The old ones...

On Channel 5 news, just before the cricket highlights, there was a section devoted to "tombstoning", the mildly insane practice of jumping of buildings, groynes, piers etc into the sea that is currently much in vogue among deliquent children in the south.

As if to prove that there is no bad joke that cannot be made by accident, the mother of one of these ornaments of society expressed as her opinion that it would be impossible to stop the little bastards jumping into the sea. The main reason? Why peer pressure of course.

I thank you.

Is jumping in the sea against the law now too? How many casualties are actually caused by this, and do they place an unreasonable strain on society?

Haha, see? So long, suckers - AAAaaaaaaggghhhh THUD splash -
