That reminds me of the story of an old wino who walks into a public restroom to relieve himself.
Upon glancing down into the toilet, he notices a dime resting on the bottom of the bowl.
He says to himself, "I may be a drunk and a low-life, but I am not about to reach my hand down into this toilet for a lousy dime."
He then reaches into his pocket, pulls out a quarter. Tossing the quarter into the toilet, he exclaims, "But, I'll do it for 35 cents!"

$20 bucks is $20 bucks lol.
I'd be interested in knowing how he got the broken collar bone... $10 perhaps lol.

$20? No, but for $100, maybe.

The kicker is that this guy already had a broken collar bone BEFORE he jumped 50' to retrieve the $20.
I wonder HOW he got that?

I was wondering tho too - how the heck he ensured his other money was safe - pocket I guess but still - heck of a risk for the $20.
I do recall back in early 90's when I was very strapped for cash - might even actually have been after I had gone back to University - at which time things were a mix of fresh air, peanut butter and jello!!!
Kids were down to stay and we went to the beach - not far in those days from where I lived. All I had was a 20 (pound) note. It crept out of my rear pants pocket and at the time was a major disaster - really hurt!
I'd draw the line tho at the risks of a 50' jump

Like the guy said, it just depends on how broke you are.

If you give a friend $20 and never see that friend again, it was worth it.
I think it is a riot. I would have done that a few times in my life, but not at the moment. I would run to the end of the bridge and try to get it down stream though.

Aw come on.
A 50' cannonball sounds like fun. And I get $20 to boot!
