    And with all these odds stacked against me I have still evolved into a better, more civilized, well educated and more respectable individual than you have.

    Cheers.

    I know for a fact that if you fall from more than 15m, you don't have to worry about fractures because the odds are you'll die. But under 15m, odds are you break something.
    Fair enough - but people escape fires from second story windows all the time with little injury - I just found it curious - maybe the first floor balcony overlooks a cliff.

    Again, I don't know. Can you state to an absolute certainty that people who fall from the first floor will be absolutely fine, no matter what?

    Ofc it does. But it doesn't mean we shouldn't raise awareness or ignore when it happens elsewhere.

    No, I can't - and it's not worth pursuing - I just found it odd that a 30 yr old woman would be so injured from such a fall, particularly when she jumped not accidentally tumbled over. But never mind, it's not important.

    Tourist advisories only work for those who read them and who take them to heart. No place will ever be perfectly safe; but I would tend to believe that the hotel owners and operators in NYC are not assisting (passively or actively) these people, while there seems to be a contention that these owners/operators in India are doing exactly that.

    So THAT'S why you say that Hollywood is full of Jews, they should all be killed.

    It's to show off all that respectability of yours
