DARWIN AWARD: Rock Out
Confirmed by Darwin
November 2006, Singapore | Picture a college dorm room.
Textbooks, dirty laundry, sexy posters, food wrappers, and
in the middle of it all, a 16-year-old male rocking out
to loud music. A typical student, a typical day.
But this particular student, bouncing on his bed as he rocked
out on his air guitar, was about to "take things too far,"
according to the coroner's report. Li Xiao Meng, a student
at Singapore's Hua Business School, bounced up and down on
his bed with such enthusiasm that he rocked himself right out
of the third-floor window.
Normally the windows are locked, but students reportedly
force the locks so they can sneak a cigarette. Perhaps
alluding to Ted Nugent's rock song, the court ruled it
a case of "Death By Misadventure."
"Did he fall, or did he dive into an imaginary mosh pit?"
"Dude! Where's my mosh pit?"
