Suicide off of Dubai's tallest skyscraper
It's almost an epic fail, he couldn't even hit the ground haha..
so i guess the bomb failed to detonate?
eh, if you're going to do it, you might as well go out being the first to do it.
set a record. lol.
good for him.
First suicide by unsuccessfully jumping off a building?
first suicide on that building.
and first suicide by jumping off building and landing on the same building.
It was a joke. I understand what happened.
this whole thing is a joke. lol.
maybe he fell, or thought he could fly.
I wouldn't want to jump from something that high. Too much time to think while falling. What if you change your mind at the 80th floor?
I would think people would bring a magazine or something to read while waiting to hit the ground.
Don't know how true it is, but I heard that on long falls like that you pass out before hitting the ground.
Something to the extent of having a heart-attack, from the panic of impact, apparently..
Yip, that and that it's really hard to breath falling that fast.
Thats the first time I've ever seen someone be be sucuessful and fail at the same time.
Counter point, skydiving?
Much higher fall and they are fine. You die on impact. Hell, there have been skydivers with failed chutes that hit the ground and LIVED. If anyone's gonna die from a "heart attack" it'll be the guy who doesn't want to die and thinks he's going to in a few seconds, much less the guy who's trying to kill himself.
Yes, a couple have, but the vast majority of people that skydive aren't panicking, or thinking they are going to die.
until their chute fails to open... theres no way you ARENT shitting yourself at that point. If you can survive that (the undoubtedly stress-filled fall AND impact), then Id think someone trying to kill themselves, is expecting to die.
i just dont buy the "you die in free fall" crap.
i think it takes 8 seconds to land onthe ground from the empire state building so maybe 10 seconds, not that long to think about it
It may not be a long time to you and me, but I guarantee when you're falling from that kind of height 8-10 seconds would feel like 8-10 days.
