I'll go out on a limb here and say.... I predict that he won't do it again.
If he survives, that is.

I have limited sympathy for self-inflicted injuries, but I do feel sorry for this person's family. I hope he recovers.

Not a Darwin award winner but he can be the poster boy in an I'm Stupid campaign.

Yes I wonder if he will survive. I canít imagine the pain he has suffered.

We donít know anything about this guy. People do stupid things all the time. But I donít understand what he was doing outside at night, drunk, around a hazardous place he doubtless was not familiar with.

He might still be a Darwin Award Winner if his meatballs were thoroughly cooked.

I read the title and wondered how this could have happened. Then of course heíd been drinking.

Yep. Sounds like this individual should have rented a movie about Yellowstone instead.

Yeah, we've read about animal attacks, people going off boardwalk and falling into boiling stuff, falling off cliffs and then there were the youngsters swimming above one of the falls that went over.

I'm surprised there aren't more deaths there.

48 years old. He's most likely already pissed in the gene pool.
