Well, it's tough to say what it would take to withstand a 9 floor fall

Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

So would that be collision or comprehensive coverage?

And would the owner's insurance get asked to pay the medical bills?

I would NOT be surprised. Or if he sued the car owner that it interfered with his plans.

If the car could have withstood that fall, the jumper would be dead.

The story mentions others who were killed falling from lower heights.

It doesn't mention if they struck the ground or a car.

All the BMW's windows were probably up, trapping air and cushioning his fall.

One window down and he probably wouldn't be getting up.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

330i with a spot weld roof. Looks like the driver's side seam gave way.
He probably would have bounced off a 5, 6, or 7 series with continuous laser weld.
Or died on impact!
