All my years I've never been: "both of us fall off a cliff" drunk.

If I ever find myself in a position where I'm considered an "Instragram Influencer," any of you farkers has permission to pull the gun out of my backpack and shoot me with it. My family won't even sue. My dad will say, "An instawhat in the who now?" And my mom will say, "I won't even put that app on my phone. I just thought he was on the Facelook thing."

Yes, subby, sometimes you can only quit drinking after you've hit rock bottom.

Nothing of value was lost ...unless they spilled a good drink on the way down.

I have a feeling that if I knew what an Instagram influencer is it would piss me off.

Just say no to selfies.

It wasn't the fall that killed them.


It was the sudden stop at the end.
 
2019-01-19 08:56:35 AM  
Subby, they weren't just drunk, they were DRUNK.

Get it right.

"Moorthy had used her social media accounts to talk about her severe 'tentacles of depression' and mental health issues."

Suicide.

All I know about them was they were used to promote that Fyre festival, so they're definitely not good people.

Slowly eaten alive by ants, for instance.

Somewhere my Pop has a couple of pictures of me sitting on Taft Point with my legs hanging over the edge, looking down at the valley floor.

I was 12 years old, and I think that was also the first real moment where I realized that gravity is a seriously important aspect of one's life and not to be taken lightly.

It's a long way down.

Yes... How about stuck behind a dump truck full of hot asphalt and they dump it on your car with you and your spouse in it. Yep true story! Dead, Dead, Dead.

Normally a young woman with mutant eyebrows and no job. This is an example of the Youtube version:

A influencer is somebody who gets popular enough on social media that they make money doing advertisements.

1) congrats to this year's Darwin award winner (tie).
2) what's an "Instagram influencer"? Do they influence others to do the same things?

Sorry, I'm old fashioned and really just have Facebook.

I think she did - there is a picture of her sitting there alone in the background of someone else's selfie and then she was gone.  I think HE fell and she jumped after - if she already had depression issues and added alcohol to the mix then saw her partner fall off a cliff...

More like Under the Influencers, amirite?
 
2019-01-19 09:51:26 AM  
The autopsy found they died 'of multiple injuries to the head, neck, chest and abdomen, legs, feet, toes, chest, knees, hair, teeth, buttocks,fingernails, nose, ears, self-esteem, sustained by a fall from a mountain'

Filled that in a little more for them.

Took a tour bus to the grand canyon once from Los Vegas. The bus driver told everyone wearing a hat if the wind blew their hat off to just let it go. Apparently he once watched a guy run off the edge of the canyon chasing his hat.

Those can be found at any establishment with 'adult' beverages.

+1 for Nathan Hale reference.

/his "Hazardous Tales" are great and would interest any history buff

If a few if their Instagram "followers" become inspired to follow suit, then I'd consider it a job well done.
 
2019-01-19 10:21:42 AM  
My last visit to the Grand Canyon I watched a couple cross over the safety rail and get really close to the edge to take a "nothing but air behind us" selfie.

I considered pulling out my phone and recording them because hey....you never know.
