Drunk man cheats evolution
It should have been extinction for Shane White, 25, of Staffordshire UK. In a drunken blackout, he stripped off his shirt and jumped from a footbridge to swing from a cable. Normally carrying 25,000 volts, the power cable happened to be turned off for seven minutes, for the first time in 15 months, at the time of the stunt. White dropped safely to the ground and remembered nothing until he saw his photograph, taken by a passerby, in the newspaper. Source.
