I don't agree that it's human nature to laugh at the macabre. More a cultural nature....

Avoid the question then. It's easier that way.

Wellllllllllll.


Yeah, I know. I've done it myself and tripped the circuit.

But my points are still valid. I knew something was going to happen and I knew it could have been bad.

We are not saying people do not take risky actions, just that this risky action is way above your 'average' risk level.

By several magnitudes.

So it's the magnitude of it that makes it funny?

Ask the people laughing.

Yep, guy slipped. Pretty big moron right there.

Interesting the way some of you respond to a rather neutral story.

Is it not also cultural nature to "break the rules" then.
I like your input Joneselius, a lot in fact.

But I don't expect you can take the high and mighty stance of having never laughed at the inappropriate.
I don't make a habit of it, but what can I say the macabre does get me now and then.

Well for all we know the guy had a stroke or a heart attack and collapsed at an inopportune moment.

We don't know if it was idiocy that caused this.

It's the risk he took by ignoring the warnings and barriers.

It was idiocy that took him and his sister 200 yards off the path and near the acidic hot springs.

Condolences to his family.
Did they have to shoot the hot spring?

No. They managed to tranquilize it.

I genuinely feel sorry for the guy and his family. Unfortunately, some bad decisions don't come with a second chance.

Not a good way to go. I hope it was over quickly.

That's the rub right there... and believe me, I was young, a soldier, mighty, and did some very, very, stupid things... one more wrong thing and it would have been over stuff.

Luck? I don't know, but I am grateful I didn't die though very well could have, by my own decisions.

From what understand it was in the afternoon and the brother and sister were 200 yards -2 football fields off the path- on a a thin crust of boiled mineral earth, over an acidic, caldera-heated, lake....

In Yellow Stone. On a major attraction... with kids around.

I bet there was more then one child asking why they can't walk out to see the pretty edges at the time, watching it. Till the worst case scenario truly happened.

We sometimes fail to understand that there is almost someone watching, especially in a park like Yellow Stone.

It is too bad that he died...

In all honesty I remember playing on a cliff edge, over Gooseberry Falls, with my sister.. jumping across stream-lets...

Could have been me at his age.

RIP.

Yes we do, as it was idiocy to leave the path.... the path was there just to stop people doing what this idiot did.

To be fair, have you ever laughed at something you shouldn't have?
