1) You've been drinking;
    (2) You're at a hotel with a balcony; and
    (3) You think it is a good idea to get a running start.

    A SWISS man died when he fell from a hotel balcony during a spitting match with a friend, a Swiss newspaper has reported.

    The daily Blick said the 29-year-old man took a run-up from inside the room so he could spit further, but lost his balance and plummeted 6.4m to the street below.

    He died in hospital.

    The man had suggested the contest when he and two friends returned from a disco to their hotel in Cadempino in Switzerland's Italian-speaking Ticino canton in the early hours.

    One of the men went to sleep, but the two others decided to see who could spit furthest from the balcony of their room.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    A) That sucks.
    B) I find it interesting how smaller falls can be fatal, such as this was, but then people can fall further and be fine. Guess it probably all depends on how you land.
