Drinking and dangling don't mix

I know you'll be shocked to hear that alcohol was involved in this incident:
A British holidaymaker has died after a drunken prank at his Majorca hotel went horribly wrong.

The 27-year-old plunged more than 30 feet after losing his grip as he hung off his fifth-floor balcony and asked friends to count how long he could hold on for.
Yeah, it turns out not for very long, apparently.

I'm not exactly a teetotaler or anything (yeah, shocking, I know) but I learned long ago that getting really, really, totally smashed and standing upright isn't exactly easy, so I tend to avoid daredevil stunts while I'm in such a state.
