Old May 16th, 2008, 11:14 AM        Guy takes running start in order to win a "who can spit furthest" contest off balcony
A SWISS man died when he fell from a hotel balcony during a spitting match with a friend, a Swiss newspaper has reported.

The daily Blick said the 29-year-old man took a run-up from inside the room so he could spit further, but lost his balance and plummeted 6.4m to the street below.

He died in hospital.

The man had suggested the contest when he and two friends returned from a disco to their hotel in Cadempino in Switzerland's Italian-speaking Ticino canton in the early hours.

One of the men went to sleep, but the two others decided to see who could spit furthest from the balcony of their room.


"Dear family,

Our Hotel regrets to inform you that your son died today because he was being a dumbass.

Regards."

Do they call clubs "discos" in Switzerland or do they really still disco?

We call discos discos and clubs clubs. As for your second question...I really don't know.

And I wouldn't take anything Blick says too precisely anyway.

Why is everybody saying this guy is stupid? Getting a running start to spit further is more intelegent than anything you fucks could ever come up with. While the other guy was wiping the drool off his shirt our guy had a physics equation running through his head, and then over the railing.
