If it doesn't involve picking up a dime from the floor without using her hands, feet or mouth, I'm not interested.

You see? this is why until recently Baylor banned dancing altogether.  "That's backwards and opressive" you said,  "what's the worst that can happen?", you said,  well I hope you are all happy NOW

Yes.

Kevin Signo, a freshman at Baylor University, died from injuries he suffered while doing a backflip during a dance session with the Filipino Student Association.


I chuckled at the unfortunate wording, then serioused.

I've seen like a million failed flip attempts on YouTube. I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often.
 
2013-03-05 03:25:22 PM  
I've been watching lots of "fail" videos lately on youtube and have seen many flips gone wrong and I wonder how the hell they can just bounce right back up after landing on their neck/head.  I guess you don't always bounce right back up.


/sucks for him, he looked like a pretty cool dude with a bright future

he was asian, so it might be a rather small endowment

Damn, nothing ever changes.  Thirty-five years ago I had a Filipino college roommate. It was a big University but we knew of absolutely no other Filipinos there.  Manuel was kind of a shy guy anyway and didn't hit it off well in our rednecky social sphere.  Then one day I had to go to the university hospital (another CSB, or maybe S[tupid]SB) and Manuel took me over there.  In Emergency we ran into a Filipina nursing student, really cute.  She and Manuel immediately started conversing in Tagalog. Turned out there were a couple of dozen other Filipinas in her nursing school class.  We saw very little of Manuel after that. He went through them like a bolo through Manila Grass. We'd constantly get phone calls from curiously-accented females wanting to chat with him. Eventually we stopped covering for him and told them all, "he's out on a date".

/he eventually married a white girl, professional-quality dancer like him
//go figure

I've noticed individuals using prepared speeches to coerce people into giving up their organs on different forums over the last few months. Clearly some group persuaded them to do it.

It's already an option on our licenses, and there's PSAs everywhere reminding us. Facebook wants our organs, too. Everyone knows about organ donation and many people do it. To take it a step further with the kind of hard sell they're doing on different forums and things kind of creeps me out. As if their lust for organs knows no limit.

Makes you wonder if they shouldnt take a short rest from thinking about other peoples deaths sometimes doesnt it? Im not saying they are likely to try to live out these things they are daydreaming about. But they do seem a bit obsessed about other peoples fair deaths and organ distributon.
