So here's a story nearly worthy of BD status: our building has an atrium of sorts that's open from the ground floor up to the 4th. So yesterday, about 90 or so minutes after I left, someone fell from the 4th floor all the way down, right outside the section where we work. In fact, the woman who sits in front of me is on our emergency response team, and was there helping him before the ambulance arrived. Somehow, he survived. I didn't know him, and I don't know if anyone is sure if he fell or jumped. But I can imagine it being difficult to accidentally fall over the wall that runs along each floor.
Ouch!  Hard to believe he survived.  He will be very disappointed.
Apparently, the thud was sickening.
Update: he was in surgery all night, and didn't make it. Nate's roommate (who also works here) knew the guy, and it sounds like he wasn't in a good head space. Sounds like it was not an accident.
That is very sad.
Yeah, gonna be a weird day here.

Thanks. Good incentive this week as I get to catch the Clemson-BC game Saturday night.

I was thinking something similar would be nice. Instead, they brought in grief counselors.

We've got a get-together coming up soon to celebrate hitting $30 billion in written premium. Perhaps we'll get a snack of some sort there. ;)

Good morning, gents. The mouse part is over and my feet are thanking me. Now we're visiting every relative known to man from Broward County south. I turned off my Spanish translation brain about an hour ago. Now I'm just smiling and nodding.
