No disrespect to Haggart intended, but signs won't work, for reasons already illustrated. I imagine that some folks take heed, and others choose to ignore. Wasn't it last year that a woman was killed by jetwash in the Caribbean while hanging on to a fence with a sign hung on it saying don't do this?

It was two years ago and the sign wasn't hung on the fence. But it wouldn't have matter where it was displayed.

Of course the sign wasn't on the fence. That would have taken up valuable handhold space which keeps the tourists coming back.


SALUTE TO ALL!

I actually work in a tourist attraction, i can confirm that the general public take absolutely no notice of signs, that's why if company's want to block and area off, its with physical barriers that give you no option and not just a sign.

Yes. I think our generation ( I'm 51) was more reality based, if that makes sense.

We did have a kid jump out of a tree, into a swimming hole we had. He broke his neck hitting bottom, and died immediately. To make the story worse, the swimming hole was at the bottom of a very steep hill. One of the Ambulance attendants died of a heart attack during the rescue attempt. Sad day for out small community.


You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

That is sad WT.

Am almost a gen ahead of you WT and of the 5-600 kids I grew up with can't remember any fatalities from doing something stupid. We did some really stupid stuff. An example tho rather tame; tip a canoe deliberately in the middle of Mooney's Bay (almost 200 m to ether shore) and not wearing a life jacket (very early teens).


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Wow, that is crazy. 200 meters. I grew upon on Military bases, so our community size was very similar to yours.

My kids have had to deal with classmate suicides. It is so sad. 2 recent ones, both were only 14 yrs old.

Did a lot of stupid things in my teens but by 20 I was already working 80 to 100 hours a week. You work that many hours you tend to be too tired to do just about anything.
I do feel bad for her parents and the loss they are feeling at this time. You never expect for a child to pass away before you.

I have a canoe rider and i have hobies cat 16'' that is lightweight. I have great experience of canoeing spent 5 year on canoeing but i don't compromise on safety arrangements. With great experience i do not ride on canoe without life jacket so i am
shocked that How you can ride on canoe without life jacket.......?
some places not allowed boating without life jacket due to safety arrangements.

Don't agree with Blade much, but...this selfie stupidity is straight Darwinism.

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.
