    You think he feels bad. Wait until he gets a hold of his friend!!!

    I wonder how much he had to drink before he made the bet.

    I don't know, but I'd wreck a darned swing set before I'd stay in it nine hours screaming for help.

    Seriously. I would have dragged it home, behind me. When my kid was little, I'd occasionally get on a park playground swing with him. My 230lb butt quickly lifts those things right out of the ground...

    I found a better link with a photo of the type of swing. I can see where he might have had a problem. The darn things look indestructible...

    Another (true) idiot story:
    When I was serving in the Navy I had a coworker that was dating a hot but not so smart fitness instructor. One night she locked herself out of her house and instead of calling a locksmith or breaking a window she decided to climb down the chimney to let herself in. She squeezed down in and of course got stuck.

    I was at work when a friend called me into the breakroom to see what was on the news. It was our coworker giving a live interview on the evening news while the fire department was rescuing his GF in the background. The fire dept had to bring in a crane. Then they had to rig a sling that she could hold onto while they lifted her out. The funny part was that the news was live for the rescue and they had a big fat close up of her as they lifted her out of the chimney. She came out naked as a Jay bird with a full close up on live TV. It seems she thought she would be more likely to squeeze through if she were naked.

    She ended up being stuck in that chimney for (I think) 11 hours and then she gave the whole city of San Diego a free show on the way out. Needless to say my coworker received quite a bit of flack over the naked GF in the chimney incident.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
