So, how long before the WWF is sued in regards to this? Call me an insensitive lout, but how can someone make it into a university without thinking that smacking oneself into a glass window on a upper-story floor is a very bad idea?

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20020502/ap_on_re_us/students_killed_6

Two college students died early Thursday after they fell out a third-story window at a University of Kentucky dormitory while wrestling, a school spokeswoman said.

Jeffrey Pfetzer, a 19-year-old University of Kentucky freshman from Villa Hills, was pronounced dead at the scene. Matthew Rzepka, 22, of Bowling Green, who was visiting his brother at the 23-story Kirwan Tower, died later at the University of Kentucky Hospital.

"The two males were apparently wrestling in an open area of the third floor of the dormitory," spokeswoman Mary Margaret Colliver said. "They smacked against a plate glass window, the window gave out and the two fell three stories to the ground."

She said she didn't know if alcohol played a factor in the accident, which happened around 2:30 a.m. The window was a sealed, double-pane window, roughly 3 feet wide and 8 feet tall. It was covered with plywood after the accident.

Unfortunately, with most universities here in the U.S. as long as you have the money you can get in. Brains are not necessarily required.

Back in my RA days, my residents tried grilling chicken inside on an electric grill. They seemed really shocked when the fire alarms went off too. Geniuses.

Yes, because male college students NEVER do anything stupid in their dorms.

I say this as the as a member of the reigning championship drunken study lounge street hockey team at CMSU.

It's unfortunate that the word "wrestling" is even used in the story.

They should have said "horsing around" or "engaging in horseplay", 'cause that's what really happened.

It's not like the unlucky two were practicing moves they'd seen on TV or anything.

I wonder if the people around them started chanting "ECW! ECW!"

All in all, you're not a very nice person. Despite this, people tend to like you. Maybe it's because you're a rebel, or maybe it's just because you scare them into liking you. Or maybe it's because if an angle sucks, you take your toys and go home. Either way, you're still a beer-drinking badass from Victoria, Texas.

Lets see Finals ended today at UK, most students, like my sister, were finished Tuesday, so that left plenty of time to party before the parents come to help you pack for the summer. That all means:

Yup alcohol was involved. Plus having been to that dorm I don't think I have ever seen anyone there sober past 7 PM. Especially Freshmen.



I think if you are in the passing lane, and not passing, your license should be revoked, and you should be forced to ride the bus until you promise to never delay the rest of us again.

That's not entirely true. Most Universities require some form of book smarts... unfortunately common sense is not a requirement.

Common sense? Hell no. I hung out in the dorm kitchen a lot--University of California, no less. On one occasion, I stopped a girl from pouring extra plaster of Paris down the disposal. O_o It hardens under water, in case you didn't know. She certainly didn't.

Another time, someone had one of those cake mixes where you use the cardboard box as the baking pan. She read the instructions off the back: "30 minutes at 350 degrees? I'm in a hurry--what about 10 minutes at 550 degrees?" She reached for the oven dial. I persuaded her that would be a BAD idea. Compared to fire-starting, drunken third-story wrestling is probably not a big mortality factor for college students.

Well, the article doesn't make it clear if the two were doing general horseplay, amateur style wrestling, or "backyard" sports-entertainment stuff.

And yeah, collegiate folk are idiots. I work in a college neighborhood, so I can say this with authority.

"She said she didn't know if alcohol played a factor in the accident, which happened around 2:30 a.m."

My question is, if the WWF will be sued, why not Anheiser-Busch?



While working security at a local indy show, I saw Ricky Morton's bare ass, and the next time I hear anybody out there say "playing Ricky Morton", the person they mention had best have a really nice ass.

I'd say Edge/Eddy, since Edge/Angle had an annoying finish with the Benoit interference and that STUPID hit yourself in the head chair shot.
