Oh, Shut Up and Jump Already

Comcast.net wrote:BEIJING — Chen Fuchao, a man heavily in debt, had been contemplating suicide on a bridge in southern China for hours when a passer-by came up, shook his hand — and pushed him off the ledge.

"I pushed him off because jumpers like Chen are very selfish. Their action violates a lot of public interest," Lai was quoted as saying by Xinhua. "They do not really dare to kill themselves. Instead, they just want to raise the relevant government authorities' attention to their appeals."

I didn't know you were in China last week, Madison. :-D

O:-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Since he survived, the pusher solved all his problems. Now that would-be jumper can sue the pusher and get out debt.

Also I like how he landed on a partially inflated emergency air cushion. It says he'd been up there for five hours so how long does it take to fill one of those things? Or maybe they decided he wasn't really gonna jump so they started deflating it shortly before the guy got pushed. :-b

I don't know how much stock you can put into government-controlled press releases, but if true...pretty funny.
