The woman fell nearly 330 feet.

Wonder why this was on TMZ?

That'd be my luck...I'd try to end it all by jumping off the Blue Water Bridge and land on a freighter hauling Sertas. End up with a mattress coil up my ass.

You know you're having the worst day ever when you even fail at suicide. Ouch.

I think it helps when you fall with your bum.

This happened some weeks ago, I think she's fine now. Well...as fine as you can be when you fail at killing yourself by throwing off a 23rd floor.

Re: Woman jumps off 23rd floor of a Buenos Aires hotel...330 feet...and survives

I would imagine that the 2343 bones she broke will take a while to recover from, but otherwise she's probably doing great.

Personally, I hate people who kill themselves in this manner (or try, and somehow fail). Sure, risk killing somebody else by landing on them, or at best just ruining the day of hundreds of other people who have to see your dead body, you burning pile of crap. Seriously. Kill yourself in a bathroom or something. While I understand that people who are depressed enough to kill themselves aren't thinking about other people, I still want to bitch smack every last one of them for this.
