FTFA:The worker described the professor as "a very happy, happy guy."


Maybe when he landed, but I don't think he was too farkin' happy before that.

I don't know, Jewish fog-lurkers *are* kind of suspicious.

Why would he argue with MY wife?
She's busy arguing with me.
 
2010-01-13 12:23:03 PM
he probably watched Avatar - i blame hollywood
 
2010-01-13 12:26:52 PM
I hope he didn't waste a whole Monte Cristo.
 
2010-01-13 12:40:47 PM
Jesus H. Christo, another one? Rubberize the NYU campus already!
 
2010-01-13 12:53:37 PM
As a happily married man......I understand.

I bet his wife biatched at the mess he made when he hit the ground.

From the 16th floor?

Very happy guy with no prior history of craziness suddenly decides to jump during an argument with his wife? Is she at least a suspect?

no the 17th.. It was a bad argument

Just for the record - a woman doesn't consider a fight officially won until her husband has taken a flying leap.

assegai: Very happy guy with no prior history of craziness suddenly decides to jump during an argument with his wife? Is she at least a suspect?

This was my thought. "What happened?". "I don't know, we were just arguing and he jumped."

If it were a man whose wife had 'jumped', dam sure he would be an instant suspect.

I bet afterwords your wife yelled at you for not killing yourself properly.

See ladies? Can you just shut up and leave us be for a few moments a day?

/well, there's your problem.
 
2010-01-13 02:23:17 PM

FTFA:

"They were in some kind of argument over caring for them and all of a sudden, in the middle of the argument, he jumped over the 16th-floor balcony," a source said.
I would have to say that was the end of the argument. :D
 
2010-01-13 02:23:24 PM
I hear it already,
"Why don't you get up in the middle of the night and feed them?" "Because I am working all day and need to go back the next day."
"Why is your work more important then mine?"
"You are home with the kids all day long, you can take naps to get back the sleep. I on the other hand have to work."
"You just don't love me. *crys*"
*Tosses self out of window*

I would have done it but we lived on the first floor for the first years.
 
2010-01-13 02:23:52 PM
I ain't sayin' he shoulda did it...but I understand!

yea for leaving the window open
 
2010-01-13 02:29:00 PM
I'm with all the suspicous farkers. This guy may have "jumped" to his death. But he was more likely pushed.

Then again, I just might jump 16 floors if I've got two preemies and a post partum wife.
 
2010-01-13 02:29:11 PM
Im getting good lulz off the comments;

"There is an unholy alliance in the hallways of that school.Drugs, antichristian values ect."


NYU bought over Polytechnic University a few years ago. I kinda hope for the sake of the students that there would be MORE drugs.

Seriously all the P.H.D. students and professors sound like this guy

Should have fired up Tom Petty on his iPod for the ride down. That would have been worthy of the awesome tag. Now I'm freeeeeeee! Freeeee fallin'....

What is it about computer science that makes people so damn crazy? You'd think it would help with their logic skills. Maybe that's the problem: Maybe they just don't enough time being human.

Kind of a subset of AI research focused on algorithms that allow the machine/computer to change behavior depending on what data it gets. It makes sense given his other interests such as data mining. The recent competition by Netflix to produce better movie prediction results is largely a process of machine learning. You want to create an algorithm that given a huge database of preferences people have for movies can predict how much they'll like other movies.

I always heard that if your roommate offs themselves you get a 4.0 for the semester.... so, if your college professor tosses himself of a balcony, do you get an A in his class?
 
2010-01-13 02:33:49 PM

made me think of this

News:

A well-known Bognor restaurant-owner disappeared
early this morning.
Last seen in a mouse-brown overcoat,
suitably camouflaged,
they saw him catch a train.


Man-in-the-street:

"Father of three its disgusting"
"Such a horrible thing to do"
Harold the Barrel cut off his toes and he served them all
for tea
"Can't go far", "He can't go far".
"Hasn't got a leg to stand on"
"He can't go far".


Man-on-the-spot:

I'm standing in a doorway on the main square
tension is mounting
There's a restless crowd of angry people


Man-on-the-council:

"More than we've ever seen.
- had to tighten up security"

Over to the scene at the town hall
The Lord Mayor's ready to speak


Lord Mayor:

"Man of suspicion, you can't last long, the British Public
is on our side"


British Public:

"Can't last long", "You can't last long".
"Said you couldn't trust him, his brother was just the same"
"You can't last long".


Harold:

If I was many miles from here,
I'd be sailing in an open boat on the sea
Instead I'm on this window ledge,
With the whole world below
Up at the window
Look at the window...


Mr.Plod:
"We can help you"

Plod's Chorus:
"We can help you"

Mr. Plod:
"We're all your friends, if you come on down
and talk to us son"


Harold:
You must be joking
Take a running jump

The crowd was getting stronger and our Harold
getting weaker;
Forwards, backwards, swaying side to side
Fearing the very worst
They called his mother to the sight
Upon the ledge beside him
His mother made a last request.


67-yr-old Mrs Barrel:
"Come off the ledge if your father were alive he'd be very,
very, very upset.
"Just can't jump, you just can't jump"
"Your shirt's all dirty, there's a man here from
the B.B.C."
"You just can't jump"


Mr. Plod:
"We can help you"

Plod's Chorus:
"We can help you"

Mr. Plod:
"We're all your friends, if you come on down
and talk to us Harry"


Harold:
You must be joking.
Take a running jump......

Sad sh*t.
 
2010-01-13 02:35:17 PM
She's probably mad he didn't take the trash with him...
 
2010-01-13 02:38:12 PM
I think this comment nailed it:
"Maybe she told him the kids weren't his."
 
2010-01-13 02:39:44 PM
There are only two ways to argue with a woman, and neither of them work.
 
2010-01-13 02:40:20 PM
Bacchus-ette: I'm with all the suspicous farkers. This guy may have "jumped" to his death. But he was more likely pushed.

Then again, I just might jump 16 floors if I've got two preemies and a post partum wife.


Unless he was hanging out outside on the balcony (it's cold in New York this week and windy I'm sure on the 16th floor) or she picked him up and carried him, he jumped.

Most professors are a little crazy.

Clawginger- Catch Me

I've been standing on the edge of the roof looking down
I've been looking at the people that are gathering around
I've been here for an hour or maybe even more
Just looking at the people that I've never seen before
Stupid little faces are all I can see
Those silly little suckers are all laughing at me
No wills cheap thrills you're puppets to the master
Your only satisfaction is my lonely disaster
You learned how to creep and you learned how to crawl
But you never really learned anything at all

When I was a boy everything was just fine
I learned how to talk and how to walk in line
I had to learn the rules that build our society
But I could never understand it didn't mean shiat to me
Everybody always told me I was out of my mind
But I never did kiss anybodys behind
I'm a lot older and I guess I should know
But I'm standing on the roof just watching the show
Standing on the edge and my step belongs to me
And I'm telling you all I won't miss what I see

One foot over there's no time to turn around
Both feet are over and I'm heading for the ground
I'm flying in the air and I can feel the cool breeze
The people on the pavement have gone into a freeze
No space no time it's like walking on the moon
My heart is still beating but it won't be soon
I can hear myself scream when I hit the street
I can't feel a thing from my head to my feet
I told you I would do it and I didn't even cry

I FEEL MORE ALIVE DEAD THEN WHEN I WAS ALIVE
 
2010-01-13 02:41:46 PM
I lived in that building for 7 years. More people jump outta there than you'd think, NYU normally does a good job of covering it up.

From the professor's bio:

Warning About email:
My email latency is *extremely* high. It will take me at least several days, probably several weeks, possibly several months to respond to your message, longer if it actually requires me to do anything. Not to be rude, but might you consider not sending your email in the first place?


Sounds like a nice guy, helpful too. I hope nobody is waiting for a reply!

Try this one:

"I am so f-ing tired. The baby was up every half hour last night."
"Well, how about I take the couch tonight, we can wheel out his co-sleeper to the living room and I'll take care of him tonight (even thought I work)"
"No, I'll just wake up every time he cries and I won't be able to get back to sleep"
"Well, you could wear earplugs"
"No, my boobs will get engorged from not feeding him at night"
"Well, we'll get all the pump-stuff ready before you go to bed and you can have it all right next to the bed if you really need it."
"Now you're just being a jerk. Fine, I'll do it all myself. You don't need to worry about helping me. Are you happy now?"
