Texting Lemmings

A funny Bachelor Party Bungee Jump prank 
at a Norwegian bachelor party where the bachelor
 is tricked into thinking he’s going to be jumping off an old wooden bridge. 
The bachelor isn’t exactly thrilled to make this jump 
while blindfolded but after some reassurances 
from his mates he works up the courage and makes the jump.




Aicatraz Prison, often known as the "Rock,"
 is on a small island in San Francisco Bay. 
Alcatraz has long been the most famous prison in America.
 It started as a military prison during the Civil War 
and became a federal prison in the early part of the twentieth century.
 When it closed in the 1960s,
 it had housed such famous con men as the Birdman of Alcatraz and Al Capone.
 Within the world of federal penitentiaries,
 Alcatraz attracted a lot of prospective guards to tend the prisoners.
 Sometimes two and three generations of the same family
 had members working as guards at the "Rock."

In one local San Francisco family,
 working at Alcatraz spanned three generations,
 but unfortunately, not a fourth.
 One young man was not destined it seemed to follow 
in his father's, grandfather's, and great-grandfather's footsteps.
 As is common with the new generation, 
this young man preferred a more professional calling,
 and he graduated from law school, became a district attorney, 
and finally built a successful private practice.
 He was asked several times to become an officer at Alcatraz, 
and he was even asked to consider becoming the warden. 
Yet his private practice consumed too much of his time.

After several government inquiries, 
he always demurred, always refusing the honor of heading the prison. 
Finally, in 1963, he decided to retire from law 
having built a secure nest egg, 
and he himself asked if the warden's job was still available.
 Unfortunately, the Justice Department had decided to close Alcatraz,
 and when the federal officials told him that no there 
would be no job at Alcatraz for him, he could only reply,
 "I coulda been a con tender.
