34 is pretty old to be that dumb. And 3:30 in the afternoon is pretty early to be that drunk.

No, hope died right after the 2016 elections.

A guy from Ohio at a beach in South Carolina. This is totally normal, unfortunately.

They ruled the death an accident.
No that was not an accident, it was a perfectly predictable outcome of doing a handstand on a 15 story balcony.  THIS is why we can't have nice things.  Now there will be a lawsuit and all balconies will be enclosed or removed.
This is why mcdonalds milk containers have a warning they contain milk and my jar of nuts (haha) have a warning it contains nuts.

There needs to be a category for death certificates called stupidity and insurance companies should not cover and death ruled stupid.
I hope this guy left the earth before he was able to pass on his genetic material

Atropos is the last of the Three Fates. In fact, I'm so into mythology, I have a three headed dog. Odd thing is that when someone visits my house, he won't let them leave.

This.  Just like dying because you decided to kick a Bengal tiger in the balls is not an accidental death.  The death was entirely intentional and self inflicted.

In English law that the coroner would describe this as misadventure not just an accident - basically an accident caused by someone purposefully doing something dangerous. e.g. dying from walking on train tracks, drugs overdose, or jumping into a lion's enclosure etc.may all be classified misadventure.

And yet Hope springs eternal!  Essentially, hope is an undead creature; a wight eternally rising from the grave, luring in the naïve with promise, then dashing their aspirations against cold reality in its own felo-de-se.

The consequences for doing that don't have an age limit though...Just because it wasn't in Florida,
