    Dear God is there any hope for the human race at all. This bloke is definitely a candidate for a Darwin Award.

    I don't get it. How did he die if he had air? Other than that, yes it was pretty stupid.

    Our family always say that things like coffins/caskets have 'spirits' (or 死神... something like that) and you are not supposed to do anything silly with them.

    True enough, there was once... One of my uncle's friends went to a casket store...

    He patted the casket and said that 'this would fit me perfectly!'

    The next morning, he died.

    He DIDN'T have ANY medical condition, is medically fit and healthy!

    I'm not exactly buddhist/taoist who believes in spirits and stuff but this kind of stuff? Best not to meddle.

    He definitely deserved that award.

    I found this quite funny actually. Maybe it was the universe's way of saying "The most luck you'll have is when you're dead."

    i'm half joking. if i was the friend he asked, it'd be okay for me, but i'll supervise him properly. every second.
    it's fun to do experiments.

    So does his friend get charged anything? Aiding or abetting (not sure how to spell that?)? Or manslaughter? Or accidental death/suicide? I'm just curious what they would call that in serious terms?

    you shouldn't laugh if other people are serious about something. it's be a bit rude.
    unless he's joking too... i can't read the atmosphere.
