There are no good ways to die, but that's one of the better ones.

Alternate headline they could have used: Florida family goes to extremes to avoid burial costs.

And I thought my house sucked.

You ever get that sinking feeling that your state hates you?

Is this how Florida repossesses your property when you don't pay your taxes?

And I thought my property value was dropping.

He should've financed with Rock Financial, instead of Sammy Sands' Loan office.

How long before they find the Chinese that were trying to tunnel into the country and kidnapping our citizens.

This will teach him not to use Lime Away on his lawn.

The evil mole people are starting to make their move.

Don't you hate dreams about falling?

Someone kicked in his sand castle.

What some people will do to get out paying their rent.

That started to load, then changed to a blank image with a "broken image" placeholder in the middle. Oh well, it's only Gawker.

You've never gotten up on Christmas morning, wandered over to check out your stocking, and had some obnoxious family member insist on taking photos of you next to the tree in your sleepwear?  That happens to me every year.

2013-03-03 07:57:07 PM  
In college someone once posted a newspaper article with the headline "Man Sucked to Death by Jet Blast". Next to it was a picture of a creepy guy from a different article that they'd changed the caption to "Jet Blast Takes a Break From Work".

In all seriousness, the poor man had little chance of survival. Most Florida homes are build on concrete slabs. So the unfortunate fellow fell into a collapsing pit of rock, sand and debris, maybe with water thrown in.

/Threadjack over.

911 operator: "Your wife is dead?"
Man: "I think so!"
911 operator: "I need you to make sure."
Man: "Ok, hang on."

Man: "Ok, I'm sure."

It's national "news."

While I have no urge to move to England nor to read a bunch of tabloids, I do feel we're missing out on such quality print headlines in Ametica.

I'm so glad Gawker media exists. Without it, how would whiny people know what to be upset about?
 
2013-03-03 08:32:46 PM  
This has been a problem long in the making. Florida has limestone with layers of clay and they have been over pumping the water table for years, causing the limestone to dissolve and crumble until the clay on top caves in.

I heard the story on the news here in Seattle. Actually, there are few things I hear on the news that I don't first read about on Fark, hours or days earlier.

Not-news is national news.

i wonder what headline theyre going to have for that ortho jew couple killed on their way to the hospital to deliver their (surviving) baby..

that would push obliterate boundaries of taste

This was from an American paper.  I think you're confusing the Daily News(shiatty tabloid in NYC) with the Daily Mail (even shiattier tabloid in England).
