    Mark Twain Riverboat

    Back a few years ago, I recall my friend sending me an email with a video of a man who jumped off the Mark Twain at Disneyland. They had other videos about it on YouTube a few years ago, but, now I can't find anything related to it.

    Have any of you seen or heard about this video?

    Like the old saying..."stupid is as stupid does". To some, hilariously funny. Personally I don't get the humor in it. All I see is stupidity, and like some of the other commenters, a big reason why everything has to be idiot-proofed nowadays.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    It's a particular form of stupidity which is, I'm embarrassed to say, a guy thing. Scientific studies suggest it is caused by a "stupidity gene," part of the guy genetic package as far back as homo erectus times. Back then, guys tried to impress other guys by diving off cliffs into solid ground. After thousands of years, most stupidity gene-bearing guys had removed themselves from the gene pool -- opening the way for the development of writing, art, and the advancement of civilization, the so-called "Golden Age of Guys."

    Which was swell until the 1960's, when a group of Madison Avenue guys (who tragically were born with their stupidity gene activated) invented Hot Movie Bimbos. Staring slack-jawed at posters of Raquel Welch and Suzanne Somers switched on the stupidity gene in millions of guys, resulting in offspring whose behavior we see today.

    I'm pretty certain it was Rock Hudson who activated my stupidity switch. Bimbo of another color!

    But, you're right, Wiggins, it is a guy thing for sure!

    BG? Hot, but orders of magnitude too intelligent.

    I'd stay and discuss, but it's time for my afternoon Whopper Bacon Cheeseburger, six pack of Bud and two hours of staring at a Paris Hilton poster.

    The water is very shallow. Of course, so is the jumper.

    Yes I don't know why the embedded square was added that never loaded I was trying to post a link that I found of the fool that jumped.
    Maybe the [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EN3jrVQzb0Q"]UTube link[/ame] will work better?

    Personally, I wish no link to that particular piece of garbage had worked.

    Less seen, the better.

    And just for the record, I am a guy. And have stared at more than my share of posters of beautiful women.

    There. I said it.

    The good news is that some guys are immune to the stupid gene, and behave in a rational manner. The bad news is that recently their numbers seem to be dwindling -- accompanied by an increase in such stupid-guy behavior as teen guys skateboarding off roofs; on-duty air traffic controller guys talking to their girlfriends; and bus drivers and commuter train engineers texting while crashing.
