404 Error

2017 Reader Submission
Pending Acceptance

Wendy says, "Added to the Archive."


In Rouen, France, a 47 years old man had been locked up by his dear mother to prevent him from intoxicating himself. Unfortunatly, her son had more imagination than she thought. The need for alcohol was to string and he decided to climb down the 9 stories building hanging from an ethernet cable. Being a bit more heavy than a few gigabites, the cable broke and the man crashed into the ground. The doctors couldn't reanimate him despite their efforts. But wouldn't he have found another way to remove himself from the gene pool ? (French) -or- English translation

Darwin says, rather than a 404 this would be 503 Server Overloaded

This man tried to climb down 9 stories on an ethernet cable??? That's definitely a new one for me. Thanks, Dorte!
