Thank God I live in the US, what do they teach in college over there?


(5/16/06 - LONDON, England) - He was, quite literally, out on a limb. And so on Tuesday, a drunken student who spent the night in a tree had to be rescued by British firefighters.

"Alcohol and climbing trees don't really mix," said Nigel Limbrick, of the Gloucestershire fire department. "In all seriousness, he could've killed himself if he had fallen.

"He had had a skinful and in his inebriated state he climbed 100 feet up a pine tree, without his shoes on. He then fell asleep," Limbrick said. "I'm not quite sure how he managed it, but he woke up wrapped around a branch."

The man, whose name has not been released, is a student at the Gloucestershire College of Arts and Technology in Cheltenham, about 100 miles west of London. He used his cell phone to call firefighters after waking up around dawn, chilly and confused, in the tree.

Eight firefighters needed 90 minutes and ropes and pulleys to get him down from his precarious perch. Paramedics at the scene treated him for some scratches, but he was otherwise uninjured.

"He was a bit quiet when he came down and a bit embarrassed," Limbrick said. "I think he got a bit cold up there. He only had his jeans and T-shirt on and he must have had quite a hangover."

Toodles!

He lied. He was really a graduate of the General Delivery University. This is the world's largest diploma mill with several million graudates, some of who are running nuclear weapons programs in India and Pakistan and some of whom are high ranking officials in the Bush Administration

Sometimes you just need a break!

Studying long hours, tired, having a few drinks = climbing a tree to sleep?! Maybe it is a British thing? LOL

PS-You and Hawks are different. Different is good. And bigger is not always better. Don't change a thing.

Well.. I hate to burst your bubble.. but this happens in the US too!!! Last fall: the Huskies (University of Washington) vs. the Cougers (Washington State) in the annual Apple Cup - huge rivalry. What hoppin? A dumb-ass Cougar decided to climb a tree in the tailgate parking lot...the Fire Department (my crew) had to rescue his dumba ass from the tree - he climbed up , but like a "cat" he couldn't get down. And better yet.. WE BEAT THEM!!! LOL!

I had the choice of studying in London or in the U.S.. I decided on the latter and firmly believe that it was one of my wisest decisions. I ended up staying for 11 years, all packed with wonderful memories.
Still, in all honesty, stupidity knows no geographical boundaries and I 've seen worse things done during my college years. And I 've certainly done my share too...
