Watch out for that window!!

I just finished reading a tragic story about a boy that got so carried away with his air guitar routine (which included jumping on his bed) that he 'flew out of a third floor window to his death....

These types of stories make it so hard not to laugh at other's misfortunes. I know he died, but c'mon! Is Mick Jagar really worth it?

SINGAPORE - A teenage guitarist got so carried away while bouncing up and down on his bed mimicking a rock star that he flew out of a third floor window to his death, a Singapore newspaper reported.
The Straits Times said in Wednesday's editions that Li Xiao Meng, a 16-year-old from China who was studying at Singapore’s Hua Business School, was a keen musician who liked to jump up and down while playing his guitar in his hostel room.

Gives new meaning to term, "Playing your air guitar." Air. Guitar.

I mean, tragic kid jumping out of the window. Tragic. It's interesting that I know that a Korean kid jumped out of his window while pretending to be a rock star. It's interesting that of all of the stories on the planet, its the one's like these that interest people. New media is so strange... or maybe it's delivering exactly what people want, and it's the people that are so strange.
