You're kidding right. Our society loves nothing better than watching endless video's of people being hurt or hurting themselves on purpose.
This fetish demonstrates a culture that has issues. Came up "short on the second of the course's four massive jumps". Tough shit. This is front page billing as well and is just not news.
