    I grew up on Panama City Beach. from age 5 to age 24.

    We used to lay bets on how many balcony divers we would have every year.

    I truly do not know what the fuck those kids are thinking...200+ feet above the ground, trying to crawl from room to room via the balconies. The room came with a door you fucking nitwits.

    I just say it's Darwin in action.

    I remember one who tried to fly from the balconey to the swimming pool. That didn't end well either.


    I wish parents would re think letting their kids go on spring break anywhere. It's not like the news doesn't show what an alcholol and drug orgy it is. Jeez.



    I am saddened for the loss of this young man's life.

    My heart goes out to this kid's family . My college kid spent her spring break vegged out on the sofa and we watched season 1 of Arrested Development. Yes, I know how lucky I am.

    I grew up in a beach town myself. Charleston during school and Myrtle Beach in summer. My father owned a Hardee's one street over from Ocean Blvd where the hotels were. Every morning the staff from these hotels would tell us about some kid that jumped or fell from a balcony.

    I feel for his family.

    When I think of all the stupid things we did when I was a young man, I marvel that any of us survived.

    I have a list of chums who didn't.

    Don't we all?

    At times it seems amazing that we make it to be adults
