Kid POsts "It's Better To Die From Vodka Than Boredom" Then Dies After Taking 25 Shots Of Vodka in 60 Seconds
DailyMail- Humberto Moura Fonseca, 23, had been partying at the university of Julio de Mesquita in the city of Bauru, in southwest Brazil, when organisers suggested the drinking game to see who could drink 25 shots in less than 60 seconds.
His friend Rodrigo Pancetti, 23, said: 'We were all having a great time and someone came up with the idea of the drinking competition.
'I knew I'd already had too much and there was no way I was going to be able to drink five, let alone 25. But Humberto and the others were really up for it.
'On his Facebook there is a quote, a motto, from the Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky which says it is better to die from vodka than from boredom. I never thought that would become reality.
...And he was never bored again. I'm pretty sure if you think outside of the box that qualifies as a happy ending.
Too bad I couldn't be there to refute his argument before he went all Russian on everyone and decided to prove us wrong. I got to say, I am going to disagree with him here. Being bored does indeed suck, but it's not something you can die of. I have spent a varying portion of my day bored nearly every day of my life. By all accounts, I am still in pretty good health. Even if you could die from boredom it would probably involve all the Netflix, a shit load of food, maybe a couple beers, and an eternal resting place on the couch. I think dying of boredom would compare favorably to dying of natural causes. Hell, that sounds like just about the best way to die ever if we're being honest. Certainly sounds more peaceful than taking a liter of Absolut straight and incinerating my organs from the inside out. Still, got to respect his dedication to the cause. Can't just post about dying from vodka consumption on the internet and not at least give the alcohol a puncher's chance. Looks like this one was a first round TKO.
Not one of his friends could have mentioned to him that it's not the boredom that kills you, but what you do to cure said boredom? Likkkkke...25 shots for instance. There's a lot of things that can be quite the elixir for boredom. This kid really needed to choose enough vodka to give his chest hairs a perm? Maybe I need to brush up on my narcotical geography, but I am pretty sure a little reefer madness is prevalent in Brazil. Not for nothing, but I am choosing boredom over 25 shots of vodka every time. Shit, I was an alcoholic in college. I might, by definition, still be one now. Still, there's not a single time in my life that I would have chosen anymore than 5 shots of vodka over a couple beers, some glaucoma medication, and a nice nap.
Rest In Peace Boredom. Born 1992- Died 2015.
P.S. What the hell is someone in Brazil drinking vodka for? If I had to guess the kid probably would have survived 25 shots of tequila. Worm and all.
