Has anyone here tried feeding jelly beans to a pregnant lioness??

stupidity definitely knows no limits... when it comes to stupid kids in Cornwall who get bored during the holidays and decide to throw themselves off the nearest cliffs...someone has actually coined a word for this stupidity [it really does not deserve to be called a 'sport']..VIZ.."tombstoning".

See the World's Best Photos of tombstoning at:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On May 11,2008,one Cornish youth threw himself off a 25-foot cliff at Sharrow Point in Whitsand Bay,Cornwall..the trouble was,the depth of the water he jumped into was only 3-foot deep.
RESULT: the coastguard had to airlift him to the nearest hospital with severe spinal injuries:

Going back to page 4 of this thread, re Tough Guy 2009 I have just seen some photos on facebook from this year's event!

Apparently the brother of one of our son's friends was in it. Can't comment because I don't know him.

I do know his bro' (our son's friend. Is this getting complicated????!!!).

Btw he plays for Chasetown FC and was in the team that got as far as the third round proper in the F.A. Cup being beaten by Cardiff City. This resulted in a photo of our son (with a banner supporting his chum) appearing in the Daily Mail.

Ok, ok Johnny - I know I'm waffling

:(
